Forrest: "I'm taking the $24,562.47 that I got, that's left after a new haircut and a new suit and took Mama out to a real fancy dinner, and I bought a bus ticket, then three Dr. Peppers."
Stanley Loomis: "Tell me something. Are you stupid or something?"
Forrest: "Stupid is as stupid does, sir. That's what's left after me saying, "When I was in China on the all-American 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 was just 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."
