Margo: Base to Jenny One. Base to Jenny One.
Dan: Jenny One, go Margo.
Margo: Forrest had a phone call.
Dan: Well, you’ll have to tell them to call him back. He is indisposed© at the moment.
Margo: His mama’s sick.
Gump: Where’s mama?
Louise: She’s upstairs.
Doctor: I’ll see you tomorrow. Sure got you straightened out, didn’t we, boy?
Gump: What’s the matter, mama?
Mrs.Gump: I’m dyin’, Forrest. Come on in, sit down over here.
Gump: Why are you dying, mama?
Mrs.Gump: It’s my time. It’s just my time. Oh, now don’t you be afraid, sweetheart. Death is just a part of life, something we are all destined to do. I didn’t know it, but I was destined to be your mama. I did the best I could.
Gump: You did good, mama.
Mrs.Gump: Well, I happen to believe you make your own destiny. You have to do the best with what God gave you.
Gump: What’s my destiny, mom?
Mrs.Gump:You’re going to have to figure that out for yourself. Life is a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you’re going to get.
Forrest: Mama always had a way of explaining things so that I could understand them.
Mrs.Gump: I will miss you, Forrest.
Forrest: She had got the cancer and died on a Tuesday. I bought her a new hat with little flowers on it. And that’s all I have to say about that. Didn’t you say you were waiting for the number seven bus?
Woman: There’ll be another one along shortly.
PART FIVE FORREST&JENNY
Forrest: Now because I’d been a football star, and a war hero, and a national celebrity and a shrimpin’ boat captain, and a college graduate, the city of Greenbow, Alabama decided to get together and offered me a fine job. So I never went back to work for Lieutenant Dan, though he did take care of my Bubba Gump money. He 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.“ Now mama said there’s only so much fortune a man really needs and the rest is just for showin’ off. So, I gave a whole bunch of it to the Four Square Gospel Church and a whole bunch to the Bayou la Batre Fishing Hospital. Even though Bubba was dead, and Lieutenant Dan said I was nuts, I gave Bubba’s mama Bubba’s share©. You know what? She didn’t have to work in nobody’s kitchen no more and cause, I was a gozillionaire and I liked doing it so much, I cut that grass for free. But at night time when there was nothing to do and the house was all empty, I would always think of Jenny... And then, she was there.
Jenny: Hello, Forrest.
Gump: Hello, Jenny.
Forrest: Jenny came back and stayed with me. Maybe it was because she had nowhere else to go or maybe it was because she was so tired ‘cause she went to bed and slept and slept like she hadn’t slept in years. It was wonderful having her home. Everyday, we’d take a walk and I’d jabber© on like a monkey in a tree and she’d listen about Ping-ponging and shrimping and mama makin’ a trip up to heaven. I did all the talking. Jenny most of the time was real quiet... Sometimes I guess there just aren’t enough rocks. I never really knew why she came back, But I didn’t care. It was like olden times. We was like peas and carrots again. Everyday, I’d pick pretty flowers and put them in her room for her. And she gave me the best gift anyone could ever get in the wide world. And she even showed me how to Dance. And well, we was like family, Jenny and me, and it was the happiest time in my life.
