After visiting 2015, Marty McFly must repeat his visit to 1955 to prevent disastrous changes to 1985...without interfering with his first trip.
Bob Gale, a baseball fan in real life, said he came up with the scene referencing a World Series Championship by the Chicago Cubs upon personally brainstorming about the most unlikely scenarios he could come up with. Gale also said he based the timing of the 2015 World Series on the usual World Series scheduling at the time of the movie's production and release. Gale admitted he erred in not foreseeing MLB expanding their playoff schedule by the mid 1990s, and pushing the World Series until later in October, and in the case of 2015, early November.
How 'bout a ride, mister?
Marty McFly: Jennifer! Oh, man, are you a sight for sore eyes; let me look at you.
Young Jennifer: Marty, you're acting like you haven't seen me in a week.
Marty McFly: I haven't.
While both the Destination Time and the Present Time say "OCT 21 2015 04:" in the beginning of the film, only the Present Time says it's in the "PM".
The DVD version (Regions 1 and 2) has "To Be Concluded" followed by the teaser for Part III just before the start of the credits.
The original 2002 DVDs for parts II and III had major framing errors when the wrong areas of the open-matte frame were transferred (known as the "framing fiasco"). This is noticeable for several minutes in each movie and usually manifests as too much sky and missing objects at the bottom. Universal had replacements ready by 2003. A sample from part II is the blinking size button on the future jacket, which is supposed to be visible. Copies with a "V2" next to the copyright notice on the disc, the 2009 single-disc reprint, and the 25th anniversary sets are OK.
