    George McFly: Now, Biff, don't con me.

    Biff Tannen: [stammering] I'm sorry, Mr. McFly. I-I meant I was just starting on the second coat.

    George McFly: Biff. What a character. Always trying to get away with something. I've had to stay on top of Biff ever since high school. Although, if it wasn't for him...

    George McFly: Of course not, Biff. Now, I wouldn't want that to happen. Now, look. I'll, uh, finish those reports on up tonight, and I'll run 'em on over first thing tomorrow, all right?
