E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial: E.T. Phone Home
00:00:00 - 00:02:17

Gertie spends some time with E.T. and teaches him a few English words and dresses him up in a funny outfit. E.T. then becomes slightly more proficient in English and repeats the words, "phone" and "home," several times while point towards the sky. Although E.T. does not explicitly tell us his desires, we can understand through his verbal language that he wants to get in contact with his home planet.
