Jennifer told her boyfriend Marty McFly she would be at her grandma's house on the evening of October 25, 1985 and so wrote down her grandma's telephone number, 555-4823, along with I love you!, on the back of a xeroxed SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER flyer given to Marty by the Clock Tower lady. Although Marty promised to call Jennifer there, he never got around to doing so.
Whether Jennifer's grandma was her maternal or paternal grandparent remains unrecorded.
Behind the scenes
