Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?
Film shows Forrest Gump helping him cover the Watergate break-in by complaining to hotel security about lights being on opposite his room. In reality, the burglars were discovered because of Alert security guard Frank Wills. While on his rounds, Wills discovered tape over a door lock. Thinking that a deliveryman had put it there during the day, Wills removed the tape, but when he made his rounds again the tape had been replaced. This alerted Wills to the fact that someone was still in the office complex.
