  1. Marty McFly: Ah, yeah… Give me a Tab.
    Lou: Tab? I can’t give you a tab unless you order something.
    Marty McFly: All right, give me a Pepsi Free.
    Lou: You want a Pepsi, PAL, you’re gonna pay for it.

    Stella Baines: He’s a very strange young man.
    Sam Baines: He’s an idiot. Comes from upbringing. His parents are probably idiots too. Lorraine, if you ever have a kid that acts that way I’ll disown you.

    Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc, are you trying to tell me that my mother has got the hots for me?
    Dr. Emmett Brown: Precisely.
    Marty McFly: Whoa, this is heavy.
    Dr. Emmett Brown: 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: I’m sure in 1985 plutonium is available at every corner drugstore, but in 1955 it’s a little hard to come by.

    Dr. Emmett Brown: Now, remember – according to my theory, you interfered with your parents first meeting. If they don’t meet, they won’t fall in love, they won’t get married and they won’t have kids. That’s why your older brother’s disappearing from that photograph. Your sister will follow, and unless you repair the damage, you’ll be next.
    Marty McFly: Sounds pretty heavy.
    Dr. Emmett Brown: Weight has nothing to do with it.

    Marty McFly: Do you know where Riverside Drive is?
    Sam Baines: It’s on the other end of town, a block past Maple. East end of town.

    Sam Baines: Who the hell is John F. Kennedy?

    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: That’s Strickland? Jesus. Didn’t that guy ever have hair?

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

    Lorraine Baines: Our first television set. Dad just bought it today. Do you have a television set?
    Marty McFly: Well, yeah! You know we have… two of them.
    Milton Baines: Wow! You must be rich!
    Stella Baines: Oh, honey, he’s teasing you. Nobody has two television sets.

    Dr. Emmett Brown: Let me show you my plan for sending you home. Please excuse the crudity of this model, I didn’t have time to build it to scale or to paint it.

    Marty McFly: [impressed] It’s good.

  2. The musical judge at Hill Valley High School who tells Marty and his band that they are just too darn loud is Huey Lewis. The song that Marty and his band were playing? The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and The News.

    Other factoids about Back To The Future courtesty of IMDb.com:

    Michael J. Fox had always been the first choice for Marty, but he was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts with his work on “Family Ties” (1982). Eric Stoltz was cast as Marty but he disagreed with the rest of the cast and crew about the tone of the film. After a few weeks of filming, Fox was asked to replace Stoltz. Fox worked out a schedule to fulfill his commitment to both projects. Every day during production, he drove straight to the movie set after taping of the show was finished every day and averaged about one or two hours of sleep. The bulk of the production was filmed from 6pm to 6am, with the daylight scenes filmed on weekends.

    Michael J. Fox had to learn to skateboard for the film.

    The mall where Marty McFly meets Doc Brown for their time travel experiment is called “Twin Pines Mall”. Doc Brown comments that old farmer Peabody used to own all of the land, and he grew pines there. When Marty goes back in time, he runs over and knocks down a pine tree on the Peabody’s property. When he comes back to the mall at the end of the film, the sign at the mall identifies the mall as “Lone Pine Mall”.

    When Doc Brown first sends Einstein “one minute” into the future, the time elapsed between when the DeLorean disappears and reappears is actually 1 minute 21 seconds, just as the reappearance occurred at 1:21am, and the flux capacitor required 1.21 jigowatts of electricity.

    Character name of Emmett comes from the word “time,” spelled backwards and pronounced as syllables (em-it).

    In the French version, when Marty wakes up in 1955 in his young mother’s bed, she calls him Pierre Cardin instead of Calvin Klein. In the Italian version, she calls him Levi Strauss.

    John Lithgow and Jeff Goldblum were considered for the role of Doc Brown.

    When Marty pretends to be Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan, he plays a tape labeled “Van Halen” to scare George out of his sleep. It is an untitled Edward Van Halen original written for a movie called The Wild Life (1984) which featured Lea Thompson.

    Playing at the Hill Valley cinema is Cattle Queen of Montana (1954) starring Barbara Stanwyck and Ronald Reagan; the latter of course was the President of the United States in 1985, the year the film was made.
