Forrest Gump is your typical boomer-aged Alabama man, even if he is not the fastest in the brain. This film is a coming-of-age tale as Gump lives his standard life in late 20th century America. Whether it is discovering he is fast on his feet to helping save members of his platoon in the Vietnam War, Gump remains unaware of how big an influence he is on others with his actions, or the significance of what is going on around him. Even the kind and gentle man he is, he still finds all the normal things for happiness like love and friendship.

Young Forrest: "Mama, what does 'vacation' mean?"
Forrest's mother: "Vacation?"
Young Forrest: "Where Daddy went?"
Forrest's mother: "Vacation's where you're going away somewhere... and you're never coming back."
Drill Sergeant: "Gump! What's your sole purpose in this army?"
Forrest Gump: "To do whatever you tell me, drill sergeant!"
Drill Sergeant: "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."
Mrs. Gump: "You have to do the best with what God gave you"
Forrest Gump: "I'd make a good husband, Jenny."
Forrest Gump: "Mama says they was magic shoes. They could take me anywhere."
Forrest Gump: "Her dream had come true. She was a folk singer."
Forrest Gump: "And cause I was a gazillionaire, and I liked doin it so much, I cut that grass for free."
Forrest Gump: "Lieutenant Dan, I got you some ice cream. Lieutenant Dan, ice cream."
Forrest Gump: "Mama always said, dying was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn't."
Forrest Gump: "Yes, drill sergeant!"
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. 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."
Forrest Gump: "Done, Drill Sergeant!"
Drill Sergeant: "Gump! Why did you put that weapon together so quickly, Gump?"
Forrest Gump: "You told me to, Drill Sergeant?"
Drill Sergeant: "Jesus H. Christ! 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!"
Jenny Curran: "Do you think I could fly off this bridge, Forrest?"
Lieutenant Daniel Taylor: "I'm here to try out my sea legs."
Forrest Gump: "But you ain't got no legs, Lieutenant Dan."
Forrest Gump: "Now you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was ever going somewhere, I was running!"
Bubba: "Have you ever been on a real shrimp boat?"
Forrest Gump: "No, but I've been on a real big boat."
Forrest Gump: "You know it's funny what a young man recollects? 'Cause I don't remember bein' born. I don't recall what I got for my first Christmas and I don't know when I went on my first outdoor picnic. But I do remember the first time I heard the sweetest voice in the wide world."
Forrest Gump: "Sometimes, I guess there just aren't enough rocks."
Forrest Gump: "When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate. When I had to go, you know, I went."
Jenny Curran: "His name's Forrest."
Forrest Gump: "Like me."
Jenny Curran: "I named him after his daddy."
Forrest Gump: "He got a daddy named Forrest, too?"
