* Mrs. Blue, who comes from a long line of servants and slaves, receiving Bubba's share of the money and moving to a Florida condo. With a white housekeeper. And extra points for Mrs. Blue ''not'' making this a WhosLaughingNow moment, but being more friendly to the housekeeper than her employers ever were to her.

* Forrest deciding on a whim to just start running, ''and not stopping for anything other than primal urges (eat, sleep, poop) for three years.'' ''From coast-to-coast''.

** What really makes this scene is Gump isn't ''trying'' to be heroic. He's trying to find Bubba, and keeps coming across fellow Marines wounded in the ambush. He doesn't pick them up and carry them to safety because he's ''brave'', he does it because he's a decent person and it's the decent thing to do, and he's just too straightforward to think about it.

* For someone as dumb as Forrest he does show some badass moments when during the ambush, as he was seen as one of the men firing back.

* For someone as dumb as Forrest he does show some badass moments when during the ambush, as ambush: he was seen as one of the men firing back.back, he admitted that he was scared but never once panicked, ran ''back'' into the fray to look for Bubba, and still held himself together when realizing one of his squad mates next to Lt. Dan was dead. Forrest did what Jenny and Bubba told him to- to run- but he was certainly no coward.

* At boot camp, Gump is so good at assembling his [[CoolGuns/BattleRifles M14]], that he even earns praise from the Sergeant:
-->'''Gump:''' DONE, DRILL SERGEANT!\\
'''Drill Sergeant:''' GUUUUUUMP! WHY DID YOU PUT THAT WEAPON TOGETHER SO QUICKLY, GUMP?\\
'''Gump:''' You told me to, Drill Sergeant?\\
'''Drill Sergeant:''' JESUS H. CHRIST! This is a new company record! If it wouldn't be a waste of such a damn fine enlisted man, I'd recommend you for OCS, Private Gump! YOU ARE GONNA BE A GENERAL SOMEDAY, GUMP, NOW DISASSEMBLE YOUR WEAPON AND CONTINUE!

** Matched if not topped by Forrest catching sight of Jenny's hippie boyfriend slapping her in the face at the Black Panther "party" and running over, doing a full-body tackle and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beating the shit of the little creep]].
