** And he does. With Bill and Ted's help, of course.






* "Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure" is not thought of as being horrific. However, think for a moment about the historical figures they bring to our time. They had Abraham Lincoln and Joan of Arc with them. The latter was burned at the stake at the age of seventeen; and judging by the fact that in the movie she's already cut her hair, that time is fast approaching. Bill and Ted were giving a ''history report''. That means they must have known what was going to happen to her...''and they sent her back anyway''. And what about Abe Lincoln? It's not quite as bad as in Joan's case, since instead of being imprisoned for a year and then burned alive he was shot in the head and likely felt little to no pain. But still. A bit of warning might not have been amiss!
** Not to mention Socrates and his cup of hemlock.
*** According to tradition, Socrates had been given a choice. He could either be exiled from Athens forever or drink the poison. He chose the latter because that's how badass he was.
** However, you could say the same thing of any time-traveler (Series/DoctorWho included). Why they don't warp to ''Titanic'' and give that baby one big turn and avert collision, why they don't warn folks like Lincoln and Joan of Arc that if they do xyz, they're gonna die. Perhaps they know, subconsciously, that there are fixed moments in time; that no matter how badly you'd want to change them, they must happen.
* Well, besides the fact that Bill & Ted were not exactly, well, "history buffs", you could easily assume that they in fact did NOT know what was going to happen to Joan D'Arc after they sent her back. Not to mention all of these people had already been dead hundreds if not thousands of years before Bill or Ted were ever even born. There is also the whole thing about altering the known past causing the perfect peaceful future they were given a glimpse of to never will have occurred. (thats the future past-imperfect possiparticiple tense)

* Two curious cavemen are startled when the Phone Booth exits, leaving a blaze. It's implied these two discovered fire.
** Except the cavemen were carrying flaming torches as they 'discovered fire'.

* Lincoln acts surprised when the camera flashes as he's getting a portrait. In Lincoln's time, photography required a long period of calibration and the subject standing perfectly still. He no doubt was startled that the picture was taken instantly.

* Napoleon gets into "Waterloo" (a stealth pun on its own) because he walks through the turnstile in the middle of a group of kids (Napoleon was famously short).

* Why does Genghis Kahn suddenly attack the mannequin? [[DontSneakUpOnMeLikeThat Because it is behind him holding a tennis racket like a weapon]]!

* Billy's casual demeanor and smirk when he is being interviewed by the San Dimas Police. He'd been to jail a few times at this point in his life, and escaped every time. Surely he was confident he could do it again.

* Freud's first line, when he is bewildered by the Phone Booth's presence: "This is a dream?" Dream interpretation is a key tool in psychoanalysis, which Freud created.

* Joan sees the Phone Booth appear in front of an altar while she was praying. She probably thought Bill and Ted were angels there to take her to heaven. Note that the real Joan of Arc claimed to have talked to angels.
