Marty successfully sets up his parents and saves his future. Marty's dad triumphs over Biff and becomes popular. Doc is able to return Marty to the future using the lightning that hits the clock tower. At Twin Pines Mall, Doc wears a bulletproof vest to protect himself from the Libyans. In the present day, Marty's dad is a famous writer and Biff works for him, waxing his car. Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer are reuniting when Doc arrives in the time machine. He tells them that they must go 30 years into the future. The car flies up into the air and off into the future. To be continued...

Continuity mistake: When Biff and his goon friends are in Biff's car, as they chase Marty on his borrowed 'skateboard', the car's rearview mirror repeatedly disappears and reappears, and the side mirror changes from round to square repeatedly. (01:06:50)

Question: What does the saying "Why don't you make like a tree, and get out of here", mean?

Answer: It's a way of saying "scram" or "get lost." But Biff is so dim, he doesn't realize he's saying it wrong; the expression is "make like a tree and leaf", with the joke being that "leaf" is meant to sound like "leave."
