Graffiti on the wall of the Hill Valley High School includes a spray painted "BOB" which is a reference to Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale.
Huey Lewis: That's the Power of Love, can you feel it...

Marty: Yo, Jennifer.

Jennifer: Marty, don't go this way. Strickland's looking for you. If you get caught it'll be four tarties in a row. Okay, Come on, I think we're safe.

Marty: You know this time it wasn't my fault. The Doc set all his clock 25 minutes slow..


Strickland: The Doc? Am I to understand you're still hanging around with Dr. Emmett Brown, McFly?

["Tsk Tsk"ing]

Strickland: Tardy slip for you, Miss Parker. And one for you McFly, I believe that makes for in a row. Now, let me give you a nickel's worth of free advice, young man. This so-called Dr. Brown is dangerous. He's a real nutcase. You hang around with him, you're going to end up in big trouble.

Marty: Oh, Yes Sir.


Strickland: You've got a real attitude problem, McFly. You're a slakcer. You remind me of your father when he went here. He was a slacker too.

Marty: Can I go now, Mr. Strickland?

Strickland: I notics your band is on the roster for the dance auditions after school today. Why even bother, McFly? You don't have a chance. You're too much like your old man. No McFly ever amounted to anything in the history of Hill Valley.

Marty: Yeah, well, history is gonna change.


The band judge for the audition is Huey Lewis, he is the guy who wrote with the help of his band the songs for the movie "The Power Of Love" and "Back in Time".

Audition Judge: Next, Please.

Marty: All right.

[Microphone feedback]

Marty: We're uh -- We're the Pinheads. One, Two, Three.


The Song that the Pinheads perform is the feature song of the movie "The Power of Love".

Audition Judge: Okay, Thank You. Thank You, thank you fellas. Hold it, hold it fellas. I'm afraid you're just too darn loud. Next please, could we have the next group please.


Some people believe that the voice on the loudspeaker of the "Re-Elect Goldie Wilson" Van is that of the late Phil Hartman.

Man on Loudspeaker: Re-Elect Mayor Goldie Wilson. Progress is his middle name. Mayor Goldie Wilsons progress platform--

Marty: Too loud, I can't believe it. I'm never gonna get a chance to play in front of anybody.

Jennifer: Marty, one rejection isn't the end of the world.

Marty: Nah, I just don't think I'm cut out for music.

Jennifer: But you're good Marty, really good, and this audition tape of yours is great, you've gotta send it in to the record company. It's like Doc's always saying--

Marty: Yah, I know, I know, if you put your mind to it your can accomplish anything..

Jennifer: That's good advice Marty.

Marty: All right, okay Jennifer, what if I send in the tape and they don't like it? I mean what if they say I'm no good? What if they say get outta here kid, you got no future? I mean, I just dont think I can take that kind of rejection. Jesus, I'm starting to sound like my old man.

Jennifer: Come on, he's not that bad. At least he's letting you borrow the car tomorrow night.


Marty: Check out that 4x4. That is hot.

Car Dealer: OK, back her up.

Marty: Someday, Jennifer, someday. Wouldn't it be great to take that truck up to
the lake? Throw a couple of sleeping bags in the back. Lie out underneath the stars.

Jennifer: Stop it.

Marty: What?

Jennifer: Does your mom know about tomorrow night?

Marty: No, get out of town, my mom thinks I'm going camping with the guys. (off
Jennifer's look) Well, Jennifer, my mother would freak out if she knew I was
going up there with you. And I get this standard lecture about how she never did
that kind of stuff when she was a kid. I mean look, I think the woman was born a nun.

Jennifer: She's just trying to keep you respectable.

Marty: Well, she's not doing a very good job.

Jennifer: Terrible


Woman: Save the clock tower! Mayor Wilson is sponsoring an initiative to replace
that clock. 30 years ago, lightning struck that clock tower and the clock hasn't
run since. We at the Hill Valley Preservation Society think it should be
preserved exactly the way it is as part of our history and heritage.

Marty: There you go lady. Here's a quarter.

Woman: Thank you, don't forget to take a flyer.

Marty: Right.

Woman: Save the clock tower!!!

Marty: Where were we?

Jennifer: Right about here.

Jennifer's Dad: Jennifer!

Jennifer: It's my dad.

Marty: Right.

Jennifer: I've gotta go.

Marty: I'll call you tonight.

Jennifer: I'll be at my Grandma's. Here, let me give you the number.


Jennifer: Bye.

Huey Lewis: That's the power of love, that's the power of love...
