Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?!


First, you turn the time circuits on. This one tells you where you're going. This one tells you where you are. This one tells you where you were. You input your destination time on this keypad. Say you want to see the signing of the Declaration of Independence [Jul. 4, 1776] or witness the birth of Christ [Dec. 25, 0000]. Here's a red-letter date in the history of science: November 5, 1955. Yes! Of course! November 5, 1955! That was the day I invented time-travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation! A vision! A picture in my head! A picture of this! This is what makes time travel possible: the flux capacitor! It's taken me nearly thirty years and my entire family fortune to realize the vision of that day. My God, has it been that long? Things have certainly changed around here. I remember when this was all farmland as far as the eye could see! Old man Peabody owned all of this! He had this crazy idea about breeding pine trees.

1.21 GIGAWATTS!!!

[looks at his watch] Damn! Where is that kid! [looks at another watch] Damn! [and another] Damn, damn!

(to Marty) Since you're new here, I'm gonna cut you a break... today. So why don't you make like a tree... and get outta here!

(1985 Biff) My insurance? It's your car! Your insurance should pay for it, hey I wanna know who's going to pay for this? I spilled beer all over when that car smashed into me, who's going pay my cleaning bill? And where's my reports?

(1955 Biff) You got my homework finished, McFly?

Lorraine: Do you have a television set?
Marty: Well, yeah, you know we have two of them.
Milton Baines: Wow! You must be rich.
Stella Baines: Oh, honey, he's teasing you. Nobody has two television sets.
Marty: Hey! Hey, I've seen this one! This is a classic. This is where Ralph dresses up as a man from space.
Milton Baines: What do you mean you've seen this? It's brand new.
Marty: Yeah, but I saw it on a... re-run.
Milton Baines: What's a re-run?
Marty McFly: You'll find out.

Doc Brown: 1.21 GIGAWATTS!?! 1.21 gigawatts! Great Scott!!!
Marty: Wait... what the hell is a gigawatt?!

[Marty in his radiation suit puts his headphones over the sleeping George's head and wakes him up with loud music by Edward Van Halen.]
George: Wh-who are you?
[Marty plays loud music again.]
Marty: Silence earthling! My name is Darth Vader. (heavy breathing) I am an extraterrestial from the planet Vulcan! [Gives Vulcan salute]

George: Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn't ask Lorraine out that he'd melt my brain.
Marty: Okay George, let's just keep this brain melting stuff to ourselves, okay?
George: Oh yeah, right.

George: (opens car door) Hey you, get your damn hands off...(sees Biff with Lorraine; Biff looks back at George) Oh.
Biff: I think you picked the wrong car, McFly.
Lorraine: George! Help me! Please!
Biff: Just close the door, McFly and walk away. (George looks on.) Are you deaf, McFly? Close the door, and beat it!
George: No Biff, you leave her alone!
Biff: All right, McFly (emerges from car). You asked for it...and now you're gonna get it! (George attempts to punch, but Biff blocks and twists his arm. George squirms in pain)
Lorraine: Biff, Biff, no! You'll break his arm. (Gets out of car and jumps Biff on his back) Biff, LEAVE HIM ALONE!
(Biff shoves Lorraine into the ground and laughs as he looks away from George, who is let go. An angry George balls his left hand into a fist. Biff looks back at George in time to see the fist connect with his face and gets knocked out.)
George: (gasps at having punched Biff, and offers his hand to Lorraine) Are you okay?
(Lorraine takes his hand and they walk back to the dance as kibitzers surround Biff.)
