Marty: What, I don't get what happened.

Doc: That was the day I invented time travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the edge of the sink. And when I came to, I had a revelation, a picture, a picture in my head, a picture of this.

Doc shows Marty the "this".

Doc: This is what makes time travel possible. The flux capacitor.

Marty: The flux capacitor.

Doc: It's taken me almost 30 years and my entire family fortune to realise the vision of that day. My God, has it been that long? Things have certainly changed around here.

Marty: This is uh, this is heavy duty, Doc, this is great. Uh, does it run on regular unleaded gasoline?
