Scene 36

  • Lacombe signals it with the sign language for the five-tonal phrase. The alien signals the signs back. Lacombe and the extraterrestrial smile at each other.
  • The ET looks out at the assembled humans with a searching curiosity and compassion before returning to the ship.
  • The mother ship slowly lifts off as the government officials watch, and Barry solemnly calls out "bye" to his new extraterrestrial pals.
  • The five-tone theme swells into a full, gorgeous orchestral arrangement—a fitting accompaniment to the majestic craft lifting into the skies.
