Jenny: I’m a mama. His name is Forrest.
Forrest: Like me!
Jenny: I named him after his daddy.
Forrest: He’s got a daddy named Forrest, too?
Jenny: You’re his daddy, Forrest. Hey, Forrest, look at me. There’s nothing you need to do. You didn’t do anything wrong. OK? Isn’t he beautiful?
Forrest: He’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. But, is he smart or is he...
Jenny: He’s very smart. He’s one of the smartest in his class. Yeah, it’s OK. Go talk to him... Forrest, I’m sick.
Forrest: What, do you have a cough due to a cold?
Jenny: I have some kind of virus© and the doctors don’t know what it is and there isn’t anything they can do about it.
Forrest: You can come home with me, Jenny. You and Little Forrest could come stay at my house in Greenbow. I’ll take care of you if you’re sick. Jenny: Would you marry me, Forrest？
Louise: Forrest, it’s time to start.
Jenny: Hi. Your tie.
Forrest: Lieutenant Dan. Lieutenant Dan.
Dan: Hello, Forrest.
Forrest: You got new legs. New legs.
Dan: Yeah, I got new legs. Custom made. Titanium© alloy©. It’s what they use on the space shuttle©.
Forrest: Magic legs. Dan: This is my fiancée, Susan.
Forrest: Lieutenant Dan.
Susan: Hi, Forrest.
Forrest: Lieutenant Dan, this is my Jenny.
Jenny: Hi. It’s nice to meet you finally.
Priest: Do you, Forrest, take Jenny to be your wife? Do you, Jenny, take Forrest to be your husband?
Jenny: Hey, Forrest. Were you scared in Vietnam?
Forrest: Yes, well, 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 over a million sparkles© on the water. That mountain lake was so clear, Jenny, it looked like it was 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 was so beautiful.
Jenny: I wish I could have been there with you.
Forrest: You were.
Jenny: I love you.
Forrest: You died on a Saturday morning and I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father’s bulldozed© to the ground. Mama always said dying was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t. Little Forrest is doing just fine. He’s about to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth everyday. I’m teachin’ him how to play Ping-pong .He’s really good. We fish a lot, and every night we read a book. He’s so smart, Jenny. You’d be so proud of him. I am. He even wrote you a letter. He says I can’t read it. I’m not supposed to .It’s Forrest’s. So I’ll just leave it here for you. Jenny, I don’t know if mama was right or if it’s Lieutenant Dan. I don’t know if we each have a destiny or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like©, on a breeze. But I think that maybe it’s both. Maybe both are happening at the same time. I miss you , Jenny . If there’s anything you need, I won’t be far away.
Forrest: Here’s your bus. OK. Hey, I know this.
Little Forrest: I’m going to show that for show-and-tell because grandma used to read it to you.
Forrest: My favorite book. OK. Here you go. Hey, Forrest, Don’t….I want to tell you I love you.
Little Forrest: I love you too, daddy.
Forrest: I’ll be right here when you get back.
Dorothy: You understand that this is the bus to the school now, don’t you?
Little Forrest: Of course, and you’re Dorothy Harris, and I am Forrest Gump.
