E.T. The Extra Terrestrial! Elliott, Ouch, Phone Home, could have all been used as quotes. I had to include the second picture when Gertie dressed him up, it's so funny. Such a great movie. I remember the whole family going to see it in the theater in Provo. I remember Matt's little ET shirt when he was a baby, then Booker inherited it. If you haven't seen it lately, you should. Booker and I rented it a couple years ago, and I had forgotten what a great movie it is. The only bad thing about the movie is the awful Neil Diamond song it inspired.
Here are a couple little trivia things about the movie. The character ET is based on an imaginary friend Steven Spielberg made up after his parents got divorced when he was a kid. And M&M's were supposed to be the candy used in the movie, but when the executives of Mars saw the ET character, they pulled out. They thought he was so ugly, they didn't want anything to do with it. So Hershey offered their new candy Recess Pieces, and Hershey profits went up 65% that year. I imagine a couple people may have lost their jobs at Mars.
I'm surprised at how few guesses I had! Amy got it right first! Yay Amy! Jeanine got it second then Dan. That is all the right guesses I got. Emily thought it might be Forrest Gump at first, then she decided it wasn't and it might be either Peter Pan or Hook. Nice try Em, but no.
Here is this week's movie quote:
I can't sleep anymore. It's too much like death.
