STEVE: Five. (SARCASTICALLY) MIKE: Oh, great.

So you got an arrow right in your chest. And you're out 10 melee rounds.

Oh, no. GREG: Don't worry about it, Mike. I got resurrection.

I'm already one of the undead. I can still throw death spells.

GREG: I'm just trying to help you out, man. Don't be so cranky.

How about throwing a spell over the pizza man?

Where's our pizza, man?

Well, I'm ready now to play.

I'm ready to play now, you guys.

We're in the middle, Elliott. You can't just join any universe in the middle.

I got him! I got him!

What am I asking for?

(ALL TALKING INDISTINCTLY)

GREG: Yeah. ELLIOTT: Mike?

GREG: I know. It's not for us, it's for his mother.

Mike?

Papa-oom-mow-mow. You have to ask Steve. He's game master.

He has absolute power.

Steve? TYLER: (MOCKINGLY) Steve, can I play now?

Go wait for the pizza first.

Then I'm in? Yeah, you're in.

Figure out your strategy. You're playing after Greg.

Plenty of sausage and pepperonis.

Everything but the little fishies.

GREG: Money helps.

ELLIOTT: Mom! Mom! There's something out... MIKE: Where's the pizza?

Mom! Mom! There's something out there! It's in the tool shed.

(ALL CLAMORING) (PANTING) It threw the ball at me.

(WHISPERING) Nobody go out there.

MARY: Let's go get the flashlight.

Hold it. Wait a minute.

ELLIOTT: In there. (BOYS LAUGHING)

Get out. Hurry up.

Quick. Hurry up. Come on.

Tyler, give me that knife.

Oh, great. Nice one, Elliott. (OTHER BOYS SIGHING)

MARY: A pizza? Who said you guys could order a pizza?

Him. (STAMMERING)

ELLIOTT: I'm not going to stupid Halloween.

Why don't you go as a goblin?

Shut up. (CHUCKLES)

It's not that we don't believe you, honey.

Well, it was real. I swear.

What are you going as, Gert?

I'm going as a cowgirl.

ELLIOTT: So what else is new?

Maybe it was an iguana. ELLIOTT: It was no iguana.

MIKE: Maybe a...

A...

You know how they say there are alligators in the sewers?

Alligators in the sewers.

All we're trying to say is, maybe you just probably imagined it.

I couldn't have imagined it.

Maybe it was a pervert or a deformed kid or something.

A deformed kid.

Maybe an elf or a leprechaun.

It was nothing like that, penis breath!

Elliott!

Sit down.

(MARY CLEARS THROAT)

Dad would believe me.

(SIGHS)

Maybe you ought to call your father and tell him about it.

I can't. He's in Mexico with Sally.

Where's Mexico?

Excuse me.

(WHISPERING) I'm going to kill you.

MARY: (SHAKILY) 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.

Like the dogcatcher?

They'll give it a lobotomy or do experiments on it or something.

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

I set and cleared. I set and cleared.

MIKE: I did breakfast. I did breakfast.

(MARY SLAMS DOWN DISHES) (MARY SIGHS)

The fish eat the fish food and the shark eats the fish, but nobody eats a shark.

See, this is Pez. Candy.

You see, you eat it.

You put the candy in here and then when you lift up the head, the candy comes out and you can eat it.

You want some?

This is a peanut.

You eat it.

But you can't eat this one because this is fake.

This is money. You see?

We put the money in the peanut.

You see? Bank.

You see? And then,

this is a car.

This is what we get around in.

See? A car.

(CRUNCHING SOUNDS) Hey! Hey! Wait a second.

Add to your collection But they keep you hanging on

(MIKE CONTINUES SINGING)

ELLIOTT: Mike, Mike, come in.

How you feeling, faker? I'm feeling fine.

Look, I got something really important...

Tyler said he got 69,000 on Asteroids yesterday.

But he pulled the plug. Look, remember the goblin?

You're so lame, Elliott.

Come on, Michael. He came back.

He came back?

Oh, my God! (SCREAMS)

ELLIOTT: One thing.

I have absolute power.

Say it.

Say it! What have you got? Is it the coyote?

No. Look...

Okay. Now, swear it.

The most excellent promise you can make.

Swear as my only brother on our lives.

Okay, don't get so heavy. I swear.

(SIGHS) Okay. Stand over there.

And you'd better take off your shoulder pads.

What? You might scare him. And close your eyes.

Don't push it, Elliott.

ELLIOTT: I'm not coming out there until your eyes are closed.

Okay. They're closed.

(MUTTERING) Mom is going to kill you.

(EXCLAIMING)

Okay. Swear it one more time.

I have absolute power. (IMITATING YODA) You have absolute power. Yes.

Hi, honey, how are you feel...

What happened in here?

Oh, you mean my room.

This is no room.

This is an accident.

I was reorganizing.

(E.T. BREATHING) MARY: I can see that.

(MUFFLED SCREAMS) MARY: Put those shelves back on the wall, dear.

Let's get the toys off the floor.

Make your bed since you are not using it.

Well, you're feeling better, I see.

Will you guys keep an eye on Gertie for me while I take a shower?

Absolutely.

(SIGHS)

Bye, Mom.

(SIGHS IN RELIEF)

(E.T. BREATHING)

(E.T. MOANS)

Elliott...

I'm keeping him.

What is it?

He won't hurt you, Gertie.

ELLIOTT: He won't hurt you, Gertie.

We're not going to hurt you.

Is he a boy or a girl?

ELLIOTT: He's a boy.

Was he wearing any clothes? (SIGHS)

No.

But, look, you can't tell. Not even Mom.

Why not?

Because grownups can't see him.

Only little kids can see him.

Give me a break.

(IMITATING COUNT DRACULA) Well, do you know what's going to happen if you do tell?

Do it, Mike. We have to.

MIKE AS THE DOLL: No, please!

No! I'll do anything, please! (GERTIE CRYING)

MIKE: Come on, come on. Hurry up.

GERTIE: Don't be pushy, pushy.

A plant for you.

MIKE: Maybe he's some animal that wasn't supposed to live.

You know, like those rabbits we saw that time.

ELLIOTT: Don't be lame. GERTIE: Green, orange, red.

MIKE: Could be a monkey or an orangutan...

ELLIOTT: A bald monkey?

Is he a pig? He sure eats like one.

GERTIE: You could make faces.

And make them mean and happy and make them get sharp teeth.

We are here.

ELLIOTT: We're here. MIKE: No, use this.

GERTIE: You could make all sorts of things.

Okay. We're here.

We are here.

ELLIOTT: Where are you from?

(E.T. MOANS)

I don't like his feet.

They're only feet, you little twerp.

He's trying to tell us something.

ELLIOTT: Earth.

Home.

ELLIOTT: Home.

MAN: You think this house?

(E.T. MOANING)

MIKE: Did you explain school to him?

ELLIOTT: How do you explain school to higher intelligence?

MIKE: Maybe he's not that smart. Maybe he's a worker bee who only knows how to push buttons. ELLIOTT: He's too smart.

MIKE: Okay, I just hope we don't wake up on Mars or something, surrounded by millions of little squashy guys.

(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS)

GIRL: Hi, Elliott.

Hey, Elliott, where's your goblin? Shut up.

Did he come back?

Well, did he?

Yeah, he came back.

But he's not a goblin. He's a spaceman.

(ALL EXCLAIMING SARCASTICALLY)

As in extraterrestrial.

Where's he from? Uranus? Get it? Your anus? (SCHOOL BUS HONKING HORN)

He doesn't get it, Ty. Get it? Your anus?

He doesn't get it. You're so immature.

And you're a sine supremus.

Zero charisma. Sine supremus.

Shut up, Greg!

You wimp.

(E.T. SIGHS)

TEACHER: Okay, boys and girls, today we will be doing the actual frog dissection for which we've been preparing.

And you will find many similarities.

As you get into the dissection, you will discover that the anatomy...


(HARVEY GROWLS)

(HARVEY WHINES)

TEACHER: The scalpel is very sharp.

Use discretion when you are cutting.

There will be very little blood. There may be a few body fluids.

(E.T. SNIFFING)


E. T: Ugh.

(OPENS CAN)

TEACHER: As we get started with the dissection... (BELCHES)

ALL: Ew! ...remember that the things that you are writing down...

(BELCHES)

TEACHER: One thing that you should be looking for during the dissection is to locate the heart and notice that it is still beating.

(E.T. EXCLAIMS)

TEACHER: I'm going to once more emphasize the similarities of those things which we see in the...

(GRUNTS)

TEACHER: Similarities with human anatomy... (GRUNTS)

First of all, here's the heart...

(CHUCKLES DRUNKENLY)

The intestines will be going through their peristaltic action.

ELECTRONIC TOY: X-W-V-U.

A-F-P.

That is incorrect. The correct spelling of nuisance is N-U-I-S-A-N-C-E.

(GASPS)

(EXCLAIMS IN FEAR)

They're pulling us up.

TEACHER: Class, these are the cotton balls with the chloroform.

And as soon as I get them all in, be sure and put the lid on right away.

ALL: Ew! That's it.

That will start them going to sleep.

And they won't feel anything. They won't be hurt.

It'll take a little while.

If you don't want to watch them, you don't have to.

(FROGS CROAK)

Say hi.

Can you talk?

Can you say hi?

(YAWNING)

(BURPS)

GIRL ON TV: Hello.

Uncle Ralph!

It's Uncle Ralph, long distance from California!

I'll talk fast. This call must be expensive.

RALPH: No, no, no, no. If I call anytime on Saturday without an operator, I can talk for five minutes for 85 cents plus tax.

If I talk less, I pay less.

Let me talk to that little fella.

GIRL: Lou, it's Uncle Ralph.

LOU: Hello, Uncle Ralph.

(SIGHS)

Hmm.

Save him.

Run for your life! Back to the river! Back to the forest!

ELLIOTT: Run! I want to save you!

Let's get out of here!

I got to let him go! (STRAINING)

You've got to save him!

Can you say E. T?

E.T.

(LAUGHS)

E.T. E.T. E.T.

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: Phone.

Phone?

He said "phone"?

Can't you understand English? He said "phone."

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

E.T.

CHILD: Any one you want. SIBLING: Spiderman...

MOTHER: I'm fine. We'lljust put a smile on our face and try to get through the evening. That's all I want to do.

WOMAN: We can't ask Cathy to go trick-or-treating in the same old sheet she wore last year.

ELLIOTT: Now I wish I would've listened in science.

Think, Michael.

MIKE: I guess we should just grab anything that looks like he could make a machine out of.

ELLIOTT: What would make a radar?

MIKE: How the hell do I know? You're the genius here.

You have absolute power, remember?

"I found him. He belongs to me."

You know, Elliott, he doesn't look too good anymore. Don't say that! We're fine!

What's all this "we" stuff?

MIKE: You say "we" all the time now.

Really, Elliott, I think he may be getting sick. ELLIOTT: Look, he's fine.

MIKE: Okay, okay. Forget I mentioned it.

MIKE: Grab that Fuzzbuster.

Dad's shirt.

(CHUCKLES)

Remember when he used to take us out to the ball games and take us to the movies, and we'd have popcorn fights?

MIKE: We'll do that again, Elliott. ELLIOTT: Sure.

MIKE: Listen to how he's breathing. (STRAINED BREATHING)

ELLIOTT: It's going to work.

MIKE: What's he feeling now?

ELLIOTT: Okay. Now, you know the plans by heart, don't you?

Meet you at the lookout.

At the lookout. I'm not stupid, you know.

MARY: Listen, buster. You won't get four blocks in this neighborhood dressed like that.

MIKE: Please. MARY: No, and that is final.

You are not going as a terrorist.

ELLIOTT: E.T., it's working.

It's working!

Home.

You did it!

It's working!

Home.

(SHOUTING JOYFULLY) ELLIOTT: E.T., it's working!

(KEYS JANGLING)

(ELECTRONIC BEEPING)

Check the door on the left.

ELLIOTT: We have to go now, E.T.

We're so late already.

(COUGHS)

We have to go home now, E.T.

(E.T. MOANS)

You should give them some time.

Ouch.

You could be happy here.

I could take care of you.

ELLIOTT: I wouldn't let anybody hurt you.

We could grow up together, E.T.

Home.


(COUGHS)

(WHISPERS) E. T?

E. T?

COP: How was he dressed when last seen?

He was dressed as a hunchback.

COP: Hunchback.

Is there anything to indicate that he might have run away?

Any family problems or recent arguments?

My husband and I just separated recently and it hasn't been easy on the children, but...

GERTIE: My father's in Mexico.

But run away, I...

Where would he have gone? (SOBS)

MIKE: Elliott.

MARY: (SOBBING) Oh, Elliott!

(YELLING) Don't ever do this again, Elliott!

Oh, my. You're so hot.

Run up and draw him a bath. Quick, Gert.

(WHISPERING) MARY: Sorry I yelled at you.

(TEARFULLY) Thanks very much for all your trouble.

Is he here?

(SOBBING) You've got to find him, Mike. MIKE: Where is he?

In the forest.

At the bald spot.

You've got to find him.


(TIRES SQUEALING)

(SHOUTING) E.T.!

E.T.!

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

(E.T. MOANS)

No!

No! (RACCOON CHITTERING)

(HELICOPTER HOVERING)

(KEYS JANGLING)

Mom, would you come with me?

MARY: What is it?

Mary, just come with me.

Michael, what?

Mom, remember the goblin? Michael, what are you talking about?

Just swear the most excellent promise you can make.

Michael.

(LAUGHS)

That's terrific.

Mom.

We're sick.

I think we're dying.

(GASPS)

MARY: Michael. MIKE: Mom, it's okay.

(E.T. GROANS)

Downstairs.

He's not going to hurt you, Mom.

He's not gonna hurt you.

MARY: Michael, get her downstairs.

It's the man from the moon.

The man from the moon!

ELLIOTT: You don't know him! You don't know him!

(E.T. CRYING OUT)

We can't leave him alone.

(E.T. CRYING)

(KEYS JANGLING)

MAN ON INTERCOM: The collagen unit, report to the blue level immediately.


(KEYS JANGLING)

DOCTOR 1: Does he sleep at night?

MARY: I don't know. I don't know.

What's the matter with Elliott?

DOCTOR 2: Have you noticed any surface sweating? MARY: No.

Has it lost any hair? GERTIE: He never had any hair.

DOCTOR 1: Are the children all right? MARY: Yes.

PSYCHIATRIST: Did it ever build anything or write anything down?

MIKE: Uh... No.

Would you say it has the ability to manipulate its own environment?

He's smart. He communicates through Elliott.

Elliott thinks its thoughts.

No. Elliott feels his feelings.

SCIENTIST 1: We've identified his primary carrier protein by electrophoresis.

It's definitely not albumin.

SCIENTIST 2: Testing shows no deficit. Some F&F. HTS test...

SCIENTIST 3: EEG analysis shows complete coherence and synchronization of brainwave activity between both subjects.

DOCTOR 1: Skin biopsy reveals 9 millimeters of...

WOMAN ON INTERCOM: Read isotonic.

Nitrates. 255 million equivalent.

DOCTOR 2: Better do IV and oral contrast.

If there's no response, let's move to hypertonic saline.

DOCTOR 3: We have meta-starch available.

DOCTOR 2: Cut five per kilo.

DOCTOR 3: CVP line could help.

DOCTOR 2: I think you get more information with this one gain.

ELLIOTT: You have no right to do this. You're scaring him.

You're scaring him!

DOCTOR 2: Respiratory rate, 12.

DOCTOR 4: Good air entry but decreased tidal volume on the boy.

Put him on O2 five liters by nasal cannula and draw blood gas in 20 minutes.

DOCTOR 2: Temperature's dropped from 20 to 17 degrees centigrade.

DOCTOR 3: Get a hypothermia blanket...

ELLIOTT: Please leave him alone.

Can you leave him alone? I can take care of him.

DOCTOR 2: Get a Doppler-scope in here and set me up for a 2D cardiac echo.

DOCTOR 1: Skin is cool and diaphoretic.

DOCTOR 2: He's not refusing at all. He needs inotropic support.

DOCTOR 4: PH is down to 7.03. He's got metabolic acidosis.

It could be sepsis.

DOCTOR 3: We've drawn two sets of blood cultures.

DOCTOR 2: He needs broad-spectrum coverage. How about amp, gen, flagyl?

(TAPPING ON GLASS)

KEYS: Elliott.

I've been to the forest.

MILITARY DOCTOR: He shouldn't talk now.

Well, he has to talk now, Major.

Elliott, that machine, what does it do?

(VERY WEAKLY) The communicator?

Is it still working?

KEYS: It's doing something.

What?

I really shouldn't tell.

(BREATHLESSLY) He came to me.

He came to me.

Elliott, 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?

He needs to go home.

He's calling his people and I don't know where they are.

He needs to go home.

Elliott, I don't think that he was left here intentionally.

But his being here is a miracle, Elliott.

It's a miracle.

And you did the best that anybody could do.

I'm glad he met you first.

DOCTOR 1: He's got DNA. Incredible.

DOCTOR 1: He's got DNA. ALL: What?

DOCTOR 1: He doesn't have four nucleotides like we do. He has six.

DOCTOR 2: I've got de-synchronization of the two brainwave activities.

DOCTOR 3: What are they?

E.T.!

NURSE 1: The boy's condition is stabilizing. His blood pressure's coming back up.

E.T.

E.T. (HOARSELY): Elliott.

DOCTOR 4: He's speaking. NURSE 2: He's talking.

E.T., stay with me.

Please.

E. T: Stay.

ELLIOTT: Together.

(GASPING FOR BREATH) I'll be right here.

I'll be right here.

E. T: Stay.

Elliott.

Stay.

The creature's pressure is bottoming out. His complexes are slow and widening.

DOCTOR 4: How's the boy?

He's converting back to normal sinus rhythm.

DOCTOR 2: They're separating. DOCTOR 4: Yes, definitely separating.

DOCTOR 3: Boy and creature are separating.

KEYS: What does that mean? NURSE 1: The boy's coming back. We're losing E.T.

E.T., answer me, please.

DOCTOR 4: Everything is going to be fine. Please.

DOCTOR 4: Just relax.


(BIRDS CHIRPING)

No!

E.T., don't go! (ALARM RINGING)

No blood pressure. He's got no pulse or respiration.

DOCTOR 1: We can't get a pulse or blood pressure on the creature.

NURSE: It doesn't look like he's breathing.

(E.T. GROANS)

ELLIOTT: Leave him alone! You're killing him!

Leave him alone!

DOCTOR 2: Let's move it!

DOCTOR 1: Get the boy out of here. Get him away.

(ELLIOTT SHOUTING) Stop it! You're killing him! You're killing him!

You're killing him! You're killing him!

You're killing him! He came to me!

DOCTOR 1: Any pulses? Any pulses?

DOCTOR 2: Okay, let's go. He came to me!

(ALL TALKING INDISTINCTLY)

NURSE: Minimal breath sounds.

Calm down. Calm down. Calm...

Let's try some bretylium. Can we have some bretylium, please?

Getting a pulse?

DOCTOR 3: Compressed air. Compressed air's fine.

DOCTOR 2: Thank you.

All IV push.

He's not ventilating.

His pupils are fixed and dilated.

How about some more drugs?

Quiet.

Defibrillate him.

DOCTOR 4: Everybody, stand clear. DOCTOR 1: Clear.

DOCTOR 2: We're losing him.

DOCTOR 1: One more time.

Quiet.

DOCTOR 4: It's still v-fib. DOCTOR 1: Okay, let's go.

Okay. Let's go. Let's go.

DOCTOR 3: Quiet.

MARY: Elliott?

Mom.

DOCTOR 3: Try calcium.

DOCTOR 1: He needs some calcium in his body.

DOCTOR 2: Let's continue CPR, please.

(POLICE RADIO CHATTER)

COP: Would you people stand back?

Something's happening.

Ooh, they're going to die. Shut up, Greg.

Something is definitely happening.

DOCTOR 2: Anybody have any ideas? DOCTOR 1: EKG's flat.

DOCTOR 1: EKG's flat. MILITARY DOCTOR: Okay, I'm going to call it.

DOCTOR 1: I think he's dead. DOCTOR 2: No. I don't know.

MILITARY DOCTOR: All right. I'm calling it. What time do you have?

NURSE: 1536.

MILITARY DOCTOR: 15 hours, 36 minutes.

Okay.

Let's pack him in ice.

Let's leave.


Is he dead, Mama?

I think so, sweetheart.

Can we wish for him to come back?

Yeah.

I wish.

I wish, too.

MARY: Come on, Gert. We'll wait for Elliott in the front room.

DOCTOR: Cardiac arrest was terminated at 1500 hours and 36 minutes.

He received intravenous lidocaine, intravenous epinephrine, a lidocaine drip, 2.7% sodium-chloride solution, catheters from the "A" line.

And the intravenous line should be sent for culture.

He was monitored with an EEG and an EKG.

He was defibrillated...

KEYS: They're going to have to take him away now.

They're just gonna cut him all up.

Would you like to spend some time alone with him?

(DOCTOR CONTINUING HIS REPORT)

DOCTOR: Could we all step out for a minute, please?


Look at what they've done to you.

I'm so sorry.

You must be dead

because I don't know how to feel.

I can't feel anything anymore.

You've gone someplace else now.

I'll believe in you all my life.

Every day.

E.T.,

I love you.


Oh, my God.

E.T. Phone home.

(EXCLAIMS JOYFULLY) E. T: Home. Phone home.

Phone home.

Does this mean they're coming?

Yes.

(EXCLAIMS IN SHOCK)

E. T: E.T. Phone home. E.T. Phone home.

(WHISPERING) ELLIOTT: Stay.

Shut up.

E. T: Phone.

E. T: Phone home. ELLIOTT: Quiet!

(MUFFLED) E.T. Phone home.

Phone home.

Phone home. Elliott.

Elliott. Elliott. Elliott.

Elliott?

(PRETENDING TO CRY)

Elliott? No.

Elliott, why don't you come with me? No. No.

It's all right. No, no.

KEYS: Lt'll be all right. (ELLIOTT PRETENDING TO CRY)

KEYS: Would you like the flowers? (CONTINUES FAKE CRYING)

He's alive! He's alive! (EXCLAIMS IN EXCITEMENT)

(BANGS HEAD)

(INAUDIBLE)

Are they gone, Mama?

MARY: Who's gone, honey? GERTIE: The boys.

What boys?

I'm supposed to give you this note when they're gone.

Give it to me now, Gertie.

Oh, my God.

Give me a hand with this.

(EXCLAIMS IN SURPRISE)

Where's your mask? It's back here.

Well, get it on! I'm trying!

Hey, who are you?

I'm driving.

Open the door, son.

There's a guy out here. What do I do?

What are you waiting for? Let's go!

ELLIOTT: Well, let's get out of here, Michael!

I've never driven forward before!

(STARTS ENGINE)

(HORN HONKING)

Get the bikes. Meet us at the playground at the top of the hill.

GREG: Let's do it!

ELLIOTT: Come on, Michael! Go, go, go!

We're all gonna die, and they're never gonna give me my license.

(BOTH EXCLAIMING IN SURPRISE)

MIKE: Where's the playground? It's near the preschool!

Where's that? I don't know streets. Mom always drives me.

Son of a bitch.

(BOTH EXCLAIMING FRANTICALLY)


Where are you going? To the spaceship.

Spaceship? To the spaceship to the moon.

MARY: Quiet!

Oh, my God.

MAN: Stop the van!

MAN: Don't pull them off!

(TIRES SQUEALING)

MAN: That did it!


(RINGING)


Okay. He's a man from outer space and we're taking him to his spaceship.

Well, can't he just beam up?

This is reality, Greg.

AGENT: Keep her back! MARY: No!

AGENT: Hold her back! MARY: No guns! They're children!

MARY: No! No! No!

AGENT: Where are they? MARY: No!

AGENT: There's nobody here.

(E.T. GROANING)

Where are we going?

To the forest!

(POLICE SIREN WAILING)

Follow me!

(CAR TIRES SQUEALING)

(BRAKES SQUEALING)

(TIRES SQUEALING)


We got them, at the bottom of the hill.

(TIRES SQUEALING)

(TIRES SCREECHING)

This is Unit 302.

We've cut the kids off at the bottom of the hill. Send backup units.

(EXCLAIMS IN SURPRISE)

(TIRES SQUEALING)

(E.T. EXCLAIMING)

Let's split up.

Okay!

Hang on!


We made it! Oh, shit!


Whoa! Whoa!

Tell me when it's over!


(GASPS)

(RINGING)

Ah.

Home.


(SPACESHIP ENGINE SLOWING DOWN)

GERTIE: (SHOUTING) Stop the car, Mama!

They're over there! They're over there!

I just wanted to say goodbye.

MIKE: He doesn't know goodbye.

E. T: Be good.

Yes.

(KISSES)

Ah.

Thank you.

You're welcome.


Come.

Stay.

(E.T. SIGHS)

Bye.
