Earth was invaded by a lovable, whimsical alien when "E.T. the Extra Terrestrial" hit the big screen in 1982. We laugh and cried and cheered at this bigger-than-life adventure, and left movie theaters touched by a small boy's encounter with another world.


Watch the video: Me at Elliott's House (E.T. the Extra Terrestrial Film Location). In this short video I visit the house used as Elliott and his family's home (Tujunga, CA).

//quotes

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

Gertie: Mama, he can talk!

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


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


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.


Gertie: Here he is. [Mary hits E.T. with the refrigerator door]

Mary:[absently] Here's who?

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


Elliott: E.T., can you say that? Can you say 'E.T.'? E.T.

E.T.: Eeee Teee.

Elliott: Ha! Ha! [Elliot laughs in amazement]

E.T.: E.T.! E.T.! E.T.! Be good.

Gertie: "Be good"! I taught him that too!


Gertie: Here he is. [Mary hits E.T. with the refrigerator door]

Mary: [absently] Here's who?

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


Beeee good. • E.T.


Mary: If you ever see it again, whatever it is, don't touch it. Just call me and we'll have somebody come down and take it away.

Gertie: Like the dogcatcher?

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


Tyler: Where is he from, Uranus? Get it? Your anus?

Greg: He doesn't get it, Ty.

Tyler: Get it? Your anus?

Greg: He doesn't get it.

Elliott: Your so immature!


I’ll... Be... Right... Here. • E.T.


Michael: [in awe, upon seeing E.T.] Elliott.

Elliott: I'm keeping him.

Gertie: What is it?

Elliott: He won't hurt you, Gertie. He won't hurt you, Gertie. He's not gonna hurt you.

Gertie: Is he a boy or a girl?

Elliott: He's a boy.

Gertie: Was he wearing any clothes?


Gertie: I don't like his feet.

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

His Adventure On Earth.

He is afraid. He is alone. He is three million light years from home.

The mystery. The suspense. The adventure. The call... that started it all.
