\u201cPhysicists propose that two alternate histories, two equally valid realities, could exist side by side: the one you know,
and the one in which you don\u2019t exist. Time itself may have many potential dimensions, despite the fact that we are
condemned to experience only one of them.\u201d
\u201cHey, kids, what time is it?\u201d

The video pirate operating this equipment is MARTY McFLY, 17, a good looking kid who has an air of confidence just shy of cockiness. He\u2019s wearing a silver Porsche jacket, and like most typical modern day kids, not a stitch of his clothing is without some brand name or form of advertising. He\u2019s looking at an ad for a guitar amp in ROLLING STONE.
packs up his cassettes with his school books and takes us into ANOTHER PART OF THE LABORATORY. The lab is
a huge room, and workbenches are all over, covered with chemical and electronic equipment. The place is old and
dusty and has the air of a mad scientist lab of the 50\u2019s.
Professor Brown! It's almost 8:30---I'm outta here!
PROFESSOR EMMETT BROWN, late 60\u2019s, is tinkering with a device that looks like a Solar Cell, positioning it
incandescent bulb on the panel glows dimly, and the meter needles move slightly.
Blast it!! 24 measly volts!
He throws an Erlenmeyer Flask across the room---it shatters against the wall.
(points to the sun)
The power of a million hydrogen bombs...
(points to his experiment)
...and we get 24 measly volts. It's not fair! I've been working on this Power Converter since 1949, and you'd think in
run house---we could be sellin' new movies on the street before they're even in the theater.
A 35mm film chain...I'll see what I can do....
The Professor ponders his Power Converter.
Marty is on his way out. He pauses at a door with 5 locks on it and tries it. Of course it doesn\u2019t open.
One of these days you're gonna leave this door open and I'll find out what's in there.
Did you ever consider that some doors are locked for a reason?
Nope. The way I figure it, doors are made to be opened. See you after school.
Oh---Marty---what time did you say it was?
A.M. or P.M.?
Pro, the sun's out!
Oh, right, right.
Jeez, for a guy with a ton of clocks, you sure don't pay much attention to time.
Indeed there are a number of clocks all over the lab.
On the contrary. I may not pay much attention to the measurement of time, but I'm very aware of Time itself.
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
