Quotes from the Movie 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.

Momma always says there's an awful lot you could tell about a person by their shoes. Where they're going. Where they've been. I've worn lots of shoes. I bet if I think about it real hard I could remember my first pair of shoes. Momma said they'd take me anywhere. She said they was my magic shoes.

That's what all these cripples down at the VA talk about: Jesus this and Jesus that. They even had a priest come and talk to me. He said God is listening and if I found Jesus, I'd get to walk beside him in the kingdom of Heaven. Did you hear what I said? Walk beside him in the kingdom of Heaven! Well kiss my crippled ass. God is listening? What a crock of shit.

Me and Jenny was like peas and carrots.
