* UnspokenPlanGuarantee: Zigzagged in all three movies. In the climax of all three films, Doc creates an elaborate plan to get Marty and/or himself out of whatever time travel trouble they find themselves in, which the audience is [[MrExposition told in great detail by Doc]]. In all three films, something goes wrong, but the plan ultimately works out.
** In the first film, Doc's plan to use the clock tower's lightning bolt is almost undone when the cable is broken apart by a tree branch falling on it, as well as the engine to the time machine dying. Marty manages to get the car restarted, and 1955 Doc just barely gets the cables reconnected just as the lightning bolt strikes. Turns out 1955 Doc's timing was off, anyways.
** The second film plays with this more. The plan boils down to "don't interfere in 1955 events until we can avoid a TimeParadox," and that plan works as stated. It just takes a lot longer with a lot more close calls than Marty and Doc would have liked.
** The final film spells out the plan to use a train to push the time machine up to 88 miles per hour, which almost fails when Clara nearly becomes a SpannerInTheWorks after coming back to give Doc an AnguishedDeclarationOfLove. Doc saves her from falling off the train, but misses out on climbing into the time machine, meaning Marty goes back to 1985 alone.

*** On October 22, 2015, ''USA Today'' reproduced the first version of the front page from ''Part II'' and wrapped it around the actual edition. The entire section "below the fold" is made up, as this was not visible in the movie; otherwise there were three changes: the price of the newspaper is the actual price (2 dollars) rather than 6 dollars as in the movie, and two references to "Queen Diana" were removed and replaced with other headlines, due to the RealLife death of Princess Diana in 1997 (not to mention the fact that Queen Elizabeth II was still the queen in 2015, as in both 1955 and 1985). The impossible headline "Cubs Sweep Series in 5" (a sweep would be four wins and no losses, which was what the Mets had just done to the Cubs the day before for the pennant), was retained, however.

*** Unlike his mother in the first two movies, Marty's ancestor Margret was startled when he shot out of bed.


Added DiffLines:

** Marty never gets to even take a sip at whatever drink he ordered. In the first movie, he was about to but noticed George left; Part II, he couldn't get the futuristic Pepsi bottle open; and Part III, the drink the bartender gave him appears to be smoking.

* ChekhovsBoomerang: The hover board, particularly the fact that its owner lets Marty keep it. After it's initial scene, it doesn't appear until later on when Marty needs to use it to get to the almanac from Biff. In the third film, the viewer is reminded a few times before Marty goes to 1885 that he still has it, and ends up using it so that Doc can save Clara.
