Lou: "Hey, kid! Whad'da do, jump ship?"
Marty: "What?"
Lou: "What's with the life preserver?"
Lou Caruthers to Marty in 1955

A life preserver is a device that is worn to aid in flotation in the event of falling overboard from a boat.

In 1985, Marty's puffy burnt orange down vest was common, but when he traveled to 1955, everyone thought the vest was a life preserver.

Skinhead declared Marty a dork for wearing a life preserver on dry land, much to the amusement of Biff, Match and 3-D, saying "Hey, Biff. Get a load of this guy's life preserver. Dork thinks he's gonna drown!"
