Mrs.Gump: What does normal mean, anyway? He might be a bit on the slow side. But my boy, Forrest, is going to get the same opportunities as everyone else. He’s not going to some special school to learn how to retread© tires. We’re talking about five little points here. There must be something can be done.
Mr.Hillcock: We’re a progressive school system. We don’t want to see anybody left behind. Is there a ...Mr. Gump, Mrs. Gump?
Mrs.Gump: He’s on vacation.
Mr.Hillcock: Eee,Eee,Eee… Your mama sure does care about your schooling, son. You don’t say much, do you?
Mrs.Gump: (reading to Forrest) Finally, he had to try. It looked easy but... oh, what happened?
Gump: Mama, what’s “vacation” mean?
Gump: Where daddy went?
Mrs.Gump: Vacation is when you go somewhere and you don’t ever come back.
Forrest: Anyway, I guess you could say me and mama was on our own. But we didn’t mind. Our house was never empty. There was always folks coming and going. Sometimes we had so many people staying with us that every room was filled with travelers. You know, folks livin’ out of their suitcases and hat cases, and sample cases. One time a young man was staying with us and he had him a guitar case.
(Forrest Dances as the traveler sings “Hound Dog”)
Mrs.Gump: Forrest, I told you not to bother this nice young man.
Elvis Presley: No, that’s alright Ma’am. I was just showing him a thing or two on the guitar here.
Mrs.Gump: Alright. Supper’s ready if y’all want to eat.
Elvis: Yeah, that sounds good. Thank you, Ma’am. Say, man, show me that crazy little walk you just did there. Slow it down some. “You ain’t© nothing but a hound dog...”
Forrest: I liked that guitar. It sounded good. I started moving around to the music, swingin’ my hips. This night, me and mama was out shoppin’ and we walked right by Pitsey’s Furniture and Appliance store. Guess what.?.. (Elvis was on TV Dancing the way that Forrest taught him)
Mrs.Gump: This is not for children’s eyes.
Forrest: Some years later, that handsome young man who they called “The King”, well, he sang too many songs, had himself a heart attack or something. Must be hard being the king... You know it’s funny how you remember some things. But some things you can’t.
Mrs.Gump: You do your very best now, Forrest.
Gump: I sure will, mama.
Forrest: I remember the bus ride on the first day of school very well. Dorothy: Are you coming along?
Gump: Mama said not to be taken rides from strangers.
Dorothy: This is the bus to school. Gump: I’m Forrest, Forrest Gump.
Dorothy: I’m Dorothy Harris. Gump: Well, now we ain’t strangers anymore. Kid: This seat’s taken.
Other Kids: Taken. Different Kid: You can’t sit here.
Forrest: 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. 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.
Little Jenny: You can sit here if you want.
Forrest: I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life. She was like an angel.
