At the very end of The Fifth Element, Korben and Leeloo are stripped and placed in some kind of healing device. Is this strictly for medical purposes, or are we to believe that they engaged in sexual intercourse?

    The device is the same one used to regenerate Leeloo earlier in the film. The final shot of the film is of them making out in the same device. – phantom42 Mar 27 '13 at 21:23
  • @phantom42 thanks, sounds like the answer is "yes" then – Sandy Mar 27 '13 at 21:26

    It's fairly unambiguiys what they are doing in there if you watch carefully. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Mar 27 '13 at 22:01
  • Supposedly, we have a Word of God answer, but I can't find a real reference - just a mention on TVTropes... – Izkata Mar 27 '13 at 23:40
  • Well, I found the source of that Word of God answer: imdb, which seems to have then been copied all over the internet. But the actual interview it supposedly came from, I can't find any mention of, let alone a transcript. – Izkata Mar 28 '13 at 0:16

Yes, if you consider that "kissing and probably engaged in hoppi hoppa" is sexual intercourse.

Here a quote from the script:

283   INT.  LABORATORY

We are in the Nucleological Laboratory that gave birth to Leeloo in the
beginning of our story. The President enters the lab followed by a group
of officials in ceremonial dress.

                    MUNRO
            Mr. President, let me introduce you to
            Professor Mactilburgh, who runs the center.

                    MACTILBURGH
            It's an honor to receive you. Mr. President.

                    PRESIDENT
                (beaming)
            Yes.. Well? Where are our two heroes?

                    MACTILBURGH
            They were so tired from their ordeal that
            we put them in the reactor this morning..

                    PRESIDENT
            I have 19 more meetings after this one
            Professor..

                    PROFESSOR
            Of course.. Let me see if they're revived.

                    AIDE
            We go live in one minute, Mr. President.

Mactilburgh goes to the reactor and opens a small slot which allows him to see what is 
going on under the blue shield.

Leeloo and Korben are naked, arms wrapped around each other, kissing 
and probably engaged in hoppi hoppa.
Mactilburgh looks troubled.

                    MACTILBURGH
          I.. uh.. they need five more minutes,
          Mr. President.

Update :

In an other part of the script, they confirm exactly what is hoppi hoppa :

                      KORBEN
            You learned 900 languages in five
            minutes?!
                      LEELOO
                (pleased)
            Yes! Now it's your turn! I learned your
            language, you have to learn mine!

                      KORBEN
            I know how to say "Hello". Teach me how
            to say "Good-bye", that's all I need.

                      LEELOO
            Apipoussan!

                      KORBEN
            Apipoussan?

                      LEELOO
            Good! Do you know how we say "make love"?

                      KORBEN
                (fumbling)
            Uh...

                      LEELOO
            ...Hoppi-hoppa.
