- "Happy Trails, Marty!"
- —Doc, as Marty travels back to 1885
- "He [Marty] closed the [car] door again as Doc stepped out of his path. Marty put the DeLorean in gear and turned the car across the asphalt and gravel, toward the drive-in screen. / 'Happy Trails, Marty!' Doc called after him. ' Vaya con Dios! ' / Marty waved and shifted the DeLorean up through the gears. He aimed the car for center screen and floored the accelerator. "
