- "So do I. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, my absolute favorite. The first time I read that, when I was a little boy, I wanted to meet Captain Nemo!"
- —Doc Brown discussing his love for Jules Verne.
This novel was mentioned by Dr. Emmett Brown while discussing Jules Verne with Clara Clayton on September 5, 1885, describing it as being "my absolute favorite" when he was a little boy — as well as mentioning that he had wanted to meet Captain Nemo when he first read the book.
In his enthusiasm, Doc had forgotten where he was, as Clara calmly pointed out that the book had only been published fifteen years before and Doc therefore could not have read it when he was a little boy (as far as she was aware).
