**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** You're his daddy. Hi ... I'm Steve Weber and while I've never had the surprise of learning that I'm a daddy, I love this scene because of Forrest's reaction - shock and awe. Here is scene #6 of the 25 best scenes and life lessons from the movie Forrest Gump to celebrate it's 25th anniversary. Jenny tells Forrest that her son's name is Forrest. And that she named him after his daddy. Naively Forrest asks, "He's got a daddy named Forrest, too?" Jenny responds, "You're his daddy, Forrest." We receive news about events all the time. Rarely. Only once in a great while. Do we receive news that changes everything. When Forrest learned he was a father. It was a game-changer. Jenny didn't want Forrest to worry or feel obligated. In fact, she told him he didn't do anything wrong. But Forrest was about to be a changed man. He was about to step up to the plate as a daddy. It take gumption to step up to the plate and embrace the responsibilities that life throws at us. Do you want to be more gump-like? ...
