That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me.

For no other reason than because I feel like it, here's my favorite scene from one of my favorite Christmas movies, Scrooge starring Albert Finney, Alec Guinness, and at least in this scene, Anton Rodgers.

Sure, it's morbid and mean-spirited, but it's a real toe-tapper, and it gets re-staged in a more upbeat, holiday appropriate manner in the end, so there's that. Plus, Rodgers is just all kinds of awesome. He was one of the better #2s on The Prisoner (in the episode "The Schizoid Man"), and he was terrific as an older, Perry Mason-fixated lawyer falling in love with a young teacher in the British sitcom May to December.
