Dear God, make me a bird. So I could fly far. Far far away from here.
– Young Jenny Curran

Life’s a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you’re gonna get.
– Mrs. Gump

I gotta find Bubba!
– Forrest Gump

Hello. My name’s Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?
– Forrest Gump

Stupid is as stupid does.
– Forrest Gump

Do you ever dream, Forrest, about who you’re gonna be?
– Jenny Curran
Who I’m gonna be?
– Forrest Gump
Yeah.
– Jenny Curran
Aren’t-aren’t I going to be me?
– Forrest Gump

Run, Forrest! Run!
– Jenny Curran

My given name is Benjamin Buford Blue, but people call me Bubba. Just like one of them ol’ redneck boys. Can you believe that?
– Bubba
My name’s Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump.
– Forrest Gump

You have to do the best with what God gave you.
– Mrs. Gump

When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate. When I had to go, you know, I went.
– Forrest Gump
And so, you just ran?
– Elderly Southern Woman on Park Bench
Yeah.
– Forrest Gump

My Mama always said you’ve got to put the past behind you before you can move on.
– Forrest Gump

Me and Jenny goes together like peas and carrots.
– Forrest Gump

What’s normal anyways?
– Mrs. Gump

His name’s Forrest.
– Jenny Curran
Like me.
– Forrest Gump
I named him after his daddy.
– Jenny Curran
He got a daddy named Forrest, too?
– Forrest Gump
You’re his daddy, Forrest.
– Jenny Curran

Will you marry me?
– Forrest Gump
I’d make a good husband, Jenny.
– Forrest Gump
You would, Forrest.
– Jenny Curran
…But you won’t marry me.
– Forrest Gump
… You don’t wanna marry me.
– Jenny Curran
Why don’t you love me, Jenny?
– Forrest Gump
I’m not a smart man… but I know what love is.
– Forrest Gump

Mama always said, dying was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t.
– Forrest Gump

Mama always had a way of explaining things so I could understand them.
– Forrest Gump

What’s my destiny, Mama?
– Forrest Gump
You’re gonna have to figure that out for yourself.
– Mrs. Gump

Jenny taught me how to climb. And I taught her how to dangle.
– Forrest Gump

DONE, DRILL SERGEANT!
– Forrest Gump
GUUUUUUMP! Why did you put that weapon together so quickly, Gump?
– Drill Sergeant
You told me to, Drill Sergeant?
– Forrest Gump
Jesus H. Christ!
– Drill Sergeant
This is a new company record! If it wouldn’t be such a waste of a damn-fine enlisted man I’d recommend you for OCS! You are gonna be a general someday, Gump, now disassemble your weapon and continue!
– Drill Sergeant

Hello. I’m Forrest, Forrest Gump.
– Forrest Gump
Nobody gives a hunky shit who you are, pus ball. You’re not even a low-life, scum-sucking maggot. Get your ass on the bus, you’re in the army now!
– Recruit Officer

I never thanked you for saving my life.
– Lieutenant Daniel Taylor

In the land of China, people hardly got nothing at all.
– Forrest Gump
No possessions?
– John Lennon
And in China they never go to church.
– Forrest Gump
No religion too?
– John Lennon
Ah. Hard to imagine.
– Dick Cavett
Well it’s easy if you try, Dick.
– John Lennon

Why are you so good to me?
– Jenny Curran
You’re my girl!
– Forrest Gump
I’ll always be your girl.
– Jenny Curran

Are you coming along?
– Dorothy Harris
Mama said not to be taking rides from strangers.
– Young Forrest Gump
This is the bus to school.
– Dorothy Harris
I’m Forrest, Forrest Gump.
– Young Forrest Gump
I’m Dorothy Harris.
– Dorothy Harris
Well, now we ain’t strangers anymore.
– Young Forrest Gump

Gump! What’s your sole purpose in this army?
– Drill Sergeant
To do whatever you tell me, drill sergeant!
– Forrest Gump
God damn it, Gump! You’re a god damn genius! This is the most outstanding answer I have ever heard. You must have a goddamn I.Q. of 160. You are goddamn gifted, Private Gump. Listen up, people…
– Drill Sergeant
Now for some reason I fit in the army like one of them round pegs. It’s not really hard. You just make your bed real neat and remember to stand up straight and always answer every question with “Yes, drill sergeant.”
– Forrest Gump
…Is that clear?
– Drill Sergeant
Yes, drill sergeant!
– Forrest Gump

My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
– Forrest Gump

Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don’t have to worry about money no more. And I said, that’s good! One less thing.
– Forrest Gump

Were you scared in Vietnam?
– Jenny Curran
Yes. Well, I-I don’t know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out… and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water… like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked like there were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It’s so beautiful.
– Forrest Gump
I wish I could’ve been there with you.
– Jenny Curran
You were.
– Forrest Gump

Lieutenant Dan, I got you some ice cream.
– Forrest Gump
Lieutenant Dan, ice cream.
– Forrest Gump

Sometimes, I guess there just aren’t enough rocks.
– Forrest Gump

I had run for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours.
– Forrest Gump
Quiet, quiet! He’s gonna say something!
– Young Man Running
I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now.
– Forrest Gump

Have you found Jesus yet, Gump?
– Lieutenant Daniel Taylor
I didn’t know I was supposed to be looking for him, sir.
– Forrest Gump

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.
