    Back to the Future 

On October 25, 1985, Marty McFly, a 17-year old high school senior, visits the home of his friend, an eccentric local scientist named Dr. Emmett L. Brown, but finds hat "Doc" is not there. After playing around with Doc's amplifier, he receives a call from Doc to meet him at 1:15AM at the parking lot of Twin Pines Mall. Unfortunately, Marty realize that he's late for school when Doc tells him that his clock are 25 minutes behind when Doc's basement chime rang. At school, he meets up with his girlfriend Jennifer Parker and soon be reprimanding by Mr. Strickland, the principal of his school for being late. After being rejected from school dance during Marty's band audition (for being 'too darn loud') after school, he walks home with Jennifer while concerning about not able to play for an audience. They happen to receive a flyer from a lady who's holding a campaign to save the clock tower since the tower was struck by lightning on Saturday, November 12, 1955 at 10:04PM while Jennifer uses it to write down her phone number at the back of the flyer as she is going to be at her grandma's house.

When Marty gets home, he finds that the family car has been wrecked by his father George's supervisor, Biff Tannen, who has been drinking and driving (at the same time!), and is complaining to his father about not telling him regarding the 'blind spot' and makes rude comments; bullying him in the process including Marty by calling him 'butthead'. At night the family are having dinner and it turns out that Marty's older brother Dave works at a Burger King, his sister Linda has no love life, and his alcoholic mother Lorraine disapproves of girls chasing boys. She remarks that fate brought her and George together from her father hitting George with a car after he mysteriously fell from a tree. After mother talks about their first kiss, Marty leaves the dining room rudely after having enough of her mother's repetitive storytelling.

Soon, he is then woken up by Doc with the walkie talkie around 12:30 AM, informing him to bring his video camera at Twin Pines Mall. They meet up and while Marty starts to record his film. Marty realize that Doc has created a time machine out of a DeLorean after doing a test run on Einstein by sending him back one minute into the future. Overjoyed by this success, Doc demonstrates to Marty how the time machine works by entering several significant dates into the keypad and telling him that the time machine needs 1.21 gigawatts of electrical power. Doc enters the date November 5, 1955 and explains to Marty that this was the day that he came up with the idea for the flux capacitor, the device that makes time travel possible, when he accidentally fell down inside the toilet. Marty was even shocked that the DeLorean runs on nuclear as Doc uses plutonium in order to for the DeLorean to reach 1.21 gigawatts by ripping off the Libyans by creating a bomb for them out of spare parts from the pinball machine. Suddenly, after refilling the machine and Doc was about to go of to 25 years in the future, a group of Libyan terrorists arrive and shot Doc while Marty is able to escape in the DeLorean accelerating to 88 miles per hour during a car chase and thus inadvertently sending himself thirty years in the past to November 5, 1955 and accidentally destroying one of the two pine trees during his escape of Otis Peabody, who wrongly assume Marty's an alien since he's still wearing the radiation suit and wants to kill him.

Marty was about to head home but realize that Lyon Estate was still a field and under construction, proving that he has gone back into the past. After hiding his car behind the large billboard near Lyon Estate, he walks to Hill Valley and encounters many differences in the past, including a cleaner, less run-down ambiance in the Courthouse Square. While searching for a younger Doc Brown, he accidentally meets his father in a cafe when Biff and his friends bully him to copy his homework. After accidentally recognizing Goldie Wilson that he runs for mayor (which actually causes him to be mayor of Hill Valley in the first place), he follows George only to find him in a tree spying on girls undressing with binoculars, realizing his own father's a peeping tom. Suddenly George loses his balance and was about to get knocked by an oncoming car when Marty pushes him at a cost of hitting him instead. Soon Marty wakes up in his mother's room with her as a teenager. She calls Marty, 'Calvin Klien' due to his underwear and its clear she falls in love with him. He have dinner with Lorraine's family and claims that he has seen the episode of The Honeymooners ("The Man from Space") on TV even though it is brand new, and meets his Uncle Joey, a future 'jailbird' who loves being in his playpen. He decide to leave after seeing his own teenage mother flirting on him; even more shock that she's a totally different woman that he remembers.

Soon, Marty found Doc's address and finds him but 1955 Doc disbelieve him even when showing some proof to him until he mentions about the flux capacitor and how Doc came up with the idea. Shocked, he believes him and Marty shows him the He then shows Doc the DeLorean. Overjoy like his future self, he finally manage to invent something that works and decides to find a way to bring back Marty home. But once he watches his future self on film that Marty record, he was shocked and tells Marty that he's stuck here since he can't produce 1.21 gigawatts in order to power up the DeLorean. Once he mention the only way to do it is by harnessing the lightning bolt but couldn't figure the exact time and location to get one. Marty realize the flyer he has from Jeniffer and show it to Doc the exact time and place of a lightning bolt, one week away at the clock tower. Overjoy again, he decides to help Marty to get back home this Saturday. But once Marty ask him to show around town, Doc warns him that he cannot leave the house as anything he might do would alter the past. Marty mentions he met his parents and Doc ask him to show the 'trick photo' that Marty shows him as proof he's from the future. As proven, his brother's face is faded as Doc mention "erased from existence" as Marty would end up the same fate if he can't get his parents together.

At school, Doc helps him find George in school and Marty makes friend persuading him to take Lorraine to the dance. George refuse as he's too nervous plus Biff is there to take her out on the date. To fully convince him, Marty dresses up in his radioactive suit and rudely awakes George while sleeping. Marty claims to be "Darth Vader" from the planet "Vulcan" threatening him to date Lorraine or he'll fry his brains. The next morning, George finds Marty seeking his help to date Lorraine or Darth Vader would fry his brain. Marty is willing to help him reminding him to keep the Darth Vader story as no one would believe him. In Lou's Cafe, George attempts to flirt with Lorraine but ends up backfired thanks to Biff. No choice, Marty trips Biff taking the hit for George. Biff and his friends chase him using his car but was outsmart and outmaneuver using a skateboard ultimately Biff's car runs into a manure truck. The whole incident makes Lorraine even more attracted to Marty, and she asks Marty to the dance.

Realizing that Lorraine love strong people who could protect their love, Marty accepts the invitation and sets a plan for George by getting him to beat him for taking advantage against her. George likes his idea and wish he could be as brave as him. Picking the words from his girlfriend, Marty mention that all he needs is some self confidence and "if you put your mind to it, you could accomplish anything." Before Marty heads to the date, Doc tells him he's all ready to send him back once Marty fixed everything and he's going to miss him since he makes his life a difference. Marty was going to warn him about his future but Doc tells him not to tell him as he would figure out himself so Marty secretly wrote the letter.

On the night of the dance, Marty was surprise that Lorraine swipe some liquor (and both drink a bit eventually) and doesn't seem to bother Marty taking advantage of her but he affections towards him ends when Lorraine kisses him assuming that he's more like kissing his own brother. To make matters worse Biff (who happens to be drunk) confront Marty for the manure incident and ask his friends to take care of him while he takes advantage of Lorraine who he happens to notice her. While Biff's friends lock him in trunk of singer-guitarist Marvin Berry's car (and saved by them in the process), George arrives according to plan only he's surprise to see Biff instead of Marty harassing Lorraine. George, gaining some self-confidence from Marty's advise, refuse to listen to Biff's orders and tries to save her which Biff decides to teach him a lesson. But once Biff pushes Lorraine to the ground and laughs at her, George becomes infuriated, and knocks Biff out with a single punch to the chin. George and Lorraine head off to the dance just in time for Marty to see them together, having just been freed from Berry's car. Unfortunately, the photograph still fades as he too is going to be next once Marty checks it. Berry sliced his hand open while trying to free Marty from the trunk, meaning that the live music is seemingly over, robbing George and Lorraine of the opportunity to kiss on the dance floor. So Marty decides to volunteers to play the guitar and keeps and eye of them.

During the first number, "Earth Angel", Mark Dixon, a student, cuts in between George and Lorraine. Despite Lorraine asking George to help, he initially walks away from the confrontation as Marty suddenly collapses on stage and sees that his existence begins to fade when his hands shows a bit transparent. Thankfully George gets back his new-found confidence, pushes Dixon to the floor and proceeds to kiss Lorraine. At the moment of the kiss, Marty regain his strength and sees that his photograph is fully restored along with Dave and Linda and in joy begins to play the guitar again with a renewed vigor. At the band's request, Marty plays one more song, "Johnny B. Goode." Marvin Berry calls his cousin, Chuck Berry, and tells that he found the "new sound" Chuck was looking for. Marty does Chuck Berry's trademark duck walk, and then gets carried away imitating other guitar heroes: windmilling his arm and kicking over his amplifier in imitation of Pete Townshend, lying on the stage kicking his legs in imitation of Angus Young, playing behind his head like Jimi Hendrix, and tapping in the style of Eddie Van Halen. In the face of uncomprehending stares from the audience, Marty says, "I guess you guys aren't ready for that yet. But your kids are gonna love it."

Marty meets his teenage parents one last time as Lorraine wants George to take him back home while George thanks him for everything he did even the advise. Before leaving, Marty reminds him about going easy on his kid (him) who's eight years old and accidentally burn the carpet. He rejoin with Doc Brown, who has suspended a cable from the top of the clock tower to channel the lightning into the DeLorean. Just as Marty is getting ready to take the DeLorean to the starting line Doc drew, Doc discovers a letter that Marty had written earlier describing Doc's death. Doc, not wanting to alter the future, tears it up unread and intends to throw it away (but later place the torn pieces into his pocket). After some minor setback, the plan works as Marty accelerates to 88 miles per hour which contacts the cable just as the lightning speeds through the electrified wire, sending the DeLorean back to the future, Doc runs along the fire trails, shouts in laughter at his successful experiment & the last of 1955 seen is Doc looking at the clock tower.

Marty returns to 1985 eleven minutes before he left, but the DeLorean suddenly stops again. While frantically trying to start the car, the Libyans drive past and Marty has no choice but to run to the mall (now called Lone Pine Mall due to Marty having run over one of the pine trees in 1955). Marty arrives too late, and sees Doc being shot and himself driving the DeLorean back in time while the terrorists crash into a Fox Photo booth. Marty rushes down to Doc's body and turns away in tears. But suddenly, Doc wakes up shocking Marty that he's still alive in confusion. Doc reveals that in his his radiation suit is a bulletproof vest while revealing the letter Marty wrote him, yellowed with age and taped back together from the shreds he tore it into 30 years before. Marty jokingly say about Doc's reminder about the future events in which Doc simply tells Marty that he decide to take that chances. In the end Doc drives Marty with his dog Einstein back home while departing to the year 2015.

In the morning, Marty goes down and realize his entire house and family life style has chance. Linda becomes more active in social life while Dave has an office job. He then faints for a while seeing her mother and dad's new looks, both more fit and attractive than before, when they return home from tennis. It also shows Lorraine's changing her mindset as she approves Marty going on a date with Jennifer. Once Marty reminds her about the wrecked car, the family were stunned but George reassures that everything's find as he shows his car being waxed by Biff (who is now timid and more friendlier in front of George) even catching Biff in a fib, who he now runs and auto-detailing service. Still both George and Lorraine agrees that if it wasn't for him, they wouldn't fall in love. Just then Biff carry a delivery box if George's first novel George's first novel, a science-fiction story called A Match Made In Space. He later gives the keys to Marty when he finds that the Toyota pick-up truck that he previously coveted is now his as a gift from his parents. Jeniffer came to greet him and Marty was happy to see her.

As Marty and Jennifer are about to take a ride in the new truck, Doc reappears in the DeLorean, telling Marty to come with him to the future, even asking him to bring along Jennifer since this involves their kids. After entering the car with Doc, once he pulls out of the driveway, Marty points out that there is not enough road to accelerate to 88 mph, with Doc replying, "Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads," and flies off in the now fusion-powered and hover-converted DeLorean ending the movie.

    Back to the Future II 

The movie starts where Marty McFly ,Jeniffer Parker (which also concern her as well after she sees the DeLorean) and Doc Brown leave Marty's house and time travel to the year 2015 to stop Marty's kids from destroying their lives. However, Biff Tannen comes out of the house intending to show Marty one of the new Biff's Auto Detailing matchbooks he has had printed, and accidentally witnesses their departure. They arrive on October 21, 2015 where Doc is forced to tranquilize Jennifer because she asks too many questions about the future; Doc's firm belief is that no one should be allowed to know too much about their own destiny or future.

Doc lands the DeLorean in an alleyway adjacent to the Courthouse Square where they take Jennifer out of the DeLorean and lay her to the side as she is still sleeping and as to not disturb their mission. Doc explains to him that Marty Jr. was approached by Griff Tannen, Biff's grandson, and his gang and was asked (forced) to join in a robbery. The robbery fail and Marty Jr. was used as a scapegoat as Doc shows him a 2015 newspaper of him being captured. After that his sister Marlene McFly attempts to break him to of jail only to cause more problems which leads to the the McFly's family downfall. Doc's plan is for Marty to impersonate his son and refuse Griff's offer.

Disguise in Marty Jr.s outfit, Marty follows his plan and meet upon an elderly Biff and later Griff who ask him to wait inside seeing his grandpa not coating his car in Cafe 80's. The plan nearly messed up when Marty Jr. unexpectedly comes. Marty manages to switch places with Marty Jr. who was tossed at the back of the counter and refuse Griff's offer which leaves to a chase scene after Griff and his gang are not happy with his answer(similar to the 1955 in the first movie). Borrowing a hoverboard, Marty manages to escape the gang, but was nearly caught when he lands near the center of the pond as the hoverboard stop working. Griff and his gang was about to beat him until Marty purposely drops down into pond causing them to crash into the courthouse and end up in jail, preventing the robbery; Elderly Biff seems to remember this similar experience back in 1955.

After escaping, Mart notice the advertisement of Grays Sports Almanac 1950-2000 and decide to buy it since it shows winning results. Once meeting back with Doc, Doc was devastated to see the commotion but Marty notice the headline has change to Griff being arrested for vandalism in the courthouse. Joy, Doc decide to return but snatches Marty's almanac warning him that it would comes a huge alteration in the past should it falls in the wrong hands. This was overheard by the elderly Biff when he notice the real Marty running away out of the cafe, realizing that Marty is from the past. Doc was going to throw it away until he was shock to see a few cops picking up Jennifer, who is still tranquilized, back to her 2015 'home' since her fingerprint in the future doesn't change. Doc tells them that if Jennifer sees their future self, she would either faint from shock or in worse case scenario, a paradox results in upsetting the time-space continuum and destroy the entire universe. They decide to follow them while Doc throws it into the trash unknowing that the elderly Biff overhears everything and takes the almanac out from the trash.

Upon waking up Jennifer was scared as to see her future family and hides inside the closet and sneaks into the bathroom realizing that Marty's family life isn't what she think it is. She then witness the 2015 elderly Marty gets a video telephone call from his colleague Needles, who goads him into cooperating in a profitable, but illegal, scheme which Marty agrees after Needles calls him "chicken". However, their Japanese boss at Cus Co, Ito T. Fujitsu ("The Jitz"), has been listening in. He appears suddenly on the video screen and Marty is summarily fired. "The Jitz" fires Marty by sending a fax to him, bearing the words YOU'RE FIRED!!! (also superimposed over the video image in large letters filling the screen), one of which is taken by Jennifer. Doc finally finds Jennifer and tries to sneak her out of the house. But before leaving, she retrieves the 'YOU'RE FIRED' letter and learns that 2015 Marty's hand is broken after crashing into a Rolls Royce during a speed race dare at Lone Pine Mall (the future Marty's residence) and quits from music career. Worse after Marty being pressed charges for destroying the Rolls Royce and unable to play the guitar, he felts into guilt and depression of his actions. Before Jennifer exits the house, suddenly her future self sees her and both faint from shock.

Unaware, 2015 Biff manages to follow the DeLorean and while Marty and Doc were to rescue Jennifer he manages to use it and travels back in time and returns back in pain while exiting the DeLorean and accidentally breaks off his cane. He hides behind a nearby car while watching Marty and Doc carrying Jennifer back into the DeLorean unaware that Biff starts to vanish as his plan works. Realizing the consequences, Doc decides that after returning back to 1985, he is going to destroy the DeLorean as it would only bring disaster and misfortune especially to the wrong hands.

Returning back to 1985, Marty and Doc leave Jennifer on her porch swing but didn't bother to notice the changes in the timeline when there's security bars on the windows of the house. They didn't notice the sign of Lyon Estates being defaced when Doc returns Marty back home. This however make Marty realizes he's not at his home when he trespassed a black family house confusing him to be his house the usual way. Rushing out of the streets he notice there's a lot of wreckage and gang fights while cops starts chasing them. Marty though he has gone back in the wrong year but picks up a newspaper showing today's date 'October 26, 1985'. Suddenly he is confronted at gun point by Strickland who wore a bulletproof vest wrongly assume he's been stealing newspaper from him. Marty was shock to know that his school was vandalize six years ago and luckily escape from Strickland when a group of teenage gangsters shoot at his plant pots.

Entering the middle of town, Marty finds the place to be a dilapidated, crime-infested, corrupt hell-on-earth with the courthouse now turned into a casino hotel, attached to which is the Biff Tannen Museum . A video documents Biff's life, describing how Biff became a millionaire overnight after a trip to the racetrack on his 21st birthday, how subsequent successful bets on sports led to him being dubbed "the Luckiest Man on Earth," how Biff parlayed his lucky winning streak into a vast business empire called Biff Co, successfully legalized gambling in 1979, and in 1973 realized his lifelong dream by marrying his high school sweetheart, Lorraine Baines McFly. Marty wails in shock until Biff's goons appear and knock Marty out. Upon waking up, he finds himself in a room with her mother only she's physically abused, an alcoholic and have major plastic surgery because Biff demanded her to get breast implants.

Just then, Marty's 'stepfather', Biff bursts in and sees him, demanding to know why he's not in Switzerland, implying that in this reality, Marty and his siblings are in overseas boarding schools. Biff warns Lorraine that Marty is a butthead just like his father. Lorraine, offended defends George, telling Biff that he's not even half the man he was. Biff roughly pushes her to the floor. Marty rushes at Biff, but Biff's gang grab Marty, and he punches Marty in the stomach. Lorraine snaps and tells Biff she's leaving. But Biff threatens her by cutting Lorraine off from his money, cancel Linda's credit cards, revoke Dave's probation, and put Marty and them all in jail, just like her brother Joey. He leaves warning Marty to get lost within an hour. Marty is shocked, wondering how she could leave George for Biff. Lorraine says that they must have hit Marty too hard this time and to much shock on Marty, she tells him that he's at Oak Park Cemetery for the past twelve years. To Marty's horror, he finds his father's grave where he dies on March 15, 1973 and cries in grief. Just then Doc finds him and knew he would come here to know about his father.

Doc takes Marty back to his lab and shows him bound collections of newspapers which he obtained by breaking into the boarded and closed down library. Marty tears out the page of the newspaper that reports his father was shot dead in an alleyway while on his way to receive a book award. Using an old chalkboard, Doc theorizes that somewhere in the past, the timeline has diverged into an alternate reality. He then shows the bag that contains the sports almanac since he remembers the receipt inside and even shows Biff's broken fist-shaped cane handle, which he had found in the DeLorean. By the clues he has in the DeLorean, it reveals that 2015 Biff had given the book to himself sometime in the past, thus changing his future. He even shows a proof that Biff is carrying an almanac in the 1958 newspaper where he make his 'so-called' first lucky win. Doc says this is how time travel can be misused and why the time machine must be destroyed... after they've corrected the timeline. Marty blame himself as he think of that idea but Doc tells him what's been done been done and going to fix this before destroying the DeLorean. Marty suggest to go back into the future but Doc tells him they can't as they would end up in a future where Biff is way too powerful, married to Lorraine and Doc is committed into an asylum. Doc suggest going into the past but doesn't know when but Marty has an idea.

Biff is in a jacuzzi with two topless women, watching A Fistful of Dollars on TV, when Marty comes in and turns off the TV with the remote, and confronts Biff about Grays Sports Almanac. Biff invites him to the office where Marty ask him when he gets the book after Biff reveal an old almanac. He tells him the date as he remembers that he had crashed his car during drag racing (in reality it is a manure truck), he met old Biff who claims to be a distant relative and gives him the almanac saying it would make him rich. He even adds that there's no trick into it and also mention that if someday he's been ask by either a crazy scientist or a kid he has to kill them in which Biff pulls out the gun to kill Marty. But Marty manages to distract him and runs out of his room for his life. He was saved by Doc, tricking Biff that he's going to jump down during the confrontation on the rooftop and knocking Biff out at the same time. They head back to November 12, 1955 which Doc tells Marty it's unbelievable that old Biff chose that date, that it must have cosmic significance, or perhaps an amazing coincidence. Marty then realize they need to get Jennifer and Einstein back but Doc reassure him that once they restore to the proper timeline, the alternate world will change around Jennifer and Einstein and neither of them would have any memory of these horrible events.

The two of them go back to 1955. Doc advises Marty to wait until Biff of 2015 gives his younger self the almanac so that he can go back to the future with the time machine. In disguise, Marty follows Biff to a mechanic's shop in the middle of town. After arguing regarding the repair for his car and met Lorraine who prefers to date with Calvin Klein (Marty's alter ego in Back to the Future) than him, Biff suddenly met his older self which he starts the car saying it is his lucky day while driving off with Marty inside the boot of the car. Back at Biff's home, Biff was surprise he knows his place as Old Biff gives him the almanac saying it makes him rich. He even proofs it to him that the almanac's record is true by mentioning UCLA wins by 19-17 convincing Biff to bet on the winner as before Old Biff leaves. Sadly Marty didn't manage to grab the book in time and decides to find him during the dance after getting himself locked in the garage.

At the dance, Marty continually tries to obtain the almanac. He follows Mr. Strickland, who had confiscated the almanac and after stealthily obtaining the almanac, he discovers that Biff had actually swapped the cover with an Ooh-La-La magazine. He then spots his father George knocking out Biff, like before. Marty then snags the almanac from Biff. Just as he radios Doc to pick him up, he runs into Biff's cronies, who mistake him for "Calvin Klein." They chase Marty backstage where he is able to stop them from attacking his earlier self by dropping sandbags on them, knocking them out cold. However, in a confrontation with Biff where he calls Marty a "chicken", Marty gets knocked out when he is hit by the door as his earlier self leaves to meet with the 1955 Doc at the clock tower, and Biff gets the almanac back. Eventually, Biff, nose bloodied from Marty punching him, drives off in his newly cleaned car, and Doc and Marty follow him in the DeLorean. Hanging onto the side of the car with the aid of the hoverboard, Marty finally grabs the almanac and is rescued by Doc from being run over by furious Biff's car and Biff crashes into a manure truck again.

The storm begins to start as Doc lands Marty to the ground for him to burn the almanac to repair the timeline. Overjoy they were happy that their timeline is restored but suddenly the DeLorean was struck by lightning causing it to disappeared. Marty panics under the rain until a few minutes later a Western Union delivery man appears with a letter. The letter was given to Western Union with the explicit instructions to deliver it to Marty "at this exact location, at this exact minute, November 12, 1955". Marty tears open the letter to find out it is in fact from Doc, who is trapped in 1885 but tells him he is alright. Overjoy Marty is relieve while the delivery guy was curious what's going on and Marty realize there's one person who can help him.

Soon, Marty rushes off to find the 1955 Doc, who has just succeeded in sending the other Marty back to 1985. Upon seeing that Marty has returned from the future, Doc exclaims "Great Scott!", faints, the words "TO BE CONCLUDED..." ending the movie.

    Back to the Future III 
Picking up from the last movie, back at November 12, 1955, 1955 Doc woke up in his bed realizing while recording in his tape that he manages to send Marty back to 1985 and dream he came back. Unfortunately he was shock to see Marty waking up in one of his sofa as Marty passes the letter from his future self. It turns out that 1985 Doc has been struck by a lightning bolt and accidentally send him back to 1885. It also mentions the location of the DeLorean, how to repair it so Marty could return home (and destroy it which confuses 1955 Doc but Marty tells him not to think so much) while telling Marty not to pick him up; he's perfectly happy in that era and accept his new life as a blacksmith in the Old West fearing the consequences of time traveling and takes care of Einstein. So they decide to retrieve the DeLorean in an abandoned gold mine near the cemetery. But after retrieving it, Marty and 1955 Doc is shocked that 1985's Doc dies on September 7, 1885, a few days after he wrote the letter. Doc is not happy that he's going to get killed by Buford 'Mad Dog' Tannen over the matter of eighty dollars and being erected by his beloved Clara who's name he does not recognizes. Ultimately, Marty decides to save Doc by going back to 1885.

Out in the Indian-motifed Pohatchee Drive-In Theater , Doc finally restore the DeLorean but with some replacement parts from 1955 and it can't fly due to the damage the lightning cause. Doc even gives Marty a flashy cowboy outfit and thanks him again while Marty goes back to September 2, 1885 with the DeLorean. Unfortunately, upon arriving he's been chased by Indians and manage to hide the car in a cave. However after the Indians leaves due to being actually chased by the Cavalry, Marty realize that the fuel line's been ripped thanks to one of the Indians attack. Before he could do anything he was chased out by a black bear. Dehydrated, he collapse at a nearby farm where he wakes up in a cabin live by his own great-great-grandfather Seamus McFly and his family. Marty introduce himself as 'Clint Eastwood' and seek help to find his friend Doc in which Seamus is gladly to help him judging by his looks and body.

The next day, Marty goes into Hill Valley, and goes into the local saloon to try and find out where Doc lives. Unfortunately, he comes at a very bad timing when Buford came into the saloon overhearing Marty's a friend of the blacksmith that he wants to talk to. They first start picking on him for his flashy cowboy outfit until Marty accidentally calls him 'Mad Dog' which enrages Buford as he hates that name and shoots Marty below the legs. This cause Marty to 'dance' which accidentally trips on a loose board causing the spit bowl to fall on top of Buford, angering him further. Marty tries to run away but Buford and his gang manages to capture him and intend to hang him from the partly-complete clock tower. Luckily he was saved by Doc with his custom-made rifle. Buford was pissed and blame him for the horseshoe Doc attaches to his horse as his horse make him spill his bottle of Kentucky Red-eye so he ask for $5 for the bottle he spill and another $75 for the horse. Doc refuse and ask him to bring it back but once Buford say he already shot the horse dead , Doc can't help him in which Buford threaten him that someday he's going to get a bullet in his head someday as his gang leaves. Although Doc was not happy about Marty coming over, he's still happy to see him eventually and decides to change him out of the 'ridiculous outfit' that his younger self make him wear in his house.

At Doc' blacksmith shop, he was shock to find out his own tombstone and joke that he should have paid him. He even curious who's Clara but Marty assume it is his lover in which Doc jeers that he has no time for love. This answers the identity of Clara once the Mayor visits him to greet a new residents of a school teacher by the name Clara Clayton. Doc decides to head back with Marty but unfortunately once Marty tells him that there is no gas due to the Indian attack, Doc was stunned as he informs Marty that the DeLorean always runs on gas despite the use of Mr.Fusion to travel back in time for the flux capacitor. Since it would take the next century to find a gas station, they decide to find an alternative ways to boost the DeLorean to 88mph. They tried to use horses to pull it but it only reaches 20mph. They try to pour the strongest whiskey from the saloon inside the tank, but destroying the engine's fuel injector. Doc says it would take six months to fix it but Marty reminds him he doesn't have much time since he's going to get shot in a few days even when Doc suggest to wait until winter to get some decent ice to speed up the DeLorean. However, upon hearing the train, this gives them an idea when they talk to the conductor about it which coincidentally the next train appears on Monday.

Doc came up a plan to use the train locomotive to push the DeLorean over Shonash Ravine (confuse that it is not Clayton Ravine in their time) but when they check out the Ravine, they realize the bridge isn't complete. However Doc sticks to the idea as this would definitely work. Just then they spotted a runaway carriage while a lady in it calls for help. Doc manages to save her on time before her whole carriage drops down in the ravine. This also marks Doc's love towards her as she introduce herself as Clara Clayton. Turns out that she too is interest in science but have to leave while Clara's packing her stuffs in her new home. On the way back, Doc was glad that she saves Miss Clayton from the Ravine but Marty realize that she's that same school teacher who falls inside the ravine which is name 'Clayton Ravine' as some of the kids who doesn't like certain teachers wish they would fall into a ravine. Doc is shocked that he alter the past; this deepens his resolve to destroy the time machine.

After coming up with the plan to return back to the future, Marty and Doc attend the town festival in which is also the inauguration ceremony of the clock tower which is still being built. Taking this opportunity, Marty and Doc gets their photo taken in front of the clock before it is set in place. While Marty decides to try his luck in the shooting gallery (which impress everyone of his shooting skills), Doc meets Clara again and they dance in joy. However, Buford decides to kill Doc during the dance due to him saving Marty. He plans to shoot him using a small derringer, hidden in his jacket but once Marty notice it and sees that the tombstone has been altered, Marty foil his assassination plan by tossing a plate at his hand, wasting Buford's only bullet to hit at Doc's hat. Marty tells Buford to leave him alone while Buford decides to have a duel showdown after Marty's actions. Marty refuses but once Buford calls him "Yellow", Marty accepts in which he is challenge at Monday morning, the day he was suppose to leave. Marty was soon congratulated with everyone for standing up against Buford and present him a gun and bullets.

The next day, Marty realize that Doc's gravestone has changed and was glad he manages to save him but Doc reminds him that since the gravestone is there, one of them may end up dead as Marty realizes his name was going to be written when an undertaker measure his body for his coffin after the duel. At night, while placing the DeLorean in place on Monday, Doc warns him not to get angry when someone call him names and even accidentally hinting him about the accident in the second movie. Marty was shock and ask out of curiosity of his future but Doc refuses to tell him but advise him "Marty, we all do things that affect the course of our lives. You gotta do what you gotta do, and I gotta do...what I gotta do". Doc changes the subject that he decides to stay with Clara in 1885. Marty refuse the idea but instead suggest to bring her along but Doc rejects the idea as time traveling may injured him future; worrying the consequences.

To make matters worse, Doc comes over to her house and confess the truth to Clara about his real identity but instead got slap and dumped by her for lying and making up a ridiculous story. Dejected and heartbroken, he heads into a saloon and got drunk after one glass. The next morning, Marty was looking for Doc since today's the day they have to leave but finds him still drunk in the saloon, telling the truth about his year in which everyone in the saloon thinks he has gone drunkard crazy. Luckily thanks to a wakeup juice from the bartender, Doc manages to regain himself but it was too late as Buford and his gang catches him for the duel while both hide inside the saloon.

Doc and Marty notice the tombstone photo of Clint Eastwood's name, prompting Marty couldn't win in a gunfight. Buford even tries to taunt him even calling him names but after Marty realize the real reason why he's being killed and Doc's advise, he did not matter what Buford or anyone else thinks of him. They tried to escape from the side door of the saloon but Buford gang caught Doc threatening Marty if he doesn't show up Doc dies. With no choice, Marty decides to duel Buford. However during the showdown, Marty intentionally drop down his weapon asking him to fight each other like men. This didn't work as Buford shoots him on the chest, shocking the audience and Doc. Buford laughs at his naivety and stupidity and decides to finish him off but everyone was shock when Marty kicks the gun away from his hand, standing up as if nothing has happen to him. Buford punches him in the chest but somehow hurt his arm. Marty reveals that he uses a stove cover as a bullet proof vest and uses it to hit Buford to send him knocking into the tombstone. Marty then gives a final punch to him in which Buford lands face first into a cartload of manure. Everyone cheers for him even Shemus who was there to witness the event until Marshal James Strickland and his men arrives. Buford's men release Doc while Buford was under arrest by the Marshal while Buford comments "I hate manure!" before being taken away by the Marshal. Marty and Doc are now happy that the picture in the tombstone vanish while quickly gets into their actual plan.

Meanwhile, Clara was about to leave town but then after hearing a conversation from the passengers behind regarding Doc being upset in the saloon of hurting her, she stops the train and rushes back to Hill Valley only she's a couple minutes late for Marty and Doc to start their plan. She decides to catches him with a horse. After 'borrowing' the train, they put their plan in motion and pushes the DeLorean to 88mph with the train by using special logs to boost up the train at the cost of the train's engine to be destroyed once it reaches it's maximum speed. However, by the time Doc was about to join Marty, Clara caught up and get Doc's attention. Doc was shock as Clara apologize to Doc and decides to join along. Doc goes back to take her but suddenly, the engine explodes causing Clara to fall dangling on the train. Marty was shock and unable to stop the train, he decides to use the hoverboard and passes it to Doc for him to rescue Clara just in time. Marty realize it is going to reach 88mph and no choice but to leave without him in the DeLorean as it disappears after hitting 88mph while the train flies off the bridge, destroying the train after it drops down the ravine.

Arriving back at October 27, 1985 on Eastwood Ravine (change due to his character 'supposedly' drop in the ravine), Marty returns back into the present but suddenly he gets out of the DeLorean. Marty returns to the wreckage seconds later, knowing that Doc's wishes have been fulfilled and the time machine has been destroyed but upsets that he would never see Doc again knowing he's stuck in 1885. He first check on his family and sees that everything's back to normal as how it happen from the end of the first movie and takes his truck to visit Jennifer. He takes her (after waking up with a kiss) to show her the wreckage until they reach Lone Pine Mall as Jennifer recalls the exact incident when Needles' gang came and challenge Marty in a dual. He accepts after Marty was being called 'chicken' much to Jennifer's persuasion. But all the sudden once the traffic light turns green, Marty reverse the truck while telling Jennifer he wasn't that stupid to challenge them. But soon he witness Needles' truck nearly crashes into the Rolls Royce and realize had he accepts, he might have crash into it. Jennifer checks the firing paper she got from 2015 and sees the "YOU'RE FIRED" words vanish, knowing he has change the future.

He returns to the DeLorean's wreckage site with Jennifer with a sigh that he would never see Doc again. While Jennifer tries to comfort Marty, suddenly the railroad crossing lights activates but oddly with no train on sight. Confused, they were pushed back by an explosion as a modern-like train appears out of no where. They were greeted by Doc telling them that this time machine train runs on steam with the Flux Capacitor located on the front. He is now a married man to Clara and have two sons, Jules and Verne. He came back making sure Marty did not worry about him and present to him the framed photo of both him and Doc in front of the clock with the inscription 'To Marty, Partner in Time. September 5th, 1885". Jennifer ask regarding the paper that she receives from the future that recently vanish. Doc assures them that since it disappeared the future lies towards whatever they want and make it a good one. So as they were about to leave, Marty ask if he's going back to the future but Doc tells him that he has already been there while the train vanish into thin air ending the movie.

Telltale Games

    Episode 1 - It's about time. 

May 14, 1986.

6 months have passed since Doctor Emmett "Doc" Brown disappeared with his family and Time Travel Train in Back To the Future III. After a very vivid dream about Doc being erased from existence, Marty wakes up in his room. His mother downstairs realize he is awake and reminds him about the estate sale of Doc's belongings has already started and that he should join his father, George, to pick up some of his stuff before everything is sold. Realizing he's late, he quickly goes to Doc's garage to stop it but sadly it was too late as some of Doc's stuff has been sold.Since Doc has been missing for so long, the city wants to sell his house and turn it into a parking lot while George volunteers to supervise the sale so Doc's stuff will be treated with a minimum of respect. Luckily, Marty manages to take back Doc's Notebook before Biff takes it back home. Suddenly, he hear a familiar sound from outside and decide to check it out. He is surprised to find the time-traveling DeLorean showing up with only Einstein in it, an unknown shoe and a tape recorder inside. Once he plays the tape, Doc's voice is played explaining that he had built a safety measure device which automatically returned the car to the present, presuming he might get into trouble in the past or future and trusting Marty to save him. Unfortunately despite Doc telling him to follow the 'Last Time Departed', it suddenly malfunctions when Marty checks it. With the unknown shoe as the only clue, he ask Einstein to find out who it belongs.

Following the unknown shoe in the car, Marty follows Einstein and ends up visiting the elderly Edna Strickland, a former reporter and Vice Principal Strickland's older sister. Returning back her shoe, Marty soon finds out that Doc, posing as "Carl Sagan", was stranded the 14th June 1931, charged as an arsonist by burning down the speakeasy under the mob boss Irving "Kid" Tannen's control, and was killed by Kid's gang the next day as soon he was released. So upon returning back to the Delorean, he was confronted by George but he wasn't there to stop him even though Marty creates an excuse after wearing the 1931 outfit. George only tells him to be careful and entrust Marty about dealing with his problems.

And so Marty and Einstein travel to 1931 aboard the Delorean, and Marty meets Doc in jail who assume he's safe since he's going to be release tomorrow. But once he shows tomorrow's newspaper that Marty swipe from the elderly Edna (which in the present is consider old), Doc was shocked and after some rejected suggestions by Marty, Doc suggests that he seeks help with his younger self (17-year-old Emmett Brown, who works at the courthouse) to complete a Rocket Powered Drill to get him out of jail before he is killed without telling Emmett what the drill is for and not revealing about time-traveling. During his 'quest', Marty meets Arthur McFly (his young grandfather), Irvin "Kid" Tannen and a younger Edna Strickland. With a bit of help from Dr.Brown, Marty manages to lie his way through young Emmett that he's from the patent office to check the Rocket Powered Drill and want to present the drill to their office before they give the honor to 'Dr.McCoy'. However Marty realize that in order for Emmett to show the drill, he needs to subpoena his grandfather (For associating with Kid Tannen's illegal speakeasy business) and get some alcohol for the fuel.

After getting those done Emmett is free for the rest of the day and he's able to build the Rocket Powered Drill to get Doc out of jail (despite the minor setback argument from his father due to the 'trick' he ploys to get the alcohol). However, out of guilt, Marty decides to tell the truth about getting his friend escaped from jail but oddly young Emmett lets him. Upon reaching the station, Doc is kidnapped by Kid with a Police vehicle. Marty uses the Rocket parts of the Drill on Edna's bicycle to catch up with Kid and successfully rescue Doc.

As they are about to return to the future, both were relieve this is over until Marty finds himself disappearing.

    Episode 2 - Get Tannen ! 
As he starts to fade, Doc is shocked as he reads the 1931 newspaper Marty brought revealing that his grandfather, Arthur McFly is killed by Tannen's goons after testifying against Kid Tannen once Arthur receive a subpoena. He adds that since he was killed 5 minutes ago, the timeline must be catching up as if Arthur's killed neither Marty or his father George will be born. Ultimately, Doc decide to go back to the time before his trial ends warning Marty that mustn't see each other but as they were about to leave in the DeLorean, suddenly a cop shows up and threatens Doc/"Carl Sagan the Arsonist" with a gun while waiting for backup. Marty pick ups the keys that Doc purposely dropped and starts the DeLorean to rescue his father without Doc.

Marty goes back at 4pm, avoiding his other self, and manages to save Arthur from Tannen's goons when they were about to rat him out below the soup kitchen. After reuniting and rescuing Doc, they put Arthur somewhere else that he should stay low. Arthur then asks both if they are "G-Men." Deciding to just play along (and worried he may never find Sylvia if he doesn't come back to Hill Valley), Marty and Doc declare that they ARE G-Men and tell him look out for a suspect named "Sylvia" (which is the name of Marty's grandmother, Arthur's future wife) since she's the girl for him before leaving him.

Upon returning to 1986, suddenly Marty finds out that his father is been crippled, Biff has two other brothers, Cliff and Riff and the elderly Kid Tannen is still alive. Worse, he find out that the Tannen gang family are the 5th most dangerous crime family in California, running Hill Valley. To prove it Biff shows Marty a gun lighter present by Don Valenti, leader of the Valenti family who ranked 3rd. After outwitting the Tannen brothers, Marty was shocked to see the elderly Kid in the limousine about to shoot him. Luckily he was rescued by Doc and both drives away in the DeLorean. He informs him that in that new timeline somehow Kid Tannen wasn't caught and the Tannen crime family now runs Hill Valley and endlessly harasses everyone there including the McFlys. In the end, Marty and Doc travel back to August 25, 1931, the night when Kid Tannen was supposed to be arrested.

Doc explains that Kid Tannen was originally arrested by a rookie cop by the name of Danny Parker (Jennifer (Marty's girlfriend)'s grandfather) when Trixie Trotter, his beautiful girlfriend and the singer at his Speakeasy, turned on him by giving some incriminating evidence. With the help of a disguise and the lighter he pick up from the Tannen brothers, he manages to enter the speakeasy easily posing as a member of the Valenti gang.

Before entering the Speakeasy, he meets up with Edna who was practicing her song of "You Should Care"...badly and young Emmett doing some rocket car testing with Einstein. However their relationship is severed when Edna and her society got kicked out by Judge Brown, knowing Emmett's true intention that her soup is filled with alcohol. Since then, Edna's been harassing him and his experiment and even writes bad article about Emmett. But it seems that after the major argument with his father, the timeline accelerate as the following day he quit his job and devoted mostly towards science thanking Marty for it.

On further investigation, it turns out the Danny Parker was the same guy who Marty accidentally lets the Tannen mobs escaped when Marty first arrived in 1931 (when the DeLorean teleported in between the gun car chase fight), letting an important witness getaway and unable to apprehend an 80-year-old arsonist (Doc). He was demoted for the 'car vanishing into thin air' story, been sent to a psychiatrist by his family and his girlfriend breaks up with him. Out of guilt, he decides to become a corrupt cop by secretly being in cahoots with Kid Tannen. However once he talk to Marty, he realize he was in the wrong and ended up sobbing in grief. With the help of the music score that he swipe from the younger Edna, he manages to boost back his confidence.

As for Trixie's case, she intends to betray Kid Tannen but she couldn't since the one person she trust isn't here...Arthur McFly. Luckily, Marty manages to see him returning back to Hill Valley to watch a movie. Marty and Doc discuss to him to meet Trixie Trotter to turn on Kid in which Arthur realize where this is going but still won't reveal the secret to them. Unfortunately, one of his goons spots Doc and informs Kid about it. To make matters worse, when Trixie manages to reunite with Arthur, Kid caught him and was going to kill him but Trixie saves him by making a promise she won't sell him out thus planning to destroy any incriminating evidences to Danny after the speakeasy is close. But Marty manages to convince Trixie in giving Officer Parker evidence by tricking her into believing Kid breaks his promise by killing Arthur after seeing a caricature of Arthur on the 'Wall of Fame' (in which all of the people frame up there are killed by Kid).

After solving both problems Parker tells everyone to get out of the speakeasy but they soon realize Kid is on the loose thanks to a tip-off from his goons that someone is plotting to blow up the speakeasy with dynamite. After finding Kid and expose his location, Kid was seen taking Edna as hostage believing Doc didn't do it. But after knowing his plan fail and Marty's a phony, he decides to take out his anger at Marty and Parker with an Tommy gun. Thanks to Marty's wits and Emmett's invention (with a bit of Doc's help), Kid is brought in and arrested, causing Edna to develop an interest in Emmett when Edna was saved by one of Emmett's prototype flying machine.

As Marty flies the DeLorean to 88mph, Doc realizes that something went terribly wrong on the way back to 1986 when his Frankenstein movie ticket that he keeps for memories (which cause him to use electricity for the flying machine) begins to fade from existence. He tells Marty to stop but it was too late as they already hit 88mph and ends up in another alternative 1986. Panic, Marty crashes into a poster while in shock to see Doc is gone. Just then he hear his voice from the poster he crash by the name of First Citizen Brown.

    Episode 3 - Citizen Brown 

As Marty tries to get out of the DeLorean that is now wedged in a billboard, he meets an alternate Jennifer Parker, punk rock vandal who is totally different from the correct timeline's Jennifer, and asks for her cooperation to get out. She trades him a Tire Iron with Kid Tannen's booze. Marty breaks out of the DeLorean with the Tire Iron and finally reaches the ground. Unfortunately the DeLorean crashes into the ground, causing further damage, to the great displeasure of Marty. But thanks to the DeLorean's battery and its flying tires, he manages to get above Hill Valley's wall and further go into the city without needing the pass.

Upon visiting, he meets alternative versions of his mother (retain her drinking problem) his father (retain his peeping tom habit, by working as a city surveillance guy through cameras) and Biff (who acts very nice after taking Citizen Plus and can't swear nor violence). It is also revealed that Emmett and Edna got married, resulting in a drastic change in the former, and as a result, everything that happened in the movie trilogy never occurred. He even realize that him and Jennifer's personality and role is reversed and now she's dating with another guy dumping Marty that he's a square. But worse, once he checks on his George's work, it turns out that nobody likes the way Citizen Brown runs the place. So in order to meet Citizen Brown he seeks advice from Biff that by breaking enough rules and demerits you can see him.

Marty goes on a mission to break 3 rules. First he decides to find some booze. George suspects Lorraine that her drinking habit hasn't change and ask him to check on her. But Marty was bad at covering thus causing both to argue. With the help of the statue, he blocks the camera while Lorraine has the time to take a sip of booze from her flask. Luckily, Marty decides to take it from him and keep this as a secret while she broke into tears. However he purposely gets himself caught by Jennifer Parker's dad (who's now the Chief of Police of Hill Valley), confiscating Lorraine's flask and gives him demerit. Second, he manages to find Einstein and release his muffler but this manages to give him demerit after scaring Edna who was taking for a walk. Oddly she remembers Einstein and ask Officer Parker to throw it inside the trash chute. And finally, he manages to convince Jennifer that he's the only one for her by beating his boyfriend, Leech in a rock showdown and kisses inside Leech's working place, only to be caught by Edna kissing inside. Not only he gets demerit for it, he gets a lecture from Officer Parker to stay away from his daughter. Ultimately, Marty was caught by Edna and the guards and send him to his husband , Citizen Brown.

Soon, Marty is brought to Brown who coldly greets him and acts as his psychiatrist even when Marty calls him 'Doc'. Marty tries to convince him about time travel, the DeLorean and he has met his younger self under a different name but he assume that Marty has gone mental. Not giving up, he tries to convince Brown on the work he did when he was teen truthfully but this causes Brown to get angry accusing Marty for trying to confuse him. So in retaliation, Brown show him his 'achievement' photo where he capture Kid Tannen single-handily and met the woman of his life, Edna. But Marty manages to point himself and the original version of Doc which in disbelieve Brown sees it and realize that Marty's telling the truth. Marty tells him the difference between his original timeline and the current timeline now but this enrage Brown when Marty compares his timeline way better than the current since it ends Hill Valley like a police state. Brown disbelieve his word but Marty can show him proof. Unaware for Marty, Brown believes him as he let him leaves once the conversation is over while Edna leaves after eavesdropping their conversation.

Marty goes back home and finds an unconscious George on the floor near his monitors. He then check the surveillance video to shows Biff KOing George with a bat, and his Citizen Plus Treatment watch flashing and showing X:11 while he's bashing the surveillance equipment. Worse, Georges surveillance tapes were stolen, which is the proof that Marty needs to prove his point to Brown. So he meets with Biff and confront him about it. But Biff doesn't remember the event ever occurring, and he can't break rules as he gets all sick just by swearing. Marty plays a bit with his watch and notices that the X:11 setting turns Biff into a mindless zombie. Marty asks Biff to retrieve the tapes and Biff jumps into the trash chute.

As Marty follows him into the trash chute, Marty is surprise to see that he lands inside Kid Tannen's old speakeasy and reveals that Edna's the real mastermind behind all of it. She modify Biff's watch to X:11 and orders Biff to catch Marty. Marty manages to snap Biff out of it by showing him many of his favorite things that are hidden in this room (Beer, Porn, Cars ...) The sheer stress makes Biff collapse and he passes out. Unfortunately, it was too late as Edna has already erased the tapes during Marty's struggle with Biff. Just then Brown appears with them after hearing the report from Officer Parker about Biff's into the trash chute. He even can't believe that Edna is using him and even overheard her confession. He was more furious that Edna uses Citizen Plus as a way to control people like mindless puppets out of their free will. Edna tries to charm her way out saying this is what he wants with a bit of her 'addition' stuff but Brown had enough, ending her argument by telling her to wait at home. She agrees while leaving angrily.

All Marty could do is see Brown wails in anguish as this is not what he wants and struggles with what he has done. Brown gives up saying what's done been done as there's no way to change it until Marty gives him Doc's old notebook which the only paper shown is the flux capacitor. Brown realize that he happens to draw it out of the logo around Hill Valley and gets an "Eureka" moment with a flash in his eyes, obviously overjoyed now that Marty gave him a way to correct his errors. Brown tells him that he would be happy to fix the DeLorean as he exits the speakeasy. Marty manages to free Einstein who happens to be cage inside until Biff woke up, pissed of remembering Marty to jump inside the trash chute and decide to take out his anger at him before going after Edna. With the help of Einstein and the equipment from the speakeasy, they manage to knock out Biff and leaves the room.

He went back to Brown's office only to be greeted by Edna. Fed up of Marty's meddling, Edna reveals she is preparing a Citizen Plus Treatment for BOTH Brown and him, to makes him obedient again before sending the guards to take Marty away.

    Episode 4 - Double Vision 

Marty soon wakes up in a cell finding himself locked up and ready to go for the Citizen Plus Treatment after Brown's complete (by forgery and Edna's false approval that Marty agrees to take it). He even overhead the guards that he was framed by Edna for turning Brown into a complete mental state that it might not bring back the leader they once know. Just then Marty hear his father's voice coming from the camera shocked that Edna locks him in while looking for Lorraine after a fight in the previous episode and stop her from taking the Citizen Plus program. He decides to help Marty to retrieve his personal stuffs in a locker which comes in handy. After that he realize that Jennifer is next room and shocked that she has already been given a Citizen Plus treatment when she acts all to weirdly nice. But by using his guitar, Marty plays rock and roll for Jen and is able to return her to her former rebellious self. The guard came to check onto her but was knocked out by him and she gives his uniform and face-hiding helmet to Marty so he can walk here undetected. She leaves Marty as he needs to rescue Brown. Marty notices Brown about to have the Citizen Plus treatment by Edna forcefully since he wasn't given a chance to speak the truth. Using his guitar, the equipment and the huge loudspeakers, he blows Edna and the guards off, saving Brown.

After escaping, both hide inside the dustbin and realize that Brown have hid the damaged DeLorean at his secret lab near Clayton Ravine (named this as a result of Clara Clayton never being saved thanks to the events of the movies never happening) before he was captured by Edna. They soon witness Marty's alt parents getting captured by the guard when George rescue Lorraine. Brown reassure that none of this would happen as he decides to get the DeLorean prepared and be back in a few minutes without Marty to fix the DeLorean since Marty's help would ends up catastrophic effects.

As soon Marty exits the bin, Edna appears and explains to him that his husband's not coming while mocking his inability to do anything without her even disbelieving Marty's 'so-called' fantasy. Just then Brown flashes in with the DeLorean, explaining that the repairs took him 6 months after using his family fortune and a shady deal with the Libyans, but that he's back in time but didn't realize the error on the timing. He even coldly rejects Edna's attempts at affection and stopping Brown from going with Marty. Surprise that Brown is following Marty, Brown wants to be called Doc, escape back to 1931 in the DeLorean while Edna swears revenge.

Unfortunately, upon arriving they discovered that they have arrived a day of the opening of Hill Valley Science Expo instead of several months earlier and young Emmett has already madly in love with Edna and nothing seems to dissuade him otherwise. Worse yet, he wants to propose her during the night upon further interrogation. To make matters worse, both are stuck in the past as Doc discovers that the DeLorean's time circuits are malfunction as it jumps to a different timeline despite the correct time coordinates and doesn't want to risk doing a time jump again worrying it may end up in a prehistoric age. He suggests to go to the more level headed part of the couple: Edna.

Marty meets up with Edna arguing at Arthur for forgetting to writing Emmett's name for the Expo. He greets Marty and tells him that Emmett (with her help) builds a Mental Alignment Meter which test everyone's personality based on the machine. Marty decides to ask her what are her likes about Emmett in order for them to break up. She tells him that his mind is a genius as the machine Emmett creates show's he is a model citizen, he doesn't woe or flirt on other girls and he's wearing her grandfather's outfit and hope he doesn't ruin it. By the time Marty wants to go to Emmett's house, Edna was about to head there until Doc decides to stall her for Marty to go there.

On a mission to break both lovebirds, he visits young Emmett under a ruse that Edna send for her. But he was shocked to find out that Emmett's planning to propose to her at night. So while Emmett's distracted on the machine, since he didn't take of the helmet that uses to show results from the machine he invented, Marty create a fake results and swipe it with Emmett's real results before Emmett place them in the box for the Expo he's going to bring. Next he tries to spill oil onto his suit but it seems that Emmett had already created a cleanser that cleans his outfit in an instant. But unfortunately the problem is that it will not work after 12 hours as using it after that hours would result his outfit being destroyed by the bacteria eating the suit like a pack of moths. So Marty steal his cleanser and place it inside the DeLorean to make the cleanser defective. Finally he seeks Trixie's help by purposely showing an increment photo of her to Edna (since she despise Trixie for her background) and gets Trixie fired by Arthur after realizing that she is a Canadian as the Expo only allows American. So with some items requested by Trixie, Marty is all prepared waiting for Emmett to show up.

Unfortunately before Marty gets to proceed with his plans, he and Doc have an argument when Doc realize what has happen to Edna in the original timeline after Marty tells him what happens to Edna. Worried she ends up old and lonely, since his affection of her wife is still intact even after talking to young Edna, Doc proposes a third option where he ask Marty to find a better way than breaking up with Edna but still go through his passion of science. Marty refuses as after what he has done to both of them and it would further mess up the time stream. Furious, Doc parts with Marty and drives off in the DeLorean. And so once Emmett arrives, he purposely spill oil onto his outfit while Emmett uses the tampered and defective cleanser on it. Edna came to correct his outfit but suddenly his tie broke and Edna in horror to see his Grandfather's suit in ruins. As planned Trixie pretends to dump him with all the fake items he has and even show the fake results that shows him to be a degenerate criminal like Kid Tannen which ultimately result Edna to break up with him and cries away. This however works too well as Emmett loses his confidences as he leaves Marty.

At night, Marty finds Emmett on the courthouse roof and assume that Emmett wants to commit suicide due to everything that has happened. But Emmett reassures him that this is where he comes when he needs his time alone. But after much persuasion, Emmett realize that this was Marty's fault to begin with since every bad thing happens to him whenever he shows up from the time he argues with his father to the time Marty makes him a 'fake hero' and the time Edna breaks up with him. Thanks to reverse psychology, Marty is able to get Emmett angry enough to reignite his love for science. At the same time a bolt of lightning shot near them and suddenly Emmett regain his passion and idea of another source of 'fuel energy' for his flying car. Unfortunately for him, the same lightning dislodges a statue next to the clock that precariously puts young Emmett's life on the line. Marty manages to saves Emmett's life before revealing his true name: Marty. After saving his life, Emmett decides to ask Marty to help him out back in his lab before the expo opens tomorrow as Marty is relieve to see Emmett's back to his old self.

Driving the DeLorean, Doc picks up a crying young Edna and instructs her to tell him everything she knows about Marty, intent on thwarting his former friend's plan.

    Episode 5 - OUTATIME 

Marty wakes up at Emmett's as he receive an answering message that Emmett instructs him to take his new static accumulator to the Science Expo but suddenly the communication cuts when he sees Edna. Without any doubts, he takes the accumulator and heads for the Science Expo. But upon arriving to the Science Expo , Marty almost got ran over by Citizen Brown driving the DeLorean. It turns out that Brown made up his mind and since science was the cause of all the problems in Hill Valley in 1986, he wants to make sure that his project fails and Edna will live happily with Brown without being involved with science. He even tries to dispose of the accumulator Marty's holding as Marty accidentally turns it on. Marty manages to turns it off, but Brown runs away.

At the expo, Marty can't find Emmett but he meets Edna and Officer Parker near Emmett's booth which was barricade by Parker. Edna then request Parker to arrest him that he's "Yakov Smirnoff" that Brown tells her about Marty. But Officer Parker talks to Marty privately that he believes that Edna is crazy but he has to obey her because ever since her artical's quite popular after Kid's arrest, he worries that she would start a full campaign on certain 'tainted police' (after being blackmailed by Edna) plus the mayor and the Chief of Police loves her article thus doesn't want to get into trouble. So Parker suggest that if Marty wants the barrier to be remove, Marty needs to find some evidence that will tarnish her reputation.

While looking for Emmett, Science Expo's bathysphere owner Jacques Douteux mentions that he saw him going to the House of Glass with a bald old man that happens to be Brown. Marty gets into the House and witnesses Young Emmett being knocked out with chloroform by Brown while dragging him out of the house realizes that Marty is following them. As Marty exits the house, he can't find Brown nor Emmett so he asks Douteux again but this Douteux answers in a very strange way. Marty realizes that Brown is under Douteux's diving suit and orders him to free Emmett. But this didn't work as Brown plays dumb and nearly get hauled away by Arthur (who happens to be the organizer of the expo). But Marty outwit him by asking Arthur to let him see the Bathysphere inside. Suspecting that young Emmett is in the Bathysphere, he crimps the bathysphere's oxygen line which causes Citizen Brown to choke knowing he too would vanish from history due to lacking of oxygen, and eventually gives in and raises the bathysphere. Arthur was shock to see Emmett inside and Marty's telling the truth about his suspicious towards the fake Douteux. But this gives time for Brown to escape from the expo while Arthur gives a chase. Emmett manage to regain conscious and realize that his booth's been barricade while furiously confronting Edna.

While trying to find some dirt on Edna, by using the recording device shaped like a flower pot from Officer Parker's booth and the phone of the future to impersonate "Carl Sagan" in the House of Future, it is revealed that Edna is the real Speakeasy arsonist and she put the blame on Doc just because Einstein tried to stop her from starting the fire. Her true intends of doing that is because no one is stopping Kid's speakeasy operation and hates the smell the booze and assume it dirty people's mind so out of moral outrage she 'did what rightful citizen would do', even fantasizing the burning flames a bit. So Marty showed the evidence to Officer Parker, which causes all three (or two if you save Emmett last) to hear Edna's confession even for Emmett to learn her 'ex-girlfriend' is the real arsonist. Edna denies it but Parker, who has enough of her behavior and the device uses in her confession comes from his own booth, he wants to arrest Edna and intends to bring her down the station to interrogate her about her whereabouts during the night of the speakeasy fire. Edna plead Emmett for help but he refuse after what she has done. Out of options, Edna creates a distraction and runs away from Parker. Emmett is relieve that since they are gone, they could remove the barricade and start showing off his prototype.

Without anymore interference, Emmett can now start his experiment until his father Judge Brown arrives, ordering him to stop this at once (hinting that it was Edna's doing when both attempts fail). He was outrage about it and wants to stop his own son of making a fool of himself. Lock between their family affairs since neither doesn't want to listen to each other, Marty becomes their peacemaker and 'mouthpiece' and sort things out. During the conversation Judge Brown realize that his son is walking a similar path as he does since his own father disapprove coming to America because they can't speak their language and foreigners to America while Emmett realize he's almost turning into his own Dad's attitude and both came to a realization of their errors. Judge Brown calms down as he speaks with his son that even he knows it turns into a disaster, he is still there to support him, ultimately manages to patch things up with his son. And so Emmett can continue the experiment and his flying car begins to work while Judge Brown jumps in joy that his son did it. Marty was glad it works out alright until he looks out through the window to see Citizen Brown getting pushed away by Edna as she steals the DeLorean.

Marty rush out to check on him as Brown sigh in depress that he thought he could change Edna but makes it worse instead. Marty tries to help but soon the timeline catches up as Brown begins to fade and tells Marty not to help. Suddenly, Edna was driving straight towards Marty when being chased by Parker's car. But at the last second, Brown pushes Marty out of the way, saving his life, at a cost of his own life. The dying Brown starts to fades from history as he asks Marty to show him his 1986 newspaper. It is revealed that Doc has been presented the key to the city of Hill Valley knowing that Marty has corrected his timeline. He smiles and disappears.

Just then young Emmett comes out of the expo after a loud crash and explosion, saying that Marty miss the show but tells him that the experiment fails as he's probably banned from the expo for the next 50 years after what he did (hinted that he crashes into the House of Glass and the car explodes while destroying the House). He then realize he could attempt the experiment again with some modification and begin to show much more passion. Just as he was going to ask Marty to follow him, he notice he seems sad. Marty tells him it is fine but Emmett realize that if there's something bothering Marty, it always something to do with him. Just then Emmett sees the 1986 newspaper but Marty refuse. Have an idea, Marty gives Emmett a folded piece of newspaper from 1986 making him promise to never look at this before given the key of the city in the future. Young Emmett is confuse at first but after much persuasion, Emmett promise. Before his final farewell, he ask Marty whether he'll be seeing him again. Marty replies with "I guarantee it." Young Emmett waves him goodbye and enters the school to meet his father.

Just then, the DeLorean arrives out of nowhere and Doc Brown (now back to his normal self) is in the car to meet up with Marty. Doc came to check after receiving the key after a long ceremony and couldn't believe that the boy who helped him in 1931 and the boy he helped in 1955 were the same person, cleverly praising him in finding way to send messages in order not to mess up the time stream. Doc was curious why he was here in the first place but Marty gives him reasons why he's here in the first place even not able to remember being in jail, he decides to drop the topic. As soon he's going to ask any other time anomaly Marty might have accidentally trigger, William McFly (Arthur's father) arrives with his vehicle to find his son. It turns out that he have brought Trixie to become a U.S. citizen and somewhat going to get married.

As he went inside the school, Marty panics as he fears the change of timeline. Doc reassures there's nothing wrong but as soon he's about to explain why, Officer Parker stops in front of Doc's DeLorean, pissed that if this is a joke to send him in a nuthouse as he seen Edna in the DeLorean vanish into thin air. Shocked about hearing it, he ask Marty if he remembers the time she jumps into but he tells him that the DeLorean is malfunction as it could jump into any timeline. Doc panics as he hopes that she ends up in the future than the past since this is Edna could alter the past which Marty agrees. Just as Parker was going to ask them for an explanation suddenly they see him vanish and they soon see themselves in a middle of a deserted location which Doc prompt that "Hill Valley has left us".

Just then William McFly stop by looking at the DeLorean. They soon ask them about the town but William only recalls from his father that there was a town here before they move in. He adds that nobody lives here except "Scary Mary". They deduces that "Scary Mary" might know something about this and decides to find her after William gives them directions fearing her. Upon arriving they find out that "Scary Mary" is actually an elderly Edna Strickland who has a rusted out DeLorean outside her porch and goes by the name 'Mary Pickford'. By gathering clues to regain the elderly Edna's memories, Doc & Marty learn that Edna ends up in 1876 and was happy to live in that era since there's no booze and debauchery and even met her grandfather. Until a newcomer by the name of Beauregard Tannen arrives and bought a land to establish a saloon. Once again no one seems to bother about it which make Edna decides to burn down his saloon on July 17, 1876. It works but unfortunately the fire spreads to the other building causing Hill Valley to vanish from existence. Thankfully she still keeps the newspaper regarding the fire and handed to Doc but she soon realize that "Yakov Smirnoff" and "Carl Sagan" (who she assume he's Emmett) set her up so she could destroy Hill Valley and plans to shoot both of them with her rifle with the DeLorean. Luckily William came back and overhear everything and rescue them while telling them to make their escape.

After escaping, they head back to 1879 where Edna was about to burn down the saloon. Marty sneak pass at the back of the saloon while Doc confronts Edna to stop before she lit it on fire. This however woke Beauregard Tannen and plans to shoot both of them for trespassing which Doc tells them that they're at a stalemate since if Edna burns it, Beauregard shoots them while if he shoots them Edna would burn the whole building down. Thanks to Marty's wits, he manages to disarm both Beauregard and Edna at the same time. Once Doc knocks out Beauregard, they realize Edna makes her escape in the defective DeLorean and make a chase. Edna panics as she was driving away from them until she sees Doc's DeLorean flying above her. Doc reassures Marty that the road in 1879 wasn't that smooth to reach 88mph so they have a chance to sync each other's DeLorean and send her back to where she came from by placing some radars onto the DeLorean's flux emitters that Citizen Brown placed.

Success, they manages to send her back to 1931, forcing her to into Hill Valley's Police Station. She was rudely awaken by Officer Parker and arrest her for arson, resisting an arrest and being an all pain in the ass. Edna says she's a time traveler since she just came back from the past but Parker think she's lying while Kid Tannen, seeing the commotion outside his jail window, thinks that she's drunk as he offers her to bunk into his cell. In the end, Edna was forcefully dragged into the Police Station by Parker while Marty and Doc, who looks from afar glad that's over. Marty then ask what are they going to do with Edna's DeLorean. Doc mentions that after they sync each others DeLorean, Edna's DeLorean grew decaying at an alarming rate and soon the timeline is catching up. As soon Doc check his watch as it's going to happen now, Edna's DeLorean disappears while Kid was shocked about what happened and tries to tell Parker inside.

Marty is glad that it is over when he remembers about Arthur and Trixie who notice them coming out of the courthouse. They greet them and decide to reveal him a secret as Trixie shows him the engagement ring. It turns out that after Trixie got fired for not being an American by Edna (and Marty for giving her the picture), they accelerate and got married so Trixie can be a U.S. citizen, much to Marty's panic. Marty retorts that she's suppose to be marrying Sylvia Miskin but Arthur says he DID as it turns out that Trixie Trotter is Sylvia Miskin's stage name. This shock and surprise Marty (even Arthur too upon realizing this as well) and regain his senses and tells them to have fun and ally them not to worry about William until he shows up behind them. Marty assumes that he's pissed about this but William changes his mind after taking a good look of Sylvia and approve their marriage while Sylvia thanks him by calling him 'dad' with a kiss. Before bidding Marty farewell, William tells Marty not to poke his noses on the McFly family, Arthur shake hands with Marty saying it is a pleasure working with him and Sylvia kiss him on the cheek saying she sees him in the funny paper. Once they leave, Doc knew about Trixie's real identity while joking that he already taken some pictures of her.

Returning to 1986, Marty is shock that they arrive a day after his items are being sold by the estate sale and ask him to stop them from selling his house. But Doc tells him that he's just having a garage sale as he, Clara and their two kids are using their home part time in 1986. George came to greet both of them and ask Marty if he already finds what he's been looking for. Marty nods as he goes back into Doc's garage sale after finding something interesting. It turns out that after bonding back with his father, his life is a bit better while all Marty could do is laugh to himself. Just then Doc remembers something and gives Marty a book titled "The McFlys of Hill Valley" after finishing the research about his family tree. Most of his research has been done 'traditionally' but the only problem in the family tree book was Marty's grandmother Sylvia. Doc never knew she sang in a speakeasy under a stage name, which was the whole reason he went to 1931 in the first place. It was a way of saying thank you to Marty for being the person who saves him from making the worst mistake of his life.

Suddenly, and elderly Edna appears to greet both of them with a different and kinder personality with Einstein. They were surprised to see her liking dogs and more shocked to discover that she is married to Kid Tannen and calling Biff her 'stepson'. George comments that they make a lovely couple and who couldn't believe they make out in jail. It is hinted that after Kid discover the 'disappearing' DeLorean, he and Edna were bunk into one cell and mend their relationship towards each other and fallen in love (probably believing Edna's word but no one would believe their story after what happen). In addition Kid didn't escape, both get married and have become much kinder and happier than their original counterparts. Marty just stares at Doc while he tells Marty not to say it and hopefully no other surprise happens and they decide to move on and both head to the lab.

Suddently three DeLoreans appear with three different Future Martys, each of them asking for Doc's help to fix their respective futures. Confuse Marty ask Doc who's the original one in which Doc points out it's the one he's talking to now. While the Future Martys start squabbling, the original Marty and Doc ignore them and get into the Delorean while Doc says "The Future can wait, we have a present to catch up with." Doc & Marty start flying the Delorean while Marty asks the question, "Where to Doc ?" and Doc answers with: "Mr McFly, thrill me !" They both depart to an unknown time and place.
