A troubled child summons the courage to help a friendly alien escape Earth and return to his home world.
Elliott tells Gertie that only kids can see E.T. so she will keep him a secret. He's unintentionally correct; a recurring gag throughout the film is their mother Mary looking at or walking right past E.T. without noticing.
Michael: Oh, great.
Steve: So you got an arrow right in your chest.
Right before E.T. reads the Buck Rogers comic he yawns and rubs his head. While he is doing this, you can just barely see the crew moving in the corner of the oven reflection.
The Universal logo is run backwards in the original 1982 cut.
