LT. DAN. Did you hear what I said?






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.

 

FORREST

I'm going to heaven, Lieutenant Dan.

 

LT. DAN

Huh? Ah, well, before you go, why

don't you get your ass down to the

corner and get us another bottle of

wine.

 

FORREST

Yes, sir.

 

INT. TIMES SQUARE BAR - NIGHT

 

A television shows DICK CLARK as he emcees the Times Square

New York Eve celebration.

 

DICK CLARK

We are at approximately 45th Street

in New York City at One Astor Plaza.

This is the site of the old Astor

Hotel. Down below us, well over a

hundred thousand people are milling

about, cheering with horns and

whistles and hats...

 

LT. DAN

What the hell's in Bayou La Batre?

 

FORREST

Shrimpin' boats.

 

LT. DAN

Shrimpin' boats? Who gives a shit

about shrimpin' boats?

 

FORREST

I gotta buy me one of them shrimpin'

boats as soon as I have some money.

I made me a promise to Bubba in

Vietnam, that as soon as the war was

over, we'd go in partners. He'd be

the captain of the shrimpin' boat

and I'd be his first mate. But now

that he's dead, that means that I

gotta be the captain.

 

LT. DAN

A shrimp boat captain.

 

FORREST

Yes, sir. A promise is a promise,

Lieutenant Dan.

 

LT. DAN

Now hear this! Private Gump here is

gonna be a shrimp boat captain. Well,

I tell you what, Gilligan, the day

that you are a shrimp boat captain,

I will come and be your first mate.

 

FORREST

Okay.

 

LT. DAN

If you're ever a shrimp boat captain,

that's the day I'm an astronaut.

 

Two sleazy women, named LENORE and CARLA, walk up to Lt.

Dan.

 

LENORE

Danny, what are you complaining about?

 

CARLA

What are you doing, huh?

 

LENORE

Mr. Hot Wheels. Who's your friend?

 

FORREST

My name is Forrest, Forrest Gump.

 

LT. DAN

This is Cunning Carla, and Long-Limbs

Lenore.

 

Carla puts a " Happy New Year" crown on Lt. Dan's head. Lenore

fixes her makeup.

 

CARLA

So where you been, baby-cakes, huh?

Haven't seen you around lately. You

know, you should have been here for

Christmas 'cause Tommy bought a round

on the house and gave everybody a

turkey sandwich.

 

LT. DAN

Well, well, I had, uh, company.

 

LENORE

Hey, hey! We was, we was just there.

That's at Times Square.

 

Lenore leans and speaks into Forrest's ear.

 

LENORE

Don't you just love New Year's? You

get to start all over.

 

CARLA

Hey, Lenore.

 

LENORE

Everybody gets a second chance.

 

FORREST (V.O.)

It's funny, but in the middle of all

that fun, I began to think about

Jenny.

 

DICK CLARK

(on television)

...getting wild out there. It's

beginning to...
