View Quote 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)
View Quote Marty: Uh, this is heavy duty, Doc. This is great. Uh, does it run like on, on regular, unleaded gasoline?
Doc Brown: Unfortunately, no. It requires something with a little more kick; Plutonium!
Marty: Uh, Plutonium... Wait a minute, are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?!
Doc Brown: Hey! Hey, hey, keep rolling, keep rolling there! No, no, no, no, no. This sucker's electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need.
Marty: Doc, you don't just walk into a store and buy plutonium! Did you rip that off?
Doc Brown: [waving arms] Of course! From a group of Libyan nationalists. They wanted me to build them a bomb, so I took their plutonium and in turn gave them a shoddy bomb casing full of used pinball machine parts!
View Quote Peabody's wife: [Upon seeing the DeLorean] Lord, what is it, what is it, Paw?

View Quote 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!

Sam Baines: Who the hell is John F. Kennedy?
Lorraine: Mother, with Marty's parents out of town, don't you think he oughta spend the night? I mean, after all, Dad almost killed him with the car.
Stella Banes: That's true, Marty. I think that maybe you should spend the night. I think you're our responsibilty.
Marty: Ah, jeez, I don't know...
Lorraine: And he can sleep in my room. [squeezes Marty's knee]

Doc Brown: What am I wearing?

View Quote Marty: Sounds pretty heavy.
Doc Brown: Weight has nothing to do with it.
View Quote Marty: This is heavy, Doc.
