Watch it now
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.

Radio:
October is inventory time. So right now, Statler Toyota is making

the best deals of the year on all 1985 model Toyotas. You won't find a

better car with a better price with better service anywhere in Hill

Valley...

Television:
The Senate is expected to vote on this today. In other news,

officials at The Pacific

Nuclear Research Facility have denied the rumor that the case of missing

plutonium was in fact stolen from their vault two weeks ago. A Libyan

terrorist group had claimed responsibility for the alleged theft,

however, the officials now infer the crepency to a simple clerical

error. The

FBI...

Marty:
Hey, Doc? Doc. Hello, anybody home? Einstein, come here, boy.

What's going on?

Wha- aw, god. Aw, Jesus. Whoa, rock and roll. Yo

Doc:
Marty, is that you?

Marty:
Hey, hey, Doc, where are you?

Doc:
Thank god I found you. Listen, can you meet me at Twin Pines Mall

tonight at 1:
15? I've made a major breakthrough, I'll need your

assistance.

Marty:
Wait a minute, wait a minute. 1:15 in the morning?

Doc:
Yeah.

Marty:
What's going on? Where have you been all week?

Doc:
Working.

Marty:
Where's Einstein, is he with you?

Doc:
Yeah, he's right here.

Marty:
You know, Doc, you left your equipment on all week.

Doc:
My equipment, that reminds me, Marty, you better not hook up to the

amplifier. There's a slight possibility for overload.

Marty:
Yeah, I'll keep that in mind.

Doc:
Good, I'll see you tonight. Don't forget, now, 1:15 a.m., Twin

Pines Mall.

Marty:
Right.

Doc:
Are those my clocks I hear?

Marty:
Yeah, it's 8:00.

Doc:
They're late. My experiment worked. They're all exactly twenty-five

minutes slow.

Marty:
Wait a minute. Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me that it's

8:
25?

Doc:
Precisely.

Marty:
Damn. I'm late for school.

Marty:
Hello, Jennifer.

Jennifer:
Marty, don't go this way. Strickland's looking for you. If

you're caught it'll be four tardies in a row.

Jennifer:
Alright, c'mon, I think we're safe.

Marty:
Y'know this time it wasn't my fault. The Doc set all of his

clocks twenty-five minutes slow.

Strickland:
Doc? Am I to understand you're still hanging around with

Doctor Emmett Brown, McFly? Tardy slip for you, Miss Parker. And one for

you McFly I believe that makes four in a row. Now let me give you a

nickle's worth of advice, young man. This so called Doctor Brown is

dangerous, he's a real nuttcase. You hang around with him you're gonna

end up in big trouble.

Marty:
Oh yes sir.

Strickland:
You got a real attitude problem, McFly. You're a slacker.

You remind me of you father when he went her, he was a slacker too.

Marty:
Can I go now, Mr. Strickland?

Strickland:
I noticed you band is on the roster for dance auditions

after school today. Why even bother Mcfly, you haven't got a chance,

you're too much like your own man. No McFly ever amounted to anything in

the history of Hill Valley.

Marty:
Yeah, well history is gonna change.

Audition Judge:
Next, please.

Marty:
Alright, we're the pinheads.

Audition Judge:
Okay, that's enough. Now stop the microphone. I'm sorry

fellas. I'm afraid you're just too darn loud. Next, please. Where's the

next group, please.

Election Van:
Re-elect Mayor Goldie Wilson. Progress is his middle name.

Marty:
I'm too loud. I can't believe it. I'm never gonna get a chance to

play in front of anybody.

Jennifer:
Marty, one rejection isn't the end of the world.

Marty:
Nah, I just don't think I'm cut out for music.
