We open on the many clocks in the garage laboratory of Doctor "Doc" Emmet Brown where his confidant Marty McFly comes in to check on Doc and his dog Einstein and as Doc's Rube Goldberg machine points out he's been gone for at least a week, most likely involving that case of stolen Plutonium he has squirreled away under his bed but that's just me. After Marty nearly shatters his eardrums using Doc's gigantic amplifier he gets a call from Doc telling him to meet him at the Twin Pines mall that night around 1:00. All the clocks then go off as Doc is excited that his experiment worked, he set all the clocks to go off precisely 25 minutes late, so it isn't 8:00 it's 8:25 and that means Marty's late for school. Which begs the question, did Marty know what time it was when he left his home, I mean all he had to do was look at the freaking clock and he would have at least had an idea that the clocks at Doc's lab were off, or did he spend more time at Doc's place then we're shown? Does he even have a watch or something I mean come on!
So Marty makes it to school and despite help from his girlfriend Jennifer he still gets caught by the school's disciplinarian Mr Strickland who to add insult to injury tells Marty that he shouldn't even bother entering the Battle of the Bands contest since he's too much like his old man and that no McFly has amounted to anything in the history of Hill Valley, the American educational system ladies and gentleman! Try to be someone with their own aspirations, fuck you you stupid Slifer slacker! Marty replies that history's about to change, oh dude like you wouldn't believe! At the contest he and his band, The Pinheads play and well, the judges think they're just too darn loud and get the boot. But eh those guys wouldn't know good music if Weird Al was right in front of them so let me get some of my own judges to give their two cents.
|Oh my god she's eating one of the stagehands.... again; somebody get the stun gun!!!|
As Marty heads home he finds the last thing he needed, the family's car wrecked and his dad George's boss Biff Tannen telling him that because he was driving the car and wrecked it George's insurance should cover it. Now if I were in George's shoes; since Biff clearly admitted he was drinking while driving the car I'd threaten to take him to court for not only the damage to my car but also slander for lying that the car had a blind-spot and sue him for not only damages but for anything else me and my legal team could squeeze out of him. But of course since George is a complete whenis he folds like a cheap suit and acquiesces to all of Biffs demands including filling out all of Biffs reports before his deadline so he can have them retyped. After Biff leaves Marty is quite surprised George is able to stand up since he clearly doesn't have a spine! George just says that Biff is his supervisor and just isn't good with confrontations, Duke if you don't mind?
Inside they find Einstein and his clock is precisely one minute behind Doc's showing that the trip was instantaneous. Now for a rundown of how it works, first you pull the lever near the stick to turn on the Time Circuits, the red readout tells you where you're going, the green one tells you when you are and the yellow one tells you where you've been and all you have to do is input the destination time on the dial pad next to the readout. Like for example 07041776 for the signing of the Declaration of Independence, 12250000 to see the birth of Christ, or a very personal date for Doc 11051955. Why is it so personal, that was the day he invented time travel, he was standing on the edge of his toilet hanging his clock when he slipped, fell and banged his head on the edge of the sink and when he came to he had a vision in his head and drew this.

Doc almost forgot to bring extra Plutonium but just as Doc is about to pack the Plutonium the Libyans he screwed over find him and gun him down. They nearly kill Marty but their gun jams giving Marty time to get in the DeLorean and try to get away. While the chase is going on Marty accidentally activates the Time Circuits and when he reaches 88 mph he gets sent back to November 5th 1955 since Doc didn't change the destination coordinates and Marty crashes into a barn.
Actually Homer, you're the third. Come back next time where we see Marty's reactions to his new surroundings and the wacky shenanigans that await.
