|Once Stan goes back to the 1970's, who does he set out to kill?|
Jane Fonda. Stan blames Fonda for ruining Christmas as he feels that she brought back the "dying hippie" era. He claims that since hippies ended up becoming liberals, modern liberalism is her fault.
|After closer inspection at a restaurant, who does Stan find out is the true culprit behind ruining Christmas?|
Donald Sutherland. Stan is led to believe that Sutherland was in fact the one he needed to kill as Sutherland convinced Fonda to join politics. Sutherland, however, was merely trying to flirt with her.
|Who does Stan meet in the toilet in the 1970's?|
Martin Scorsese. This proved to a mistake as Stan tried and succeeded to get Scorsese off of drugs. This, through a chain of events, led to the downfall of the United States in the future, causing it to be controlled by Communist Russia.

To go back to the 1970's and create 'Taxi Driver'. After Stan got Scorsese off of drugs, Scorsese was never inspired to make the movie 'Taxi Driver'. Due to this slight mishap, through a string of events, Ronald Reagan lost the election to Walter Mondale who surrendered the United States to Russia.

|According to Roger, what year did he crash land on earth?|
1947. Roger reveals that he was the supposed alien who landed in Roswell in 1947.
|Who is Stan forced to shoot to save the future?|
Ronald Regan. Because John Hinckley Jr. never saw 'Taxi Driver', he was never obsessed with Jodie Foster and therefore never tried killing Regan. This ultimately led to the downfall of the United States. Stan therefore, had to take Hinckley's place and attempt to wound Reagan.
