00:02:55.45 – 00:02:57.117
(BUS APPROACHING)
00:03:19.349 – 00:03:20.599
FORREST : Hello.
00:03:21.559 – 00:03:24.228
My name's Forrest. Forrest Gump.
00:03:29.776 – 00:03:31.819
Do you want a chocolate?
00:03:34.405 – 00:03:37.825
I could eat about a million and a half of these.
00:03:38.993 – 00:03:44.206
My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates.
00:03:46.209 – 00:03:49.086
You never know what you're gonna get.
00:03:56.302 – 00:03:58.846
Those must be comfortable shoes.
00:04:00.223 – 00:04:04.893
I'll bet you could walk all day in shoes like that and not feel a thing.
00:04:07.105 – 00:04:09.565
I wish I had shoes like that.
00:04:10.232 – 00:04:11.774
My feet hurt.
00:04:12.985 – 00:04:14.652
FORREST : Mama always said there's an awful lot
00:04:14.736 – 00:04:17.947
you could tell about a person by their shoes:
00:04:19.074 – 00:04:22.034
Where they're going, where they've been.
00:04:29.293 – 00:04:31.335
I've worn lots of shoes.
00:04:34.464 – 00:04:39.26
I bet if I think about it real hard, I could remember my first pair of shoes.
00:04:42.181 – 00:04:44.807
FORREST : Mama said they'd take me anywhere.
00:04:45.601 – 00:04:48.227
She said they was my magic shoes.
00:04:48.312 – 00:04:51.48
All right, Forrest, you can open your eyes now.
00:04:58.78 – 00:05:01.24
Let's take a little walk around.
00:05:08.04 – 00:05:09.832
How do those feel?
00:05:12.794 – 00:05:14.962
His legs are strong, Mrs. Gump,
00:05:15.047 – 00:05:17.548
as strong as I've ever seen,
00:05:17.633 – 00:05:21.01
but his back is as crooked as a politician.
00:05:22.304 – 00:05:25.389
But we're gonna straighten him right up, now, aren't we, Forrest?
00:05:25.474 – 00:05:26.599
Forrest!
00:05:28.101 – 00:05:29.31
FORREST : Now, when I was a baby,
00:05:29.394 – 00:05:32.23
Mama named me after the great Civil War hero,
00:05:32.314 – 00:05:34.732
General Nathan Bedford Forrest.
00:05:34.816 – 00:05:37.026
She said we was related to him in some way.
00:05:37.11 – 00:05:38.486
And what he did was,
00:05:38.57 – 00:05:42.823
he started up this club called the Ku Klux Klan.
00:05:42.908 – 00:05:46.244
They'd all dress up in their robes and their bed sheets
00:05:46.328 – 00:05:50.665
and act like a bunch of ghosts or spooks or something.
00:05:50.749 – 00:05:54.627
They'd even put bed sheets on their horses and ride around.
00:05:54.711 – 00:05:57.755
And anyway, that's how I got my name,
00:05:57.839 – 00:05:59.257
Forrest Gump.
00:05:59.341 – 00:06:01.092
Mama said that the "Forrest" part
00:06:01.176 – 00:06:04.72
was to remind me that sometimes we all do things that,
00:06:04.805 – 00:06:07.598
well, just don't make no sense.
00:06:08.058 – 00:06:09.058
(CLANG)
00:06:13.272 – 00:06:16.774
Okay... Get it, get it...
00:06:16.858 – 00:06:19.819
Wait, is it this way? Hold on.
00:06:20.737 – 00:06:22.238
All right...
00:06:22.823 – 00:06:24.49
What are you all staring at?
00:06:24.574 – 00:06:29.036
Haven't you ever seen a little boy with braces on his legs before?
00:06:30.58 – 00:06:34.292
Don't ever let anybody tell you they're better than you, Forrest.
00:06:34.376 – 00:06:36.961
If God intended everybody to be the same,
00:06:37.045 – 00:06:39.17
he'd have given us all braces on our legs.
00:06:39.255 – 00:06:40.964
FORREST : Mama always had a way of explaining things
00:06:41.048 – 00:06:43.049
so I could understand them.
00:06:44.51 – 00:06:48.013
We lived about a quarter mile off Route 17,
00:06:48.097 – 00:06:51.141
about a half mile from the town of Greenbow, Alabama.
00:06:51.225 – 00:06:53.977
That's in the county of Greenbow.
00:06:54.061 – 00:06:58.481
Our house had been in Mama's family since her grandpa's grandpa's grandpa
00:06:58.566 – 00:07:00.483
had come across the ocean about 1,000 years ago,
00:07:00.568 – 00:07:02.485
something like that.
00:07:02.57 – 00:07:05.28
Since it was just me and Mama and we had all these empty rooms,
00:07:05.364 – 00:07:08.116
Mama decided to let those rooms out,
00:07:08.2 – 00:07:10.16
mostly to people passing through,
00:07:10.244 – 00:07:14.205
like from, oh, Mobile, Montgomery, places like that.
00:07:14.29 – 00:07:17
That's how me and Mama got money.
00:07:17.084 – 00:07:19.836
Mama was a real smart lady.
00:07:19.92 – 00:07:24.924
Remember what I told you, Forrest. You're no different than anybody else is.
00:07:27.428 – 00:07:29.804
Did you hear what I said, Forrest?
00:07:29.889 – 00:07:34.059
You're the same as everybody else. You are no different.
00:07:34.56 – 00:07:39.022
Your boy's different, Mrs. Gump.
00:07:39.106 – 00:07:41.316
Now, his IQ is 75.
00:07:42.109 – 00:07:45.236
Well, we're all different, Mr. Hancock.
00:07:48.824 – 00:07:50.867
FORREST : She wanted me to have the finest education,
00:07:50.951 – 00:07:54.871
so she took me to the Greenbow County Central School.
00:07:54.955 – 00:07:57.207
I met the principal and all.
00:07:57.708 – 00:08:00.585
I want to show you something, Mrs. Gump.
00:08:01.045 – 00:08:03.922
Now, this is normal.
00:08:04.423 – 00:08:07.717
Forrest is right here.
00:08:08.552 – 00:08:14.099
The state requires a minimum IQ of 80 to attend public school, Mrs. Gump.
00:08:14.6 – 00:08:17.477
He's gonna have to go to a special school.
00:08:17.561 – 00:08:19.687
Now, he'll be just fine.
00:08:20.481 – 00:08:22.565
What does "normal" mean, anyway?
00:08:22.65 – 00:08:26.027
He might be a bit on the slow side,
00:08:27.154 – 00:08:28.905
but my boy Forrest is gonna get
00:08:28.989 – 00:08:31.533
the same opportunities as everyone else.
00:08:31.617 – 00:08:35.412
He's not going to some special school to learn how to re-tread tires.
00:08:35.496 – 00:08:38.665
We're talking about five little points here.
00:08:40.376 – 00:08:43.002
There must be something can be done.
00:08:44.588 – 00:08:47.048
We're a progressive school system.
00:08:47.883 – 00:08:50.802
We don't want to see anybody left behind.
00:08:51.679 – 00:08:55.14
Is there a Mr. Gump, Mrs. Gump?
00:08:58.394 – 00:09:00.27
He's on vacation.
00:09:01.272 – 00:09:04.023
(GASPING AND PANTING)
00:09:17.745 – 00:09:21.54
Well, your mama sure does care about your schooling, son.
00:09:27.046 – 00:09:29.506
You don't say much, do you?
00:09:32.886 – 00:09:36.054
(GASPING AND PANTING)
00:09:41.019 – 00:09:42.978
"Finally, he had to try.
00:09:43.062 – 00:09:45.022
"It looked easy, but,
00:09:46.232 – 00:09:48.567
"oh, what happened.
00:09:48.651 – 00:09:51.653
- "First, there..." - Mama, what's "vacation" mean?
00:09:52.197 – 00:09:54.781
- Vacation? - Where Daddy went.
00:09:57.41 – 00:10:00.12
Vacation's when you go somewhere
00:10:02.499 – 00:10:04.833
and you don't ever come back.
00:10:09.172 – 00:10:12.966
FORREST : Anyway, I guess you could say me and Mama was on our own.
00:10:14.177 – 00:10:17.804
But we didn't mind. Our house was never empty.
00:10:17.889 – 00:10:20.474
There was always folks coming and going.
00:10:20.558 – 00:10:21.642
MRS. GUMP : Supper.
00:10:21.726 – 00:10:25.145
- It's supper, everyone. Forrest... - My, my. That sure looks special.
00:10:25.23 – 00:10:27.773
FORREST : Sometimes we had so many people staying with us
00:10:27.857 – 00:10:30.526
that every room was filled with travelers.
00:10:30.61 – 00:10:34.238
You know, folks living out of their suitcases
00:10:34.322 – 00:10:37.282
and hat cases and sample cases.
00:10:37.367 – 00:10:40.786
Forrest Gump, it's supper time! Forrest...
00:10:40.87 – 00:10:43.413
One time, a young man was staying with us,
00:10:43.498 – 00:10:47.125
and he had him a guitar case.
00:10:55.26 – 00:10:58.095
(SINGING HOUND DOG)
00:11:01.099 – 00:11:05.102
Forrest! I told you not to bother this nice young man.
00:11:05.186 – 00:11:06.52
ELVIS PRESLEY : Oh, no, that's all right, ma'am.
00:11:06.604 – 00:11:09.439
I was just showing him a thing or two on the guitar here.
00:11:09.524 – 00:11:12.484
All right, but your supper's ready if y'all want to eat.
00:11:12.569 – 00:11:15.529
Yeah, that sounds good. Thank you, ma'am.
00:11:16.197 – 00:11:19.783
Say, man, show me that crazy little walk you just did there.
00:11:19.867 – 00:11:21.743
Slow it down some.
00:11:21.953 – 00:11:23.787
(SINGING HOUND DOG)
00:11:23.871 – 00:11:25.789
FORREST : I liked that guitar.
00:11:26.457 – 00:11:28.208
It sounded good.
00:11:30.003 – 00:11:34.172
I started moving around to the music,
00:11:34.257 – 00:11:36.09
swinging my hips.
00:11:38.677 – 00:11:41.22
This one night, me and Mama was out shopping,
00:11:41.305 – 00:11:44.307
and we walked right by Benson's furniture and appliance store,
00:11:44.391 – 00:11:45.975
and guess what?
00:11:47.436 – 00:11:50.73
(SINGING HOUND DOG)
00:11:58.322 – 00:12:01.157
This is not for children's eyes.
00:12:03.702 – 00:12:05.494
Some years later, that handsome young man
00:12:05.579 – 00:12:08.122
who they called "The King,"
00:12:08.206 – 00:12:10.541
well, he'd sung too many songs,
00:12:11.209 – 00:12:13.753
had himself a heart attack, or something.
00:12:14.838 – 00:12:17.006
Must be hard being a king.
00:12:21.303 – 00:12:24.138
You know, it's funny how you remember some things, but some things you can't.
00:12:24.89 – 00:12:28.768
- You do your very best now, Forrest. - I sure will, Mama.
00:12:30.479 – 00:12:35.066
FORREST : I remember the bus ride on the first day of school very well.
00:12:38.612 – 00:12:40.321
Are you coming along?
00:12:40.405 – 00:12:43.908
Mama said not to be taking rides from strangers.
00:12:43.992 – 00:12:46.16
This is the bus to school.
00:12:49.122 – 00:12:51.374
I'm Forrest. Forrest Gump.
00:12:52.334 – 00:12:56.337
- I'm Dorothy Harris. - Well, now we ain't strangers anymore.
00:13:09.351 – 00:13:11.143
This seat's taken.
00:13:13.605 – 00:13:15.106
It's taken!
00:13:22.989 – 00:13:24.865
You can't sit here.
00:13:27.035 – 00:13:30.454
FORREST : You know, it's funny what a young man recollects,
00:13:30.539 – 00:13:32.915
'cause I don't remember being born.
00:13:34.543 – 00:13:36.711
I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas,
00:13:36.795 – 00:13:39.88
and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic.
00:13:39.965 – 00:13:44.677
But I do remember the first time I heard
00:13:44.761 – 00:13:47.596
the sweetest voice in the wide world.
00:13:48.098 – 00:13:50.474
JENNY : You can sit here if you want.
00:13:53.395 – 00:13:57.273
I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life.
00:13:57.983 – 00:14:00.067
She was like an angel.
00:14:00.152 – 00:14:03.069
Well, are you gonna sit down, or aren't you?
00:14:08.033 – 00:14:09.826
What's wrong with your legs?
00:14:09.91 – 00:14:14.164
Nothing at all, thank you. My legs are just fine and dandy.
00:14:15.082 – 00:14:17.25
I just sat next to her on that bus
00:14:17.334 – 00:14:19.419
and had a conversation all the way to school.
00:14:19.503 – 00:14:22.213
...my back's crooked like a question mark.
00:14:22.298 – 00:14:23.465
These are going to make me...
00:14:23.549 – 00:14:28.303
And next to Mama, no one ever talked to me or asked me questions.
00:14:28.846 – 00:14:30.805
Are you stupid or something?
00:14:30.89 – 00:14:33.892
Mama says, "Stupid is as stupid does."
00:14:35.519 – 00:14:39.189
- I'm Jenny. - I'm Forrest. Forrest Gump.
00:14:39.857 – 00:14:41.691
From that day on, we was always together.
00:14:41.776 – 00:14:44.611
Jenny and me was like peas and carrots.
00:14:48.199 – 00:14:49.824
She taught me how to climb.
00:14:49.909 – 00:14:52.619
Come on, Forrest, you can do it.
00:14:52.703 – 00:14:55.33
I showed her how to dangle.
00:14:55.414 – 00:14:57.457
"...a good little monkey and..."
00:14:57.541 – 00:15:02.462
She helped me learn how to read, and I showed her how to swing.
00:15:04.799 – 00:15:08.551
Sometimes we'd just sit out and wait for the stars.
00:15:08.636 – 00:15:13.556
- Mama's gonna worry about me. - Just stay a little longer.
00:15:14.809 – 00:15:18.561
For some reason, Jenny didn't never want to go home.
00:15:18.646 – 00:15:20.73
Okay, Jenny, I'll stay.
00:15:21.565 – 00:15:24.317
She was my most special friend.
00:15:27.738 – 00:15:29.405
My only friend.
00:15:33.202 – 00:15:36.996
Now, my mama always told me that miracles happen every day.
00:15:37.081 – 00:15:39.457
Some people don't think so, but they do.
00:15:42.503 – 00:15:44.087
Hey, dummy!
00:15:45.047 – 00:15:47.131
Are you retarded, or just plain stupid?
00:15:47.216 – 00:15:50.718
- "Look, I'm Forrest Gimp." - JENNY : Just run away, Forrest.
00:15:52.054 – 00:15:55.139
Run, Forrest! Run away! Hurry!
00:15:55.224 – 00:15:58.476
- Get the bikes! - BOY 1 : Hurry up! Let's get him!
00:15:58.561 – 00:16:01.104
- Come on! - Look out, dummy, here we come!
00:16:01.188 – 00:16:03.022
We're gonna get you!
00:16:03.983 – 00:16:07.735
Run, Forrest, run! Run, Forrest!
00:16:09.446 – 00:16:11.364
Come back here, you!
00:16:25.004 – 00:16:27.463
Run, Forrest!
00:16:27.548 – 00:16:28.965
Run!
00:17:00.163 – 00:17:03.04
FORREST : Now, you wouldn't believe it if I told you,
00:17:04.167 – 00:17:06.668
but I can run like the wind blows.
00:17:09.923 – 00:17:13.008
From that day on, if I was going somewhere,
00:17:13.843 – 00:17:15.135
I was running!
00:17:15.219 – 00:17:17.596

00:17:49.045 – 00:17:52.047

Now, remember how I told you that
00:17:57.72 – 00:18:00.639
Jenny never seemed to want to go home?
00:18:00.723 – 00:18:03.809
Well, she lived in a house that was as old as Alabama.
00:18:03.893 – 00:18:06.061
Her mama had gone up to heaven when she was five,
00:18:06.145 – 00:18:09.481
and her daddy was some kind of a farmer.
00:18:11.317 – 00:18:12.359
Jenny?
00:18:12.443 – 00:18:14.611
He was a very loving man.
00:18:15.071 – 00:18:19.324
He was always kissing and touching her and her sisters.
00:18:21.077 – 00:18:25.497
And then this one time, Jenny wasn't on the bus to go to school.
00:18:26.666 – 00:18:28.625
Jenny, why didn't you come to school today?
00:18:28.71 – 00:18:29.71

00:18:29.794 – 00:18:31.67

- MR. CURRAN : Jenny! - Come on!
00:18:34.924 – 00:18:37.467
MR. CURRAN : Jenny, where'd you run to?
00:18:38.803 – 00:18:41.471

MR. CURRAN : Jenny!
00:18:59.99 – 00:19:03.2
Dear God, make me a bird so I can fly far,
00:19:03.285 – 00:19:05.036
far, far away from here.
00:19:05.12 – 00:19:08.789
Dear God, make me a bird so I can fly far,
00:19:08.874 – 00:19:09.999
far, far away from here.
00:19:10.125 – 00:19:13.169
Mama always said that God is mysterious.
00:19:13.295 – 00:19:14.42
Jenny!
00:19:14.504 – 00:19:16.839
He didn't turn Jenny into a bird that day.
00:19:16.965 – 00:19:18.049
You'd better get back here!
00:19:18.133 – 00:19:19.633
Instead,
00:19:20.302 – 00:19:24.847
he had the police say Jenny didn't have to stay in that house no more.
00:19:25.307 – 00:19:29.018
She went to live with her grandma just over on Creekmore Avenue,
00:19:29.144 – 00:19:32.313
which made me happy, 'cause she was so close.
00:19:34.9 – 00:19:39.945
Some nights, Jenny would sneak out and come on over to my house,
00:19:40.03 – 00:19:43.157
just 'cause she said she was scared.
00:19:43.241 – 00:19:45.701
Scared of what, I don't know,
00:19:45.827 – 00:19:49.038
but I think it was her grandma's dog.
00:19:49.164 – 00:19:50.915
He was a mean dog.
00:19:51.666 – 00:19:54.376
Anyway, Jenny and me was best friends

00:31:37.867 – 00:31:39.201
Thought?
00:31:40.661 – 00:31:42.496
Hello, I'm Forrest. Forrest Gump.
00:31:42.58 – 00:31:45.582
Nobody gives a hunk of shit who you are, fuzzball!
00:31:45.708 – 00:31:48.335
You're not even a low-life, scum-sucking maggot!
00:31:48.419 – 00:31:52.38
Get your faggotty ass on the bus. You're in the Army now!
00:31:52.715 – 00:31:54.508
This seat's taken.
00:31:56.385 – 00:31:57.761
Taken.
00:32:00.681 – 00:32:03.475
FORREST : At first, it seemed like I made a mistake,
00:32:03.559 – 00:32:05.602
seeing how it was only my induction day
00:32:05.728 – 00:32:08.438
and I was already getting yelled at.
00:32:11.526 – 00:32:13.777
You can sit down if you want to.
00:32:13.903 – 00:32:17.739
I didn't know who I might meet, or what they might ask.
00:32:17.865 – 00:32:20.45
You ever been on a real shrimp boat?
00:32:20.952 – 00:32:24.579
No, but I been on a real big boat.
00:32:25.373 – 00:32:28.166
I'm talking about a shrimp-catching boat.
00:32:28.251 – 00:32:30.752
I've been working on shrimp boats all my life.
00:32:30.878 – 00:32:33.63
I started out on my uncle's boat, that's my mama's brother,
00:32:33.756 – 00:32:35.799
when I was about maybe nine.
00:32:35.925 – 00:32:40.053
I was just looking into buying a boat of my own and got drafted.
00:32:40.888 – 00:32:45.767
My given name is Benjamin Buford Blue. People call me Bubba.
00:32:46.435 – 00:32:50.063
Just like one of them old redneck boys. Can you believe that?
00:32:50.147 – 00:32:53.817
My name's Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump.
00:32:54.777 – 00:32:57.195
FORREST : So, Bubba was from Bayou La Batre, Alabama,
00:32:57.28 – 00:32:59.197
and his mama cooked shrimp,
00:33:01.45 – 00:33:04.327
and her mama before her cooked shrimp,
00:33:04.453 – 00:33:07.414
and her mama before her mama cooked shrimp, too.
00:33:07.498 – 00:33:08.707
Bubba's family knew everything
00:33:08.791 – 00:33:11.418
there was to know about the shrimping business.
00:33:11.502 – 00:33:14.546
I know everything there is to know about the shrimping business.
00:33:14.63 – 00:33:17.632
Matter of fact, I'm going into the shrimping business for myself
00:33:17.758 – 00:33:20.093
after I get out the Army.
00:33:22.763 – 00:33:23.805
Okay.
00:33:24.015 – 00:33:28.101
Gump! What's your sole purpose in this Army?
00:33:28.185 – 00:33:30.729
To do whatever you tell me, Drill Sergeant!
00:33:30.813 – 00:33:34.19
God damn it, Gump! You're a goddamn genius!
00:33:34.317 – 00:33:36.651
That's the most outstanding answer I've ever heard.
00:33:36.777 – 00:33:39.529
You must have a goddamn IQ of 160!
00:33:39.655 – 00:33:42.616
You are goddamn gifted, Private Gump!
00:33:43.618 – 00:33:45.493
Listen up, people!
00:33:45.62 – 00:33:49.788
FORREST : Now, for some reason, I fit in the Army like one of them round pegs.
00:33:49.873 – 00:33:51.123
It's not really hard.
00:33:51.207 – 00:33:54.835
You just make your bed real neat and remember to stand up straight,
00:33:54.961 – 00:33:58.923
and always answer every question with, "Yes, Drill Sergeant!"
00:33:59.007 – 00:34:00.466
DRILL SERGEANT : Is that clear?
00:34:00.55 – 00:34:02.676
- Yes, Drill Sergeant! - Yes, Drill Sergeant!
00:34:03.178 – 00:34:06.472
What you do is, you just drag your nets along the bottom.
00:34:06.556 – 00:34:10.309
On a good day, you can catch over 100 pounds of shrimp.
00:34:10.393 – 00:34:13.812
If everything goes all right, two men shrimping 10 hours,
00:34:13.897 – 00:34:16.607
less what you spend on gas, you can...
00:34:16.691 – 00:34:19.485
- Done, Drill Sergeant! - Gump!
00:34:21.863 – 00:34:24.615
Why did you put that weapon together so quickly, Gump?
00:34:24.699 – 00:34:26.367
You told me to, Drill Sergeant.
00:34:26.493 – 00:34:29.912
Jesus H. Christ, this is a new company record.
00:34:30.038 – 00:34:32.498
If it wouldn't be a waste of such a damn fine enlisted man,
00:34:32.582 – 00:34:34.875
I'd recommend you for OCS, Private Gump.
00:34:35.001 – 00:34:36.835
You are gonna be a general some day, Gump.
00:34:36.92 – 00:34:40.005
Now, disassemble your weapon and continue!
00:34:42.092 – 00:34:45.886
Anyway, like I was saying, shrimp is the fruit of the sea.
00:34:45.971 – 00:34:50.724
You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it.
00:34:50.809 – 00:34:53.811
There's shrimp kebabs, shrimp Creole...
00:34:54.104 – 00:34:58.941
...shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried.
00:34:59.275 – 00:35:02.82
There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp,
00:35:02.904 – 00:35:05.239
coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp...
00:35:05.573 – 00:35:11.537
...shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes,
00:35:11.621 – 00:35:14.665
shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich...
00:35:17.252 – 00:35:19.586
That's... That's about it.
00:35:23.299 – 00:35:26.26
FORREST : Night time in the Army is a lonely time.
00:35:27.137 – 00:35:30.764
We'd lay there in our bunks and I'd miss my mama.
00:35:31.349 – 00:35:33.851
And I'd miss Jenny.
00:35:37.772 – 00:35:41.65
Hey, Gump, get a load of the tits on her!
00:35:55.123 – 00:35:58.25
Turns out, Jenny had gotten into some trouble over
00:35:58.334 – 00:36:01.67
some photos of her in her college sweater,
00:36:01.796 – 00:36:04.339
and she was thrown out of school.
00:36:07.886 – 00:36:10.095
But that wasn't a bad thing,
00:36:10.18 – 00:36:13.766
because a man who owns a theater in Memphis, Tennessee,
00:36:13.85 – 00:36:18.895
saw those photos and offered Jenny a job singing in a show.
00:36:19.688 – 00:36:21.522
The first chance I got,
00:36:21.648 – 00:36:25.318
I took the bus up to Memphis to see her perform in that show.
00:36:25.402 – 00:36:26.903
That was Amber, Amber Flame.
00:36:26.987 – 00:36:29.447
Give her a big hand, guys. Good job, Amber.
00:36:29.531 – 00:36:32.283
And now, for your listening and viewing pleasure,
00:36:32.367 – 00:36:36.204
direct from Hollywood, California, our very own beatnik beauty,
00:36:36.33 – 00:36:39.999
let's give a big round of applause to the luscious Bobbi Dylan.
00:36:40.25 – 00:36:42.085
(AUDIENCE APPLAUDING)
00:36:42.169 – 00:36:44.42
MAN 1 : All right! MAN 2 : Bobbi!
00:36:49.301 – 00:36:53.971
(SINGING BLOWIN' IN THE WIND)
00:37:07.361 – 00:37:09.445
Her dream had come true.
00:37:10.697 – 00:37:12.698
She was a folk singer.
00:37:21.959 – 00:37:24.21
MAN 3 : Come on, baby. Shake it up. Shake it up, now.
00:37:24.294 – 00:37:25.795
MAN 4 : Hey, buddy, get her a harmonica.
00:37:26.004 – 00:37:27.588
(CROWD LAUGHING)
00:37:29.55 – 00:37:31.592
MAN 1 : Hey, honey, this ain't Captain Kangaroo.
00:37:31.718 – 00:37:34.262
Hey, honey, I got something here for you.
00:37:35.305 – 00:37:39.058
- God damn it! - Hey! Hey! Stupid jerk!
00:37:39.143 – 00:37:41.602
I'm singing a song here.
00:37:43.939 – 00:37:46.357
Polly, get out here!
00:37:46.441 – 00:37:48.151
- Shut up, there! - MAN 2 : Don't be so shy, honey.
00:37:48.235 – 00:37:49.777
JENNY : Oh, shut up!
00:37:52.447 – 00:37:55.199
Forrest, what are you doing here?
00:37:55.284 – 00:37:56.993
- What are you doing? - MAN 3 : Hey!
00:37:57.077 – 00:37:58.452
- Come on. - What are you doing?
00:37:58.579 – 00:38:00.58
Forrest, let me down!
00:38:01.915 – 00:38:02.915
(CROWD EXCLAIMING)
00:38:06.42 – 00:38:08.337
You can't keep doing this, Forrest.
00:38:08.422 – 00:38:10.506
You can't keep trying to rescue me all the time.
00:38:10.591 – 00:38:14.677
- They was trying to grab you. - A lot of people try to grab me.
00:38:15.596 – 00:38:18.764
Just... You can't keep doing this all the time.
00:38:19.266 – 00:38:22.185
I can't help it. I love you.
00:38:23.145 – 00:38:26.647
Forrest, you don't know what love is.
00:38:33.947 – 00:38:36.949
You remember that time we prayed, Forrest?
00:38:37.826 – 00:38:42.33
We prayed for God to turn me into a bird so I could fly far, far away?
00:38:44.291 – 00:38:45.666
Yes, I do.
00:38:49.629 – 00:38:52.464
You think I could fly off this bridge?
00:38:59.138 – 00:39:01.306
What do you mean, Jenny?
00:39:05.186 – 00:39:06.686
Nothing.
00:39:09.649 – 00:39:11.691
I gotta get out of here.
00:39:13.986 – 00:39:15.07
Wait, Jenny...
00:39:15.154 – 00:39:19.616
Forrest, you stay away from me, okay? You just stay away from me, please.
00:39:19.7 – 00:39:20.992
Can I have a ride?
00:39:21.077 – 00:39:22.619
- MAN : Where you going? - I don't care.
00:39:22.703 – 00:39:24.079
Get in the truck.
00:39:24.163 – 00:39:25.997
So, bye-bye, Jenny.
00:39:28.501 – 00:39:30.835
They sending me to Vietnam.
00:39:33.589 – 00:39:36.007
It's this whole other country.
00:39:38.511 – 00:39:40.512
Just hang on a minute.
00:39:41.931 – 00:39:44.975
Listen, you promise me something, okay?
00:39:45.059 – 00:39:48.395
Just, if you're ever in trouble, don't try to be brave. You just run, okay?
00:39:48.521 – 00:39:50.105
Just run away.
00:39:51.357 – 00:39:52.691
Okay.
00:39:57.571 – 00:39:58.905
Jenny.
00:40:00.783 – 00:40:03.076
I'll write you all the time.
00:40:12.211 – 00:40:15.213
FORREST : And just like that, she was gone.
00:40:31.314 – 00:40:34.649
You come back safe to me, do you hear?
00:41:17.942 – 00:41:21.904
Now, they told us that Vietnam was gonna be very different
00:41:21.988 – 00:41:24.865
from the United States of America.
00:41:24.949 – 00:41:29.995
And except for all the beer cans and the barbecue, it was.
00:41:40.131 – 00:41:43.217
Hey, I bet there's shrimp all in these waters.
00:41:43.301 – 00:41:46.47
They tell me these Vietnams is good shrimpers.
00:41:46.554 – 00:41:50.099
You know, after we win this war, and we take over everything,
00:41:50.183 – 00:41:51.392
we can get American shrimpers
00:41:51.476 – 00:41:53.227
to come out here and shrimp these waters.
00:41:53.311 – 00:41:54.853
We'll just shrimp all the time, man.
00:41:54.979 – 00:41:58.148
So much shrimp, why, you wouldn't believe it.
00:41:58.817 – 00:42:00.734
You must be my FNGs.
00:42:00.819 – 00:42:02.069
- Morning, sir! - Morning, sir!
00:42:02.153 – 00:42:04.78
Get your hands down! Do not salute me.
00:42:04.864 – 00:42:06.99
There's goddamn snipers all around this area
00:42:07.075 – 00:42:09.91
who would love to grease an officer.
00:42:09.994 – 00:42:13.497
I'm Lieutenant Dan Taylor. Welcome to Fourth Platoon.
00:42:14.374 – 00:42:16.792
What's wrong with your lip?
00:42:16.876 – 00:42:19.253
I was born with big gums, sir.
00:42:19.337 – 00:42:24.049
Yeah, well, you better tuck that in. Gonna get that caught on a trip wire.
00:42:25.218 – 00:42:26.593
Where you boys from in the world?
00:42:26.678 – 00:42:29.054
- Alabama, sir! - Alabama, sir!
00:42:29.764 – 00:42:31.265
You twins?
00:42:33.351 – 00:42:35.769
No, we are not relations, sir.
00:42:38.022 – 00:42:40.941
Look, it's pretty basic here.
00:42:41.734 – 00:42:44.194
If you stick with me and learn from the guys
00:42:44.279 – 00:42:46.947
who've been in country a while, you'll be all right.
00:42:47.031 – 00:42:48.949
There is one item of GI gear
00:42:49.033 – 00:42:53.203
that can be the difference between a live grunt and a dead grunt.
00:42:53.538 – 00:42:56.707
Socks. Cushion sole, OD green.
00:42:56.791 – 00:42:58.083
Try and keep your feet dry.
00:42:58.209 – 00:42:59.626
When we're out humping, I want you boys to remember
00:42:59.711 – 00:43:02.171
to change your socks whenever we stop.
00:43:02.255 – 00:43:05.215
The Mekong will eat a grunt's feet right off his legs.
00:43:05.3 – 00:43:07.593
Sergeant Sims, God damn it,
00:43:07.719 – 00:43:09.136
where is that sling rope I told you to order?
00:43:09.22 – 00:43:11.138
I put in the requisitions at Battalion.
00:43:11.222 – 00:43:13.223
DAN : Yeah, yeah, yeah, well, you call those sons of bitches again...
00:43:13.308 – 00:43:15.851
FORREST : Lieutenant Dan sure knew his stuff.
00:43:15.935 – 00:43:18.228
I felt real lucky he was my lieutenant.
00:43:18.98 – 00:43:22.441
He was from a long, great military tradition.
00:43:22.65 – 00:43:25.736
Somebody in his family had fought and died
00:43:26.738 – 00:43:30.991
in every single American war.
00:43:31.91 – 00:43:33.911
- God damn it, kick some ass! - I'm on it, Lieutenant.
00:43:33.995 – 00:43:35.12
Get on it!
00:43:35.246 – 00:43:38.582
I guess you could say he had a lot to live up to.
00:43:40.293 – 00:43:45.129
So, you boys are from Arkansas, huh? Well, I've been through there.
00:43:45.255 – 00:43:47.423
Little Rock's a fine town.
00:43:48.091 – 00:43:51.677
Now, go shake down your gear, see the platoon sergeant,
00:43:51.762 – 00:43:54.222
draw what you need for the field.
00:43:54.306 – 00:43:58.267
If you boys are hungry, we got steaks burning right over here.
00:43:58.352 – 00:44:01.229
Two standing orders in this platoon:
00:44:01.313 – 00:44:03.981
One, take good care of your feet,
00:44:04.107 – 00:44:09.153
two, try not to do anything stupid, like getting yourself killed.
00:44:15.619 – 00:44:17.703
I sure hope I don't let him down.
00:44:29.299 – 00:44:31.801
FORREST : I got to see a lot of the countryside.
00:44:31.885 – 00:44:34.22
We would take these real long walks.
00:44:42.688 – 00:44:46.816
And we were always looking for this guy named Charlie.
00:44:54.658 – 00:44:56.909
DAN : Hold it up! SOLDIER : Hold up, boys!
00:44:59.746 – 00:45:02.081
It wasn't always fun.
00:45:02.165 – 00:45:06.46
Lieutenant Dan was always getting these funny feelings about a rock,
00:45:06.545 – 00:45:11.632
or a trail, or the road, so he'd tell us to get down, shut up...
00:45:11.717 – 00:45:13.718
Get down! Shut up!
00:45:14.678 – 00:45:16.137
(WHISPERING)... so we did.
00:45:33.697 – 00:45:35.865
Now, I don't know much about anything,
00:45:35.949 – 00:45:39.785
but I think some of America's best young men served in this war.
00:45:39.87 – 00:45:42.58
There was Dallas, from Phoenix,
00:45:44.291 – 00:45:47.084
Cleveland, he was from Detroit.
00:45:47.21 – 00:45:49.587
(WHISPERING) Hey, Tex. Hey, Tex.
00:45:49.713 – 00:45:51.881
Man, what the hell's going on?
00:45:51.965 – 00:45:56.302
And Tex was... Well, I don't remember where Tex come from.
00:45:56.386 – 00:45:57.928
DAN : Nothing.
00:46:02.059 – 00:46:04.56
Fourth Platoon, on your feet.
00:46:04.645 – 00:46:08.356
Still got 10 klicks to go to that river. Move out.
00:46:08.44 – 00:46:10.232
Come on, move out.
00:46:12.276 – 00:46:14.694
Step it up. Look alive out there.
00:46:14.779 – 00:46:19.115
The good thing about Vietnam is there was always some place to go.
00:46:19.241 – 00:46:20.617
DAN : Fire in the hole!
00:46:24.08 – 00:46:26.414
Gump, check out that hole.
00:46:26.499 – 00:46:29.501
And there was always something to do.
00:46:29.585 – 00:46:32.754
- Mount them up. - SOLDIER : Spread out! Cover his back.
00:46:37.802 – 00:46:43.431
One day, it started raining, and it didn't quit for four months.
00:46:44.433 – 00:46:47.31
We'd been through every kind of rain there is:
00:46:47.436 – 00:46:49.979
Little bitty stinging rain,
00:46:50.69 – 00:46:53.358
and big old fat rain,
00:46:53.818 – 00:46:56.528
rain that flew in sideways.
00:46:56.612 – 00:47:00.657
And sometimes, rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.
00:47:02.451 – 00:47:04.828
Shoot, it even rained at night.
00:47:05.871 – 00:47:08.331
- Hey, Forrest. - Hey, Bubba.
00:47:08.457 – 00:47:11.751
I'm gonna lean up against you. You just lean right back against me.
00:47:11.836 – 00:47:15.672
This way, we don't have to sleep with our heads in the mud.
00:47:16.632 – 00:47:20.093
You know why we a good partnership, Forrest?
00:47:20.177 – 00:47:22.679
'Cause we be watching out for one another,
00:47:22.805 – 00:47:24.681
like brothers and stuff.
00:47:26.642 – 00:47:30.311
Hey, Forrest, there's something I've been thinking about.
00:47:30.396 – 00:47:33.398
I got a very important question to ask you.
00:47:35.025 – 00:47:38.987
How would you like to go into the shrimping business with me?
00:47:40.156 – 00:47:41.781
Okay.
00:47:41.866 – 00:47:45.326
Man, I tell you what, I got it all figured out, too.
00:47:45.411 – 00:47:48.204
So many pounds of shrimp to pay off the boat,
00:47:48.33 – 00:47:51.624
so many pounds for gas, we can just live right on the boat.
00:47:51.709 – 00:47:54.002
We ain't got to pay no rent.
00:47:54.086 – 00:47:56.171
I'll be the captain, we can just work it together,
00:47:56.255 – 00:48:00.508
split everything right down the middle. Man, I'm telling you, 50-50.
00:48:00.593 – 00:48:04.179
And, hey, Forrest, all the shrimp you can eat.
00:48:05.723 – 00:48:07.515
That's a fine idea.
00:48:08.601 – 00:48:10.727
FORREST : Bubba did have a fine idea.
00:48:14.523 – 00:48:17.609
I even wrote Jenny and told her all about it.
00:48:18.402 – 00:48:21.613
I sent her letters, not every day, but almost.
00:48:21.697 – 00:48:26.701
I told her what I was doing and asked her what she was doing,
00:48:26.786 – 00:48:29.537
and told her how I thought about her always,
00:48:30.873 – 00:48:33.833
and how I was looking forward to getting a letter from her
00:48:33.918 – 00:48:36.419
just as soon as she had the time.
00:48:38.297 – 00:48:40.798
I'd always let her know that I was okay.
00:48:42.091 – 00:48:47.262
Then, I'd sign each letter, "Love, Forrest Gump."
00:49:02.111 – 00:49:05.864
This one day, we was out walking, like always,
00:49:05.949 – 00:49:08.909
and then, just like that,
00:49:09.828 – 00:49:13.247
somebody turned off the rain and the sun come out.
00:49:16.251 – 00:49:18.085
DAN : Ambush!
00:49:18.586 – 00:49:19.962
Take cover!
00:49:20.129 – 00:49:21.505
(GUNS FIRING)
00:49:23.591 – 00:49:24.758
Get down!
00:49:24.843 – 00:49:26.301
Get the sixty!
00:49:29.472 – 00:49:31.557
Get that pig up here, God damn it!
00:49:31.641 – 00:49:33.767
Forrest, you okay?
00:49:36.98 – 00:49:39.606
Strongarm! Strongarm! Be advised, Strongarm!
00:49:40.149 – 00:49:42.568
Medic, we got a man down!
00:49:42.652 – 00:49:45.612
Strongarm, this is Leg Lima 6, over!
00:49:46.322 – 00:49:49.658
Roger, Strongarm, be advised we have incoming from the tree line
00:49:49.784 – 00:49:53.287
at points blue plus two. AKs and rockets...
00:49:53.955 – 00:49:55.747
Misfire! Misfire!
00:49:58.126 – 00:50:00.127
DAN : God damn it! Mac!
00:50:01.087 – 00:50:04.506
Get that thing... Fuck it, get it in the tree line!
00:50:05.466 – 00:50:06.633
Jesus!
00:50:06.759 – 00:50:08.969
My unit is down hard and hurting!
00:50:09.095 – 00:50:12.639
Six are pulling back to Blue Line, Leg Lima 6 out.
00:50:13.433 – 00:50:15.392
Pull back! Pull back!
00:50:15.476 – 00:50:17.603
Run! Run, Forrest!
00:50:17.687 – 00:50:20.022
- Pull back! - BUBBA : Forrest, Forrest!
00:50:20.148 – 00:50:22.733
Run, man! Run!
00:50:22.817 – 00:50:24.61
DAN : Pull back! Run!
00:50:26.446 – 00:50:28.655
Run, God damn it, run!
00:50:49.844 – 00:50:54.473
SOLDIER : Medic! Can I get a medic?
00:50:54.849 – 00:50:58.185
FORREST : I ran and ran, just like Jenny told me to.
00:51:01.564 – 00:51:05.776
I ran so far and so fast that pretty soon I was all by myself,
00:51:05.86 – 00:51:07.818
which was a bad thing.
00:51:08.362 – 00:51:09.904
Bubba!
00:51:12.032 – 00:51:15.826
Bubba was my best good friend. I had to make sure that he was okay.
00:51:19.539 – 00:51:21.582
SOLDIER 1 : Any friendlies out there?
00:51:22.542 – 00:51:24.71
SOLDIER 2 : Yeah, I've got three over here.
00:51:25.337 – 00:51:27.338
Where the hell are you?
00:51:27.923 – 00:51:29.256
Bubba?
00:51:30.342 – 00:51:33.052
And on my way back to find Bubba,
00:51:33.178 – 00:51:35.972
well, there was this boy laying on the ground.
00:51:36.056 – 00:51:37.264
Tex!
00:51:39.351 – 00:51:40.351
Okay.
00:51:40.435 – 00:51:44.397
I couldn't just let him lay there all alone, scared the way he was,
00:51:44.523 – 00:51:48.401
so I grabbed him up and run him out of there.
00:52:03.542 – 00:52:05.96
And every time I went back looking for Bubba,
00:52:06.086 – 00:52:09.588
somebody else was saying, "Help me, Forrest. Help me."
00:52:17.264 – 00:52:19.14
Can't hear... Can't hear...
00:52:21.435 – 00:52:22.727
SOLDIER : No sweat, man. Just lay back.
00:52:22.811 – 00:52:25.312
You'll be okay. You'll be okay.
00:52:27.315 – 00:52:30.359
I started to get scared that I might never find Bubba.
00:52:30.444 – 00:52:31.694
MAN ON RADIO : Over.
00:52:31.778 – 00:52:35.072
DAN : Roger, Strongarm, I know my position is danger close.
00:52:35.157 – 00:52:36.991
We got Charlie all over this area.
00:52:37.117 – 00:52:39.41
I gotta have those fast movers in here now. Over.
00:52:39.494 – 00:52:42.872
- Six, Strongarm, we want... - Lieutenant Dan, Coleman's dead!
00:52:42.956 – 00:52:44.165
I know he's dead!
00:52:44.291 – 00:52:47.126
My whole goddamn platoon is wiped out!
00:52:47.252 – 00:52:48.586
- Leg Lima 6, Leg Lima 6. - God damn it!
00:52:48.67 – 00:52:51.38
- Copy this transmission. Over. - What are you doing?
00:52:51.465 – 00:52:54.8
Just leave me here! Get away. Just leave me here! Get out!
00:52:54.926 – 00:52:57.219
Leg Lima 6, Strongarm. How copy this? Over.
00:52:57.304 – 00:52:59.93
God, I said leave me here, God damn it!
00:53:00.015 – 00:53:03.184
Leg Lima 6, Leg Lima 6, this is Strongarm, be advised
00:53:03.31 – 00:53:05.269
your fast movers are inbound at this time, over.
00:53:05.353 – 00:53:08.773
FORREST : Then, it felt like something just jumped up and bit me.
00:53:09.649 – 00:53:11.317
Something bit me!
00:53:18.2 – 00:53:20.326
You chink son of a bitch!
00:53:22.829 – 00:53:24.83
I can't leave the platoon.
00:53:24.956 – 00:53:29.877
I told you to leave me there, Gump. Forget about me. Get yourself out!
00:53:30.003 – 00:53:32.129
Did you hear what I said?
00:53:32.839 – 00:53:34.799
God damn it, put me down!
00:53:35.509 – 00:53:37.55
Get your ass out of here!
00:53:40.846 – 00:53:43.431
I didn't ask you to pull me out of there, God damn you!
00:53:43.516 – 00:53:44.849
Where the hell do you think you're going?
00:53:44.975 – 00:53:46.059
To get Bubba.
00:53:46.185 – 00:53:50.021
I got an air strike inbound right now. They're gonna nape the whole area.
00:53:50.147 – 00:53:52.524
Gump, you stay here, God damn it! That's an order!
00:53:52.65 – 00:53:55.068
I gotta find Bubba!
00:54:11.043 – 00:54:12.502
BUBBA : Forrest.
00:54:20.261 – 00:54:22.929
- Bubba. - I'm okay, Forrest.
00:54:23.722 – 00:54:25.39
I'm okay.
00:54:33.232 – 00:54:35.066
Oh, Bubba, no...
00:54:35.192 – 00:54:37.402
Nah, I'm gonna be all right.
00:54:39.321 – 00:54:41.156
(MEN CHATTERING)
00:54:45.578 – 00:54:48.246
Come on. Come on. Come on.
00:54:53.252 – 00:54:54.752
I'm okay, Forrest.
00:54:56.088 – 00:54:58.923
I'm okay, man. I'm fine.
00:55:35.961 – 00:55:39.088
DAN : Helo's inbound. Top smoke, get it out there!
00:55:40.132 – 00:55:44.636
If I'd a known this was gonna be the last time me and Bubba was gonna talk,
00:55:44.762 – 00:55:47.055
I'd of thought of something better to say.
00:55:47.139 – 00:55:48.64
Hey, Bubba.
00:55:49.767 – 00:55:51.142
Hey, Forrest.
00:55:53.479 – 00:55:56.689
Forrest, why'd this happen?
00:55:58.025 – 00:55:59.817
You got shot.
00:56:01.528 – 00:56:05.697
Then Bubba said something I won't ever forget.
00:56:06.491 – 00:56:08.158
I wanna go home.
00:56:10.161 – 00:56:12.204
Bubba was my best good friend.
00:56:13.164 – 00:56:17.709
And even I know that ain't something you can find just around the corner.
00:56:17.835 – 00:56:20.921
Bubba was gonna be a shrimping boat captain,
00:56:21.005 – 00:56:24.967
but instead he died right there by that river in Vietnam.
00:56:30.682 – 00:56:32.975
That's all I have to say about that.
00:56:35.353 – 00:56:37.521
It was a bullet, wasn't it?
00:56:39.857 – 00:56:42.526
- A bullet? - That jumped up and bit you.
00:56:44.904 – 00:56:46.989
Oh, yes, sir.
00:56:47.073 – 00:56:50.2
Bit me directly in the buttocks.
00:56:50.326 – 00:56:55.58
They said it was a million-dollar wound, but the Army must keep that money,
00:56:55.707 – 00:56:59.543
'cause I still ain't seen a nickel of that million dollars.
00:57:00.378 – 00:57:03.88
The only good thing about being wounded in the buttocks
00:57:04.007 – 00:57:05.716
is the ice cream.
00:57:05.842 – 00:57:08.427
They gave me all the ice cream I could eat.
00:57:08.553 – 00:57:09.845
And guess what?
00:57:09.929 – 00:57:13.056
A good friend of mine was in the bed right next door.
00:57:15.268 – 00:57:18.353
Lieutenant Dan, I got you some ice cream.
00:57:20.732 – 00:57:22.899
Lieutenant Dan, ice cream.
00:57:34.62 – 00:57:36.913
MALE NURSE : It's time for your bath, Lieutenant.
00:57:45.423 – 00:57:46.757
Harper!
00:57:49.969 – 00:57:52.429
Cooper, Larson,
00:57:54.64 – 00:57:55.974
Webster,
00:57:57.393 – 00:58:00.896
- Gump. Gump. - I'm Forrest Gump.
00:58:04.442 – 00:58:07.736
Kyle, Nichols,
00:58:09.947 – 00:58:15.911
McMill, Johnson, Tyler,
00:58:17.246 – 00:58:18.622
Holiday...
00:58:25.38 – 00:58:27.631
MAN ON TV : Surprise, surprise, surprise!
00:58:30.968 – 00:58:33.469
Gump, how can you watch that stupid shit?
00:58:33.553 – 00:58:35.137
- From the DMZ to the Delta... - Turn it off!
00:58:35.222 – 00:58:38.474
...you are tuned to the American Forces Vietnam Network.
00:58:38.6 – 00:58:40.935
This is Channel 6, Saigon.
00:58:43.647 – 00:58:45.314
SOLDIER : Good catch, Gump.
00:58:47.275 – 00:58:49.443
You know how to play this?
00:58:50.737 – 00:58:52.822
Come on, let me show you. Here.
00:58:54.908 – 00:58:57.243
Now, the secret to this game is,
00:58:57.327 – 00:59:03.165
no matter what happens, never ever take your eye off the ball.
00:59:06.753 – 00:59:08.087
All right.
00:59:11.425 – 00:59:15.094
For some reason, Ping-Pong came very natural to me.
00:59:15.429 – 00:59:18.347
See? Any idiot can play.
00:59:18.849 – 00:59:21.6
So, I started playing it all the time.
00:59:22.769 – 00:59:24.103
I played Ping-Pong
00:59:24.187 – 00:59:27.481
even when I didn't have anyone to play Ping-Pong with.
00:59:35.532 – 00:59:40.202
The hospital's people said it made me look like a duck in water,
00:59:40.328 – 00:59:42.163
whatever that means.
00:59:42.622 – 00:59:45.875
Even Lieutenant Dan would come and watch me play.
00:59:51.381 – 00:59:55.259
I played Ping-Pong so much, I even played it in my sleep.
01:00:03.059 – 01:00:08.147
Now, you listen to me. We all have a destiny.
01:00:08.231 – 01:00:11.275
Nothing just happens, it's all part of a plan.
01:00:11.401 – 01:00:14.069
I should have died out there with my men,
01:00:14.196 – 01:00:18.157
but now I'm nothing but a goddamn cripple,
01:00:18.241 – 01:00:21.869
a legless freak! Look! Look! Look at me!
01:00:22.621 – 01:00:23.704
Do you see that?
01:00:23.788 – 01:00:27.583
Do you know what it's like not to be able to use your legs?
01:00:30.921 – 01:00:32.546
Yes, sir, I do.
01:00:36.218 – 01:00:38.26
Did you hear what I said?
01:00:39.137 – 01:00:40.888
You cheated me.
01:00:40.972 – 01:00:42.139
I had a destiny.
01:00:42.224 – 01:00:45.768
I was supposed to die in the field, with honor!
01:00:46.436 – 01:00:50.481
That was my destiny, and you cheated me out of it!
01:01:00.116 – 01:01:02.825
Do you understand what I'm saying, Gump?
01:01:04.954 – 01:01:08.331
This wasn't supposed to happen, not to me.
01:01:10.96 – 01:01:12.627
I had a destiny.
01:01:14.588 – 01:01:18.967
I was Lieutenant Dan Taylor.
01:01:25.14 – 01:01:27.475
You're still Lieutenant Dan.
01:01:50.708 – 01:01:52.208
Look at me.
01:01:53.544 – 01:02:01.217
What am I gonna do now?
01:02:11.604 – 01:02:13.062
PFC Gump?
01:02:14.607 – 01:02:16.024
Yes, sir!
01:02:16.692 – 01:02:18.192
As you were.
01:02:18.694 – 01:02:22.53
Son, you've been awarded the Medal of Honor.
01:02:23.574 – 01:02:27.201
Guess what, Lieutenant Dan, they want to give me a...
01:02:33.959 – 01:02:37.712
Ma'am, what'd they do with Lieutenant Dan?
01:02:38.631 – 01:02:40.423
They sent him home.
01:02:46.43 – 01:02:49.182
FORREST : Two weeks later, I left Vietnam.
01:02:50.225 – 01:02:53.77
The ceremony was kicked off with a candid speech by the President
01:02:53.854 – 01:02:57.231
regarding the need for further escalation of the war in Vietnam.
01:02:57.316 – 01:02:59.442
President Johnson awarded four Medals of Honor
01:02:59.526 – 01:03:01.194
to men from each of the Armed Services.
01:03:01.278 – 01:03:04.197
America owes you a debt of gratitude, son.
01:03:06.2 – 01:03:09.994
I understand you were wounded. Where were you hit?
01:03:10.079 – 01:03:13.247
- In the buttocks, sir. - That must be a sight.
01:03:13.999 – 01:03:16.292
I'd kind of like to see that.
01:03:27.721 – 01:03:29.013
(CHUCKLING)
01:03:30.431 – 01:03:31.89
God damn, son.
01:03:34.018 – 01:03:37.854
After that, Mama went to the hotel to lay down,
01:03:37.939 – 01:03:41.441
so I went out for a walk to see our nation's capital.
01:03:41.526 – 01:03:43.068
ISABEL : Hilary, all right, I've got the vets,
01:03:43.152 – 01:03:44.653
what do you want me to do with them?
01:03:44.737 – 01:03:46.488
HILARY : What are you doing here so late?
01:03:46.572 – 01:03:50.617
It's a good thing Mama was resting, 'cause the streets was awful crowded
01:03:50.702 – 01:03:53.87
with people looking at all the statues and monuments,
01:03:53.955 – 01:03:56.581
and some of them people were loud and pushy.
01:03:56.666 – 01:03:59.626
Okay, follow me! Come on. Let's move it out.
01:04:00.461 – 01:04:03.422
Everywhere I went, I had to stand in line.
01:04:06.676 – 01:04:08.218
HILARY : Follow me, let's go!
01:04:10.012 – 01:04:11.638
Come on. Let's go.
01:04:17.687 – 01:04:19.271
Stand here.
01:04:21.733 – 01:04:24.901
Hey, you're a good man for doing this. Good!
01:04:26.195 – 01:04:27.32
Okay.
01:04:28.114 – 01:04:31.491
There was this man giving a little talk.
01:04:31.576 – 01:04:35.078
And for some reason, he was wearing an American flag for a shirt.
01:04:35.163 – 01:04:36.621
ABBIE HOFFMAN : Now, I'm gonna bring up some soldiers...
01:04:36.706 – 01:04:39.499
FORREST : And he liked to say the "F" word.
01:04:39.584 – 01:04:42.961
A lot. "F" this and "F" that.
01:04:43.045 – 01:04:45.38
And every time he said the "F" word,
01:04:45.465 – 01:04:48.216
people, for some reason, well, they'd cheer.
01:04:48.301 – 01:04:50.927
...where to stick this fucking war! Yeah!
01:04:51.012 – 01:04:52.012
(CROWD CHEERING)
01:04:52.43 – 01:04:54.765
Yeah! Yeah!
01:04:55.349 – 01:04:57.851
Come on, man, come up here, man.
01:04:58.269 – 01:05:01.605
Come on. Come on. Yeah, you! Come on. Move, move, move.
01:05:02.607 – 01:05:06.026
You can do it. Just get up there. Go on. That's it.
01:05:18.831 – 01:05:21.374
Tell us a little bit about the war, man.
01:05:21.459 – 01:05:23.21
The war in Vietnam?
01:05:23.294 – 01:05:26.213
- The war in Viet-fucking-nam! - Yeah!
01:05:26.297 – 01:05:27.297
(CROWD CHEERING)
01:05:46.567 – 01:05:47.651
MAN 1 : Peace!
01:05:48.027 – 01:05:49.402
MAN 2 : Come on, man, go!
01:05:49.695 – 01:05:51.655
MAN 3 : Come on! WOMAN 1 : Peace!
01:05:51.739 – 01:05:52.781
Well...
01:05:52.865 – 01:05:56.326
FORREST : There was only one thing I could say about the war in Vietnam.
01:05:56.41 – 01:06:01.247
...there's only one thing I can say about the war in Vietnam.
01:06:05.043 – 01:06:08.838
In Vietnam, your...

01:06:19.766 – 01:06:22.518
I'll beat your head in, you goddamn oinker!
01:06:22.602 – 01:06:25.104
Jesus Christ, what'd they do with this?
01:06:26.523 – 01:06:28.19
MAN 5 : We can't hear you!
01:06:29.901 – 01:06:31.902
MAN 6 : We can't hear anything!
01:06:32.612 – 01:06:35.114
- This one! This one! Give me that! - MAN 7 : Turn it up!
01:06:35.198 – 01:06:36.615
WOMAN 2 : Speak up!
01:06:37.409 – 01:06:38.868
That's it!
01:06:39.953 – 01:06:42.788
...and that's all I have to say about that.
01:06:50.088 – 01:06:53.048
That's so right on, man. You said it all.
01:06:54.551 – 01:06:57.052
What's your name, man?
01:06:57.137 – 01:06:59.763
My name is Forrest. Forrest Gump.
01:07:00.974 – 01:07:02.141
Forrest Gump!
01:07:02.267 – 01:07:03.642
- Gump! - Gump!
01:07:05.145 – 01:07:08.898
JENNY : Forrest! Forrest!
01:07:12.944 – 01:07:15.321
- Jenny! - Forrest!
01:07:32.088 – 01:07:34.757
Hey! Hey!
01:07:42.849 – 01:07:45.976
It was the happiest moment of my life.
01:07:48.313 – 01:07:51.69
Jenny and me were just like peas and carrots again.
01:07:53.026 – 01:07:54.61
She showed me around,
01:07:54.694 – 01:07:57.279
and even introduced me to some of her new friends.
01:07:57.364 – 01:07:58.697
Shut that blind, man.
01:07:58.823 – 01:08:01.033
And get your white ass away from that window.
01:08:01.117 – 01:08:03.202
Don't you know we in a war here?
01:08:04.037 – 01:08:05.454
Hey, man, he's cool. He's cool. He's one of us.
01:08:05.538 – 01:08:07.456
- Let me tell you about us. - Where the hell have you been?
01:08:07.54 – 01:08:09.625
Our purpose here is to protect our black leaders
01:08:09.709 – 01:08:11.46
from the racial onslaught of the pig
01:08:11.544 – 01:08:13.629
who wishes to brutalize our black leaders,
01:08:13.713 – 01:08:17.049
rape our women, and destroy our black communities.
01:08:19.97 – 01:08:21.887
Who's the baby killer?
01:08:22.013 – 01:08:24.723
This is my good friend I told you about. This is Forrest Gump.
01:08:24.808 – 01:08:26.557
Forrest, this is Wesley.
01:08:26.642 – 01:08:27.934
Wesley and I lived together in Berkeley,
01:08:28.018 – 01:08:30.645
and he's the president of the Berkeley chapter of SDS.
01:08:30.729 – 01:08:32.146
Let me tell you something else.
01:08:32.231 – 01:08:36.484
We are here to offer protection and help for all of those who need our help,
01:08:36.568 – 01:08:40.154
because we, the Black Panthers, are against the war in Vietnam.
01:08:40.239 – 01:08:43.908
Yes, we are against any war where black soldiers are sent to the frontline
01:08:43.993 – 01:08:45.91
to die for a country that hates them.
01:08:45.995 – 01:08:49.163
Yes, we are against any war where black soldiers go to fight
01:08:49.248 – 01:08:52.333
and come to be brutalized and killed in their own communities
01:08:52.418 – 01:08:54.002
as they sleep in their beds at night.
01:08:54.086 – 01:08:55.253
You are a fucking asshole!
01:08:55.337 – 01:08:58.715
Yes, we are against all these racist and imperial dog acts.
01:09:08.017 – 01:09:11.227
JENNY : Forrest! Quit it! Quit it!
01:09:13.188 – 01:09:14.439
Forrest!
01:09:15.024 – 01:09:16.774
Stop it! Stop it!
01:09:23.407 – 01:09:24.782
Oh, God...
01:09:25.617 – 01:09:28.036
I shouldn't have brought you here.
01:09:28.12 – 01:09:31.748
I should have known it was just gonna be some bullshit hassle.
01:09:32.916 – 01:09:35.543
He should not be hitting you, Jenny.
01:09:40.466 – 01:09:42.216
Come on, Forrest.
01:09:47.931 – 01:09:51.934
Sorry I had a fight in the middle of your Black Panther party.
01:09:54.813 – 01:09:57.148
He doesn't mean it when he does things like this. He doesn't.
01:09:57.232 – 01:09:59.567
I would never hurt you, Jenny.
01:10:01.403 – 01:10:03.654
I know you wouldn't, Forrest.
01:10:05.574 – 01:10:08.159
I wanted to be your boyfriend.
01:10:18.67 – 01:10:21.089
That uniform is a trip, Forrest.
01:10:22.466 – 01:10:25.676
You look handsome in it. You do.
01:10:29.765 – 01:10:31.682
- You know what? - What?
01:10:35.312 – 01:10:38.94
I'm glad we were here together in our nation's capital.
01:10:40.526 – 01:10:42.276
Me, too, Forrest.
01:10:42.361 – 01:10:47.031
We walked around all night, Jenny and me, just talking.
01:10:49.118 – 01:10:52.286
She told me about all the traveling she'd done.
01:10:52.371 – 01:10:56.957
And how she'd discovered ways to expand her mind
01:10:57.041 – 01:11:00.127
and learn how to live in harmony,
01:11:00.211 – 01:11:02.546
which must be out west somewhere,
01:11:02.63 – 01:11:04.965
'cause she made it all the way to California.
01:11:05.049 – 01:11:07.3
(SINGING) Try to love one another right now
01:11:07.385 – 01:11:08.552
HIPPIE : Hey!
01:11:09.512 – 01:11:12.055
Anybody want to go to San Francisco?
01:11:12.14 – 01:11:14.015
- I'll go. - Far out.
01:11:15.476 – 01:11:18.645
It was a very special night for the two of us.
01:11:20.231 – 01:11:22.315
I didn't want it to end.
01:11:23.109 – 01:11:25.527
I wish you wouldn't go, Jenny.
01:11:26.529 – 01:11:28.321
I have to, Forrest.
01:11:29.323 – 01:11:30.574
Jenny?
01:11:32.743 – 01:11:35.328
Things got a little out of hand.
01:11:35.413 – 01:11:39.249
It's just this war and that lying son of a bitch, Johnson!
01:11:40.918 – 01:11:43.712
I would never hurt you, you know that.
01:11:46.841 – 01:11:48.842
You know what I think?
01:11:50.344 – 01:11:55.599
I think you should go home to Greenbow, Alabama!
01:12:06.11 – 01:12:11.198
Forrest, we have very different lives, you know.
01:12:20.625 – 01:12:23.793
I want you to have this.
01:12:28.466 – 01:12:30.634
Forrest, I can't keep this.
01:12:32.303 – 01:12:36.556
I got it just by doing what you told me to do.
01:12:38.601 – 01:12:40.769
Why are you so good to me?
01:12:42.271 – 01:12:43.813
You're my girl.
01:12:45.816 – 01:12:47.943
I'll always be your girl.
01:13:28.358 – 01:13:33.195
FORREST : And just like that, she was gone, out of my life again.
01:13:34.698 – 01:13:37.032
NEIL ARMSTRONG ON TV : That's one small step for man,
01:13:39.035 – 01:13:41.87
one giant leap for mankind.
01:13:47.544 – 01:13:50.045
FORREST : I thought I was going back to Vietnam,
01:13:50.171 – 01:13:53.382
but instead, they decided the best way for me to fight the Communists
01:13:53.466 – 01:13:55.092
was to play Ping-Pong.
01:13:55.176 – 01:13:57.469
So, I was in the Special Services,
01:13:57.554 – 01:14:00.806
traveling around the country cheering up all them wounded veterans
01:14:00.89 – 01:14:03.309
and showing them how to play Ping-Pong.
01:14:03.393 – 01:14:05.311
I was so good that some years later
01:14:05.395 – 01:14:09.023
the Army decided that I should be on the All-American Ping-Pong team.
01:14:09.649 – 01:14:12.067
We were the first Americans to visit the land of China
01:14:12.152 – 01:14:14.57
in like a million years, or something like that.
01:14:14.696 – 01:14:18.115
Somebody said world peace was in our hands,
01:14:18.199 – 01:14:20.993
but all I did was play Ping-Pong.
01:14:21.077 – 01:14:24.163
When I got home, I was a national celebrity.
01:14:24.873 – 01:14:27.166
Famouser even than Captain Kangaroo.
01:14:27.25 – 01:14:29.918
Here he is, Forrest Gump, right here.
01:14:36.676 – 01:14:38.427
Mr. Gump, have a seat.
01:14:40.93 – 01:14:43.098
Forrest Gump, John Lennon.
01:14:43.767 – 01:14:45.017
- Welcome home. - You had quite a trip.
01:14:45.101 – 01:14:48.437
Can you tell us, what was China like?
01:14:51.691 – 01:14:56.945
In the land of China, people hardly got nothing at all.
01:14:57.03 – 01:14:58.614
No possessions?
01:15:01.242 – 01:15:04.453
And in China, they never go to church.
01:15:05.747 – 01:15:07.289
No religion, too?
01:15:07.374 – 01:15:08.374
Oh.
01:15:09.376 – 01:15:12.669
- Hard to imagine. - Well, it's easy if you try, Dick.
01:15:14.464 – 01:15:16.84
FORREST : Some years later, that nice young man from England
01:15:16.925 – 01:15:19.551
was on his way home to see his little boy
01:15:19.636 – 01:15:22.638
and was signing some autographs,
01:15:22.764 – 01:15:26.725
and for no particular reason at all, somebody shot him.
01:15:29.771 – 01:15:33.607
They gave you the Congressional Medal of Honor.
01:15:34.901 – 01:15:36.985
Now, that's Lieutenant Dan.
01:15:39.781 – 01:15:41.407
Lieutenant Dan!
01:15:41.491 – 01:15:45.953
They gave you the Congressional Medal of Honor!
01:15:47.831 – 01:15:49.331
Yes, sir, they surely did.
01:15:49.416 – 01:15:51.416
They gave you,
01:15:51.5 – 01:15:55.67
an imbecile, a moron who goes on television
01:15:55.754 – 01:16:00.007
and makes a fool out of himself in front of the whole damn country,
01:16:00.676 – 01:16:03.177
the Congressional Medal of Honor.
01:16:04.346 – 01:16:05.513
Yes, sir.
01:16:07.683 – 01:16:10.518
Well, then, that's just perfect!
01:16:12.438 – 01:16:14.772
Yeah, well, I just got one thing to say to that.
01:16:14.857 – 01:16:17.108
God damn bless America.
01:16:18.026 – 01:16:19.318
Hey!
01:16:21.113 – 01:16:22.447
Oh, God!
01:16:24.95 – 01:16:27.368
- Oh, God! - Lieutenant Dan!
01:16:28.495 – 01:16:31.247
Lieutenant Dan said he was living in a hotel.
01:16:31.331 – 01:16:33.291
And because he didn't have no legs,
01:16:33.375 – 01:16:36.544
he spent most of his time exercising his arms.
01:16:39.423 – 01:16:41.883
DAN : Take a right. Take a right.
01:16:44.511 – 01:16:47.054
CABBIE : Hey! Come on, already!
01:16:47.139 – 01:16:49.932
What do you do here in New York, Lieutenant Dan?
01:16:50.017 – 01:16:52.56
I'm living off the government tit.
01:16:53.061 – 01:16:54.061
(HORN HONKING)
01:16:54.188 – 01:16:55.563
Sucking it dry!
01:16:55.647 – 01:16:57.69
Hey! Hey! Hey! Are you blind?
01:16:57.774 – 01:16:59.484
- I'm walking here! - Get out of the way!
01:16:59.568 – 01:17:02.153
Get out! Come on, go! Go! Go!
01:17:09.203 – 01:17:12.955
I stayed with Lieutenant Dan and celebrated the holidays.
01:17:17.377 – 01:17:20.796
You have a great year. Hurry home and God bless you.
01:17:23.8 – 01:17:26.594
Have you found Jesus yet, Gump?
01:17:28.18 – 01:17:30.848
I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for him, sir.
01:17:30.933 – 01:17:33.851
(LAUGHING)
01:17:38.44 – 01:17:41.817
That's all these cripples, down at the VA,
01:17:41.902 – 01:17:44.32
that's all they ever talk about.
01:17:45.489 – 01:17:48.449
Jesus this and Jesus that.
01:17:49.91 – 01:17:52.203
Have I found Jesus?
01:17:52.829 – 01:17:55.831
They even had a priest come and talk to me.
01:17:56.708 – 01:18:01.379
He said God is listening, but I have to help myself.
01:18:02.756 – 01:18:05.049
How if I accept Jesus into my heart,
01:18:06.051 – 01:18:09.845
I'll get to walk beside him in the kingdom of heaven.
01:18:09.93 – 01:18:12.098
Did you hear what I said?
01:18:13.141 – 01:18:17.144
Walk beside him in the kingdom of heaven.
01:18:17.229 – 01:18:20.188
Well, kiss my crippled ass.
01:18:20.273 – 01:18:23.65
God is listening? What a crock of shit.
01:18:27.321 – 01:18:29.948
I'm going to heaven, Lieutenant Dan.
01:18:31.867 – 01:18:32.909
Oh?
01:18:37.748 – 01:18:39.124
Well,
01:18:42.086 – 01:18:45.463
before you go, why don't you get your ass down to the corner
01:18:45.548 – 01:18:48.049
- and get us another bottle of Ripple. - Yes, sir.
01:18:48.134 – 01:18:53.263
We are at approximately 45th Street in New York City at One Astor Plaza.
01:18:53.347 – 01:18:55.181
This is the site of the old Astor Hotel.
01:18:55.266 – 01:18:57.475
DAN : What the hell is in Bayou La Batre?
01:18:57.56 – 01:18:59.894
FORREST : Shrimping boats. DAN : Shrimping boats?
01:18:59.979 – 01:19:02.397
Who gives a shit about shrimping boats?
01:19:02.481 – 01:19:03.94
FORREST : I gotta buy me one of them shrimping boats,
01:19:04.025 – 01:19:05.567
soon as I have some money.
01:19:05.651 – 01:19:08.486
I made me a promise to Bubba in Vietnam
01:19:08.571 – 01:19:11.281
that as soon as the war was over, we'd go in partners.
01:19:11.365 – 01:19:14.784
He'd be the captain of the shrimping boat and I'd be his first mate.
01:19:14.869 – 01:19:18.33
But now that he's dead, that means I gotta be the captain.
01:19:18.414 – 01:19:21.124
- A shrimp boat captain. - Yes, sir.
01:19:21.208 – 01:19:23.668
A promise is a promise, Lieutenant Dan.
01:19:23.753 – 01:19:25.17
(LAUGHING)
01:19:25.463 – 01:19:27.922
Now hear this!
01:19:28.674 – 01:19:32.51
Private Gump here is gonna be a shrimp boat captain.
01:19:33.262 – 01:19:34.679
Well, I tell you what, Gilligan,
01:19:34.764 – 01:19:37.223
the day that you are a shrimp boat captain,
01:19:37.308 – 01:19:40.852
- I will come and be your first mate. - Okay.
01:19:40.936 – 01:19:45.273
If you're ever a shrimp boat captain, that's the day I'm an astronaut.
01:19:45.358 – 01:19:48.36
LENORE : Danny, what are you complaining about?
01:19:48.444 – 01:19:51.029
- What are you doing, hon? - Mr. Hot Wheels.
01:19:51.113 – 01:19:54.741
- Who's your friend? - My name is Forrest, Forrest Gump.
01:19:55.576 – 01:19:59.788
This is Cunning Carla and Long-Limbs Lenore.
01:20:00.873 – 01:20:04.084
So, where you been, baby cakes, huh? Haven't seen you around lately.
01:20:04.168 – 01:20:05.627
You know, you should have been here for Christmas,
01:20:05.711 – 01:20:07.045
'cause Tommy bought a round on the house
01:20:07.129 – 01:20:08.63
and gave everybody a turkey sandwich.
01:20:08.714 – 01:20:11.758
Well, well, I had company.
01:20:12.635 – 01:20:16.304
Hey, hey! We was just there. That's at Times Square.
01:20:16.931 – 01:20:21.059
Don't you just love New Year's? You get to start all over.
01:20:21.143 – 01:20:24.437
- CARLA : Hey, Lenore... - Everybody gets a second chance.
01:20:24.522 – 01:20:27.065
FORREST : It's funny, but in the middle of all that fun,
01:20:27.149 – 01:20:29.442
I began to think about Jenny,
01:20:30.361 – 01:20:34.823
wondering how she was spending her New Year's night out in California.
01:20:57.429 – 01:21:00.931
CROWD : Eight, seven, six, five,
01:21:01.057 – 01:21:04.518
four, three, two, one!
01:21:04.644 – 01:21:07.312
Happy New Year!

(CROWD SINGING AULD LANG SYNE)
01:21:23.788 – 01:21:26.498
Happy New Year, Lieutenant Dan!
01:22:01.785 – 01:22:05.454
What are you, stupid or something? What's your problem?
01:22:06.122 – 01:22:07.539
What's his problem?
01:22:07.624 – 01:22:09.875
Did you lose your pecker in the war or something?
01:22:09.959 – 01:22:12.002
What, is your friend stupid or something?
01:22:12.086 – 01:22:13.17
What did you say?
01:22:13.254 – 01:22:14.671
I said, is your friend stupid or something?
01:22:14.756 – 01:22:16.924
Hey! Don't call him stupid!
01:22:17.008 – 01:22:18.967
LENORE : Hey, don't you push her! DAN : You shut up!
01:22:19.052 – 01:22:21.094
- Don't you ever call him stupid! - CARLA : What's the matter, baby?
01:22:21.179 – 01:22:22.888
- Why are you so upset? - DAN : Just get the hell out of here.
01:22:22.972 – 01:22:24.056
- Stupid damn... - Get your goddamn clothes...
01:22:24.14 – 01:22:25.641
You belong in Ripley's Believe It Or Not!
01:22:25.725 – 01:22:27.601
- Get the hell out of here! - You should be in a sideshow!
01:22:27.685 – 01:22:28.727
Go on! Get out of here!
01:22:28.812 – 01:22:30.103
Come on, Lenore. We don't need this shit!
01:22:30.188 – 01:22:31.563
Get out of here!

(LAUGHING)
01:22:33.191 – 01:22:35.734
- You retard. - Loser. You freak.
01:22:41.115 – 01:22:42.324
No, no.
01:23:07.475 – 01:23:11.436
I'm sorry I ruined your New Year's Eve party, Lieutenant Dan.
01:23:12.021 – 01:23:14.314
She tasted like cigarettes.
01:23:30.497 – 01:23:32.039
FORREST : I guess Lieutenant Dan figured
01:23:32.124 – 01:23:34.959
there's some things you just can't change.
01:23:35.085 – 01:23:40.214
He didn't want to be called crippled, just like I didn't want to be called stupid.
01:23:45.721 – 01:23:47.597
Happy New Year, Gump.
01:23:52.394 – 01:23:53.769
The US Ping-Pong team
01:23:53.854 – 01:23:56.147
met with President Nixon today at an Oval Office ceremony...
01:23:56.231 – 01:23:58.983
And wouldn't you know it? A few months later,
01:23:59.067 – 01:24:03.029
they invited me and the Ping-Pong team to visit the White House.
01:24:03.113 – 01:24:05.364
So, I went, again.
01:24:06.199 – 01:24:09.66
And I met the President of the United States, again.
01:24:10.412 – 01:24:13.372
Only, this time, they didn't get us rooms in a real fancy hotel.
01:24:13.457 – 01:24:16.834
So, are you enjoying yourself in our nation's capital, young man?
01:24:16.919 – 01:24:19.921
- Yes, sir. - Well, where are you staying?
01:24:20.005 – 01:24:22.632
- It's called the Hotel Ebbott. - Oh, no, no, no, no.
01:24:22.716 – 01:24:25.843
I know of a much nicer hotel. It's brand-new, very modern.
01:24:25.928 – 01:24:27.929
I'll have my people take care of it for you.
01:24:28.555 – 01:24:29.68
Security, Frank Wills.
01:24:29.765 – 01:24:33.351
Yeah, sir, you might want to send a maintenance man
01:24:33.435 – 01:24:36.103
over to that office across the way.
01:24:36.188 – 01:24:39.065
The lights are off, and they must be looking for a fuse box or something,

'cause them flashlights, they're keeping me awake.
01:24:41.944 – 01:24:43.569
Okay, sir. I'll check it out.
01:24:43.654 – 01:24:45.363
- Thank you. - No problem.
01:24:45.447 – 01:24:47.365
- Good night. - Good night.
01:24:50.994 – 01:24:56.374
Therefore, I shall resign the presidency effective at noon tomorrow.
01:24:56.458 – 01:24:58.501
Vice President Ford
01:24:58.585 – 01:25:03.089
will be sworn in as president at that hour in this office.
01:25:04.466 – 01:25:09.261
As I recall the high hopes for America with which we began this second term...
01:25:14.518 – 01:25:16.06
Sergeant Gump.
01:25:16.561 – 01:25:18.771
- Yes, sir! - As you were.
01:25:18.855 – 01:25:21.983
I have your discharge papers. Your service is up, son.
01:25:25.404 – 01:25:28.155
Does this mean I can't play Ping-Pong no more?
01:25:28.24 – 01:25:30.199
For the Army it does.
01:25:32.828 – 01:25:37.707
FORREST : And just like that, my service in the United States Army was over.
01:25:43.005 – 01:25:44.796
So, I went home.
01:26:06.277 – 01:26:09.696
- I'm home, Mama. - I know, I know.
01:26:11.323 – 01:26:12.866
- Louise, he's here. - FORREST : Now, when I got home,
01:26:12.95 – 01:26:16.995
I had no idea, but Mama had had all sorts of visitors.
01:26:17.121 – 01:26:19.414
We've had all sorts of visitors, Forrest.
01:26:19.498 – 01:26:22.584
Everybody wants you to use their Ping-Pong stuff.
01:26:22.668 – 01:26:26.463
One man even left a check for $25,000
01:26:26.547 – 01:26:30.008
if you'd be agreeable to saying you liked using their paddle.
01:26:30.134 – 01:26:32.802
Oh, but, Mama, I only like using my own paddle.
01:26:32.887 – 01:26:34.888
- Hi, Miss Louise. - Hey, Forrest.
01:26:34.972 – 01:26:37.891
I know that. I know that.
01:26:37.975 – 01:26:40.643
But it's $25,000, Forrest.
01:26:40.728 – 01:26:45.398
I thought maybe you could hold it for a while, see if it grows on you.
01:26:45.483 – 01:26:47.609
- Oh, you look good, Forrest. - That Mama, she sure was right.
01:26:47.693 – 01:26:50.195
- You look real good. - It's funny how things work out.
01:26:50.321 – 01:26:53.448
I didn't stay home for long, because I'd made a promise to Bubba,
01:26:53.532 – 01:26:55.784
and I always try to keep my promise.
01:26:55.868 – 01:26:57.41
So, I went on down to Bayou La Batre
01:26:57.495 – 01:27:01.247
to meet Bubba's family and make their introduction.
01:27:01.332 – 01:27:05.001
Are you crazy, or just plain stupid?
01:27:05.711 – 01:27:07.962
Stupid is as stupid does, Mrs. Blue.
01:27:08.047 – 01:27:09.422
I guess.
01:27:10.424 – 01:27:14.01
And, of course, I paid my respect to Bubba himself.
01:27:16.013 – 01:27:18.556
Hey, Bubba, it's me, Forrest Gump.
01:27:21.685 – 01:27:25.73
I remember everything you said, and I got it all figured out.
01:27:28.526 – 01:27:35.323
I'm taking the $24,562 and 47 cents that I got...
01:27:36.408 – 01:27:39.994
Or, that's left after a new hair cut and a new suit,
01:27:40.079 – 01:27:42.038
and I took Mama out to a real fancy dinner,
01:27:42.123 – 01:27:45.375
and I bought a bus ticket and three Dr. Peppers.
01:27:45.918 – 01:27:47.71
Tell me something.
01:27:48.754 – 01:27:50.88
SHRIMPER : Are you stupid or something?
01:27:50.965 – 01:27:53.007
Stupid is as stupid does, sir.
01:27:53.092 – 01:27:56.052
Well, that's what's left after me saying,
01:27:56.971 – 01:27:59.097
"When I was in China on the All-America Ping-Pong team,
01:27:59.223 – 01:28:03.017
"I just loved playing Ping-Pong with my Flex-O-Light Ping-Pong paddle,"
01:28:03.102 – 01:28:04.352
which everybody knows isn't true,
01:28:04.436 – 01:28:05.812
but Mama says it's just a little white lie
01:28:05.896 – 01:28:08.064
so it wouldn't hurt nobody.
01:28:09.483 – 01:28:15.404
So, anyway, I'm putting all that on gas, ropes and new nets
01:28:16.156 – 01:28:17.906
and a brand-new shrimping boat.
01:28:39.596 – 01:28:42.848
Now, Bubba had told me everything he knew about shrimping,
01:28:42.932 – 01:28:45.267
but you know what I found out?
01:28:46.936 – 01:28:49.271
Shrimping is tough.
01:28:51.482 – 01:28:53.317
I only caught five.
01:28:53.443 – 01:28:55.277
A couple more, you could have yourself a cocktail.
01:28:55.361 – 01:28:56.445
(CHUCKLING)
01:29:00.116 – 01:29:01.867
Hey, you ever think about naming this old boat?
01:29:01.951 – 01:29:04.62
It's bad luck to have a boat without a name.
01:29:06.998 – 01:29:11.835
I'd never named a boat before, but there was only one I could think of,
01:29:13.004 – 01:29:16.215
the most beautiful name in the wide world.
01:29:20.553 – 01:29:23.764
(GET DOWN TONIGHT PLAYING)
01:29:37.237 – 01:29:40.072
Now, I hadn't heard from Jenny in a long while,
01:29:40.156 – 01:29:42.699
but I thought about her a lot,
01:29:42.825 – 01:29:46.286
and I hoped that whatever she was doing made her happy.
01:31:32.559 – 01:31:35.102
I thought about Jenny all the time.

01:31:59.753 – 01:32:00.92
Hey!
01:32:24.778 – 01:32:29.448
Lieutenant Dan, what are you doing here?
01:32:29.533 – 01:32:33.452
Well, thought I'd try out my sea legs.
01:32:33.537 – 01:32:37.289
But you ain't got no legs, Lieutenant Dan.
01:32:37.374 – 01:32:39.667
Yes, I know that.
01:32:40.001 – 01:32:42.044
You wrote me a letter, you idiot.
01:32:42.17 – 01:32:46.715
Well, well. Captain Forrest Gump. I had to see this for myself.
01:32:48.343 – 01:32:55.224
And I told you if you were ever a shrimp boat captain
01:32:55.35 – 01:32:57.935
that I'd be your first mate. Well, here I am.
01:32:58.019 – 01:33:01.147
- I am a man of my word. - Okay.
01:33:01.231 – 01:33:05.234
Yeah, but don't you be thinking that I'm going to be calling you "sir."
01:33:05.36 – 01:33:06.694
No, sir.
01:33:15.578 – 01:33:17.871
That's my boat.
01:33:20.458 – 01:33:25.92
DAN : I have a feeling if we head due east, we'll find some shrimp,
01:33:26.046 – 01:33:27.63
so take a left.
01:33:29.049 – 01:33:31.968
- Take a left! - Which way?
01:33:32.052 – 01:33:34.721
Over there! They're over there!
01:33:35.389 – 01:33:39.225
- Get on the wheel and take a left! - Okay.
01:33:40.436 – 01:33:44.564
Gump, what are you doing? Take a left! Left!
01:33:46.942 – 01:33:50.57
That's where we're going to find those shrimp, my boy!
01:33:52.156 – 01:33:53.74
That's where we'll find them.
01:34:06.42 – 01:34:10.548
- Still no shrimp, Lieutenant Dan. - Okay, so I was wrong.
01:34:11.258 – 01:34:14.469
How are we going to find them?
01:34:14.595 – 01:34:17.096
Well, maybe you should just pray for shrimp.

FORREST : So, I went to church every Sunday.
01:34:27.65 – 01:34:29.651
Sometimes Lieutenant Dan came, too,
01:34:29.777 – 01:34:32.779
though I think he left the praying up to me.
01:34:48.254 – 01:34:52.632
- No shrimp. - Where the hell's this God of yours?
01:34:53.467 – 01:34:59.18
It's funny Lieutenant Dan said that, 'cause right then, God showed up.
01:35:16.031 – 01:35:20.868
- DAN : You'll never sink this boat! - Now, me, I was scared,
01:35:20.995 – 01:35:24.038
but Lieutenant Dan, he was mad.
01:35:24.164 – 01:35:25.498

Hurricane Carmen came through here yesterday,
01:35:54.36 – 01:35:56.903
destroying nearly everything in its path.
01:35:57.03 – 01:35:59.531
And as in other towns up and down the coast,
01:35:59.699 – 01:36:02.075
Bayou La Batre's entire shrimping industry
01:36:02.16 – 01:36:06.038
has fallen victim to Carmen and has been left in utter ruin.
01:36:06.164 – 01:36:09.291
Speaking with local officials, this reporter has learned,
01:36:09.375 – 01:36:12.836
in fact, only one shrimping boat actually survived the storm.
01:36:13.212 – 01:36:15.839
Louise. Louise, there's Forrest.

FORREST : After that, shrimping was easy.
01:36:24.223 – 01:36:27.351
Since people still needed them shrimps for shrimp cocktails
01:36:27.435 – 01:36:31.563
and barbecues and all, and we were the only boat left standing,
01:36:31.731 – 01:36:34.983
Bubba-Gump Shrimp's what they got.
01:36:35.068 – 01:36:39.655
We got a whole bunch of boats, 12 Jennys,
01:36:39.739 – 01:36:43.241
a big old warehouse. We even have hats that say "Bubba-Gump" on them.
01:36:43.576 – 01:36:46.87
Bubba-Gump Shrimp. It's a household name.
01:36:47.08 – 01:36:48.789
Hold on there, boy.

Are you telling me you're the owner of the Bubba-Gump Shrimp Corporation?
01:36:53.586 – 01:36:56.588
Yes, sir. We got more money than Davy Crockett.

Would you like to see what Lieutenant Dan looks like?
01:37:25.451 – 01:37:26.952
Well, yes, I would.
01:37:31.958 – 01:37:34
That's him right there.
01:37:36.337 – 01:37:38.588
And let me tell you something about Lieutenant Dan...

01:37:46.347 – 01:37:49.141

Yeah, well, you'll have to tell them to call him back.
01:38:44.154 – 01:38:47.531
- He is indisposed at the moment. - His mama's sick.
01:39:08.22 – 01:39:10.596
- Where's Mama? - She's upstairs.
01:39:13.433 – 01:39:15.392
Hi, Forrest.

- DOCTOR : I'll see you tomorrow. - All right.

We sure got you straightened out, didn't we, boy?
01:39:40.085 – 01:39:44.046
- What's the matter, Mama? - I'm dying, Forrest.
01:39:47.384 – 01:39:49.76
Come on in, sit down over here.
01:40:04.109 – 01:40:07.611
- Why are you dying, Mama? - It's my time.

I didn't know it, but I was destined to be your mama.

- I did the best I could. - You did good, Mama.

What's my destiny, Mama?
01:40:53.282 – 01:40:56.492
You're going to have to figure that out for yourself.
01:40:57.786 – 01:41:00.747
Life is a box of chocolates, Forrest.
01:41:00.831 – 01:41:02.999
You never know what you're going to get.
01:41:03.125 – 01:41:07.503
Mama always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them.
01:41:07.588 – 01:41:09.797
I will miss you, Forrest.

She had got the cancer and died on a Tuesday.

I bought her a new hat with little flowers on it.
01:41:23.562 – 01:41:26.856
And that's all I have to say about that.
01:41:33.697 – 01:41:35.99
Didn't you say you were waiting for the number seven bus?

and a national celebrity, and a shrimping boat captain,
01:41:50.005 – 01:41:53.216
and a college graduate, the city fathers of Greenbow, Alabama
01:41:53.342 – 01:41:56.552
decided to get together and offered me a fine job.
01:41:57.93 – 01:42:01.599
So, I never went back to work for Lieutenant Dan,
01:42:01.725 – 01:42:04.435
though he did take care of my Bubba-Gump money.
01:42:04.561 – 01:42:09.148
He got me invested in some kind of fruit company.
01:42:09.233 – 01:42:10.817
And so then, I got a call from him saying
01:42:10.901 – 01:42:14.362
we don't have to worry about money no more, and I said,
01:42:14.446 – 01:42:16.739
"That's good. One less thing."

Now, Mama said there's only so much fortune a man really needs,
01:42:24.456 – 01:42:27.291
and the rest is just for showing off.
01:42:27.376 – 01:42:31.254
So, I gave a whole bunch of it to the Foursquare gospel church,
01:42:33.716 – 01:42:37.885
and I gave a whole bunch to the Bayou La Batre fishing hospital.
01:42:40.764 – 01:42:45.309
And even though Bubba was dead and Lieutenant Dan said I was nuts,
01:42:45.436 – 01:42:48.062
I gave Bubba's mama Bubba's share.
01:42:52.276 – 01:42:53.985
You know what?
01:42:55.237 – 01:42:58.239
She didn't have to work in nobody's kitchen no more.
01:42:58.323 – 01:42:59.949
That smells wonderful.
01:43:00.784 – 01:43:04.703
And 'cause I was a gazillionaire and I liked doing it so much,
01:43:04.787 – 01:43:07.122
I cut that grass for free.
01:43:10.918 – 01:43:13.795
But at night time when there was nothing to do
01:43:13.88 – 01:43:16.256
and the house was all empty,
01:43:17.258 – 01:43:19.634
I'd always think of Jenny.
01:44:23.324 – 01:44:26.493
And then, she was there.

Jenny came back and stayed with me.
01:45:18.421 – 01:45:22.09
Maybe it was because she had nowhere else to go,
01:45:22.216 – 01:45:25.927
or maybe it was because she was so tired, 'cause she went to bed
01:45:26.053 – 01:45:30.015
and slept and slept, like she hadn't slept in years.
01:45:31.266 – 01:45:33.559
It was wonderful having her home.
01:45:34.895 – 01:45:40.024
Every day we'd take a walk and I'd jabber on like a monkey in a tree,
01:45:40.108 – 01:45:42.651
and she'd listen about Ping-Ponging, and shrimping,
01:45:42.736 – 01:45:47.031
and Mama making a trip up to heaven. I did all the talking.
01:45:47.115 – 01:45:50.451
Jenny most of the time was real quiet.

Every day, I'd pick pretty flowers and put them in her room for her,
01:47:33.221 – 01:47:36.807
and she gave me the best gift anyone could ever get in the wide world.
01:47:36.891 – 01:47:39.727
- New shoes. - They make them just for running.

maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama.

01:53:26.738 – 01:53:29.573
might as well turn around and just keep on going.

I might as well just turn back and keep right on going.

01:55:02.167 – 01:55:04.585
For the fourth time on his journey across America,
01:55:04.669 – 01:55:07.504
Forrest Gump, the gardener from Greenbow, Alabama,
01:55:07.63 – 01:55:10.507
is about to cross the Mississippi River again today.
01:55:11.134 – 01:55:13.177
- I'll be damned. Forrest? - Sir, why are you running?
01:55:13.261 – 01:55:14.344
Why are you running?
01:55:14.429 – 01:55:16.013
Are you doing this for world peace?
01:55:16.097 – 01:55:17.431
Are you doing this for the homeless?
01:55:17.515 – 01:55:20.517
- Are you running for women's rights? - Or for the environment?
01:55:20.602 – 01:55:21.602
Or for animals?
01:55:21.686 – 01:55:24.604
FORREST : They just couldn't believe that somebody would do all that running
01:55:24.688 – 01:55:26.063
for no particular reason.
01:55:26.148 – 01:55:28.107
REPORTER : Why are you doing this?
01:55:28.192 – 01:55:33.196
I just felt like running.
01:55:33.322 – 01:55:36.532
It's you. I can't believe it's really you.
01:55:37.367 – 01:55:42.497
Now, for some reason, what I was doing seemed to make sense to people.
01:55:42.664 – 01:55:44.791
I mean, it was like an alarm went off in my head, you know?
01:55:44.875 – 01:55:46.709
I said, "Here's a guy that's got his act together.
01:55:46.835 – 01:55:48.795
"Here's somebody who's got it all figured out.
01:55:48.879 – 01:55:52.965
"Here's somebody who has the answer." I'll follow you anywhere, Mr. Gump.
01:55:53.05 – 01:55:54.884
So, I got company.
01:55:56.72 – 01:56:02.558
And after that, I got more company. And then, even more people joined in.
01:56:05.02 – 01:56:08.231
Somebody later told me it gave people hope.
01:56:10.025 – 01:56:13.402
Now... Now, I don't know anything about that,
01:56:14.238 – 01:56:16.823
but some of those people asked me if I could help them out.
01:56:17.032 – 01:56:20.284
Hey, man, hey, listen, I was wondering if you might help me, huh?
01:56:20.369 – 01:56:22.119
Listen, I'm in the bumper sticker business
01:56:22.204 – 01:56:23.955
and I've been trying to think up a good slogan.
01:56:24.039 – 01:56:27.166
And since you have been such a big inspiration to the people around here,
01:56:27.251 – 01:56:29.168
I thought you might be able to help me jump into...
01:56:29.253 – 01:56:32.88
Whoa, man! You just ran through a big pile of dog shit!
01:56:34.424 – 01:56:37.093
- It happens. - What, shit?
01:56:38.595 – 01:56:40.555
Sometimes.
01:56:42.432 – 01:56:45.101
And some years later, I heard that that fellow
01:56:45.185 – 01:56:47.019
did come up with a bumper sticker slogan,
01:56:47.104 – 01:56:50.106
and he made a lot of money off of it.
01:56:51.567 – 01:56:53.776
Another time, I was running along,
01:56:53.902 – 01:56:57.196
somebody who had lost all his money in the T-shirt business,
01:56:57.281 – 01:56:59.323
he wanted to put my face on a T-shirt,
01:56:59.408 – 01:57:02.368
but he couldn't draw that well, and he didn't have a camera.
01:57:02.452 – 01:57:05.955
Here, use this one. Nobody likes that color anyway.
01:57:10.794 – 01:57:12.461
FORREST : Have a nice day.
01:57:14.089 – 01:57:15.214
Well, some years later,
01:57:15.299 – 01:57:19.218
I found out that that man did come up with an idea for a T-shirt.
01:57:19.303 – 01:57:21.679
He made a lot of money off of it.
01:57:24.474 – 01:57:28.895
Anyway, like I was saying, I had a lot of company.
01:57:30.147 – 01:57:31.314
My mama always said,
01:57:31.398 – 01:57:35.818
"You got to put the past behind you before you can move on."
01:57:37.487 – 01:57:40.823
And I think that's what my running was all about.
01:57:41.658 – 01:57:45.661
I had run for three years, two months,
01:57:45.913 – 01:57:48.247
14 days and 16 hours.
01:58:03.93 – 01:58:06.264
Quiet. Quiet. He's going to say something.
01:58:17.693 – 01:58:19.444
I'm pretty tired.
01:58:22.281 – 01:58:24.324
Think I'll go home now.
01:58:42.885 – 01:58:45.345
Now what are we supposed to do?
01:58:46.305 – 01:58:50.558
And just like that, my running days was over.
01:58:52.52 – 01:58:54.27
So, I went home to Alabama.
01:58:55.064 – 01:58:58.942
REPORTER : Moments ago, at 2:25 p.m., as President Reagan was leaving the...
01:58:59.026 – 01:59:00.694
(GUNSHOTS FIRING)
01:59:00.987 – 01:59:05.156
...five or six gunshots were fired by an unknown would-be assassin.
01:59:05.658 – 01:59:07.993
The President was shot in the chest, and the assailant...
01:59:08.077 – 01:59:10.036
I picked up the mail.
01:59:10.83 – 01:59:14.666
And one day, out of the blue clear sky, I got a letter from Jenny,
01:59:14.75 – 01:59:19.004
wondering if I could come down to Savannah and see her,
01:59:19.088 – 01:59:21.673
and that's what I'm doing here.
01:59:21.757 – 01:59:24.342
She saw me on TV, running.
01:59:24.427 – 01:59:28.68
I'm supposed to go on the number nine bus to Richmond Street
01:59:28.764 – 01:59:35.687
and get off and go one block left to 1947 Henry Street, Apartment 4.
01:59:35.771 – 01:59:39.441
Why, you don't need to take a bus.
01:59:39.567 – 01:59:44.112
Henry Street is just five or six blocks down that way.
01:59:45.948 – 01:59:48.283
- Down that way? - Down that way.
01:59:51.287 – 01:59:53.204
It was nice talking to you.
01:59:53.456 – 01:59:54.414
(CAR HORN HONKING)
01:59:54.498 – 01:59:57.125
I hope everything works out for you!
02:00:04.633 – 02:00:06.301
Hey!
02:00:06.719 – 02:00:08.386
Forrest!
02:00:08.637 – 02:00:11.89
How you doing? Come in, come in!
02:00:11.974 – 02:00:13.183
I got your letter.
02:00:13.267 – 02:00:15.894
I was wondering about that.
02:00:17.438 – 02:00:19.23
Is this your house?
02:00:19.315 – 02:00:22.399
Yeah. It's messy right now. I just got off work.
02:00:22.484 – 02:00:26.195
It's nice. You got air conditioning.
02:00:33.078 – 02:00:35.12
- Thank you. - I ate some.
02:00:37.916 – 02:00:43.337
Hey, I kept a scrapbook of your clippings and everything.
02:00:43.463 – 02:00:45.089
There you are.
02:00:46.674 – 02:00:48.05
And this, I got you running.
02:00:51.012 – 02:00:53.18
I ran a long way,
02:00:53.681 – 02:00:55.516
for a long time.
02:00:57.727 – 02:00:59.228
And there...
02:01:05.735 – 02:01:09.196
Listen, Forrest, I don't know how to say this.
02:01:11.699 – 02:01:16.036
I just I want to apologize for anything that I ever did to you,
02:01:16.162 – 02:01:21.416
'cause I was messed up for a long time, and...
02:01:21.751 – 02:01:22.751
(KNOCKING AT DOOR)
02:01:23.086 – 02:01:24.086
Yoo-hoo!
02:01:24.212 – 02:01:25.838
- Hey. - Hi.
02:01:26.047 – 02:01:27.047
Hey, you.
02:01:28.216 – 02:01:31.176
- This is an old friend from Alabama. - How do you do?
02:01:31.261 – 02:01:34.346
JENNY : Listen, next week my schedule changes, so I'll be able to... But thanks...
02:01:34.43 – 02:01:36.473
No problem. Got to go, Jen, I'm double-parked.
02:01:36.558 – 02:01:38.433
- Okay. Thanks. - Bye.
02:01:41.896 – 02:01:44.648
This is my very good friend, Mr. Gump. Can you say hi to him?
02:01:44.732 – 02:01:47.818
- Hello, Mr. Gump. - Hello.
02:01:47.902 – 02:01:50.904
- Can I go watch TV now? - Yes, you can. Just keep it low.
02:01:53.741 – 02:01:57.077
- You're a mama, Jenny. - I'm a mama.
02:01:59.956 – 02:02:01.79
His name's Forrest.
02:02:02.917 – 02:02:04.251
Like me.
02:02:05.879 – 02:02:08.005
I named him after his daddy.
02:02:08.965 – 02:02:11.425
He got a daddy named Forrest, too?
02:02:12.719 – 02:02:14.761
You're his daddy, Forrest.
02:02:29.235 – 02:02:30.444
Hey.
02:02:31.613 – 02:02:34.489
Forrest, look at me. Look at me, Forrest.
02:02:37.076 – 02:02:41.205
There's nothing you need to do, okay? You didn't do anything wrong.
02:02:41.748 – 02:02:43.123
Okay?
02:02:47.462 – 02:02:49.337
Isn't he beautiful?
02:02:50.339 – 02:02:53.299
He's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
02:02:57.095 – 02:02:58.179
But...
02:03:01.85 – 02:03:04.727
Is he smart, or...
02:03:04.811 – 02:03:08.814
He's very smart. He's one of the smartest in his class.
02:03:18.158 – 02:03:20.618
Yeah, it's okay. Go talk to him.
02:03:29.962 – 02:03:32.797
- What are you watching? - Bert and Ernie.
02:03:55.904 – 02:03:57.697
Forrest,
02:03:59.157 – 02:04:00.7
I'm sick.
02:04:03.37 – 02:04:06.998
What, do you have a cough due to a cold?
02:04:07.082 – 02:04:09.458
I have some kind of virus,
02:04:09.543 – 02:04:12.253
and the doctors don't... They don't know what it is,
02:04:12.379 – 02:04:15.381
and there isn't anything they can do about it.
02:04:19.761 – 02:04:22.054
You could come home with me.
02:04:23.724 – 02:04:29.395
Jenny, you and little Forrest could come stay at my house in Greenbow.
02:04:33.734 – 02:04:36.527
I'll take care of you if you're sick.
02:04:38.905 – 02:04:41.198
Would you marry me, Forrest?
02:04:46.455 – 02:04:47.705
Okay.
02:04:48.749 – 02:04:50.416
MINISTER : Please take your seats.
02:04:54.254 – 02:04:56.589
Forrest? It's time to start.
02:05:15.984 – 02:05:17.567
Hi.
02:05:18.444 – 02:05:19.944
Your tie.
02:05:32.5 – 02:05:51.434
Lieutenant Dan.
02:05:52.269 – 02:05:53.937
Hello, Forrest.
02:05:54.605 – 02:05:57.273
You got new legs. New legs!
02:05:58.484 – 02:06:02.278
Yeah. I got new legs. Custom-made.
02:06:02.988 – 02:06:06.991
Titanium alloy. It's what they use on the space shuttle.
02:06:10.83 – 02:06:12.33
Magic legs.
02:06:14.333 – 02:06:18.711
This is my fiancée, Susan.
02:06:21.507 – 02:06:24.884
- Lieutenant Dan. - Hi, Forrest.
02:06:26.971 – 02:06:30.181
Lieutenant Dan, this is my Jenny.
02:06:30.558 – 02:06:33.56
Hey. It's nice to meet you finally.
02:06:43.696 – 02:06:47.866
MINISTER : Do you, Forrest, take Jenny to be your wife?
02:06:49.743 – 02:06:53.997
Do you, Jenny, take Forrest to be your husband?
02:06:55.332 – 02:06:58.71
And so I pronounce you man and wife.
02:07:29.575 – 02:07:31.451
- Hey. - Hey.
02:07:45.132 – 02:07:46.924
Hey, Forrest.
02:07:52.263 – 02:07:54.056
Were you scared in Vietnam?
02:07:55.725 – 02:07:58.06
Yes. Well, I...
02:07:59.395 – 02:08:01.104
I don't know.
02:08:01.814 – 02:08:06.777
Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out.
02:08:09.906 – 02:08:11.949
And then it was nice.
02:08:15.328 – 02:08:19.289
It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou.
02:08:20.583 – 02:08:24.461
There was always a million sparkles on the water.
02:08:26.256 – 02:08:30.175
Like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny,
02:08:30.301 – 02:08:34.888
it looked like there were two skies, one on top of the other.
02:08:37.433 – 02:08:40.477
And then, in the desert, when the sun comes up,
02:08:42.939 – 02:08:47.109
I couldn't tell where heaven stopped
02:08:47.652 – 02:08:50.028
and the earth began.
02:08:51.281 – 02:08:53.156
It was so beautiful.
02:08:57.87 – 02:09:00.956
I wish I could've been there with you.
02:09:04.043 – 02:09:05.46
You were.
02:09:16.18 – 02:09:17.639
JENNY : I love you.
02:09:22.02 – 02:09:25.355
FORREST : You died on a Saturday morning.
02:09:27.066 – 02:09:30.819
And I had you placed here under our tree.
02:09:35.7 – 02:09:40.537
And I had that house of your father's bulldozed to the ground.
02:09:44.667 – 02:09:46.335
Mama
02:09:47.42 – 02:09:52.424
always said that dying was a part of life.
02:09:55.845 – 02:09:58.18
I sure wish it wasn't.
02:10:00.85 – 02:10:04.603
Little Forrest is doing just fine.
02:10:05.938 – 02:10:07.022
But...
02:10:07.273 – 02:10:09.941
About to start school again soon,
02:10:11.778 – 02:10:15.571
and I make his breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.
02:10:17.741 – 02:10:23.746
I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day.
02:10:26.875 – 02:10:29.46
Teaching him how to play Ping-Pong.
02:10:30.754 – 02:10:31.796
Okay.
02:10:32.047 – 02:10:33.214
He's really good.
02:10:33.298 – 02:10:35.424
Forrest, you go.
02:10:39.638 – 02:10:41.222
We fish a lot.
02:10:44.768 – 02:10:48.229
(SOBBING) And every night, we read a book. He's so smart, Jenny.
02:10:51.483 – 02:10:53.734
You'd be so proud of him.
02:10:55.445 – 02:10:56.904
I am.
02:10:57.948 – 02:11:01.158
He wrote you a letter.
02:11:02.744 – 02:11:04.787
And he says I can't read it.
02:11:04.913 – 02:11:08.457
I'm not supposed to, so I'll just leave it here for you.
02:11:24.516 – 02:11:25.85
Jenny,
02:11:31.648 – 02:11:34.859
I don't know if Mama was right,
02:11:36.194 – 02:11:37.695
or if it's Lieutenant Dan.
02:11:37.821 – 02:11:40.406
I don't know
02:11:40.49 – 02:11:44.994
if we each have a destiny,
02:11:47.038 – 02:11:52.168
or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze.
02:11:56.673 – 02:11:58.507
But I think
02:12:00.385 – 02:12:02.178
maybe it's both.
02:12:06.516 – 02:12:09.393
Maybe both is happening at the same time.
02:12:15.525 – 02:12:17.526
But I miss you, Jenny.
02:12:23.909 – 02:12:28.329
FORREST : If there's anything you need, I won't be far away.
02:13:03.614 – 02:13:06.574
FORREST :Here's your bus. Okay.
02:13:08.244 – 02:13:11.579
Hey. I know this.
