Forrest Gump:
[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 sweetest voice in the wide world.

Young Jenny:

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]

Young 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 as a question mark. These shoes are gonna make me as straight as an arrow. They're my magic shoes.

Forrest Gump:

Young Jenny:

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.
