Back to the Future script
Synopsis: In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the '50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he'll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.

Marty:
Here you go, lady. There's a quarter.

Woman:
Thank you, don't forget to take a flyer.

Marty:
Right.

Woman:
Save the clock tower.

Marty:
Where were we.

Jennifer:
Right about here.

Jennifer's Dad: Jennifer.

Jennifer:
It's my dad.

Marty:
Right.

Jennifer:
I've gotta go.

Marty:
I'll call you tonight.

Jennifer:
I'll be at my grandma's. Here, let me give you the number.

Bye.

Marty:
Perfect, just perfect.

Biff:
I can't believe you loaned me a car, without telling me it had a

blindspot. I could've been

killed.

George:
Now, now, Biff, now, I never noticed any blindspot before when I

would drive it. Hi,

son.

Biff:
But, what are you blind McFly, it's there. How else do you explain

that wreck out there?

George:
Now, Biff, um, can I assume that your insurance is gonna pay for

the damage?

Biff:
My insurance, it's your car, your insurance should pay for it.

Hey, I wanna know who's

gonna pay for this? I spilled beer all over it when that car smashed

into me. Who's gonna pay

my cleaning bill?

George:
Uh?

Biff:
And where's my reports?

George:
Uh, well, I haven't finished those up yet, but you know I

figured since they weren't due

till-

Biff:
Hello, hello, anybody home? Think, McFly, think. I gotta have time

to get them re-typed.

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 you? Would you?

George:
Of course not, Biff, now I wouldn't want that to happen. Now,

uh, I'll finish those

reports up tonight, and I'll run em them on over first thing tomorrow,

alright?

Biff:
Hey, not too early I sleep in on Saturday. Oh, McFly, your shoe's

untied. Don't be so
