Special Sub-Topic: "Back to the Future" Tidbits
|In the beginning of the movie, what is the brand name of the dog food that Doc's mechanical device pours into Einstein's bowl?|
Kal Kan. You can see the label clearly as the mechanical arm pours the dog food and disposes of the can.
|What color guitar does Marty plug into Doc's audio equipment?|
yellow. Marty plugs in this petite guitar and turns all of the audio equipment up as high as they will go. It only takes one strum of the guitar pick to blow the speakers up entirely!
|When Marty "hitches a ride to school" while on his skateboard, what kind of hat is the man driving the Jeep wearing?|
Mountain Dew. It was a bright green and white Mountain Dew baseball-type hat. You can see this as the man driving the Jeep turns around to look at Marty.
|When Marty and his band audition for the school dance, who is the actor/musician with the megaphone who says "you're just too darn loud?"|
Huey Lewis & Lewis. I NEVER noticed this before in the dozens of times I have seen this film. Someone else pointed it out to me. Huey is a bit difficult to recognize as he is dressed as an uptight high school principal.
|What is the last name of Marty's girlfriend, Jennifer?|
Parker. "Marty, I'm not your answering service or anything, but Jennifer Parker called twice while you were outside pouting over the car." Marty's sister delivers this line at the dinner table in 1985.
|What kind of alcholic beverage is Marty's mom seen pouring into a glass in 1985?|
vodka. The vodka label is clearly seen as Marty's mom pours herself a drink while reminiscing about how she met George.
|During the mall parking lot scene, Doc Brown has a large truck that says what on the side?|
24 Hour Scientific Services. The writing on the side of the van is seen during the mall parking lot scene.
|When Marty dresses up as a man from space in a radiation suit (when he visits George at night), what can be seen tucked into his belt?|
hair dryer. This is also something I only recently noticed. While Marty is standing over George, identifying himself as "Darth Vader", you can see the hair dryer in his belt.
|What was the name of the farmer whose barn Marty crashes into with the time machine?|
Peabody. The name is shown on the mailbox before old man Peabody accidentally shoots it.
|What kind of cereal is Marty's father eating in the cafe in 1955?|
Rice Krispies. You can see the box while he is pouring the cereal into a bowl.
|What kind of uniform is Marty's brother wearing at the dinner table in 1985?|
Burger King. It is a very old Burger King uniform, of course, looking nothing like the ones we see on BK employees now.
|What is the actual date on which Marty goes back in time (NOT the destination date)?|
October 26th, 1985. Marty leaves 1985 on October 26th. He arrives in 1955 on November 5th.
|What color van do the Lybians drive?|
blue and white. It was blue on top and white on the bottom.
|What does Lorraine's mother serve to Marty for dinner in 1955?|
meatloaf. "Well Marty I hope you like meatloaf." Yum!
|What does the license plate on the Delorean say?|
OUTATIME. The OUTATIME license plate is seen several times during the movie, especially when Marty tries to pick it up off the pavement in the mall parking lot scene.
