Quotes:
From Back to the Future (1985)
[Biff is waxing George's car, it's a silver BMW]
George McFly: Now, Biff, I want to make sure that we get two coats of wax this time, not just one.
Biff Tannen: I'm just finishing up the second coat now.
George McFly: Now, Biff, don't con me.
Biff Tannen: [stammering] I'm sorry, Mr. McFly. I-I meant I was just starting on the second coat.
George McFly: Biff. What a character. Always trying to get away with something. I've had to stay on top of Biff ever since high school. Although, if it wasn't for him...
Lorraine Baines: We never would have fallen in love.
George McFly: That's right.
