After that, shrimpin' was easy. And since people still needed them shrimps for shrimp ****tails and barbecues and all. And since we were the only boat left standing, "Bubba-Gump" shrimp's what they got. We got a whole bunch of boats. Twelve Jenny's, a big ol' warehouse, we even have hats that says "Bubba-Gump" on 'em. "Bubba-Gump Shrimp." It's a household name.

And that's all I have to say about that.

Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo.

There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich... [pauses] That- that's about it. [The scene changes constantly as Bubba goes on]

Bubba was my best good friend, I had to make sure he was okay. And on my way back to find Bubba, well, there was this boy laying on the ground.

And every time I went back looking for Bubba, somebody else was saying, "Help me, Forrest. Help me."

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.

And, since number one; I wasn't hungry, but thirsty. And number two; they was free. I must o' drank me about fifteen Dr Peppers.

Dear God, make me a bird, so I can fly far, far far away from here.
