Forrest Gump

if you'd be agree able to saying
you like using their paddle.

I only like using
my own paddle.

Hi, Miss Louise.
Hey, Forrest.
I know that,
but it's $25,000, Forrest.

I thought maybe
you could hold it for a while,

see if it grows on you.
That Mama, shesure was right.
It's funny how things work out.
I didn't stay home for long
because I'd made
apromise to Bubba,

and I always try
to keep my promise,

so I went on down
to Bayou La Batre

to meet Bubba's family.
Are you crazy
or just plain stupid?

Stupid is as stupid does,
Mrs. Blue.

I guess.
And, of course,
I paid my respect
to Bubba himself.

Hey, Bubba.
It's me, Forrest Gump.

I remember everything
you said,

and I got it
all figured out.

I'm taking $24,562.47
that I got, that's left
after a new hair cut
and a newsuit

and to ok Mama out
to a real fancy dinner,

and I bought a bus ticket,
then three Dr. Peppers.

Tell me something.
Are you stupid or something?
Stupid is as stupid does, sir.
That's what's left
after me saying,

"When I was in China on
the all-America Ping-Pong team,

"I just loved
playing Ping-Pong

with my Flex-O-Lite
Ping-Pong paddle,"

which everybody knows isn't true,
but Mama said it wasjust
a little white lie,

so it wasn't hurting nobody.
So anyway ,
I'm putting all that

on gas, ropes, and new nets
and a brand-new shrimping boat.
