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!!!

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!

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

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.'
