Scene 18

Scene 18

  • While footage of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan plays in the background, Forrest gets a letter from Jenny asking him to come to Savannah, Georgia, to visit her on Henry Street. She's thought about him after seeing him running on TV.
  • Why, that's right nearby, says the woman next to Forrest on the bench. And off Forrest runs.
  • Jenny apologizes to Forrest for taking him for granted, just as a woman comes by and drops off a young boy. Jenny is a mom! And, guess what? Forrest is a dad!
  • Jenny must have gotten pregnant after she and Forrest slept together in his house three years ago.
  • Forrest kind of freaks when he hears the boy is his. His first question is whether the boy is smart, and Jenny tells him their son is one of the smartest kids in his class.
  • Forrest goes into the next room and sits next to the boy. Together, they watch Sesame Street.
