E.T. aliens



Russian Federation

Hello, Amy. Mason says in the lesson on Prometheus (5982):

“You want all the aliens to be E.T.?”. What does E.T. mean here? What does it stand for?

Great question! E.T. is a friendly alien character from a movie, also called E.T. It stands for “extra-terrestrial.” E.T. is a very famous movie in the U.S. Because E.T. is a friendly alien, Mason means that Jason wants all aliens to be friendly.

I was wondering if that reference would be clear…Sorry that it confused you!
