Tommy, Tommy, just let me get a couple of minutes, will you? Because I promised Mr. Terry that I would let him know by tomorrow. You and Virginia can fight anytime.
When Marty and his mother are getting ready for Mass, Marty drinks a glass of water and his mother has some coffee. In an observant Catholic household, it would have been forbidden to have anything to eat or drink before Mass.
When Marty drops off Clara at her home after their evening out, there is an additional 5-minute sequence where she visits her parents in their bedroom and discusses her date with Marty (included in the CBS FOX VHS and the 2014 Kino Lorber releases, but deleted from the MGM Vintage Classics VHS and DVD).
