If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious shit.
Dr. Emmett Brown

Great Scott!
– Dr. Emmett Brown

Hey, Doc, we better back up. We don’t have enough road to get up to 88.
Marty McFly
Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.
Dr. Emmett Brown

Whoa. Wait a minute, Doc. Are you trying to tell me that my mother has got the hots for me?
Marty McFly
Precisely.
Dr. Emmett Brown
Whoa. This is heavy.
Marty McFly
There’s that word again. “Heavy.” Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?
Dr. Emmett Brown

Wait a minute. Wait a minute, Doc. Ah… Are you telling me that you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?
Marty McFly
The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some *style?*
Dr. Emmett Brown

Calvin? Wh… Why do you keep calling me Calvin?
Marty McFly
Well, that is your name, isn’t it? Calvin Klein? It’s written all over your underwear.
Lorraine Baines

Jesus, George, it was a wonder I was even born.
– Marty McFly

[to Uncle Joey as a baby, playing in his playpen] So you’re my Uncle Joey. Better get used to these bars, kid.
– Marty McFly

[Marty is showing Doc Brown the flux capacitor in the DeLorean time vehicle] It works! It works!
Dr. Emmett Brown
[grabs Marty]
I finally invent something that works!
Dr. Emmett Brown
[quietly] You bet your ass it works.
Marty McFly

Which one’s your pop?
Dr. Emmett Brown
[points him out] That’s him.
Marty McFly
[they see him getting kicked around by other school bullies]
[has a “kick me” sign on his back] Okay. Okay, you guys. Ah-ha-ha-ha. Very funny. You guys are being real mature.
George McFly
Maybe you were adopted.
Dr. Emmett Brown

I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet. But your kids are gonna love it.
– Marty McFly
