** However, the movie showed him taking a drink from a paper-wrapped bottle at the moment that line was uttered, so it could also imply that his "exercise" consisted mainly of [[INeedAFreakingDrink "twelve-ounce curls."]]

** This is actually a historical reference of sorts: Johnson himself had a scar from a war wound in his abdomen, which he was known to show off behind closed doors. In the book, he does this very thing to Forrest, who reciprocates by showing his own wound. Since there is no footage of Johnson pulling up his shirt to display his scars, the reference is somewhat lost in the film.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Does this with Jenny (making her a vapid party girl), Forrest's mom (who loved her son but was much less in charge), and to an extent Forrest himself, who in the books is an idiot savant and much less InspirationallyDisadvantaged. For example, in the novel, it's Jenny who winds up pressuring Forrest to stop meandering from one weird occupation to the next and finally settle down, Lieutenant Dan is arguably just using Forrest's abilities in a series of money-making schemes, Bubba has no mental deficiency at all, and Forrest himself is much more crass and outspoken. The movie has been accused of promoting a conservative agenda, but this may have just been an attempt to turn it into a nostalgia trip for Baby Boomers without getting political at all. For example, Forrest refers to the Vietnam war as "a bunch of shit" multiple times in the novel, farts in public, and uses racial epithets toward both blacks and Asians.

* TheVietnamVet: Both the titular character, and Lt. Dan. For the former it was just a period in his life, whereas for the latter, it ruined much of his life, and he was nothing but a bum until he ran into Forrest who gave him a job as first mate on his vessel.
