** Marty's plan to force himself on Lorraine is a terrible one. Marty can't bring himself to abuse Lorraine for one and she is very eager to make out with him, so George couldn't have acted as a savior. It's only after Biff intervines and takes Marty's place when it becomes a DamsellInDistress scenario.

* BlatantLies: Lorraine says to Marty that she never went chasing after boys. When we see her younger self, it turns out that she is instantly enamored with George and, due to Marty taking his dad's place due to an accident, all but attempts to force herself on him. She even admits "It's not like I've never [[UnusualEuphemism parked]] before." She also tries to con her parents into letting Marty spend the night, and dreamily suggests that "he could sleep in my room" while squeezing his thigh. Wholesome 50's girl she ain't.

* EskimosArentReal: In 1985, Goldie Wilson is running for reelection as mayor of Hill Valley, in 1955 when Marty gives him the idea, his employer, the owner of the the cafe scoffs at the idea of a "colored mayor." According to the other [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} wiki]], there had been a number of African American mayors prior to the movie's timeline, though it should be noted that said mayors oversaw small rural frontier towns, and it wasn't until the 1960s' that an African American was elected mayor of a city.
