E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) Poster

Drew Barrymore: Gertie



  • 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]  *Elliott*! Sit down.

  • [Mary hits E.T. with the refrigerator door] 

    Gertie : Here he is.

    Mary : [absently]  Here's who?

    Gertie : The man from the moon. But I think you've killed him already.

  • E.T. : [saying good-bye]  Beeeeeee... gooood.

    Gertie : [tearfully]  Yes.

  • 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.

  • [after E.T. learns how to talk] 

    Mary : Gertie, I have to go pick up Elliott. Will you be a good girl and stay...

    Gertie : Mama, he can talk!

    Mary : [thinking she meant Elliott]  Of course he can talk. I'll be right back in ten minutes. Stay there.

  • 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] 

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

    E.T. : Elliot.

    Elliott : [still too frustrated to notice he just spoke to him]  What?

    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'?

    Gertie : Can't you understand English? He said 'phone'.

    E.T. : [points to closet]  Home?

    Elliott : You're right. That's E.T.'s home.

    E.T. : [scurries over to the window and points his long finger towards it]  E.T. home phone.

    Gertie : [clarifying]  E.T. phone home.

    Elliott : E.T. phone home.

    [understanding what he means] 

    Elliott : E.T. phone home!

    Gertie : He wants to call somebody.

  • Gertie : What are you going as for Halloween?

    Elliott : [Elliot is upset because nobody believes him]  I'm not going to stupid Halloween.

    Michael : [to Elliot]  Why don't you go as a goblin?

    Elliott : [flatly]  Shut up.

  • 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.

  • Mary : It's your turn to do the dishes, fellas.

    Michael : I set and cleared.

    Elliott : [in a stern tone]  I set and cleared.

    Michael : [quickly]  I did breakfast.

    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] 

  • Gertie : I don't like his feet.

    Elliott : They're only feet, you little twerp.
