October 26, 1985
1:24 AM PST

Marty had accidently bumped into the Assemblies of Christ church upon their return to 1985. As they stopped by the Bank of America, Marty opened the doors, and he stepped out. He immediately saw Red, the homeless bum.

'Wow, ah, Red,' breathed Marty, 'you look great. Everything looks great.'

Marty then looked at the Bank of America clock, and he saw the time.

'1:24,' breathed Marty. 'We still got time.'

Marty then stepped back into the car, and he tried to start it. It didn't start, however.

'Oh, my, God,' moaned Marty. 'No, no, not again. C'mon, c'mon. Hey.'

Marty then saw the Libyans' van driving past.

'Libyans!' gasped Marty. 'C'mon, Jennifer, we have to make sure that the Doc is okay. I hope he remembered my warning.'

Marty then saw the Libyans' van turn and pass the Texaco station, before leaving the Square. Marty and Jennifer chased after them.


As Marty and Jennifer ran into the mall, Marty noticed that the mall was now called now called Lone Pine Mall - perhaps because Marty knocked down one of the pines in 1955 - at 1:33. Marty watched on, stunned, as he saw Doc get shot and fall forward. Marty then watched his past self and past Jennifer. Marty and Jennifer crouched down so, so that their past selves couldn't see them.

'No! Bastards!' yelled out the slightly younger Marty.

The Libyans had spotted the younger version of Marty and Jennifer, and aim for them. The younger Marty turned away, thinking it was the end. However, the Libyan's gun became jammed, which gave the younger versions of Marty and Jennifer enough time to get into the DeLorean - with the camera - and close the door. He drove off.

'Go!' Marty heard one of the Libyans shout.

Marty watched his past self drive off in the DeLorean. He then watched the DeLorean leave 1985 and the Libyans crash into a photo booth. Once it was safe, he rolls down the embankment towards Doc, who was lying there.

'Doc, Doc!' Marty called up, as he ran up to flip Doc's body over. When Doc wasn't responding, Marty turned his head away and began to cry. 'Oh, no!' sobbed Marty. Jennifer had place a comforting arm around Marty's shoulder, as Marty wept brokenly.

Then after awhile. Jennifer saw Doc open his eyes, as he came to.

'Marty!' Jennifer whispered. 'He's alive!'

'Really?' asked Marty, as he choked back a sob. 'But ho-how?'

Doc ripped open his radiation suit, to reveal that he had a bullet proof vest on.

'I was so worried you might forget,' Marty said, as he wiped his eyes. 'That's why we came back a little early.

'Oh, believe me,' Doc said, smiling slightly, 'not a day went by when I didn't think about this incident. I guess I wasn't counting on being knocked unconscious, though.'

'Well, you did give me a big scare, Doc,' Marty said, slowly, 'but I guess it's not something you could help. Well, at any rate, it sure feels good to be back in the year 1985.'

'Yeah, except,' Jennifer said, quietly, 'this mall is now called Lone Pine Mall. It was called Twin Pines Mall, before we left.'

'I think it was because I knocked over one of Mr. Peabody's pines,' Marty said, a bit sheepishly. 'He was trying to shoot at us, and we were in a hurry to get out.'

'Great Scott!' gasped Marty. 'I wonder if anything else has changed. So, where did you park the DeLorean?'

'Oh, we left it at the Bank of America,' explained Marty. 'I think you need to fix the DeLorean a bit. I've been having lots of problems with the starter.'

'Well, I guess I'll look into that, then,' Doc said, sighing. 'I suppose we'd better get out of here.'

'Yeah, right, we should,' agreed Marty. 'Yeah, let's go.'

Doc and Jennifer then followed Marty to where he parked the DeLorean.


'So, Doc,' Marty asked, 'was it tough waiting for 30 years before you could discuss any of this with us? I can imagine that you've had the tough end of the deal.'

'Wow! It was sure a bit cramped in here,' remarked Marty. 'I guess this thing was only designed to seat two people. So, Doc, you're going to the future, now?'

'Precisely!' replied Doc. 'This is the moment I've been waiting for.'

'About how far ahead are you going?' asked Marty.

'About 30 years,' replied Doc, 'it's a nice round number.'

'Look me up when you get there,' suggested Marty, 'guess I'll be about 47.'

'I will,' promised Doc.

'Take care,' said Marty.

'You too,' replied Doc.

'All right, good bye, Einie,' Said Marty. Then, with a little smile, he added, 'Oh, watch that re-entry, it's a little bumpy.'

'You bet,' replied Doc, smiling back.

Doc then reversed and he travelled down the street. The three sonic booms were heard - then Marty knew that Doc had gone into the future. Marty then climbed over his gate and he went back into his house.


Marty was in bed sleeping. Suddenly, the radio alarm clock came on, playing Back In Time by Huey Lewis and The News.

'So take me away... I don't mind...' warbled Huey's voice, on the radio. 'But you better promise me... I'll be back in time... Gotta get back in time...'

'What a nightmare!' Marty whispered, as he was stretching.

As Marty was heading to the kitchen, he caught a glimpse that somehow something was different about the living room. Marty glanced at the living room again. All the furniture was different. It was newer and much better looking than the furniture that used to be there. Marty then walked into the kitchen, where his siblings were having breakfast. Dave was now wearing a suit, and Linda looked much more attractive than she had before.

'Oh, if Paul calls me - tell him I'm working at the boutique late tonight,' Linda was telling Dave.

With a note of irritation, Dave said, 'Linda, first of all, I'm not your answering service. Second of all, somebody named Greg or Craig called you just a little while ago.'

'Now which one was it, Greg or Craig?' Linda asked, with some frustration.

'I don't know, I can't keep up with all of your boyfriends,' groused Dave, obviously annoyed.

With a note of surprise, Marty exclaimed, 'What the hell is this?'

'Breakfast,' Linda replied, with a hint of sarcasm.

'What, did you sleep in your clothes again last night?' ribbed Dave.

'Yeah, yeah, what are you wearing, Dave?' Marty asked, rather defensively.

'Marty, I always wear a suit to the office,' Dave replied, giving Marty a strange look. 'You all right?'

'Yeah,' mumbled Marty.

Then Marty saw his parents enter. He glanced at his parents. Both of them were looking much better than before. George now had grey hair in a stylish hairstyle - while Lorraine, looked much thinner than before.

'I think we need a rematch,' Lorraine was saying.

'Oh, oh, a rematch?' asked George. 'Why, were you cheating?'

'No,' protested Lorraine.

'Hello,' called out George.

'Good morning,' added Lorraine.

'Mom, Dad!' gasped Marty, as he fell to the ground - then he got up a few seconds later.

'Marty, are you all right?' Lorraine asked, concerned.

'Did you hurt your head?' asked Dave.

'You guys look great!' exclaimed Marty. 'Mom, you look so thin!'

'Why, thank you, Marty,' replied Lorraine.

George playfully pinched Lorraine on her bottom.

'George!' Lorraine exclaimed, playfully. Then she turned to Marty and, before kissing him, said, 'Good morning, sleepyhead! Good morning, Dave, Linda!'

'Good morning, Mom,' Dave replied.

'Good morning, Mom,' Linda repeated. Then, turning to Marty, she added, 'Oh, Marty, I almost forgot, Jennifer Parker called.'

'Oh, I sure like her, Marty - she is such a sweet girl,' gushed Lorraine. 'Isn't tonight the night of the big date?'

Marty, still a little dazed, asked, 'What, what, ma?'

'Well, aren't you going up to the lake tonight?', Lorraine asked, confused. 'You've been planning it for two weeks.'

'Well, ma, we talked about this,' protested Marty. 'We're not gonna go to the lake - the car's wrecked.'

'Wrecked?' George asked, confused.

'Wrecked?' Dave exclaimed. 'When did this happen, and...'

'Quiet down - I'm sure the car is fine,' assured George.

'Why am I always the last one to know about these things?' groused Dave.

George then opened the door to the garage. Biff was there, wearing a track suit and waxing the McFly's car. There was also a truck with the words 'Biff's Auto Dealing' printed on it.

'See, there's Biff out there, waxing it right now,' remarked George. Then he turned to Biff, and added, 'Now, Biff, I wanna make sure that we get two coats of wax this time, not just one.'

'Just finishing up the second coat now,' Biff replied.

'Now, Biff, don't con me,' George insisted, firmly.

'I'm, I'm sorry, Mr. McFly,' stammered Biff. 'I mean, I was just starting on the second coat.'

George then closed the door and muttered, 'That Biff, what a character. Always trying to get away with something. Been on top of Biff ever since high school. Although, if it wasn't for him...'

George sat down, and Lorraine sat on her lap.

'... we never would have fallen in love,' finished Lorraine.

'That's right,' agreed George.

'Mr. McFly, Mr. McFly, this just arrived!' called out Biff, carrying a package. Then, seeing Marty, he added, 'Oh, hi, Marty!' Then to George, Biff said, 'I think it's your new book!'

After the box was open, everyone saw that it was a book entitled A Match Made In Space, and the author listed was George McFly. On the cover were two teens, who looked a bit like young George and Lorraine - and a spaceman who looked like Marty with his radiation suit on.

'Oh, honey, your first novel,' Lorraine gushed.

'Like I always told you, if you put your mind to it - you could accomplish anything,' replied George.

'Oh, oh, Marty, here's your keys,' stammered Biff, handing Marty a set of keys. 'You're all waxed up - ready for tonight.'

'Keys?' asked Marty, stunned. Marty could hardly believe it. Everyone in his family was much happier. Biff was not pushing Marty's father around, and his father had just published his first novel.


Later on, Marty went out to admire his new truck. It was the 4x4 Toyota truck that he admired on the day before he went back in time. Marty stepped in, and he drove over to Jennifer's house. He then walked up to Jennifer's home, and rang the doorbell.

'Marty!' Jennifer gasped, as she opened the door.

'Jennifer!' called out Marty. 'so how is everything? Have you noticed any changes in your family?'

'Uh, no, I haven't,' replied Jennifer. 'Everything seems the same to me. What about you?'

'Oh, a lot has changed in my life,' replied Marty. 'My parents and siblings are more confident, now. Biff now works for our family, and he's actually respectful towards us. Although, he has tried to cheat my father out of putting a second coat of wax on the car. Heck, a lot of the furniture in our house is new.'

'Wow!' gasped Jennifer. 'It looks like your family has changed drastically. I guess it's because we ran into your parents when they were young. We never ran into mine.'

Marty and Jennifer were then about to kiss, when they heard three sonic booms. They looked up to see the DeLorean on the driveway. It had knocked over a few trash cans. Doc then got out, wearing futuristic clothing.

'Marty! Jennifer! You've gotta come back with me!' Doc called out, somewhat frantically.

'Where?' Marty and Jennifer asked, simultaneously.

'Back to the future,' Doc replied.
