Marty McFly yelling at Buford Tannen

Jerk was a word used to describe bullies or people with a bad attitude.


Marty McFly called Buford Tannen a jerk right after preventing him from killing Dr. Emmett Brown with a shot from his derringer. Buford and his gang were confused by these words, which Buford acknowledged as "mighty strong words".
