Special Sub-Topic: The Ultimate "E.T." - Part 1
|What are ET's people collecting at the beginning of the movie?|
plants. I wonder how many places these aliens have visited to get so many different plants.
|What is the name of the song that is playing on the radio at the beginning of the movie?|
Papa Oom Mow Mow. This was sung by the Beach Boys.
|What is the name of Elliott's older brother?|
Mike. Elliott also has a younger sister, Gertie.
|What are the names of Elliott's brothers' three friends?|
Tyler, Greg, and Steve. These are the only friends of any character mentioned in the movie.
|What actors play Elliott's brother and his three friends?|
Robert Macnaughton, C. Thomas Howell, Sean Frye, and K.C. Martel. C. Thomas Howell was originally supposed to be a stunt kid.
|What do the older boys want on their pizza?|
"Everything but the little fishies". Greg wants pepperoni and sausage but does not object when Tyler yells "everything but the little fishes" to Elliott.
|What does Mike say to his mom when they go outside to investigate what Elliott saw?|
"You stay here Mom, we'll check it out". Mike actually sings this line in the movie.
|What does Mike think made the tracks they find in the shed?|
coyote. If you look at this scene closely, you will see Tyler is croutching right in front of where ET should be, yet no one sees him.
|What time did Elliott wake up the night he first goes outside and sees ET?|
2:01 a.m.. How many 10-year-old children do you know that get up and go outside at 2:01 in the morning when they can't sleep?
|Where does Elliott first actually see ET?|
in the cornfield. Elliott interacts with E.T. in the shed but never actually sees him.
|What kind of candy does Elliot use to lure ET?|
Reese's Pieces. It was originally M&M's, but later was changed to Reese's Pieces.
|Elliot takes ET to his room.|
t. What would you do with an alien? I certainly wouldn't bring it in my house!
|How does Elliot get to stay home from school?|
he fakes illness. I myself don't think he did a very good job of faking.
|What color are the blinds in Elliot's room?|
rainbow. Who do you know who has rainbow blinds? How about Rainbow Brite?
|How many army men does Elliot show ET in his room?|
6. My personal favorite is Snaggletooth.
|Who "eats the shark" when Elliot is showing ET his fish?|
no one. Elliot also shows ET a fake peanut that is a bank.
|What happens to Elliot when ET gets scared, drops the umbrella, and it opens?|
Elliot is scared too.. This is the first time you really see ET and Elliot sharing emotions.
|Mike tells Elliot that one of his friends acheived a high score on a video game. Who is the friend, what is the game, and what was his score?|
Tyler, Asteroids, 69,000. Tyler must be pretty good at video games!
|What is Gertie's reaction when she first sees ET?|
she screams. This is what I would do. How about you?
|What joke does Tyler make when he and Greg are talking to Mike and Elliot before school?|
ET is from "Your" "Anus". Greg follows this by telling Tyler that Elliot doesn't get it but Tyler repeats it again.
