While watching this Back to The Future deleted scene my first thought was that this was one of those clever, wacky internet redubs or a Bad Lip Reading video. That’s how out of character and strange the dialogue in this clip is to any fan of the beloved movie. However on closer inspection this appears to be a totally authentic cut scene from the classic original installment of the BTTF trilogy where Marty and Doc discuss how to handle the inadvertent crush Marty’s mom has developed for him. Watch and you’ll see why it was cut. . .
The joke itself definitely wasn’t offensive by today’s raunchy comedy standards but remember this was a “family movie.” This scene is totally off from the tone of the rest of the film. That being said I can see why they cut the scene; it gets a little icky! I mean who wants to hear Doc try to convince Marty that he needs to get a little handsy with HIS OWN MOM and “take a few liberties with her.” – Jesus Christ! Enough of our childhood icons from the 80’s have been revealed as total perverts– don’t take Doc and Marty away from us!
Doc gettin’ his creep on.
It’s 2015, the year that Marty McFly and Doc Brown head to the future. And while where we are going we still need roads, at least we have this awkward cut clip of the fellas to laugh at. The DVD extra video was originally posted in 2011, but has been getting a lot of attention recently (maybe due to the fact that all things BTTF are in this year.) And why not with lines like this;
Marty: “This is the kind of thing that could screw me up permanently. What if I go back to the future and I end up being gay?”
Doc Brown: “What’s wrong with being happy?”
