Why does the old Doc in the tape say Twin Pines Mall? Is there a ripple effect for that too?
Report spam or abuse
Because marty and the tape comes from the future where the pines are two :) so marty will remember there are two pines and it will still be on the tape too.

Take a look at this video on YouTube: One Point Twenty One Jigga Watts translate American English to British English One Point Twenty One Gigga Whats Anti Dark Energy Technology Right? To go back in time
Report spam or abuse
No it doesn't. A gigawatt is 1 billion watts. Like a gigabyte (quite a bit more than a billion but quite close so it's rounded.)

Cute when Doc was talking to the picture of Edison. Edison was only responsible for D.C. current. Where's Tesla's picture?
Report spam or abuse
Well why Humans celebarte Alan Turing and not Konrad Zuse for the invention of the Computer?????(because he was gay and Zuse was "bad bad bad German")in the case of Edison because he was yankee and Tesla a european.
Report spam or abuse
Historic Accuracy. Edison, at the time this scene is meant to take place, was still being given credit for nearly every technological advancement that we should have been thanking Tesla for. Doc Brown can't be held responsible for not knowing how important Tesla actually was, considering the time period in which this scene takes place and how the media from the past decade (then) spun the stories, which the education system blindly followed.

Why does Doc Brown pronounce it as "jig" instead of "gig"?
Report spam or abuse
Let this trilogy serve as testimony that yanks don't understand the English language or SI units. Case in point for any butthurt burger munchers: Since you use imperial and have somehow made a metric ton equal to an imperial ton, what is a stone?

Teaching people how to mispronounce "gigawatt" for nearly thirty years.
Report spam or abuse
+Nozyspy Well, "gee" really is a word in the Engish language, that's pronounced with the "J" sound.  I never noticed it though until I was in a class with another kid whose name was spelled "Guy", but pronounced "gee" where the G was pronounced like the "G" in "Guy", but the "uy" was pronounced like the e's in "Jee".  I had to make him a phonetic name tag this one time when a reporter had to go down a line of kids and pronounce all their names on the fly on live television, and I had no way to write his phonetically, so of course the reporter got his name totally wrong when he got to him lol.  Everyone else's could be written phonetically though so there were no other screw-ups.  :)

+gobo760 Ahh I see, yeah I take your point there. His name may be the French pronunciation of Guy.

I love this scene but I just found a very minor plot hole. How could Marty and Doc manage to hook up an 80's camera to a T.V. From 1955...
Report spam or abuse
I'm going to take a guess that you're not old enough to remember when cable came out and have never had to do that.

+TheDullahan He may not be some kid  Hell I grew up in the 80s and even BACK THEN I wondered if it was possible to hook up an 80s camcorder to a 1950s TV set.

So... What the hell is "Gigawatt"?

A Gigawatt is 1 billion watts of electricity. So he needed 1,210,000,000 watts.

And yet...plenty of people have done just that. Is it PRACTICAL? No. But Possible? Yes.

IMHO the 2nd greatest comedy film of all time!! The ONLY one I'd rank ahead of it--(and by the slimmest of margins)--is "Animal House." The casting of this movie is dead-on perfect--ESPECIALLY Christoper Lloyd as Doc Brown!! The whole concept and storyline of this movie is creative genius!!

1.21 times 10 to the power of 0. Most mainstream use of the decimal point. ; )

So 1.21 watts, then? I think what you meant was: 1.21 x 10^9 W. Sorry, I know that you just accidentally missed the 9 key on your keyboard, but I kinda have OCD when it comes to math.

I like how when he says "To the future!" he points and looks at the audience for a moment, because anybody watching the movie would have to be watching it forward in time from when he said/filmed it.

They should re-release this film in 3D! It would be worth it just for that moment when Doc Brown says "We're sending you back...TO THE FUTURE!!" and points right at the viewer!

1:18 - My favourite part! Marty: "All we need is a plutonium." Doc: "G'oh, I'm sure that in 1985, plutonium is available in every corner drug store, but in 1955, it's a little hard to come by!"

I was at a pier  While we were at the southern border, our neighbors were learning their abc's and 1,2,3's while operating larger vessels alongside, they were gambling who didn't and did get to use the junction box on shore powered sources, from one of those plug in power bars, next thing I knew shazzzam!   I think some of them mistaked me for a Genie in a Lamp too.
