Lt. Dan Exercises His Arms
Forrest and Lt. Dan are in New York City crossing the street. Lt Dan starts yelling at the taxis as he continuously sips on his bottle - which he calls exercising his arms.
**-- HERE IS THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT --** Lt. Dan spent lots of time exercising his arms. Hi, I'm Steve Weber ... When the movie Forrest Gump came out in 1994, I had no idea how it would affect my life. That year I was Forrest for Halloween. Then a year and a half later I became Forrest for Bubba Gump Shrimp. Today I'm sharing scene 86 of the 94 best scenes from the movie Forrest Gump. We're counting down to #1 on July 6th of this year. Enjoy. Since he didn't have legs, what else was he gonna do? He exercised his arms. Lt Dan was in a dark place. Exercising his arm was code for drinking from the bottle. Notice the anger that Lt. Dan had as he insists on jaywalking and then yells at the taxi driver. Lt. Dan felt cheated. He was angry and the way he numbed his anger was through drinking - or exercising his arms. 2 years ago I stopped drinking ... I realized that my arms needs less exercise and my mind and the rest of my body need more exercise. It takes Gumption to make a big change in one's life. Lt. Dan wasn't yet ready to accept what happened to him - he eventually would. Let's all try to be a little more gump-like ... let's live our lives with Gumption.
