Forrest Gump

  • Forrest Gump: Will you marry me?
    [Jenny turns and looks at him]
    Forrest Gump: I’d make a good husband, Jenny.
    Jenny Curran: You would, Forrest.
    Forrest Gump: …But you won’t marry me.
    Jenny Curran: [sadly] … You don’t wanna marry me.
    Forrest Gump: Why don’t you love me, Jenny?
    [Jenny says nothing]
    Forrest Gump: I’m not a smart man… but I know what love is.
  • Forrest Gump: My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
  • Forrest Gump: 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. Momma always said dyin’ was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t. Little Forrest, he’s doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching 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, uh, wrote a letter, and he says I can’t read it. I’m not supposed to, so I’ll just leave it here for you. Jenny, I don’t know if Momma was right or if, 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, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If there’s anything you need, I won’t be far away.
