Forrest: Hello, I'm Forrest... Forrest Gump.
Army Bus Driver: Nobody gives a bunk of shit who you are, fuzzball! You're not even a low-life scumsucking maggot! Get your faggoty ass on the bus. You're in the Army now!
Forrest: (voice-over) So Bubba was from Bayou La Batre, Alabama, and his momma cooked shrimp. And her momma before her cooked shrimp. And her momma before her momma cooked shrimp, too. Bubba's family knew everything there was to know about the shrimpin' business.
Bubba: I know everything there is to know about the shrimpin' business.
Drill Sergeant: Gump! What's your sole purpose in this Army?
Forrest: To do whatever you tell me, Drill Sergeant!
Drill Sergeant: Godamnit, Gump! You're a goddamned genius! That's the most outstanding answer I've ever heard. You must have a godamned I.Q. of a hundred and sixty! You are godamned gifted, Private Gump!
Forrest: Done, Drill Sergeant!
Drill Sergeant: Gump! Why did you put that weapon together so quickly, Gump?
Forrest: You told me to, Drill Seageant.
Drill Sergeant: Jesus Christ! This is a new company record. If it wouldn't be a waste of such a damn fine enlisted man, I'd recommended you for O.C.S., Private Gump. You are gonna be a General some day, Gump! Now, disassemble your weapon and continue!
Bubba: Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There, uh, shrimp kabobs, shrimp creole... shrimp gumbo, panfried, 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's, that's about it.
Jenny: You can't keep doing this, Forrest. You can't keep tryin' to rescue me all the time.
Forrest: They was tryin' to grab you.
Jenny: A lot of people try to grab me. Just -- you can't keep doing this all the time!
Forrest: I can't keep it. I love you.
Jenny: Forrest, you don't know what love is.
Jenny: You remember that time we prayed, Forrest? We prayed for God to turn me into a bird so I could fly far, far away?
Forrest: Yes, I do.
Jenny: You think I can fly off this bridge?
Forrest: What do you mean, Jenny?
Jenny: Forrest, you stay away from me, okay? You just stay away from me, please.
Forrest: So bye-bye, Jenny. They sendin' me to Vietnam. It's this whole other country.
Jenny: Listen, you promise me something, okay? Just if you're ever in trouble, don't try to be brave, you just run, okay? Just run away.
Forrest: And just like that, she was gone.
