**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** The Watergate Hotel. Hi, I'm Steve Weber and today's scene #55 is about noticing when something is out of the ordinary and then speaking up when you notice it. I've created this series of 94 of the best scenes from the movie Forrest Gump to celebrate this year being the movie's 25th anniversary. This is another one of those magical scenes in the movie where the producers mix historical footage with Forrest Gump placed right into the scene. It's a combination of truth and fiction. The Watergate burglary did take place. It did take down the Presidency of Richard Nixon. The implication being that Forrest Gump was took down a Presidency. And it all happened at the Watergate Hotel after President Nixon arranged for Forrest to stay there. It takes Gumption to notice something that seems out of order. It takes Gumption to speak up when you see something out of order. Forrest Gump had Gumption. Do you want to be more gump-like? ... Pay attention and notice when something is out of order. And, speak up when something that something is out order. Let's learn to live our lives with Gumption.
