you have anything useful?": She has a tire iron but wants something in exchange

Officer Parker. Exit the conversation and run right to the courthouse gate.
Press the buzzer at the left side of the gate: Doc is too busy at the moment.
As Marty turns away from the gate, Biff steps out of the electric car and
shakes Doc's hand. Enter the park and talk to Biff. Say "Was that Doc in the
car?". Select any option when Biff says that he used to be a bad apple. Say
"Tell me about your sordid past.". Say "Tell me about the illegal substances.":
He used to drink and smuggle alcohol into Hill Valley. Say "Tell me about the
vicious dogs?: Dogs are banned in Hill Valley. Say "Tell me about the "illegal"
women.": Public displays of affection aren't allowed in Hill Valley. Say "I've
heard enough.". Exit the conversation to see Jennifer walk into an alley.

Run left out of the park and go down the road at the right side of SoupMo. Talk
to Jennifer about any option. Exit the alley to see Marty's mother arrive in a
golf cart. Enter the park and talk to Lorraine. Say "What are you doing out
here?": She will be polishing the statue in the park all day. Say "Whose golf
cart is that?" to receive the time sheet. Run left out of the park and use the

the alley to see him run up a plank and jump over a fence. Examine the ammo box
to take the spray paint. Use the spray paint on the plank to spray it blue.
Select the plank to jump over the fence. Examine the pallette, fridge or the
table and Einstein will run out of the alley. Exit the alley and then return to

himself up to fall. Start by selecting the Scissor Kick to knock the amp over:
Leech will knock his amp and some buckets over. Move towards Jennifer and then

around the room to find objects that might help his memory. Examine the movie
ticket and the photo of Einstein on the desk. Walk to the left side of the room
and examine the portrait. Walk to the right side of the room and examine the
fish tank. Brown shows Marty a photograph and Marty says he sees something.
Examine the 1931 photo and select Marty and Doc standing on the other side of
the road: Brown begins to realise Marty is telling the truth, but wants proof
that people aren't happy in this version of Hill Valley.

that shows the yard. Press the VCR below the monitor to see Biff attack George.


CONFRONT BIFF AND LOCATE GEORGE'S SECRET TAPE

says he can't hurt anyone thanks to Citizen Plus. Say "Where were you when my
dad was attacked?": He doesn't remember. Say "What's the last thing you
remember?": Edna wanted to run a diagnostic on his watch and then he fell
asleep. Say "Let me see your watch." to view a close-up. Press the mode button
and then press the left down arrow three times to change the left letter to X.

Doc about all three options. Try to open the cage and Biff will wake up.
