Trivia

When Forrest first learns to play ping-pong in the infirmary, he is told the trick is to "keep his eye on the ball" by another soldier. After that moment, whenever he is shown playing ping-pong, he never blinks.


Quotes

Forrest Gump: Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?


Goofs

Using George Wallace symbolic blocking of the doorway to the University of Alabama (11 June 1963) as a time reference, we know that Forrest is named to the college football All-America team in 1963 where he later meets John F. Kennedy. However, the Associated Press announced their All-America team on 6 Dec 1963 - two weeks after JFK was assassinated. Forrest Gump should never have met JFK.
