Multiple Characters


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.


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.

Hey, McFly!

Marty: Wait, you don't understand. You gotta play. If there's no music they can't dance. If they can't dance they can't kiss, if they can't kiss, they can't fall in love and I'm history!
Marvin Berry: Look kid, the dance is over, unless you know somebody that can play the guitar.

Hello? Hello? Anybody home, huh, Think, McFly! Think! I gotta have time to get it retyped. Do you realize what what would happen if I handed in my reports in your handwriting? I'll get fired. You wouldn't want that to happen would ya? WOULD YA?!

George: [to Lorraine] I'm your density. [Pauses, checks note]...destiny.

Lorraine: "Marty". Such a nice name.

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

What are you looking at, Butthead?

Marty: Hey George. I've been looking all over for you. Remember that girl I introduced you to; Lorraine? What are you writing?
George: Uh, stories. Science fiction stories about visitors coming down to Earth from other planets.
Marty: Get out of town, I didn't know you did anything creative. Well, here let me read some -
George: Oh, no, no, no. I never, I never let anybody read my stories.
Marty: Why not?
George: Well, what if the didn't like them? What if they told me I was no good? I guess that might be hard for somebody to understand.
Marty: Uh, no. Not hard at all. So, anyway, George, about Lorraine. She really likes you. She told me to tell you that she wants you to ask her to the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance.
George: Really?
Marty: Oh, yeah! All you gotta do is go over there and ask her.
George: Whoa, like right here, right now in the cafeteria? What if she says "no?" I don't think I can take that kind of a rejection. Besides, I think she'd rather go with someone else.
Marty: Uh, who?
George: Biff.

(Struggling with a Pepsi bottle) God, how do you... (George McFly opens it with ease on a bottle opener)

Marty: [After being blown backwards by a large speaker] You know, Doc, you left your equipment on all week.
Doc Brown: My equipment? That reminds me Marty, you'd better not hook up to the amplifier. There's a slight possibility of overload.
Marty: Yeah... I'll keep that in mind.

George: Lou, gimme a milk, chocolate!

Marty: Sorry about your barn. (Old Man Peabody tries to shoot him)
Sherman Peabody: It's already mutated into human form, shoot it!
Old Man Peabody: Take that, you mutated son of a bitch!

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.
