The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?


Good evening. I'm Doctor Emmett Brown and I'm standing here in the parking lot at Twin Pines Mall. It is Saturday morning, October 26, 1985, 1:18 A.M. and this is temporal experiment number one. Please note that Einstein's clock is in precise synchronization with my control watch.

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious shit.

Ha! What did I tell you?! EIGHTY-EIGHT MILES PER HOUR!!! The temporal displacement occurred exactly 1:20 AM and zero seconds!

Einstein's clock is exactly one minute behind mine and still ticking!

Oh my god... they found me. I don't know how, but they found me. RUN FOR IT MARTY!

My God. Do you know what this means? It means that this damn thing doesn't work at all!

I'm sure that in 1985, plutonium is available in every corner drug store, but in 1955 it's a little hard to come by. Marty, I'm sorry, but I'm afraid you're stuck here!

(after reading the flyer) This is it! This is the answer! It says here that a bolt of lightning is going to strike the clock tower at precisely 10:04 PM next Saturday Night! If we could somehow... harness this lightning; channel it into the Flux Capacitor, it just might work. Next Saturday night, we're sending you back to the future!

[pointing at a poster for a dance] Look! There's a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up!

Please excuse the crudity of this model as I didn't have time to build it to scale or paint it.

Don't worry. As long as you hit that wire with the connecting hook at precisely 88 miles an hour, the instant the lightning strikes the tower... everything will be fine!

It works! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! IT WORKS! I finally invent something that works. Somehow, we've gotta sneak this back to my laboratory. We gotta get you home!

You're not thinking fourth dimensionally!

Well looky what we have here.
