E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Elliott: He's a man from outer space and we're taking him to his spaceship.
Elliott: Well, can't he just beam up?
Elliott: This is *reality*, Greg.

Michael: Did you explain school to him?
Elliott: How do you explain school to higher intelligence?
Michael: Maybe he's not that smart. Maybe he's like a worker bee who only knows how to push buttons or something.
Elliott: [knowingly] He is too smart.
Michael: Okay, I just hope we don't wake up on Mars or something surrounded by millions of little squashy guys.

Michael: Maybe it was an iguana.
Elliott: It was *no* iguana.
Michael: Maybe, um - You know how they say there are alligators in the sewers?
Gertie: Alligators in the sewers.
Mary: All we're trying to say is, maybe you just probably imagined it. It happened...
Elliott: I couldn't have imagined it!
Michael: Maybe it was a pervert or a deformed kid or something.
Gertie: A deformed kid.
Michael: [mockingly] Maybe an elf or a leprechaun.
Elliott: It was nothing like that, penis-breath!
Mary: [laughs in shock] *Elliot*! Sit down.

Mary: If you ever see it again, whatever it is, don't touch it, just call me and we'll have somebody come and take it away.
Gertie: Like the dogcatcher?
Elliott: But they'll give it a lobotomy or do experiments on it or something.

Michael: Maybe he's some animal that wasn't supposed to live; kind of like those rabbits we saw. He could be a monkey or an orangutan.
Elliott: A bald monkey?
Gertie: Is he a pig? He sure eats like one.

Elliott: You could be happy here, I could take care of you. I wouldn't let anybody hurt you. We could grow up together, E.T.

Keys: Elliot, that machine, what does it do?
Elliott: [in a sickly voice] The communicator? Is it still working?
Keys: It's doing *something*. What?
Elliott: I really shouldn't tell. He came to me, he came to me.
Keys: Elliot, he came to me too. I've been wishing for this since I was 10 years old, I don't want him to die. What can we do that we're not already doing?
Elliott: He needs to go home; he's calling his people. And I don't know where they are, but he needs to go home.
Keys: Elliot, I don't think he was left here intentionally, but his being here is a miracle, Elliot. It's a miracle and you did the best that anybody could do. I'm glad he met you first.

Elliott: You must be dead, because I don't know how to feel. I can't feel anything anymore.

Elliott: Think, Michael. What would make a radar?
Michael: How the hell do I know? You're the genius in the family; you have absolute power, remember?

Michael: Where's the playground?
Elliott: It's near the preschool!
Michael: Where's that?
Elliott: I don't know streets! Mom always drives me!
Michael: Son of a bitch.

Elliott: I'm keeping him.

Elliott: [tearfully, while looking down at E.T.'s plastic-covered corpse] I'll believe in you all my life, everyday. E.T... I love you.

[last lines]
E.T.: Come...
Elliot: [solemnly] Stay...
E.T.: [puts his finger to his glowing heart] Ouch.
Elliot: [mimics the same action, tearfully] Ouch.
E.T.: [E.T. and Elliot embrace each other, then E.T. puts his glowing finger to Elliot's forehead] I'll... be... right... here.
Elliot: [tearfully] ... bye.

E.T.: [steps on a bathroom scale, it reads 35 lbs]
Elliott: 35 pounds? You're fat!

Gertie: [solemnly] I did breakfast.
Michael: [noticing how upset Mary is] What's the matter, mom?
Mary: [leaves in tears, to herself, about her husband] He HATES Mexico!
Michael: [to Elliot, furiously] Damn it, why don't you - grow up and think how other people feel for a change!
[Elliot goes angry and does the dishes]

Elliott: But, look, you can't tell. Not even Mom.
Gertie: Why not?
Elliott: Because, uh, grown-ups can't see him. Only little kids can see him.
Gertie: Give me a break!
Elliott: [Transylvanian accent] Well, do you know what's going to happen if you do tell?
[Elliot grabs Gertie's doll and throw it to Michael]
Elliott: Do it, Mike, we have to.
[Gertie begs the doll back as Elliott and Michael 'torture' it. They stop when Gertie vows to keep E.T. a secret]
Elliott: [to Gertie] Promise?
Gertie: [distressed] Yes.
Elliott: [to Michael] You promise?
[Michael nods]

Gertie: I don't like his feet.
Elliott: They're only feet, you little twerp.

Elliott: [upon encountering E.T., running excitedly into the house] Mom, Mom! There's something out there!
Mary: What?
Elliott: It's in the toolshed. It threw the ball at me.
[Michael and his friends mock him loudly]
Elliott: QUIET!
[Michael's friends go silent]
Elliott: [in hushed tone] Nobody go out there!
Michael: [the boys all spring up excitedly] Ha! Ha! Ha!
[they grab knives]
Mary: Stop, now! You guys stay right here!
Michael: You stay here, Mom, we'll check it out!
Mary: And put those knives back!
[Elliot grabs her hand and pulls her outside as well]
Mary: Okay, Elliot! Let me get a flashlight.

Greg: Cintus suprimus!
Elliott: Zero charisma!
Greg: Cintus suprimus!

Greg: Cintus suprimus!

Greg: You wimp!

Elliott: [seeing E.T. in a dress, with a wig and jewelry] Oh, God!

E.T.: Elliot!... Elliot!
Gertie: I taught him how to talk now. He can talk now.
[Elliot sees electronics and supplies together in the closet]
Gertie: Look what he brought up here all by himself. What's he need this stuff for?
Elliott: E.T., can you say that? Can you say 'E.T.'? E.T.
E.T.: Eeee Teee.
Elliott: [Elliot laughs in amazement]
E.T.: [waddling away] E.T.! E.T.! E.T.! Beee good.
Gertie: "Be good"! I taught him that, too!
Elliott: You should give him his dignity. This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.
E.T.: [gives Elliot a newspaper and points at a comic picture] Phone.
Elliott: 'Phone'? He said 'phone'? He said 'phone'?
