Here are a few more: Forrest -- "I wore lots of shoes. I remember my first pair of shoes; Momma said they'd take me anywhere! They were my magic shoes." "You know it's funny what a young man recollects. 'Cause I don't remember being 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." "He was a very loving man. He was always kissing and touching her and her sisters." "I am not a smart man, but I know what love is" "That's my boat!" "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." "Now, it used to be, I ran to get where I was going. I didn't know it would take me anywhere." "Mamma said you gotta' put the past behind you before you can move on." "Mamma always said dying was a part of life." "Mamma said stupid is as stupid does!" "Aren't I going to be me." "Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get" "I'm pretty tired, I think I'll go home now." "Sometimes I guess there just aren't enough rocks." "and right about that moment I think Lieutenant Dan made his peace with God" " Have you found God Forrest?(Lt)-I din't know i was s'pposed to be lookin' for him!" "...He's got a daddy called Forrest too!!!" "My legs are just fine, but my back is crooked as a question mark." "Her dream had come true. She was a folk singer." "And that's all I have to say about that." "You are stupid, when you act stupid." The last line says it all!!!

Agreed that is a great moment of how naive the character is and how honest he is... it really sums him up very well.

that was not the best part. the best part is when he went to the president award ceremony to get his medal of valor. the president ask him where he got hit by the bullet... and to show it to him sometime. Forrest then stares at him for a moment. Then he turns around, pull down his pants and showed the bullet wound to him. that was the funniest scene ever!

Yes, the way they integrated the real scene and the movie scene is flawless... and a very funny moment indeed.

I Love this Movie, and actually seem to watch it quite often never tiring of it as well. My favorites from this Movie would be either "Run Forrest Run" or "My Momma always told me life was like a Box of chocolates."

It reminds me of Jimmy Stewart's character in "Harvey". "My name is Elwood P. Doud, here is my card" Great lines... how James Stewart lost the 1950 Oscar for best actor for tha movie is beyond me... José Ferrer won it (beating James Stewart and Spencer Tracey). Thanks for the answer. Thanks Zelo

Some great lines in that movie. Forrest picks up that line and uses it later in the movie at least once. Thanks Zelo

They said it was a million dollar wound, but the army must keep that money 'cause I still haven't seen a nickel of that million dollars.

There are two more of my favorite lines.. 'They say it was a million dollar wound but ...the army must keep that money 'cause I still haven't seen a nickel of that million dollars.' 'He liked to say the F-word A LOT .. F this and F that and everytime he said the F word people for some reason well they cheered.'

it pierced my heart when he said "I am not a smart man, but I know what love is" He was of childlike character and low IQ but his heart is normal :D

The famous line may be Life is like a box of chocolate. And I also remember Jenny said to Forrest:"Run, Forrest, run!" Forrest Gump kept on going forward as he kept Jenny's words on mind. I love China
