"Shot in the back by Buford Tannen, over a matter of 80 dollars." What kind of future do you call that?

Young Doc

Marty, you can't go losing your judgment every time someone calls you a name. It's exactly what causes you to get into that accident in the future.


Marty McFly: I'm sorry, Doc. It's all my fault you're stuck back there. I never should have let Biff get to me!
Young Doc: Well, there are plenty worse places to be than the Old West. I could've ended up in the Dark Ages. They probably would have burned me at the stake as a heretic or something.

Jennifer Parker: Dr. Brown, I brought this note back from the future and now it's erased.
Doc: Of course it's erased.
Jennifer Parker: But what does that mean?
Doc: It means your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you.
Marty McFly: We will, Doc.

Buford's Gang Member #1: Uh, it means that you win without a fight.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Without shooting? He can't do that.

Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: I think you're nothing but a gutless yellow turd! And I'm giving you to the count of ten to come out here, and prove I'm wrong! One...
Marty McFly: Doc... Sober up, buddy. Let's get sober.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Two...
Saloon Old Timer #3: You gotta get out there, son. I got $20 gold bet on you, so don't let me down.

Saloon Old-Timer #2: I got $30 gold bet again' you, so don't let me down.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Four...
