Boy #1: This seat's taken.
Boy #2: It's taken!
Boy #3: You can't sit here.
Forrest: [narrating] You know, it's funny what a young man recollects. 'Cause I don't remember being born. I, 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 sweetiest voice in the wide world.
Young Jenny: You can sit here if you want.
Forrest Gump: [narrating] I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life. She was like an angel.
Young Jenny: Well, are you gonna sit down, or aren't ya? [Young Forrest sits down next to Jenny] What's wrong with your legs?
Young Forrest: Um, nothing at all, thank you. My legs are just fine and dandy.
Young Jenny: Then why do you have those shoes on?
Young Forrest: Momma says my back is as crooked at a question mark
Forrest Gump: [narrating] I just sat next to her on that bus and had conversation all the way to school. And next to Momma, no one ever talked to me or asked me questions.
Young Jenny: Are you stupid or something?
Young Forrest: Momma says stupid is as stupid does.
Young Jenny: I'm Jenny.
Young Forrest: I'm Forrest . Forrest Gump.
Forrest Gump: [narrating] From that day on, we was always together. Jenny and me was like peas and carrots.
