Quotes from the Movie Back to the Future

Great Scott!

Doc Brown

The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?

Doc Brown

Good evening. I'm Doctor Emmett Brown and I'm standing here in the parking lot at Twin Pines Mall. It is Saturday morning, October 26, 1985, 1:18 A.M. and this is temporal experiment number one. Please note that Einstein's clock is in precise synchronization with my control watch.

Doc Brown

If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour, you're gonna see some serious shit.

Doc Brown

Ha! What did I tell you?! EIGHTY-EIGHT MILES PER HOUR!!! The temporal displacement occured exactly 1:20 AM and zero seconds!

Doc Brown

Einstein's clock is exactly one minute behind mine and still ticking!

Doc Brown

First, you turn the time circuits on. This one tells you where your going. This one tells you where you are. This one tells you where you were. You input your destination time on this keypad. Say you want to see the signing of the Declaration of Indepenence or wittness the birth of Christ .Here's a red-letter date in the history of science: November 5, 1955. Of course, November 5, 1955! That was the day I invented time-travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revalation! A vision! A picture in my head! A picture of this! This is what makes time travel possible: the flux capacitor! It's taken me nearly thirty years and my entire family fortune to realize the vision of that day. My God, has it been that long? Things have certainly changed around here. I remember when this was all farmland as far as the eye could see! Old man Peabody owned all of this! He had this crazy idea about breeding pine trees.

Doc Brown

Oh my god... they found me. I don't know how, but they found me. RUN FOR IT MARTY!

Doc Brown

My God. Do you know what this means? It means that this damn thing doesn't work at all!

Doc Brown

My God. Do you know what this means? It means that this damn thing doesn't work at all!

Doc Brown

1.21 GIGAWATTS!!!

Doc Brown

I'm sure that in 1985, plutonium is sold in every corner drug store, but here in 1955 it's a little hard to come by. Marty, I'm sorry, but I'm afriad you're stuck here!

Doc Brown

This is it! This is the answer! It says here that a bolt of lightning is going to strike the clock tower at precisely 10:04 PM next Saturday Night! If we could somehow... harness this lightning; channel it into the Flux Capacitor, it just might work. Next Saturday night, we're sending you back to the future!

Doc Brown

Look! There's a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up!

Doc Brown

Please excuse the crudity of this model as I didn't have time to build it to scale or paint it.

Doc Brown
