Noway he should have let them phone him, they had the better technology to call him. He had to build his from scratch

E.T. PULLED MORE OF MY HEARTSTRINGS AT A VERY YOUNG AGE THAN WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE BEFORE ITS CREATION. I AM 31 NOW AND I STILL FEEL MORE EMOTION THINKING ABOUT THAT MOVIE THAN ANYTHING I CAN THINK OF RIGHT NOW. HONESTLY, THE MOVIE SO PERFECTLY SPEAKS OF THE HUMAN CONDITION THAT IF E.T. HADN'T OF PHONED HOME...I THINK WE (MOST OF US ANYWAY) MIGHT STILL WONDER...ARE WE MORE THAN WE CAN SEE HERE?! THAT MOVIE REINFORCED THE INNOCENCE OF KNOWING (AS WE ALL DO AT A YOUNG AGE) THAT WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS HAVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE...AND... AAAAALLLLLL OF US BELONG AND HAVE A CONNECTION WITH EACH OTHER...HERE AND EVERYWHERE!!!!! AND IT IS AWESOME.....AND WE ARE PERRRRRFECT!!!

DEfinitely...There's no place like home!!

<p>Sure, gotta have a hobby and phoning home is a good one.</p>

<p>Depends.&nbsp; Did he try to IM them first, or email them?&nbsp; If they were so much more techinically advanced then we are, they should have know about these devices back then!!!&nbsp; They are supposed to be 'intelligent' life forms, right?</p>

<p>E.T did phone home and got in trouble with his mom for wandering away after she had told him "Stay here I'll be right back!"</p>

<p>Duh, yes... and that is not a good question.</p>

<p>Should Stephen Spielberg make a sequal to find out what happens to aliens who phone home?</p>

<p>psh he was so drunk, he phoned random strangers! he had his chance!</p>

<p>Yes he should. Evan just to say Hello or&nbsp;find out what the time difference was or what the weather was like!</p>

<p>yes, But know one was there to anwser the phone, they all went to see&nbsp; close incounters of the third kind.&nbsp; leave your name and number and I'll get back to you beep.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; hedy c.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Well if he ever does....He better not tell Mrs. E.T. that he has been hanging with a little girl.......Didn't anyone ever tell him that 12 will get him 20...hehehehehe</p>

ET should of punched Elliott in the face and then took his bike

<p>Everyone should phone home!!!</p>

<p>Yes but he forgot the patchcord.</p>

<p>Hey! Why the hell not? stop picking on the little guy.</p><br />
<p>The is&nbsp;Man always try'n to keep somebody down.</p>

<p>Only if he had enough bars.....</p>

<p>If his stupid parents took better care of him and didn't leave him stranded, he wouldn't have HAD to make that call.</p>

<p>yes he definetely should have phoned home. he wasnt making it well on earth!</p>

<p>Only if he called collect.</p>

<p>Oh hell yeah, I wouldn't want to be stuck in some government lab listening to 'W'. Why make the little cridder suffer.</p>

<p>yes he should have asked if drew could go with him</p>

<p>I'm not letting some goofy looking alien waste my ******* minutes!</p>

<p>I don't know. I blocked out most of the movie - it scarred me for life.</p>

<p>&nbsp;yes because he was dying on earth.</p>

<p>Yes.</p>

<p>I'd a let him stay if someone sends the X back in his place!</p>

<p>ET was already home. He just didn't know it yet.</p>

<p>Yes, wouldn't you if you were missing your family. He also wanted them to know where he was, and tell everyone he was alright.</p>

<p>ET should have simply stayed home.</p>
