Back To The Future - Marty's Disappearing Note
When Marty looks up the Doc in 1955, Marty is showing him a note that he got from his girlfriend Jennifer in 1985. On the back is the "save the clocktower" advertisement. The Doc spots the ad and comes up with the idea to use the power of the bolt of lightning to get Marty BACK TO THE FUTURE. But when he takes the piece of paper away to look at it in the light, you can clearly see that there was no note from Jennifer on the opposite side of the sheet.

Remember that Marty had altered history by interfering with his parents. In time, he'll see his brother, sister and himself start to fade away. If he was never born, he couldn't very well be dating Jennifer. Her love note to him was simply one of the first things to fade.

I was just watching this movie a couple days ago and noticed this, too. Although you got it wrong: what happens is Doc says "the only way to create that much energy (1.21 jigawatts) is a bolt of lightning...the only thing is we never know when or where it's going to strike." And then Marty says "We do now..." as he hands Doc the clocktower flier. So it was Marty who came up with the idea to use that lightning strike to generate the power, not Doc.
