Eleanor Scrooges’ Christmas Eve begins with a visit from a man whose company she has just bought out from under him. Then come the Homeless Helpers asking for a donation. Scrooge sends them away crying. It’s bad enough there are beggars. Now there are beggar’s beggars?
Later, the ghost of the recently deceased Marley surprises her when he looks over her shoulder and tells her to sell one of the stocks she is currently holding. Marley does have insider information now. The other advisors follow. Past has a Russian accent, Present is a cockney who hasn’t brushed her teeth in over two hundred years and Future is, well, a man of few words.
