turn out fine.
It's your kids, Marty.
Something has got to be done
about your kids.
We better back up.
We don't have enough road to get up to 88.
Roads? Where we're going,
we don't need roads.

Subtitles by SOFTITLERHello, everybody, and welcome
to the Back to the Future Q and A session...
...here at the University of Southern California.
We have the distinct honor
to have the two Bobs:
Director-Writer, Robert Zemeckis,
and Producer-Writer, Bob Gale.
They're here to answer questions
about the making of Back to the Future.
And having justscreened the film,
I'm sure there will be plenty of questions.
My name is Laurent Bouzereau
and I am producing the Back to the Future DVD...
...in collaboration
with Universal Studios Home Video.
I will be moderating today's event.
I will be also repeating each of the questions
so that the audience can hearit.
And all ofyou at home watching this DVD
and listening to this audio commentary...
...can also hear what the questions were.
So here we go.
Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale.
Well, let's getstarted, Bob and Bob.
Can you tell us a little
about where you were atin your career...
...at the time thatyou started working
on Back to the Future?
Bob Zemeckis,
tell us aboutyour career at the time.
Where we were when we wrote the screenplay
was different from when we made the movie.
When we wrote the screenplay,
we hadjust finished Used Cars...
...and we couldn't get a movie made.
We couldn't get a movie made anywhere.
It was like a three, maybe four-year dry spell.
We wrote Back to the Future during that time.
And then I went off
and made Romancing the Stone...
...and then we were able...
...to get Back to the Future made
after that movie, thankfully it was a hit.
Because I've got a....
In my archives, I've got a rejection letter
from every single studio.
Every single studio.
Sometimes more than one
from the same studio.
Sometimes they sentit back twice,
rejecting Back to the Future...
...as an idea for a movie.
Bob Gale, do you want to tell us a little bit
about how you guys write together...
...how you came up with the actual idea
for Back to the Future?
And, maybe, begin with yourinitial fascination
with time travel.
We'd always wanted to do a time-travel movie.
Actually...
...we were fascinated by the fact
thatpeople always predict the future wrong.
We thoughtit would be interesting
to make a movie that took place in a future...
...scene like the 1939 World's Fair,
that had everything wrong in the future.
So that was....
The idea of doing a time-travel movie
kind of came out of that.
But there was really no movie there.
After Used Cars came out, I went back
to visit my parents in St. Louis, Missouri...
...and I found my father's high school yearbook.
I discovered that my father had been
the president of his graduating class.
Something that I didn't know.
I started thinking about the president
of my graduating class...
...who was somebody
I would've had nothing to do with.
I was head of the Student Committee
to Abolish Student Government.
So I thought, "If I had gone to high school
with my dad...
"... would I have been friends with him?"
And that was the spark of the idea.
So when I came back to California,
I told thatlittle story to Bob.
Hejumped up and said:
"Yeah, and wouldn'tit be interesting
ifyour mom, who said thatshe'd never, ever...
"... kissed a boy on a date or anything,
turned out to be the school slut?"
So we started cooking on this...
...and that's how the concept got going.
Of course, there was only one way to have
a kid go to high school with his parents.
And that was, from ourpoint of view,
to do itin a time machine.
We'd seen plenty of movies where....
Plenty ofstories....
In A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court...
...he gets hit on the head
and he's suddenly back in the past.
And we never bought that.
So we decided
