Marty: Lorraine!
Lorraine: Marty, that was very interesting music.
Marty: Yeah.
Lorraine: I hope you don't mind, but George asked if he could take me home.
Marty: Well, that's great! (Touches Lorraine's chin with his finger) I had a feeling about you two.
Lorraine: (Blushes) I have a feeling too...
Marty: Listen, I got to go, but I just want to tell you that it's been...educational.
George: (Shakes Marty's hand) Marty, I want to thank you for all your good advice. I'll never forget it.
Lorraine: Marty, will we ever see you again?
Marty: I guarantee it. Well, good luck you guys. (Walks away, and turns back) Oh, and one other thing, if you guys ever have kids (Lorraine is agape with surprise), and one of them, when he's eight years old accidentally sets fire to the living room rug? Go easy on him.
Lorraine: (as soon as Marty is out of sight) Marty... such a nice name.

George: Oh, hey, Biff. Hey, guys. How are you doin'?
Biff: Do you got my homework finished, McFly?
George: Well, I figured since it wasn't due till Monday -
Biff: Hello? Hello? Anybody home, huh, Think, McFly! Think! I gotta have time to recopy it. Do you realize what what would happen if I handed in my homework in your handwriting? I'll get kicked out of school. You wouldn't want that to happen would ya? WOULD YA?!

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

Doc Brown: Ha! What did I tell you?! 88 miles per hour! The temporal displacement occurred exactly 1:20 AM and zero seconds!
Marty McFly: Jesus Christ, Doc! You disintegrated Einstein!
Doc Brown: Calm down Marty. I didn't disintegrate anything. The molecular structure of both Einstein and the car are completely intact!
Marty: Then where the hell are they?
Doc Brown: The appropriate question is when the hell are they! You see, Einstein has just become the world's first time traveler! I sent him into the future! One minute into the future to be exact! And at precisely, 1:21 A.M. and zero seconds, we shall catch up with him and the time machine!
Marty: Wait a minute, wait a minute Doc, uh, are you telling me you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?!
Doc Brown: The way I see it, if you're going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style? Besides, the stainless steel construction made the flux dispersal...(watch beeps) Look out! (time machine comes back)

Doc Brown: Obviously your mother is amorously infatuated with you instead of your father.

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.)
Female Student: Who is that guy?
Male Student: That's George McFly.
Female Student: That's George McFly?

George: Hey you get your damn hands off her! Do you really think I oughta swear?
Marty: Yes, definitely. Goddammit George, swear!

George: I don't know what I should say.
Marty: Well say anything, George. Say the first thing that comes to your mind.
George: Nothing's coming to my mind.
Marty: Jesus, George. It's a wonder I was ever born.

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.

Jennifer (after Marty discovers his new truck): How about a ride, Mister.
Marty: Jennifer! Oh man, are you a sight for sore eyes. Let me look at you.
Jennifer: Marty, your acting like you haven't seen me in a week.
Marty: I haven't.
Jennifer: Is everything okay? Is everything going all right?
[Marty looks back at his parents]
Marty: Oh, yeah. Everything's great (as they are about to kiss, Doc Brown's time machine appears)
Doc Brown: Marty! You've got to come back with me!
Marty: Where?
Doc Brown: Back to the future.
[Doc opens a trash can]
Marty: Whoa, wait a minute, what are you doing, Doc?
Doc Brown: I need fuel. Go ahead, quick. Get in the car!
Marty: No, no, no, no, no, no, Doc. I just got here, alright, Jennifer's here, we're gonna take the new truck for a spin.
Doc Brown: Well, bring her along. This concerns her too.
Marty: Whoa, wait a minute, Doc. What are you talking about? What happens to us in the future? What, do we become assholes or something?
Doc Brown: No, no, no, no, no, Marty. Both you and Jennifer turn out fine. It's your kids, Marty. Something's gotta be done about your kids!

Jennifer: Okay, come on, I think we're safe.
Marty: You know, this time it wasn't my fault. The Doc said all his clocks were twenty-five minutes slow -
Mr. Strickland: "Doc"!? Am I to understand you're still hanging around with Dr. Emmett Brown, McFly? [clicks with his mouth, gives Jennifer a tardy slip] Tardy slip for you, Miss Parker. [gives Marty one, too] And one for you, McFly. I believe that makes four in a row. Now let me give you a nickel's worth of free advice, young man. This so-called Dr. Brown is dangerous, he's a real nut case. You hang around with him, you're gonna end up in big trouble.
Marty: [smart-alecky] Oh, yes, sir.
Mr. Strickland: [pushes Marty a little bit] You got a real attitude problem, McFly. You're a slacker! You remind me of you father when he went here. He was a slacker too.
Marty: Can I go now, Mr. Strickland?
Mr. Strickland: I noticed your band is on the roster for the dance auditions after school today. Why even bother, McFly? You don't have a chance, you're too much like your old man. No McFly ever amounted to anything in the history of Hill Valley!
Marty: Yeah, well, history is gonna change.

Linda: Hey, Marty. I'm not your answering service. While you were outside pouting about the car; Jennifer Parker called you twice.
Lorraine: I don't like her, Marty. Any girl who just calls up a boy is just asking for trouble.
Linda: Oh, Mom, there's nothing wrong with calling a boy.
Lorraine: I think it's terrible! Girls chasing boys. When I was your age I never chased a boy or called a boy or sat in a parked car with a boy.
Linda: Then how am I supposed to ever meet anybody?
Lorraine: Well, it will just happen, like the way I met your father.
Linda: That was so stupid! Grandpa hit him with the car.
Lorraine: It was meant to be. Anyway, if grandpa hadn't hit him, then none of you would have been born.
Linda: Yeah, well, I still don't see what Dad was doing in the middle of the street.
Lorraine: What was it, George? Birdwatching?
George: What Lorraine? What?
Lorraine: Anyway, your grandfather hit him with the car and brought him into the house. He seemed so helpless, like a little lost puppy, and my heart just went out to him -
Linda: Yeah, Mom, we know! You told us the story a million times. You felt sorry for him so you decided to go with him to the Fish Under the Sea Dance.
Lorraine: No, No. It was the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance. Our first date. I'll never forget it. It was the night of that terrible thunderstorm, remember, George? Your father kissed me for the very first time on that dance floor and it was then that I realized that I was going to spend the rest of my life with him.

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.

Male Student: (speaks to George during the dance) Hey George, heard you laid out Biff, nice going!
Female Student: George, have you ever thought of running for class president?
