Can I help?
[speaks with Scottish dialect] No thanks, no, no no... I just popped in to say `hello'. [shakes Ebenezer's hand] Spirit of Christmas; how do you do. Just doing my usual rounds, you know: a wee bit of haunting, getting misers to change their evil ways. But you're obviously such a good chap [pats Ebenezer on the knee], there'll be no need for any of that nonsense, so I'll just say `cheery-bye'. Cheery-bye! [turns to leave]
Well, can I get you a cup of tea or anything?
Whole script here.
