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.

arty McFly: Do you know where Riverside Drive is?
Sam Baines: It's on the other end of town, a block past Maple. East end of town.
Marty McFly: A block past Maple? That's John F. Kennedy Drive.

[chased by terrorists] Let's see if you bastards can do 90.

Marty McFly

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.

Marty McFly

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.

Jesus, George, it's a wonder I was ever born.

Marty McFly

Marty McFly: Lorraine, What are you doin'?
Lorraine Baines: 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 McFly Geez! You smoke too?
Lorraine Baines: Marty, you're beginning to sound just like my mother!

Marty McFly: Mom... is that you?
Lorraine Baines: There, there now. Just relax.

Dr. Emmett Brown: Have them go on some sort of social...
Marty McFly: You mean like a date?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Right.
Marty McFly: Well, what kind of date? 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 McFly: Whoa... they really cleaned this place up. Looks brand-new.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Now, remember - according to my theory, you interfered with your parents first meeting. If they don't meet, they won't fall in love, they won't get married and they won't have kids. That's why your older brother's disappearing from that photograph. Your sister will follow, and unless you repair the damage, you'll be next.
Marty McFly: Sounds pretty heavy.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Weight has nothing to do with it.

[stands tall with a hand over his heart] Mayor Goldie Wilson. Like the sound of that.
