Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?
Forrest claims his famous run back and forth across the country took three years and two months. However, when he begins the run, a television article shows former President Jimmy Carter collapsing from heat exhaustion, which took place on October 1, 1979. Forrest stops the run on receiving a letter from Jenny; a scene showing the attempted assassination of former President Ronald Reagan is on a television screen. This assassination attempt happened March 30, 1981. This would put the total duration of Forrest's run at one year and six months.
In the TBS version and probably as well in the ABC version, the line at the end of the dorm scene is cut, "I think I ruined your roommate's bath robe".
