Okay, there's a scene in E.T. where Elliott and one of the neighborhood kids get in an argument at the bus stop.
Basically, the kid asks Elliott, "Where did he come from, Uranus?? Get it."
Elliott knows he's being insulted, and responds with, "Zero Charisma!"
To which the kid responds, "Cintus Suprimist" (At least that's what the Closed Caption on the video reads).
They call each other these names a few more times each. The question is, what the heck does "cintus suprimist" mean. "Zero Charisma" is pretty self explanatory. I imagine it's an attribute that a given character in Dungeons and Dragons might have?
Anyone care to explain "Cintus Suprimist"? My kids and I are dying to know. (web searches have been fruitless)

It is listed as "Cinus suprimus" in the screenplay.

I wondered if astronomers (such as Carl Sagan in his Cosmos series) started pronouncing it "yur-uh-nus" because of ET.... :)
