Elliot: [seeing E.T. in a dress, with a wig and jewelry] Oh, God!
Elliot: [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?
Elliot: E.T., can you say that? Can you say ‘E.T.’? E.T.
E.T.: Eeee Teee.
Elliot: [Elliot laughs in amazement]
E.T.: E.T.! E.T.! E.T.! Be good.
Gertie: “Be good”! I taught him that too!
Elliot: 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.
Elliot: ‘Phone’? He said ‘phone’? He said ‘phone’?
Gertie: Can’t you understand English? He said ‘phone’.
E.T.: [points to closet] Home?
Elliot: 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.
Elliot: E.T. phone home.
[understanding what he means]
Elliot: E.T. phone home!
Gertie: He wants to call somebody.
