Howard's daughter was a Girl Scout, who was selling Sophie Mae peanut brittle for $5.00 a case to raise money for her baseball team, and arrived, wearing her baseball team uniform and carrying an entire case of peanut brittle, with her father at the front door of the McFly residence, whereupon Howard pressured George McFly to purchase the case.
A box of Sophie Mae peanut brittle was present on the table at dinner, and George poured some of the confection into a bowl.
Behind the scenes
- In the novelization, Howard's daughter is only referred to, and there is no scene where the pair appear at the front door. She is also mentioned as selling Girl Scout cookies rather than peanut brittle.
