Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: What's your name, dude?
Marty McFly: Uh, Mar-, uh... Eastwood. Clint Eastwood.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: What kind of stupid name is that?

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.

Marty McFly: Great Scott!
Doc: I know, this is heavy.

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

Young Doc

Buford's Gang Member #2: Hey, get a gander at them moccasins! What kinda skins is them? What's that writing mean?
Buford's Gang Member #1: "Nee-kay"? What is that, some kinda Injun talk or something?

Bartender: In about ten minutes, he's gonna be as sober as a priest on Sunday.
Marty McFly: Ten minutes? Why do we have to cut these things so damn close?

Marty McFly: You're Mad Dog Tannen!
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Mad Dog? I hate that name. I hate it. You hear? 'Cause nobody calls me "Mad Dog", especially not some duded-up, egg-sucking gutter trash.

Young Doc: No wonder this circuit failed. It says "Made in Japan".
Marty McFly: What do you mean, Doc? All the best stuff is made in Japan.
Young Doc: Unbelievable.

Marty McFly: Hey, Doc! Where you going now? Back to the future?
Doc: Nope. Already been there.

Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Then let's settle it, right now!
Buford's Gang Member #1: Uh, not now, Buford. Marshal's got our guns.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Like I said, we'll finish this tomorrow.
Buford's Gang Member #2: Tomorrow, we're robbing the Pine City Stage.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: What about Monday? Are we doing anything Monday?
Buford's Gang Member #1: Uh, no, Monday would be fine. You can kill him on Monday.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: I'll be back this way on Monday! We'll settle this then... right there... out in the street... in front of the Palace Saloon!
Marty McFly: Yeah, like when? High noon?
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: Noon? I do my killin' before breakfast! Seven o'clock!
Marty McFly: Eight o'clock. I do my killing after breakfast!

Marty, we all have to make decisions that affect the course of our lives. You've got to do what you've got to do. And I've got to do what I've got to do.


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.
