Finally, at the insistence of a family friend, they decided to
enroll their son in a private Catholic school.
After the first day, the boy’s parents were surprised when he
walked in after school with a stern, focused and very
determined expression on his face. He went straight past them,

she saw a large red ‘A’ under the subject of Math. Overjoyed,
she and her husband rushed into their son’s room, thrilled at

ANSWER: Back to the Future! Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) says this to Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) in response to Marty’s concern that Doc’s time-travelling DeLorean won’t have enough room on his street to achieve 88 MPH, the requisite speed to achieve time travel. What Marty doesn’t know is that the DeLorean has been upgraded, and can now fly!
“Back to the Future” concerns itself with the idea of a teenager travelling back in time and interfering (accidentally, for the most part) with the events that led his parents to get together, and cause him to exist in the first place.
