How the longer term doc would react to Marty destroying his large amp, says Bob Gale

That attitude could go a long way in explaining why Doc doesn’t berate Marty about the blown amplifier when they meet at the Twin Pines Mall later that night to run tests on the DeLorean Time Machine. However, there’s another fun option I’ve offered Gale: it’s possible Doc never actually saw the destruction. He was clearly busy preparing for his big experiment on the day in question, and although he must have ducked home at some point to get the plutonium in the suitcase under his bed, it wouldn’t be atypical if he were so excited about his big night when he didn’t even realize his house had been destroyed.
