A troubled child summons the courage to help a friendly alien escape Earth and return to his home world.
Coincidentally, the first and last letters of "Elliott" are "E" and "T".
Michael: Oh, great.
Steve: So you got an arrow right in your chest.
In the 20th Aniversary Edition, when Eliott is showing E.T. the bathroom and is then on the phone with his mother, the Coke can changes designs. At first, it is the older version from 1982, then it changes to the updated 2002 can design. It switches back and forth for the entire length of the scene.
At the very end of the credits for the 2002 edition, the classic "When in Hollywood, visit Universal Studios" advertisement from the early 1980's is still retained.
