Scene 12

  • Getaway in progress. Marty zips down a quiet road, as the sun starts to come up. He tries to convince himself this is all a dream, but he isn't buying it. Especially not after he sees a new development where they have just broken ground—Lyon Estates.
  • Enter Murphy's Law. The car dies, and Marty has to hide it and then trudge the rest of the way into town on foot. At least he appears to be wearing comfortable shoes.
