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

Goldie Wilson

Stella Baines: Marty, you look so familiar to me. Do I know your mother?
Marty McFly: Yeah, I think maybe you do...


Goldie Wilson: No, sir! I'm gonna make something of myself. I'm going to night school. And one day I'm gonna be somebody!
Marty McFly: That's right, he's gonna be mayor!
Goldie Wilson: Yeah, I'm gonna... Mayor! Now that's a good idea! I can run for mayor.
Lou: A colored mayor, that'll be the day.
Goldie Wilson: You wait and see, Mr. Carruthers. I will be mayor! I'll be the most powerful man in Hill Valley. I'm gonna clean up this town.
Lou: Good. You can start by sweeping the floor.

Marty McFly: You know, Doc, you left your equipment on all week.
Dr. Emmett Brown: My equipment. That reminds me, Marty. You better not hook up to the amplifier. There's a slight possibility of overload.
Marty McFly: Yeah, I'll keep that in mind.

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

Marty McFly

George McFly: Do you really think I oughta swear?
Marty McFly: Yes, definitely. Goddamn it George, swear.

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.

Dr. Emmett Brown: 1.21 jigawatts? 1.21 jigawatts! Great Scott!
Marty McFly: [following] What the hell is a jigawatt?

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

Biff Tannen: And uh, where's my reports?
George McFly: Uh, well, I haven't finished those up yet, but you know I... I figured since they weren't due till...
Biff Tannen: Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Huh? Think, McFly. Think! I gotta have time to get 'em retyped. Do you realize what would happen if I hand in my reports in your handwriting? I'll get fired. You wouldn't want that to happen, would ya? Would ya?
George McFly: Of course not, Biff. I wouldn't want that to happen. Now, look. I'll finish those reports on up tonight and I'll run 'em on over first thing tomorrow. All right?

I have your car towed all the way to your house and all you've got for me is *lite* beer?
