Though Doc asked Marty not to come back for him, Marty does go back anyway, because he and the 1955-Doc find out that Emmet Brown was killed shortly after the writing of the letter (by Mad Dog Tannen, the great-grandfather of Biff).
Right after the time-jump, the DeLorean is attacked by Indians who put an arrow to the gas tank, the fuel goes away.
Doc finds a way to solve that: they must kidnap a train and accelerate with that above 88 mphs.
Doc saves the new teacher of the town, Clara Clayton, who was supposed to die, and falls in love with her.
Continuity mistake: When Marty returns to 1985, he goes to his house and gets in his Toyota pick-up. Look closely behind his head when he first gets in the truck, there is no driver-side head rest. But when he picks up Jennifer, when they pull up to the stop sign the head rest is there. (01:45:00)
Jennifer: Excuse me, Doc Brown. I brought this message back from the future and, well, now it's erased.
Doc: Of course it's erased.
Jennifer: But what does that mean?
Doc: It means your futures haven't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is what ever you make. So make it a good one, the both of you.
Trivia: When filming the scene where Marty is being hanged from the clock tower, Michael J Fox agreed to really hang from the rope. Whilst filming, Fox held the rope away from his throat with his hand. At one time he wasn't holding the rope and was really being strangled. The film crew didn't realise, they just thought it was really good acting, until he passed out.
