  • Trivia

    • 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.

  • Quotes

    • 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.

      Sam: Merry Christmas, Al.
      Al: Merry Christmas, Sam.
