Quotes from the Movie Forrest Gump

Sometimes I guess there just aren't enough rocks.

Forrest Gump

And that's all I have to say about that.

Forrest Gump

I'm pretty tired, I think I'll go home now.

Forrest Gump

That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama. And that's what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going. When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate. When I had to go... you know... I went.

Forrest Gump

Jenny came back and stayed with me. Maybe it was because she had nowhere else to go. Or may be it was because she was so tired, because she went to bed and slept and slept like she hadn't slept in years. It was wonderful having her home. Every day we'd take a walk, and I'd jabber on like a monkey in a tree and she'd listen about ping-pong and shrimpin' boats and Momma makin' a trip to Heaven. I did all the talkin'. Jenny most of the time was real quiet.

Forrest Gump

Sorry I had a fight in the middle of your Black Panther party.

Forrest Gump

I thought I was going back to Vietnam, but instead, they decided the best way for me to fight communists was to play ping-pong. So I was in the Special Services, traveling around the country, cheering up all them wounded veterans and showing them how to play ping-pong. I was so good that some years later the Army decided I should be on the All-American Ping-Pong Team. We were the first Americans to visit the land of China in, like, a million years or something like that, and somebody said that world peace was in our hands. But all I did was play ping-pong. When I got home, I was national celebrity. Famouser even than Captain Kangaroo.

Forrest Gump

Now, I don't know much about anything, but I think some of American's best young men served in this war. There was Dallas, from Phoenix. Cleveland, he was from Detroit. And Tex was, well, I don't remember where Tex come from.

Forrest Gump

Bubba was my best good friend. I had to make sure he was okay. And on my way back to find Bubba, well, there was this boy laying on the ground. I couldn't just let him lay there all alone, scared the way he was, so I grabbed him up and run him out of there. And every time I went back looking for Bubba, somebody else was saying, "Help me, Forrest. Help me."

Forrest Gump

For some reason, ping pong came very natural to me. So I started playing it all the time. I played ping-pong even when I didn't have anyone to play ping-pong with. The hospital's people said it made me look like a duck in water, whatever that means. Even Lieutenant Dan would come and watch me play. I played ping-pong so much, I even played it in my sleep.

Forrest Gump

Now, they told us that Vietnam was gonna be very different from the United States of America. Except for all the beer cans and the barbecue, it was.

Forrest Gump

I got to see a lot of countryside. We would take these real long walks.

Forrest Gump

The good thing about Vietnam is there was always someplace to go. And there was always something to do. One day it started raining, and it didn't quit for four months. We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin' rain and big ol' fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath. Shoot, it even rained at night.

Forrest Gump

College ran by real fast 'cause I played so much football. They even put me on a thing called the All-America Team where you get to meet the President of the United States. Now, the real good thing about meeting the President of the United States is the food. They put you in this little room with just about anything you'd want to eat or drink. And since number one, I wasn't hungry, but thirsty and number two, they was free, I musta drank me about fifteen Dr. Peppers.

Forrest Gump

Her dream had come true. She was a folk singer.

Forrest Gump
