ET's trip across the moon in the basket of Elliott's bicycle to the strings of John Williams' luminous score has been named the most memorable scene ever in a century of movie-making by Universal Studios.
The film - E.T: The Extra Terrestrial to give it its proper due - which audiences first flocked to in 1982, still captures hearts, with its friendly, anxious alien keen to "Phone Home" and his earthling friend eager to help him.
In a poll commissioned by the studio giant to celebrate its centenary, film fans rated the much-copied, paraphrased but never equaled comment by Roy Scheider in Jaws when he sees an ominous shadow in the water: "You're gonna need a bigger boat."
And in a testament to the powers of one Mr Steven Spielberg to entrance his audiences, third place went to Doc Brown's amazing powers with electricity, powering up a DeLorean with a bolt of lightning, and helping Michael J Fox travel Back To The Future.
And here the top ten unmissable Universal moments - what's YOUR favourite? Let us know below...
