    When Marty gets his parents back together, he gets to save the lives of himself and his siblings. However, this is assuming that the exact same sperm fertilized the egg on 3 separate occasions. The odds of that are astronomical.

    Also, at the beginning, when Doc is controlling the Delorean by remote control, he engages the brake and performs a "burnout" manoeuvre. The car stays in place but the back tires are spinnning. As this is happening, the speed indicator on his remote increases until he disengages the brake and the time machine is put into motion. How can a car have speed if it is staying in one place?

    Yeah and now he doesn't share the same memories growing up as the rest of his family.

    He's ruined his entire life, he'll probably have a mental breakdown before he turns 21. But it is better than the broken down cuckold home he was living in before.

    He was hostile to me, too. I can't understand why anyone would be hostile to you or me.
