Added DiffLines:

** The fact that Doc went through the trouble of taping together Marty's letter, and kept it in his possession for all of thirty years (As evidenced by it now being brown and crinkled) is strangely moving, showing that in spite of his earlier objections just how much trust the Doc of the past had in his friend of the future, and decided that that was more than enough to overcome any doubts he had about the risk Marty had taken to save him.

** Meta-example: the return of Claudia Wells as Jennifer Parker.

Since then, she has become a regular working actress once more.


*** After helping young Emmett to achieve his Hill Valley Expo Demonstration to give him back his dreams of becoming a scientist, Young Emmett asks for an explanation about who Marty is.

*** The series-long arc is this. In episode 2, Marty notices an attraction between Artie and Trixie and while he's happy his grandfather is "sowing his oats", he hopes they don't get attached, because eventually Artie needs to father George with Marty's grandmother Sylvia. By episode 5, he's in full-blown panic that things are getting serious between Artie and Trixie, and when he hears they got married, he confronts them, believing the timeline is wrong and he's about to fade out from existence at any moment. But when he blurts out to them that Artie is supposed to marry a "Sylvia Miskin", Trixie says her name ''is'' Sylvia Miskin, showing that this was the "right" outcome all along, especially considering Marty's advice to Artie early in the series regarding meeting a "Sylvia" was to "let nature take its course". They were meant to end up together.
