I should be honored.

Alternate Takes


Used Unused Notes
In the game, Doc apologizes to Marty for what just happened. The alternate take is much more manic and desperate.
An earlier take where Marty never mentions who was in his dream. His voice also sounds less rough.

Hill Valley

Used Unused Notes
Apparently Doc's assumed name in 1931 was John Doe at one point. In the final game he goes by Carl Sagan.
"Hill Valley Stationers" said in two different ways.

Unused Clips

There are also a fairly large amount of unused clips in the game, sometimes including funny annotations by the developers in the script files. Text between curly brackets is used to describe the character's pose or animation, while the text enclosed in square brackets are comments by the script writers about the scene or how a voice file should be performed. Additionally, many of these files do not have subtitles for them, which means they are never used.

Hill Valley Town Square

Marty Statler... DeSoto.
Car Dealer Hey, kid! Wanna buy a car?
Marty No, ah, I've already got a -
Marty C'mon kid, I'm dying here! Lemme show you the '31s! 67 horses under these hoods!
Marty I've already got a car.

The Statler DeSoto car dealership is part of the scenery in 1931, but you can't click on the signs, or go inside. The joke may have been a bit too dark for the game considering how lighthearted it is.

Adlibbed Takes

Sound File Character Transcript/Text
Biff At one point, Einstein distracts Kid Tannen so Marty can escape. In these adlibbed takes, it sounds like Biff is being licked by Einstein since he mentions his "horrible" breath.
