When I was in Spanish class in 8th grade Senorita Legos made us watch the film "E.T" in Spanish and the only thing I remember from that day is when E.T. says in a super creepy voice, "E.T. telefono mi casa!" And to this day, that is the most useful Spanish I know. Well, that and the words from the song "el es no gatos en Amerika" from "American Tale." You kids are too young to remember those films. In any language.
