* ''Continuum Conundrum'' gives Jennifer Parker her largest role yet in a ''BTTF'' story, due to her and Marty being the only residents of 1986 Hill Valley to have traveled through time. She even gets to drive the [=DeLorean=] a few times, [[spoiler:first to run Needles off the road, and again to pick up Marty ''from 2035''.]]

* Real-Life Example: The then-CEO of Universal, Sid Sheinberg, wanted to change the name to "Spaceman from Pluto" due to the comic book that the kids on the farm are reading when Marty first makes it to 1955, thinking that no one would get the title ''Back to the Future'' (it doesn't take a genius to figure out the FridgeLogic there). The writers were stuck and really couldn't say anything, but Creator/StevenSpielberg on the other hand said this at a meeting: "We got the joke you sent us, it was hilarious." The uproarious laughter pretty much squashed the idea.
* Real-Life Example: From a storytelling standpoint, the massive amount of {{Foreshadowing}} the writers managed to pack into the opening story -- without disrupting the flow -- is impressive. Lorraine's storytelling, Doc's rambling, the words of the lady from the Hill Valley Preservation Society... all come into play later in the film.

* Doc's justification for using the [=DeLorean=] as the vessel for his time machine is simple: "The way I see it, if you're gonna build a car into a time machine, why not do it with some [[RuleOfCool style]]?"

* A small moment, but Marvin and the Starlighters sending Biff's gang running is pretty awesome. Match, Skinhead, and 3-D throw Marty in the trunk of Lorenzo's car, and when Lorenzo objects, they dismiss him as a "spook"... which causes all five Starlighers to exit the car, danger in Marvin's voice as he asks, [[OhCrap "Who are you calling 'spook', peckerwood?"]] The bullies panic and flee as Lorenzo snarls, "Go home to your mama, boy!" while taking a swipe at them as three Starlighters run after them.

* Back in 1955, the colored janitor tries to encourage George [=McFly=] to stand up for himself, using himself as an example. He may be a colored busboy, but that's not all he'll be. Marty looks at him, and after a moment of being stunned (again) exclaims, "That's right, he's gonna be mayor!" Hilarious and awesome because the busboy really is going to become mayor in 30 years time. And the best part, the movie implies a stable time loop, it was Marty's witnessing this exchange that prompts him to go into politics. He was already on his way to doing something other than working in a cafe; as he tells George, he's "going to nightschool" and one day he'll "be somebody". Marty simply speeds up the process.

[[folder:Telltale Games]]
* Marty defeating Kid Tannen, a MOBSTER, in the past. Not only with getting him on Tax evasion via Trixie (Kid Tannen's girlfriend [[spoiler: and his grandma, Sylvia]]) and Officer Parker (in reality, Jennifer's grandpa), but was also able to save Edna from him and used the gun-lighter he stole from Alternate!Biff, resulting in the loss of the alcohol in Kid's organization and likely his entire enterprise. Lets remember that this is a teenager who did all this.
** Emmet helps out too, as it was his rocket car that was able to keep him from geting away thanks to the fact that it was kinda busted.
* In Episode 3, the moment Citizen Brown [[spoiler: realizes that the logo for the "new" Hill Valley is modeled after ''the flux capacitor''.]]
* In Episode 4, Marty is inspired to try and unbrainwash Jennifer by playing his guitar over the squawkbox, when a guard comes to escort her out and notices the music. When the guard inspects the camera, Jennifer beans him with her box of spray paints.
-->'''Jennifer:''' Nobody scrambles my brains, ya hear me?! No one! I'm Jennifer Parker - rock 'n roller!
* Marty rescuing Doc in Episode 4 also qualifies.
* Telltale got Michael J. Fox to voice a character for the finale. In fact, he voices [[spoiler:FOUR characters: Old Willie McFly, Artie's dad, and three older Alt!Martys!]]
* A slightly fridgey one in Episode 5. [[spoiler:Citizen Brown is disguised as the runner of the Enlightenment Under The Sea attraction, and has his younger self kidnapped and hidden in the bathysphere. Marty knows this, and is trying to thwart him. He tries to get onto the ride with a ticket, then invokes the authorities when Brown rejects it. After all that, Brown pretends the gears are jammed so he can't raise the bathysphere. So what does Marty do? He ''deliberately crimps the bathysphere's air hose'', cutting off young Emmett's air supply and putting his life-- and by extension his older self's life-- in jeopardy. He does this knowing full well that if Emmett dies, not only will he lose a lifelong friend, but he'll prevent the invention of the time machine in the first place (because its inventor won't be alive to invent it) and be forever stranded 55 years in the past. He's taking a '''MASSIVE''' chance, and he takes it without hesitation. Badass to say the very least. He probably realized that the only one who cares about Emmett more than he does is Emmett himself. A difficult, but logically sound, decision.]]
* When Young Emmett is showcasing his Electrokinetic Levitator at the expo, he rolls off the ramp, supposedly falling to the "spectacular failure" he mentioned in Episode 1... [[spoiler:until he flies back into the shot, soaring majestically around the room.]] Made even more awesome by the accompanying [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic triumphant version of the Back To The Future theme.]]
* Episode 5: William [=McFly=] saving Marty and Doc from a trigger-happy Edna.
** There is also the scene where Marty makes a trap to knock out the Western Tannen and a time-traveling Edna so that they can save Hill Valley from a future where it got burned to the ground.
