    • Sam: Sir! Maybe you can find a way to accommodate both your needs. Blake: Pearson! You’re way out of line! Sam: Yah...Yes Sir. Blake: I think you should worry about your job and let me worry about mine. Al: Which is being a grouch! Blake: What did you say? Well … (Blake steps backwards and faces Al, who is speechless.) Calloway: Who are you talking to Sir? Blake: I’m talking to this jerk! Right here! (Al has punched the hand link to disappear) Well...where did he go? Sam: (Looking around) Who? Blake: Never mind Pearson!

    • Al: He's a real scrooge. Sam: Yeah, well, you can say that again. Al: Scrooge! Sam: Al. Al, you're a genius. Al: I am. Sam: Yes, you are. Al: I am? Sam: Absolutely. Michael is Scrooge, right? He's alone, he's miserable. It's like, uh, Charles, um... Al: Dickens. Sam: ...um, Dickens, it's like he created his character based on this guy. Al: So? Sam: So, we Scrooge him.

    • Sam: I wonder if he would have knocked on that door if you hadn't put the star up there. Al: (stuttering) I didn't put the star up there! Sam: Merry Christmas, Al. Al: Merry Christmas, Sam.

    • Blake: I don't wanna die alone...Hated, forgotton! Sam: There's still some time to change things, sir.

    Trivia (3)

    • When one of the old pictures of Michael Blakes family is shown, his birth year was 1920, as he was 8 years old in 1928. But the date of birth on his headstone towards the end of his "Future-Scrooging" scene shows he was born in 1922.

    • At the end of the closing credits Dean Stockwell and Scott Bakula express their holiday wishes with "Merry Christmas everyone!"

    • When Sam is leaping and the bright light begins to cover the screen, everything surrounding Sam usually freezes but this time you can see Al moving his arms.
