A very important date in Steven Spielberg's Back to the Future trilogy. It's 'a redletter date in the history of science' according to the 1985 Doc Brown, because that's the day he was standing on a toilet, hanging a clock, slipped, hit his head on the porcelain, and when he came to he had a vision, a revelation, a picture in his head. The vision was of the flux capacitor, which makes time travel possible.

This is the day back to which Marty McFly accidentally sent himself after being chased by the Libyan terrorists. Later during this day, Marty bumps into his parents, screwing up the event that allows them to fall in love. Marty spends the rest of that week trying to fix the situation with his parents and get back to late October of 1985.
