00:00:00 - 00:02:45
In 1955, Doc can't think of a way to generate the 1.21 gigawatts needed to power the DeLorean so Marty can go back to the future. Because Marty has information about the future, they are able to concoct a plan to channel the energy from a lightning bolt into the flux capacitor.

Public Discussion Questions
