** In high school, the second half of that (at least) is TruthInTelevision. It was true in 1885, 1955, 1985, and it is today.

* WhyWouldAnyoneTakeHimBack: A non-romantic version. [[spoiler: Many have wondered that why exactly would George let Biff, who bullied him and tried to rape his wife years earlier, so close to his house in the improved 1985.]]

** Dixon steals Lorraine from George at the dance and George starts to walk away. Unfortunately for Marty, [[OhCrap this causes him to start fading out of existence]]. Luckily, George returns, shoves Dixon to the floor and [[BigDamnKiss kisses Lorraine]], ensuring the timeline is fixed and also ensuring the existence of Dave, Linda and Marty.
** Marty tries to send himself back to the future early enough to warn Doc he will be shot by the Libyans. When he gets there, [[MyCarHatesMe the DeLorean stalls on him]] and [[BigHeroicRun he has to make the journey to the mall on foot]]. He gets there moments too late and Doc is shot and seemingly killed again. But, as it turns out, Doc came prepared by wearing a bullet-proof vest, having taped Marty's letter back together.

** Before he was going to travel 25 years into the future by himself, Doc mentions that he'd get to find out who'd win the next 25 World Series. Then in ''Part II'', we see the horrific results of someone using future sports knowledge. Plus, going ahead 25 years would put him smack in the middle of the US recession. Not exactly a time to visit to give you optimism for the future.
