- "That ain't no airplane. Look!"
- —Sherman Peabody upon discovering the DeLorean time machine in his family's barn.
Flying saucer was a word mostly to replace the abbreviation UFO (Unidentified Flying Object), as a stereotypical UFO appears to be a large, flying disc. Sherman Peabody called the DeLorean a flying saucer after his father called it "an airplane without wings".
