Trivia

Forrest Gump is in the 9th Infantry Division, as is shown in the Vietnam scenes by the patch on his shoulder (the top is red and the bottom is blue on the color versions of the patch).


Quotes

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


Goofs

While Gump is playing ping pong, a man comes up asking for a PFC Gump (E-3) to notify him he has been awarded the Medal of Honor. In the following scene when he is in DC to be awarded his medal, he is wearing the rank of sergeant (E-5). While it's possible he was promoted between the two scenes, he certainly wouldn't have been promoted two ranks, and at most would have been an E-4 (Specialist or corporal).


Alternate Versions

Two additional historical figure scenes which didn't make the final cut appear on the DVD version:

  • Gump plays Ping-Pong with George H. Bush and hits him in the crotch.
  • Jenny talks to Gump about the fact that she has just been accepted to a college. Gump sees a civil rights march, which he believes is a parade. Guard dogs advance towards Gump, but he is able to fend them off by throwing a stick, since he knew them when he was younger. He apologizes to Martin Luther King for interrupting the "parade," saying they're just dogs and don't know any better.
