Lt. Dan Is A Man Of His Word
Forrest swims from his boat to the dock, he climbs up the dock, and greets his friend Lt Dan.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** I am a man of my word. Hi ... I'm Steve Weber, and I'm a man of my word. I'm going to send out 94 for of the Best Movie Scenes from Forrest Gump as a tribute to the movie's 25th anniversary. A promise is a promise. When Forrest told Lt. Dan on New Years Eve that he was going to be a shrimp boat captain, Lt. Dan laughed and mockingly said, "If you're ever a shrimp boat captain, I'll be your first mate." Nobody thought Lt. Dan was serious when he said that and wouldn't have expected him to keep his word. But when he showed up on the dock, Lt. Dan was a man starting the process of pulling out of his funk. He was beginning to leave the dark place that he had been stuck ever since losing his legs in Vietnam. Lt. Dan was beginning his journey back into living. Being alive. Lt. Dan told Forrest, "I am a man of my word." Lt. Dan was keeping his promise. A promise is a promise. He was a man of his word. Let's all be more gump-like. Let's be a person of our word ... let's keep our promises ... let's all live our lives with Gumption.
