BTTF day - Move to "franchise" article?[edit]

I would move this topic in the "franchise" article instead of BTTF-2 and now BTTF-1 since the event is common to the entire trilogy and not a specific movie. Objections? -- Lyverbe (talk) 00:10, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Seems reasonable to me. BTTF2's article should still have a brief para on it but that links to the franchise, since that date stems from that. --MASEM (t) 19:48, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Biff's role at the end of the movie?[edit]

The plot currently states "...and Biff is now George's obsequious subordinate" - I don't think this is correct. "Subordinate" suggests that Biff works for George, but AFAIK he doesn't - he seems to have some kind of garage/mechanic/auto detailing company. I can't think of a decent term to replace "subordinate" right now, but I'm pretty sure it's wrong as it stands. Chaheel Riens (talk) 09:08, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

I agree. "Client", "Customer", etc. but not "Subordinate" -- Lyverbe (talk) 12:17, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
