Full quotes part 1
POOR MAN 1: Merry Christmas.
Merry Christmas to one and all.
POOR MAN 2: Give a penny for the poor, governor. Penny for the poor.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: My partner, Jacob Marley, dead seven years today. He was a good one. He robbed from the widows and swindled the poor. In his will, he left me enough money to pay for his tombstone. And I had him buried at sea.
MICKEY MOUSE AS BOB CRATCHIT: Good morning, Mr. Scrooge.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Cratchit, what are you doing with that piece of coal?
BOB CRATCHIT: I was just trying to thaw out the ink.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: You used a piece last week. Now, get on with your work, Cratchit.
BOB CRATCHIT: Speaking of work, Mr. Scrooge, tomorrow is Christmas, and I was wondering if I could have half a day off.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Christmas? I suppose so. But I'll dock you half a day's pay. Now, let's see, I pay you two shillings a day.
BOB CRATCHIT: Two shillings and a half penny, sir.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Oh, yes. I gave you that raise three years ago.
BOB CRATCHIT: Yes, sir, when I started doing your laundry.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: All right, Cratchit, get busy while I go over my books. And here. Here's another bundle of shirts for you.
BOB CRATCHIT: Yes, sir.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Let's see now, 50 pounds, 10 shillings from McDuff. Plus his 80% interest compounded daily. Money, money, money.
DONALD DUCK AS NEPHEW FRED: Merry Christmas.
BOB CRATCHIT: And a Merry Christmas to you, Master Fred.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Bah, humbug.
NEPHEW FRED: Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: What's so merry about it? I'll tell you what Christmas is, it's just another work day. And any jackanapes who thinks else should be boiled in his own pudding.
BOB CRATCHIT: But, sir, Christmas is a time for giving. A time to be with one's family.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: I say, bah, humbug.
NEPHEW FRED: I don't care, I say, Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas.
BOB CRATCHIT: Well said, Master Fred.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Cratchit, what are you doing?
BOB CRATCHIT: I was just trying to keep my hands warm, sir.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: And what are you doing here, nephew?
NEPHEW FRED: I've come to give you a wreath and invite you to Christmas dinner.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Well, I suppose you're going to have plump goose with chestnut dressing.
NEPHEW FRED: Yup.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: And will you have plum pudding and lemon sauce?
NEPHEW FRED: Yeah. Boy, oh, boy.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: And candied fruits with spiced sugar cakes?
NEPHEW FRED: Yeah. Will you come?
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Are you daft, man? You know I can't eat that stuff. Here's your wreath back. Now out, out, out. Bah, humbug.
NEPHEW FRED: Merry Christmas.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: And a "bah, humbug" to you.
BOB CRATCHIT: That Fred, always so full of kindness.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Aye, he always was a little peculiar. And stubborn. Customers. I'll handle this, Cratchit. Yes, what can I do for you two gentlemen?
COLLECTOR FOR THE POOR 1: Sir, we are soliciting funds for the indigent and destitute.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: For the what?
COLLECTOR FOR THE POOR 2: We're collecting for the poor.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Well, you realize if you give money to the poor, they won't be poor anymore, will they?
COLLECTOR FOR THE POOR 2: Well...
SCROOGE MCDUCK: And if they're not poor anymore, then you won't have to raise money for them anymore.
COLLECTOR FOR THE POOR 1: Well, I suppose ...
SCROOGE MCDUCK: And if you don't have to raise money for them anymore, then you would be out of a job. Please, gentlemen, don't ask me to put you out of a job. Not on Christmas Eve.
COLLECTOR FOR THE POOR 1: We wouldn't do that, Mr. Scrooge.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Well, then, I suggest you give this to the poor and begone. What's this world coming to, Cratchit? You work all your life to get money, and people want you to give it away.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Two minutes fast. Well, never mind those two minutes. You may go now.
BOB CRATCHIT: Thank you, sir. You're so kind.
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Never mind the mushy stuff. Just go. But be here all the earlier the next day.
BOB CRATCHIT: I will. I will, sir. And a bah humbug..., I mean, a Merry Christmas to you, sir!
SCROOGE MCDUCK: Bah. NOTE: To watch the pictures in high resolution, click on them
The title of the book has the word "carol" in it, which in Dickens' time, was defined as "a song celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ" and for this reason, Dickens calls the chapters of the book "staves, which means the stanzas of a song."
Published by Chapman and Hall on 19 December 1843, A Christmas Carol was an immediate success with the public, selling out its initial print run of 6,000 copies by Christmas Eve.
Mickey's Christmas Carol is the last movie where Clarence Nash provides the voice of Donald Duck and the first where Wayne Allwine provides the voice of Mickey Mouse.

Also you can watch Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas (tells a story for us all to hear, about laughter and family, and those we hold dear. We love Christmas so much, we want it to stay. But what if we wished it was here every day?)
Mickey & Minnie's Gift of the Magi (not fancy, flashy or special at all but this gift can be given by the rich or the poor, it's a gift of the heart, and it means so much more)
A Very Goofy Christmas (this Christmas they'll learn before the night's through, if we care for each other, our dreams can come true)
Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas (One time a year, there's a marvellous night, when enchantment and wonder spark and take flight. Each home fills with joy on this grand holiday, with hearts growing warm in a magical way.)
