- "Pretty mediocre photographic fakery, they cut off your brother's hair."
- —Doc to Marty
Throughout the week, Marty kept tabs on the photo as his brother and sister completely disappeared, with him to follow. Just as Mark Dixon pushed George away from Lorraine to cut in at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, Marty's image began to fade, and soon after Marty's own hand. However, upon George's swift recovery, his parents kissed, and the photo was completely restored.
Behind the scenes
A poster sized version of the photograph can be seen on the wall of Marty's bedroom in Back to the Future. As with the poster for Huey Lewis's album, Sports, one can only glimpse it for a few seconds on film. It is hanging on the wall over his bed.
