The headline for November 6, 1955

  • Otis Peabody was sent to the County Asylum after claiming to officials that a "space zombie" crashed into his barn.
  • Marty McFly hooked up the JVC camcorder to Doc Brown's television set, after they had brought the DeLorean Time Machine back to Doc's garage, at about 12:30 in the morning (according to the clock in the garage). After initial despair that a source could ever be found to generate 1.21 gigawatts to send Marty back to 1985, Doc and Marty learned that a bolt of lightning would strike the Clock Tower on November 12. Soon after, they realized that there was another problem to solve; Marty's interference with his parents' first meeting was jeopardizing his existence.
  • Doc went to a local Sears & Roebuck store, where he purchased clothing more appropriate for Marty to wear in 1955.[1]
