    Biff Tannen: I'm just finishing up the second coat now.

    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...

    Lorraine Baines: We never would have fallen in love.

    George McFly: That's right.

  • Lorraine Baines: I think we need a rematch.

    George McFly: Oh, a rematch. Why? Were you cheating?

    Lorraine Baines: No. Good morning

    George McFly: Hello.

    [Marty collapses onto the floor]

  • Biff Tannen: Hold on one second. Let's get this straight. Marty is *your* kid, not mine. And all the money in the world wouldn't do jack shit for that lazy bum!

    Lorraine Baines: Stop it, Biff, just stop it!

    Biff Tannen: Look at him. He's a butthead just like his old man was.

    Lorraine Baines: Don't you dare speak that way about George! You're not even half the man he was.

    [Biff throws her on the floor]

  • Lorraine Baines: Dammit Biff, that's it. I'm leaving!

    Biff Tannen: Oh, so go ahead. But think about this Lorraine, who's gonna pay for all your clothes, huh? And your jewelry, and your liquor? Who's gonna pay for your cosmetic surgery Lorraine?

    Lorraine Baines: You were the one who wanted me to get these-these things! If you want 'em back, you can have em.

    Biff Tannen: Look, Lorraine, you walk out that door and I won't only cut off you, I'll cut off your kids.

    Lorraine Baines: You wouldn't!

    Biff Tannen: Oh, wouldn't I? First, your daughter Linda, I'll cancel all her credit cards. She can settle her debts with the bank all by herself. Your idiot son Dave? I'll get his probation revoked. And as for Marty, well maybe you'd like to have all three of your kids behind bars just like your brother Joey. One big happy jailbird family.

    Lorraine Baines: Alright Biff, you win. I'll stay.

    Biff Tannen: [to Marty] As for you, I'll be back up here in an hour, so you better not be!

  • Lorraine Baines: Biff, somebody already asked me to the dance.

  • Lorraine Baines: Biff Tannen, I wouldn't be your girl even if - even if you had a million dollars.

  • Lorraine Baines: [frowns at a stuttering Marty] Are you all right?

    Marty McFly: [stares at his mother's obviously enlarged breasts] I'm fine, I'm fine. It's just that you're so... you're so... big.

  • Marty McFly: I had a horrible nightmare. It was terrible.

    Lorraine Baines: Well, you're safe and sound now. Back on the good old 27th floor.

    Marty McFly: 27th floor?

  • Biff Tannen: You're supposed to be in Switzerland, you little son of a bitch!

    Marty McFly: My father?

    Biff Tannen: Did you get kicked out of another boarding school? Damn it, Lorraine, do you know how much perfectly good dough I blow on this no-good kid of yours, huh? On all three of them!

    Lorraine Baines: What the hell do you care? We can afford it! The least we can do with all that money is provide a better life for our children!
