so i'm watching Forrest Gump right now.....

You know the scene when Forrest is in his army uniform and Jenny is gettin on the bus? Why does he shout when he says "I think you should go home to Greenbow ALABAMA!!!"?

  • Didnt she tell him to leave or to go away? I cant remember. Dang. Thats going to bug me. Lol. Or maybe he just knew she needed to be "home" and not out becomging a druggie.

  • Oohhh that's what I thought but I could never figure out why he wanted her man to know she was from Alabama...

  • He was saying it to Jenny's boyfriend who hit her....Forest thinks the man is an asshole so when he was saying Alabama like that he was pretty much telling Jenny that she doesn't need that guy. And he was saying it loud enough to make that clear to Jenny's boyfriend.
