Forrest Gump:
Hello. I'm Forrest, Forrest Gump.

Recruit Officer:
Nobody gives a horse's sh*t who you are, fuzzball! You're not even a low-life, scum-sucking maggot! Get your faggoty ass on the bus, you're in the Army now!

[Forrest quickly gets on the Army bus.]

Recruit #1:
Seat's taken.

Recruit #2:
Taken.

Forrest Gump:
[describing his induction] At first it seemed like I made a mistake, seeing how it was my induction day and I was already gettin' yelled at.

Bubba Blue:
You can sit down... if you want to.

[Forrest sits down next to Bubba.]

Forrest Gump:
[narrating] I didn't know who I might meet or what they might ask?

Bubba Blue:
Have you ever been on a real shrimp boat?

Forrest Gump:
No, but I've been on a real big boat.

Bubba Blue:
I'm talkin' about a shrimp-catchin' boat. I've been workin' on shrimp boats all my life. I started out on my uncle's boat, that's my mother's brother, when I was maybe about nine. I was just lookin' into buyin' a boat of my own and got drafted. My given name is Benjamin Buford Blue, but people call me "Bubba." Just like one o' them ol' redneck boys; can you believe that?

Forrest Gump:
My name's Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump.

Forrest Gump:
[narrating] So Bubba was from Bayou La Batre, Alabama, and his momma cooked shrimp. And her momma before her cooked shrimp. And her momma before her momma cooked shrimp, too. Bubba family knew everything there was to know about the shrimpin' business.

Bubba Blue:
I know ever'thing there is to know about the shrimpin' business. Matter of fact, I'm goin' into the shrimpin' business for myself after I get out o' the Army.

Forrest Gump:
Okay.
