** 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.

* KidFromTheFuture: Marty, although his parents know nothing of who he really is. Lorraine is enamoured with him due to his cavalier attitude (and the "Florence Nightingale effect") and George initially thinks he's a pushy pest who keeps following him around.

* ScaryBlackMan: "Who you callin' "spook", peckerwood?!" Biff's gang seems more afraid of the copious amount of pot smoke billowing out of the Starliters' car than anything else: "I don't wanna mess with no reefer addicts!"

* ForWantOfANail: While most nails are avoided (this time) it's amazing what one moment of bravery and a single punch to a bully's face can do...

* DamselInDistress: Invoked and then played straight -- Marty's plan is to stage an AttemptedRape of Lorraine ([[{{Squick}} his own mother]]) so that George can intervene and win Lorraine's affections. However, when Biff interrupts the staged attempted rape and tries to actually rape Lorraine, it's up to George to save the day, which he does, achieving the desired result.

* CloseEnoughTimeline: The understood alternate 1985 where George is no longer a meek office drone inured to Evil Cube Farm Boss Biff's abuses, but a confident, acclaimed sci-fi author thanks to Marty's confidence-building efforts in the past. When Marty briefs Doc of the spectacular success at the dance to Doc, his reaction indicates that Doc suspects this will be happening.
