** Even better; Marty, for the first time in his life, actually gets to see his dad kick ass for the first time in ''his'' life. The look on Marty's face says it all.

* When the Libyans arrive the first thing Doc says is "Run for it Marty!!" and it's emphasized even further by the LastWords he says: [[HeroicSacrifice "I'll draw their fire!"]] This shows even the easily frightened Doc cares more about his friends than he does about himself.

** Marty and Doc sharing a hug after being seperated for a long period of time (to them). It doesn't seem like much till you take into account not only had Marty thought [[spoiler: Doc was dead after fading from existence]] but he was trapped in the past with no [=DeLorean=][[spoiler:, no thanks to Edna disappearing into the past with it]].

* The fact that Doc and his family have come back to present-day Hill Valley in this story, and thus see Marty regularly. Whether or not one likes the series in general, it's sweet that the "Partners in Time" on whom the original films focused have not been split apart.

** Finally, when Marty is trying to explain to Doc why it's so important that he gets back to the future, he tells him that "I got a life back in 1985; I got a girl!" and shows Doc the love note Jennifer wrote on the flyer.

* In issue 5, after Emmett tells Clara about the horrors he encountered in 1985-A, she cheers him up by telling him that [[spoiler:she's pregnant with their first child, and they're going to become a family.]] The look of joy on Emmett's face really sells it.

** The 2015 IDW comic book miniseries, written by Gale himself, makes this canon. Apparently Marty was playing his guitar in the garage one day in 1982, and Needles showed up with his punk friends and insisted on "borrowing" the interocitor tube for his amp, in preparation for their show that night. They broke Marty's, and then dared him to steal one (using the old "chicken" trick). The rest is history.

-->'''Bob Gale:''' For years, Marty was told that Doc Brown was dangerous, a crackpot, a lunatic. So, being a red-blooded American teenage boy, age 13 or 14, he decided to find out just why this guy was so dangerous. Marty snuck into Doc’s lab, and was fascinated by all the cool stuff that was there. When Doc found him there, he was delighted to find that Marty thought he was cool and accepted him for what he was. Both of them were the black sheep in their respective environments. Doc gave Marty a part-time job to help with experiments, tend to the lab, tend to the dog, etc.

* I loved the little moment just after George knocked Biff through the wringer, then kindly asks Lorraine if she's alright. It's just so cute!

*** Before leaving, Marty tells George and Lorraine that being with them was "educational", as he learned that [[NotSoDifferent they weren't that different from him]] and he appreciates them more for that.

* It's pretty heartwarming to see the HiddenDepths of future mayor Goldie Wilson. In 1985 he's been [[DisproportionateRetribution described as a bad guy simply because he wanted to replace the clock tower]] despite it being a major part of history. However in 1955 Marty himself sees that he was simply a good guy trying to make a difference. He even tries to advise George [=McFly=] to stick up to Biff during his first appearance. Despite not liking his job triumphantly marches with his mop in hand saying the following:

* When Doc's locked up in Tannen's police van, Marty tries to pilfer the keys to get him out. Tannen punches him, and Doc yanks Marty through the bars, saving his life.
** You can also see a [[{{ContinuityNod}} wedding band]] on his ring finger. It's nice to know that even though Clara isn't physically present, she's still there in spirit.

** Also from Episode 3: [[spoiler: Marty's father deciding to help you. Most of the episode he's shown as a coward and a voyeur, filming people in Hill Valley without their knowing in order to get brownie points from the Brown administration. Later, when his tapes are stolen, he still refuses to help until you remind him of his father. Eight words: "Never be afraid to do the right thing."]]
* Episode 4 has [[spoiler:Citizen Brown taking pity on his wife-to-be despite Marty's plan to break them up]]. Slightly dulled by [[spoiler: Edna's role as the BigBad]] up until then, but only slightly.

**** Er, not exactly. Doc's home in 1985 isn't his family mansion - it's his garage. (The one he flees to in the first movie after Marty first tells him he's from the future) A newspaper clip in the movies indicates the Brown manor burnt down sometime after the fifties (presumably because Doc had already spent his entire family fortune by that point and needed money to continue his research, assuming he didn't just blow the house up by accident. The Doc's a good guy at heart, but after ripping off Libyan nationals, he's probably not above a little insurance fraud...) This is why Marty had to look him up in the phone book in 1955, instead of just going right to his shack.



* Meta example: [[spoiler:Michael J. Fox]] FINALLY appearing in Episode 5 as William [=McFly=] and [[spoiler:[[MindScrew three alternate future versions of Marty]]]].
