- "So do I. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, my absolute favorite. The first time I read that, when I was a little boy, I wanted to meet Captain Nemo!"
- —Doc Brown discussing his love for Jules Verne.
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (in French: Vingts mille lieues sous les mers) was a novel by Jules Verne published in 1870. This novel was mentioned by Doc Brown while discussing Jules Verne with Clara Clayton in 1885, describing it as being "my absolute favorite" when he was a little boy.
In his enthusiasm, Doc had forgotten where he was, as Clara calmly pointed out to him that the book had only been published fifteen years before and he therefore could not have read it when he was a little boy (as far as she was aware).
