- George McFly misses all day of school.
- Biff Tannen scolds George McFly for entering Lou's Cafe, since he told him three days earlier never to come back there again, Lorraine Baines McFly is witnessing it happen along with her best friend Babs.
- Biff Tannen later leaves Lou's Cafe along with his friends (Match, 3-D and Skinhead) and possibly comments on a manure truck that he spots while driving.
- In the early morning, Marty, in a radiation suit as "Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan", visited George to try and convince him to take Lorraine to the dance that Saturday.
- George tried to ask Lorraine out at the cafe, but when Biff interrupted, Marty defeated him in a skateboard chase around Courthouse Square causing him to crash into a manure truck.
- Doc used a demonstration model to explain to Marty his plan to use lightning to power the flux capacitor, and Lorraine asked Marty to ask her to the Enchantment Under the Sea dance.
