Christmas Morning

"Winchester's Christmas Carol"
Act Three
Scene One:

Scrooge wakes up. He is in his bedroom.

Scrooge: I'm not dead! I'm alive!

He rushes to the window, leans out too far, and falls out. A boy rushes over.

Boy: Hey, Mister, you all right?

Scrooge: Never better! Do you know what day this is?

Boy: Sure I do. It's Christmas!

Scrooge: Then I didn't miss it after all! Is that turkey still in the poultry shop window?

Boy: The one as big as me? I should say so!

Scrooge: (digging in his pocket) Go and buy it.

Boy: What, are you bonkers?

Scrooge: Bring the turkey back here in less than five minutes and I'll give you half a crown.

Boy takes off running.

Scrooge: Ah, Christmas Day! More than anything, I am grateful the night is over so I can get out of this ridiculous nightshirt!

He goes back in his house, singing "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen."

End of Scene One

Well, we had to make some changes from the original book. Sort of a cross between the book and the TV show, "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol."
It's called artistic license!
