- Colt Gun Salesman: "Uh, just tell me one thing. Where'd you learn to shoot like that?"
- Marty: "7-Eleven."
- — At the Town Festival
In 1984, Marty McFly played Wild Gunman at 7-Eleven. He met Jennifer Parker there, and was going to ask her on a date, but was interrupted by Douglas J. Needles. Needles mocked Marty because he doesn't have a car, which embarrassed him as he is afraid that Jennifer will reject him over someone who has their own vehicle. After deciding against stealing Doc's DeLorean DMC-12 to try to impress Jennifer, he takes Doc's advice and asks her out. They then go on a date to see a Clint Eastwood film.
In 2015, there was a 7-Eleven store in Hill Valley located where the Texaco service station used to be in 1985. A new automated gas and oil service station for flying cars had been built on top of the store.
Behind the scenes
- In the commentary for Part III, Bob Gale mentions that the 7-Eleven reference was changed to Disneyland for international releases of the film due to it not being as well-known in most other countries.
