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

Dr. Emmett Brown

Dr. Emmett Brown: 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 can 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!

I'm sure in 1985 plutonium is available at every corner drugstore, but in 1955, it's a little hard to come by.

Dr. Emmett Brown

George McFly: I know what you're gonna say, son. And you're right, you're right. But uh... Biff just happens to be my supervisor, and I'm afraid I'm just no good at... confrontations.
Marty McFly: The car, Dad. I mean he wrecked it. He totaled it. I needed that car tomorrow night, Dad. Do you have any idea how important this is to me? Do you have any clue?

[introducing his band] All right. We're the, uh... we're the Pinheads.

Marty McFly

Dr. Emmett Brown: Oh, my God, they found me, I don't know how, but they found me. Run for it Marty!
Marty McFly: Who? Who?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Who do you think? The Libyans.
Marty McFly: Holy shit!

Marty McFly: Ah, Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ, Doc, you just disintegrated Einstein!
Dr. Emmett Brown: Calm down, Marty, I didn't disintegrate anything. The molecular structure of both Einstein and the car are completely intact.
Marty McFly: Then where the hell are they?
Dr. Emmett Brown: The appropriate question is, "WHEN is 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 am and zero seconds, we shall catch up with him and the time machine.

Wait, you don't understand. If you don't play there's no music. If there's no music they don't dance. If they don't dance they don't kiss and fall in love and I'm history.

Marty McFly

Dr. Emmett Brown: Which one's your pop?
Marty McFly: [points him out getting beat up] That's him.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Maybe you were adopted.

Things have certainly changed around here. I remember when this was all farmland as far the eye could see. Old man Peabody owned all of this. He had this crazy idea about breeding pine trees.

Dr. Emmett Brown

That's Strickland? Jesus. Didn't that guy ever have hair?

Marty McFly

Marty McFly: Calvin? Wh... Why do you keep calling me Calvin?
Lorraine Baines: Well, that is your name, isn't it? Calvin Klein? It's written all over your underwear.
