** The ending scene of ''Part I'' is also the opening scene of ''Part II''. Since Elisabeth Shue had replaced Claudia Wells as Jennifer, the scene was refilmed for the sequel. The re-shot version is nearly identical, with the only difference being that Doc Brown's face is shown this time, he gives a significant ''look'' with his eyes, and [[HesitationEqualsDishonesty hesitates slightly]] before responding to Marty asking whether he and Jennifer end up as "assholes". You'll notice that [[TheyJustDidntCare they didn't even bother to match Shue's hairstyle with Wells']]. Sure, most people didn't notice at first because of the four-year lag in RealLife, caused by Robert Zemeckis being off shooting ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', but if you watch the two films back to back it can be pretty jarring.

** Possibly justified: when Marty meets Uncle Joey as an infant, he's told that Joey loves being in the playpen and cries if let out. Apparently he ''likes'' being kept behind bars. Given that, it's likely he's sabotaging his own [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parole parole]], consciously or otherwise, because he wants to stay in jail.

* RippleEffectProofMemory: Traveling through time in the DeLorean seems to shield Doc and Marty from changes in the timeline (even when not currently in the thing when an alteration occurs) for the most part, but not quite enough against things that would cause them to cease to exist entirely.

** Although Doc's letter at the end of Part 2 sort of plays this trope straight (the only part of the Trilogy to do so), though RuleOfCool applies for obvious reasons. This is debatable however, as since the letter arrives after the DeLorean gets struck by lightning, it could be argued that the Western Union guy wasn't there at all until the ripple effect kicked in.

* SayMyName: Doc and Marty do tons of this throughout the movies. And regardless of the decade, or even the century, Marty will be addressed by a Tannen with "'''''[[HeyYou Hey, McFly!!]]'''''"

* TwoPartTrilogy: Although the first movie ends on a definite SequelHook, it can be clearly be enjoyed by itself. The second, however, ends on a clear CliffHanger that obviously requires a third movie in order to be resolved. Marty's "chicken" problem was also added for the sequels, as well as nemesis Douglas "[[RedHotChiliPeppers Flea]]" Needles. Justified in that the second and third part were originally intended to be a single movie. And even after the split, they were still filmed back-to-back.

* EstablishingCharacterMusic: The first time we see Marty [=McFly=], he walks into Doc Brown's laboratory, plugs in his guitar, and begins shredding. This quickly establishes him as a laid back, average teenager.
