Elliott: What do I do?
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.
Elliott: Look, he's fine, Michael!
Michael: OK, OK! Forget I mentioned it. Grab that Fuzzbuster.

Mary: Where's Elliott? I'm asking you a question.

E.T. Mom.
[Mary becomes shocked]

Mary: Yes.
Scientist: Has it built anything or write anything down?

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.

Elliott: E.T., stay with me. Please...
E.T.: ...stay.
Elliott: Together. I'll be right here. I'll be right here.
E.T.: Stay, Elliott. Stay. Stay. Stay. Stay.
Scientist: The boy's coming back. We're losing E.T.
Elliott: E.T., answer me, please. Please.
