** In order to convince George to go out with Lorraine, Marty sneaks into his bedroom dressed in the radiation suit and claims to be "[[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]]", an extra-terrestrial from [[Franchise/StarTrek the planet Vulcan]], who will fry his brain (with Eddie Van Halen) if he doesn't ask her out.

The first film of the ''Back to the Future'' trilogy, and started the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' franchise.

Marty [=McFly=], a teenager from 1985, accidentally sends himself to 1955 in the time machine [[TheProfessor Doc Brown]] built out of a [=DeLorean=], and requires [[PlotCoupon 1.21 gigawatts of power]] to return home. After initial confusion, the 1955 Doc Brown agrees to help Marty get back home [[LightningCanDoAnything by striking his car with 1.21 Gigawatts of lightning]], giving Marty a week to [[GrandfatherParadox make his parents fall back in love at a dance]] and put bully Biff Tannen in his place. [[LateArrivalSpoiler He does it]], and in the process [[TemporalParadox invents rock 'n' roll and skateboarding]].

* AluminumChristmasTrees: In-universe. 50s Doc initially takes this approach towards a [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Reagan Presidency]], but comes around to it when he sees Marty's portable television studio (read: a camcorder), realizing that the President has to look good on TV.

* ContrivedCoincidence: Doc types in November 5, 1955 into the time machine, the day he came up with the Flux Capacitor. Marty ends up going back to that day, which also happens to be the exact same day his parents met.

** Doc Brown proves to Marty that the time machine works by syncronizing watches with a digital clock he attaches to his dog, then sending the dog one minute into the future. When the dog shows up again, his clock is a minute slower than Doc's.

* EasilyForgiven: While Biff in the altered timeline appears to have become a harmless, eager-to-please GentleGiant who is barely recognisable as the bully he used to be, both George and Lorraine seem to be remarkably grudge-free about him trying to rape Lorraine.
