    • 8:45 a.m.: Marty McFly brought the Static accumulator for Emmett Brown's experiment. On the way in, he ran into Citizen Brown who described the plan on changing his younger self's destiny.

    • 2:31 p.m.: Marty entered the Hill Valley Science Expo and received some tickets for the exhibits. While there, he found that Edna Strickland order Danny Parker to close Emmett's exhibit, and had to dig up some dirt on Edna before Danny could dismiss her orders. In addition, Emmett went missing.
    • After a chasing Citizen Brown through Atlas House of Glass and the Enlightenment Under the Sea exhibit, Marty found Emmett.

    • 5:47 p.m.: Emmett Brown was ready to demonstrate the electrokinetic levitator only for his father, Judge Erhardt Brown, to demand calling off the experiment. After some help from Marty, the two come to an understanding, with Erhardt permitting the experiment to go through.
    • Marty's attention was diverted outside where Edna steals the Delorean to retreat, while accidentally running down Citizen Brown (who was starting to fade due to the change in the timeline). After seeing his new timeline, Citizen Brown fully vanished.
    • Emmett's invention was demonstrated in the Hill Valley Science Expo. It proved to be a failure, though Emmett is still determined to pursue science. He goes outside to inform Marty, who was shaken by the death of Citizen Brown. Emmett, due to his curiosity of Marty demanded an explanation and is given a newspaper clip from May 15, 1986. Emmett was told not to look at the clip until he receives the key to the city, which he agreed to. He then went back into the High School.
