Marty McFly Quotes
Lorraine Baines: Our first television set. Dad just picked it up today. Do you have a television?
Marty McFly: 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.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Let me show you my plan for sending you home. Please excuse the crudity of this model, I didn't have time to build it to scale or to paint it.

Dr. Emmett Brown: Hey, kid! You'd better pick up your mom and get going.
Marty McFly: Yeah... right.
Dr. Emmett Brown: You look a little pale, are you okay?
Marty McFly: Yeah... I dunno, Doc. I mean, it's just this whole thing with my mother.
Dr. Emmett Brown: What? What? What? What? What?
Marty McFly: I just don't know if I can go through with it... hitting on her.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Nobody said anything about hitting her! You've just got to take a few liberties with her.
Marty McFly: See! That's what I mean - I mean, god! I c-can't believe I'm actually gonna feel up my own mother. You know this is the sort of thing that could screw me up permanently. Well what if I go back to the future and I end up being...

Dr. Emmett Brown: Why shouldn't you be happy?
[Marty places headphones over his father's ears and wakes him up by playing Van Halen music at full blast. George wakes up screaming - Marty pauses the music. George looks up to see Marty, who is unrecognizable because he is wearing a radiation suit]
George McFly: Who are you?
Marty McFly: [after giving him another earful of loud rock music] Silence Earthling! My name is Darth Vader. I am an extraterrestrial from the planet Vulcan!
[makes Live Long and Prosper sign with his hand]
Lorraine Baines: Will we ever see you again?
Marty McFly: I guarantee it.
Time circuits on. Flux Capacitor... fluxxing. Engine running. All right!
[the engine stops suddenly]
[heads for a door then stops] Oh... one other thing. If you guys ever have kids and one of them when he's eight years old accidentally sets fire to the living room rug... go easy on him.
Dr. Emmett Brown: You've gotta get your father and mother to interact in some sort of social...
Marty McFly: Wh-what? You mean like a date?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Right.
Marty McFly: Well, what kind of date? I don't know. What do kids do in the '50s?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Well, they're your parents you must know them. What are their common interests? What do they like to do together?
Marty McFly: Nothing.
[Marty wakes up in Lorraine's bed]
Marty McFly: Mom... is that you?
Lorraine Baines: There, there now. Just relax.
[pats a damp cloth on Marty's forehead]
Lorraine Baines: You've been asleep for almost nine hours now.
Marty McFly: I had a horrible nightmare. I dreamed that I went... back in time. It was terrible.

[seeing a poster for the Enchantment Under the Sea dance]
Dr. Emmett Brown: Look. There's a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up.
Marty McFly: Of course! The Enchantment Under the Sea dance! They're supposed to go to this. That's where they kiss for the first time.
Dr. Emmett Brown: All right, kid. You stick to your father like glue and make sure he takes her to that dance.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Marty, I'm sorry. But the only power source capable of generating 1.21 gigawatts of electricity is a bolt of lightning.
Marty McFly: [startled] What did you say?
Dr. Emmett Brown: A bolt of lighting. Unfortunately, you never know when or where it's ever gonna strike.
Marty McFly: We do now.
[hands Doc the "Save the Clock Tower" flyer]
Marty McFly: [acting cool] Do you mind if we... park... for a while?
Lorraine Baines: That's a great idea. I'd love to park.
Marty McFly: Huh?
Lorraine Baines: Marty, I'm almost 18 years old. It's not like I've never parked before.
Marty McFly: What?
Lorraine Baines: Marty, you seem so nervous. Is something wrong?
Marty McFly: [trying to maintain composure] No... No.
[Lorraine takes a sip from a liquor bottle]
Marty McFly: [grabbing the bottle from Lorraine] Lorraine, Lorraine, What are you doin'?
Lorraine Baines: [starting to laugh] I swiped it from the old lady's liquor cabinet.
Marty McFly: Yeah, well, you shouldn't drink.
Lorraine Baines: Why not?
Marty McFly: Because you - you might regret it later in life.
Lorraine Baines: Marty, don't be such a square. Everybody who's anybody drinks.
[Marty takes a sip from Lorraine's bottle then spit-takes as he notices Lorraine lighting a cigarette]
Marty McFly: [nauseatingly] Geez! You smoke too?
Lorraine Baines: Marty, you're beginning to sound just like my mother!
