Michael: Don't get so heavy. I swear.
Elliott: O.K., stand over there. You'd better take off your shoulder pads. You might scare him. And close your eyes.

Elliott: Ha! Ha!
E.T.: E.T.! E.T.! E.T.! Be good.

Michael: How the hell do I know? You're the genius here. You have absolute power, remember? [imitating Elliott] I found him, he belongs to me! You know, Elliott, he doesn't look too good anymore.
Elliott: Don't say that, we're fine!
Michael: What's all this "we" stuff? You say "we" all the time now. Really, Elliott, I think he might be getting kind of sick.

[Michael gently strokes E.T.'s head]

E.T.: [after touching his finger to Elliott's forehead, his fingertip glows] I'll be right here.

Gertie: Are they gone, mama.
Mary: Who's gone, honey?
Gertie: The boys?
Mary: What boys?
Gertie: I'm supposed to give this note to you when they're gone.

Keys: Elliott, I've been to the forest... Elliott, that machine. What does it do?
Elliott: 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: 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?
Elliott: He needs to go home. He's calling his people and I don't know where they are. He needs to go home.
Keys: 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.

Keys: They're gonna have to take him away now.
Elliott: They're just gonna cut him all up.
Keys: Would you like to spend some time alone with him?
[Elliott is left alone with E.T.]
Elliott: Look at what they've done to you. I'm so sorry. You must be dead, 'cause 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.
[E.T.'s heart light glows and he is revived]
E.T.: E.T. phone home. Phone home, phone home.

Mary: Hi, honey, how do you feel? What happened in here?
Elliott: Oh, you mean my room?
Mary: This is no room, this is an accident.
Elliott: Well, I'm, um, reorganizing.
Mary: I can see that. Put those shelves back on the wall. Get your toys off the floor. Make your bed since you're not using it. Well, you're feeling much better, I see. Would you guys mind keeping an eye on Gertie for me while I take a shower? [kisses Elliott's forehead]
Elliott: Absolutely. Bye, Mom.
