Marty McFly

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

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.

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.

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: 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!

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.
