Second episode. Not sure if this is any good. This one is about sexual assault. How the behaviour develops. Or it's a fucking joke. Who knows?
I think the third one is the best, frankly. It is about WAR.
Anyway I'm going to put two up now and then put up something different because fuck this for a game of soldiers.

INT. UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA CAMPUS - BLACK & WHITE TELEVISION STUDENT UNION BUILDING(AUGUST 11, 1962)
An anchorman named FLOYD “Big Tuna” KALBER appears over the television.
INT. COACHES' OFFICE, PENNSYLVANIA UNIVERSITY - THE NEXT DAY
BIG TUNA (on TV)
“Floyd “Big Tuna” Kalber reporting, today, from the Univerity of Chicago where students are involved in a sit-in protest of segregation issues.”
Coach Jones looks up from his desk to a black and white television as a newsman outside the schoolhouse speaks to the camera.
BIG TUNA (live at the schoolhouse, on TV)
...block the doorway, President Kennedy then ordered the Secretary of Defense then to use the military force.
BLACK AND WHITE FOOTAGE The footage cuts to Governor Otto Kerner Jr. as he speaks to General Koch.
Here by videotape is the encounter by General Koch, Commander of the National Guard, and Governor Otto Kerner Jr..
Forrest is standing in front crowd gathered around Otto Kerner Jr. Forrest is holding a handful of rocks.
COACH JONES (at the television)
Is that Forrest?
OTTO KERNER Jr.
...our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal. The city of Chicago is saturated with fear. The National Guardsmen are afraid, the citizens are afraid, and the police are afraid...
EXT. UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO
Some of the Chicago policemen and citizens clash as the National Guardsmen stand at attention with their weapons in front of them. Forrest shouts curses and throws one stone. The projectile sparks more pushing as the atmosphere turn more violent. Several black students are walking to join the sit-in.
And so at day's end the University of Chicago has been desegregated and students have been given greater protections in housing issues...
A young black girl drops one of her books in the background of the filming. Forrest notices. He steps past the policemen toward the book on the ground. Forrest steps out from the crowd and picks up the book then returns to the crowd before throwing it at the girl, striking her in the head.
Ma'am, you dropped your book.
The girl is bent over on the ground holding her head where the book hit her. A policeman puts a hand on her shoulder and shouts.
Who threw that book?
Forrest points at a bald bespectacled rights activists, BERNIE SANDERS. The policeman grabs the man and hauls him off into a police van. As Bernie Sanders is taken away he struggles and shouts.
Well, huh, you know, excuse me, that guy right there...he did it! I'm a civil rights activists, I am here in support of that woman. I mean really, that guy with the weird hair... he definitely threw it. Come on! For goodness sake, he’s wearing golden sho…
Sanders is pushed into the van and strikes his head on the top of door. The policeman slaps the door twice.
A kike protecting a nigger. Not in my country.
The van drives away.
INT. COACHES' OFFICE - NIGHT (1963)
Coach Jones looks at the television. The television reveals Forrest as he stands at the schoolhouse door. Forrest looks around and then extends his middle finger.
BIG TUNA (on TV)
Governor Kerner did what he promised to do. By being on the Chicago campus, he kept the mob from becoming truly violence. There was only one arrest, of a rights activist who sustained mild head injuries.
An assistant coach looks at the television, then at the other coaches.
Say, wasn't that Forrest?
The Coach Jones and two assistant coaches look. They both look back at the shower. Forrest has flown back the same day and is showering in the change rooms. He dries himself off with a towel as he steps from the showers.
BIG TUNA (on TV)
News will present a special program on the Chicago integration story at 7:30 p.m. tonight...
It sure as hell was. I am one hundred percent sure. You seen hair like that on anyone else?
And Forrest, you hear me boy? My last warning, shower at your office or wherever the hell you live!
ASSISTANT COACH (whispering)
How did… how was he in two places at once?
COACH JONES (whispering)
Forrest owns a helicopter.
...standard Eastern Daylight Time. Now a word from Anacin.
Forrest steps up to the coaches' area and grabs a fourth clean towel. The coaches turn to stare at the naked Forrest. Forrest gives them one of his silly waves, then walks away.
COLOR FOOTAGE - Governor Kerner waves to the crowd as he stands behind a podium with his wife.
A few years later, that angry little man at the schoolhouse door thought it would be a good idea, and ran for President.
COLOR FOOTAGE - Governor Kerner mingles in a crowd. Gunshots are fired, wounding him. Some men wrestle the shooter, Joe Cob, to the ground. Kerner lies wounded on the ground, moaning.
I paid somebody who thought it wasn't such a good idea. My best special friend Joe Cob.
EXT. MANHATTAN, NEW YORK, 5TH AVENUE/BUS BENCH - DAY (1983)
Forrest sits on the bench as the black woman looks at him. She has woken. Tears remain on her cheek from a forgotten nightmare. A WHITE WOMAN with a tiny baby sits left.
But he didn't die.
A bus pulls up to the bus stop.
The BLACK WOMAN looks down at her watch. The hands of the watch have stopped dead.
My bus is here.
The black woman makes the sign of the cross.
Is it the number 9?
No, it's the number… you know I cannot see. I have to go…
The Black Woman gets up and runs to the bus.
It was nice talkin' to you.
The Black woman bashes impatiently on the bus door, occasionally glancing backward. She trips while clambering to get aboard, falling into the bus. The white woman slides further from Forrest. The black woman lies on the ground of the bus, completely still, as the doors close.
I remember when that happened, when Kerner got shot. I was in college.
Did you go to a girls' college, or to a girls' and boys' together college?
It was co-ed.
Gross. When I got my momma’s lawyer to release Joe, he could only get into a college that I couldn't go to. It was a college for poor people.
The woman looks nervously at her tiny baby. It is crying, desperate for food. She does not dare take her breast out.
WHITE WOMAN (cooing the first line)
Later, tiny baby, when we are safe… ummm… who is Joe?
STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK IN PURCHASE/JOE'S DORM - NIGHT (1963)
Forrest sits outside Joe's dorm in the rain.
My best special friend, who I'd go and visit every chance I got.
A car pulls up. A song is heard from the radio. Forrest, holding a box of chocolates, looks at the car. The two people inside the car begins to kiss and embrace each other. Joe is inside the car with a GIRL. She leans back against the passenger side door as they struggle to get comfortable.
Ouch! That hurts.
Forrest gets up and runs toward the car. He tries to look in the window as he steps over to the driver's side door. He eats the chocolate as he watches. He discards the empty packet and opens the door. He begins grabbing the vagina of the girl inside. She squeals. Joe jumps out of the car and runs over to Forrest.
Forrest! Forrest! Forrest, stop it! Stop it!
Jesus! Did he just grab my privates?
What are you doing?
You were having fun without me.
Joe's date, named BILLIE, gets out of the car angrily.
What the hell is going on here?
He’s nothing to me, he's not!
Who is that? Who is that?
Joe shouts this at Forrest before he turns and looks at Billie. Billie shoves Joe's hands away from her.
Billie, I'm sorry.
What in the hell, git, would you git away from me!
Don't... Wait a second!
Git, just git away from me!
Don't go! Billie, wait a second!
Billie gets back into the car.
He doesn't know any better!
Billie pulls away as Joe steps toward Forrest.
Forrest, why'd you do that?
Forrest points at the empty box of chocolates on the ground.
I brought you some chocolates.
Forrest, you can’t come here. I will get a restraining order.
You sounds just like pappy! Let’s hang out. I miss my dad.
Don’t ever do that again. Grab other vaginas, never with me.
INT. JOE'S DORM/HALLWAY
Joe and Forrest walk loudly down the dark hallway as they find Joe’s door.
Is this your room? Ugh.
Joe unlocks the door and they step inside.
INT. Joe'S DORM ROOM
Joe gives Forrest a bathrobe as Forrest begins to undress. Joe watches Forrest struggle with his wet pants before Joe decides to put a sheet over the single lamp in the room but enough light still escapes to highlight Forrest’s horrific outline. Forrest climbs into bed.
I collected these, you might like them.
Joe pulls out a small box underneath his sleeping roommate's bed. The roommate is facing away from Joe and Forrest. The roommate struggles to feign sleep as the other two talk loudly. In the bed the roommate is glowing from intense stress. Light emanates from the edges of the banket. Joe takes a pile of used female undergarments from the box and hands them to Forrest. Forrest looks through the soiled underwear.
Joe lies back next to Forrest.
Do you ever dream, Forrest, about who you're gonna be?
Aren't I going to be me?
Well, you'll always be you, just another kind of you. You know? I want to be famous.
Joe picks up a nudie magazine, then walks back toward Forrest. Joe shifts his jeans around the crotch.
I want to be a singer like Bobby Rydell. I just want to be an empty stage with my guitar, my voice... just me.
Joe puts his hand down the front of his jeans and sits on the bed next to Forrest. Forrest looks at Joe’s magazine like he's never seen a naked woman before. Forrest puts the underwear aside.
And I want to reach people on a personal level. I want to be able to say things, just one-to-one.
Forrest looks down at Joe's crotch. Joe realizes Forrest is looking at him. Joe turns the radio on full volume. He has to raise his voice to be heard over the noise.
Have you ever been with a girl yet, Forrest?
I sit next to them in my economics class all the time.
DJ (over radio)
You're listening to WABC-AM in New York City, the clear A.M. voice of the Big Apple. I'm Dan Ingram...
Forrest looks at Joe as he removes his jeans and shirt. Forrest looks away, ashamed. Joe takes his hand and guides it to his erection.
DJ (over radio)
...coming to you on a night that is anything but clear. The weatherman says that rain's gonna fall all night long so stay with us, get warm, get cozy, get under the covers to the groovy sounds of WABC-AM.
Forrest looks over at Joe's chest, then shudders as he has an orgasm.
Ohh... Oh... I'm sorry. Sorry.
DJ (over radio)
...444-6666, with ya till sunrise, playing the music you want to hear when you want to hear it. If you have a request or dedication, give us a call. We guarantee you'll hear your requests within one hour.
Forrest breathes heavily. Joe puts his jeans and shirt back on.
It's all right.
Joe leans over and punches Forrest's shoulder.
DJ (over radio)
Candy is on the line tonight. Candy's answering the phones, give Candy your request, your dedication, and ask her why she won't go out with me, would you? Here's more music.
Oh, I'm dizzy.
A song is coming over the radio. Joe sticks a wet finger in Forrest’s ear.
I bet that never happened in economics.
Joe laughs and pinches Forrest on the leg. Forrest and Joe sit silently as Joe's roommate pretends to be asleep, listening, horrified, with eyes tightly shut. Small flames have appeared at the edges of the blanket, the heat of the roommate’s stress sparks fire.
I think I ruined your roommate's bathrobe.
I don't care. I don't like him, anyway.
At this, the roommate jumps from bed, running and screaming through the halls of the dorm. The fire alarms activate, the ringing mixing with the sexy tunes of WABC-AM.
EXT. UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA/FOOTBALL STADIUM - DAY (1963)
Forrest runs across the field as the defending team chases him. The crowd yells for Forrest. They flip a sign that reads: "Go Forrest." The player with Forrest on his Jersey is actually Joe dressed as Forrest. After being expelled, his only option was to continue playing as Forrest. The view switches to the eye hole of the team’s mascot. You hear Forrest’s heavy breathing coming from inside the suit as he watches the disguised Joe. Forrest is dressed as the Penn mascot, the Quaker.
Run! Run! Run!
Joe runs along the field. The crowd cheers.
Run! Run! Run!
Joe runs into the end zone. The band members rush toward Joe with their hands up, signaling him to stop. The crowd flips over cards, creating a sign that reads "STOP."
Joe stops in the end zone as he hears the crowd yell. The band motions for Joe to stop and stay in the end zone. A group of defending players fall over each other in the end zone. Joe Cob looks as the crowd cheers wildly and hangs his head.
Joe could never stop running because I wasn’t able to tell him to stop. What a wimp. Anyway, college ran by real fast 'cause I watched myself play so much football. Coach told me that Joe disappeared after the last game of the season, left town. Coach said to forget about him. Some classmates even told me he kilt himself after that game but I laughed at them and told em Joe would never would. Joe always said I would kill him one day. He was my best friend, he wouldn’t lie to me.
BLACK AND WHITE PARAMOUNT NEWSREEL - DAY (1963)
The White House with the words "The eyes and ears of the world Paramount News" superimposed.
They even put me on a thing called the All-America Team where you get to meet the President of the United States.
BLACK AND WHITE NEWSREEL PRESIDENT KENNEDY holds an autographed football as the All-American Team stands behind him. Forrest is among the players in suits. He is far fatter than any of the other team mates.
ANNOUNCER (over newsreel)
President Kennedy met with the Collegiate All-American Football Team at the Oval Office today.
INT. WHITE HOUSE RECEPTION AREA - DAY (1963)
The All-American players mingle around the food table. It is a large spread of food and soda is on the table.. Each meat dish is a surf and turf combination. Octopus tentacles sprawl out of a chicken carcass. A fish head sticks out the mouth of a suckling pig. Forrest steps up to the table and touches most dishes with his hands.
Now, the real good thing about meeting the President of the United States is the food table.
orrest takes a bottle of Dr. Pepper from the buffet table. Numerous bottle of Dr. Pepper are displayed on the table. A servant opens the bottle for him.
They put you in this little room with just about anything you'd want to eat or drink. And since number one, I was hungry and thirsty...
Forrest begins to guzzle the Dr. Pepper. He only breaks to shove bigs hunks of a hard-shell crab into his mouth. He barely crunches the shell as he washes down the food with Dr. Pepper.
...and number two, they was free, I musta drank me about thirty-seven Dr. Peppers.
Forrest sets down an empty Dr. Pepper bottle next to a large number of other empty bottles. The bottle causes a chain reaction, knocking down most of the other bottles. The room goes quiet from the sound of glass breaking. The calm gives Forrest the opportunity to hold his stomach and burp.
BLACK AND WHITE FOOTAGE - President Kennedy shakes hands with the All-American football players.
Congratulations. How does it feel to be an All-American?
It's an honor, Sir.
Another player steps up to the President and shakes the President's hand.
Congratulations. How does it feel to be an All-American?
Very good, Sir.
Congratulations. How does it feel to be an All-American?
Very good, Sir.
The player walks away. Forrest steps up to the President. The President shakes his hand after Forrest wipes excessive palm sweat on the seat of his pants.
Congratulations. How do you feel?
I gotta pee.
President Kennedy turns and smiles. He pats Trump on his belly.
I believe he said he had to go pee.
INT. WHITE HOUSE/BATHROOM
Forrest urinates in the bathroom, then leaves without flushing or washing his hands. He notices an autographed photo from Marilyn Monroe and a photo of John with his brother Bobby. Forrest picks up the photo of Marilyn, opening his lips, before going back into one of the bathrooms stalls.
Sometime later, for no particular reason, somebody shot that President. The President who found it funny I had to pee. If I were President I would take peeing seriously. Anyway, he was shot when he was ridin' in his car.
ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE - DAY SLOW MOTION - President Kennedy rises in a convertible and smiles. The top of his head is missing.
And a few years after that...
ARCHIVAL FOOTAGE - Marilyn Monroe appears, holding her hands in front of a camera.
...I found out Marilyn Monroe died. She overdosed. What a loser. Sad. I never got to meet her and show her how I do it.
The V.O. out fades as Forrest begins making grunting noises.
EXT. EXT. MANHATTAN, NEW YORK, 5TH AVENUE/BUS BENCH - DAY (1983)
Forrest sits on the bench and shakes his head.
It must be hard not being a Trump. I wouldn't know.
EXT. UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA - DAY - GRADUATION DAY (1966)
Students in their caps and gowns step forward the podium to receive diplomas. Forrest's name is called four times before he steps up to the stage. One of the students that is waiting behind him guides Forrest to the spot where he can accept his diploma.
Now can you believe it? After only five years of Joe playing football, I got a college degree.
Forrest's shakes the Dean’s hand vigorously. Forrest looks out into the crowd.
Mrs. Trump, sitting in the audience, coughs before leaving her seat to go to the bathroom.
Momma was proud.
Forrest has his picture taken in front of a large statue by his Chauffeur. A military recruiter spots Forrest and steps up to him. Mrs. Trump comes back from the toilet, blowing her red nose.
Forrest, I need to leave, momma has the drink sickness. Here, Chauffeur hold this for him.
Chauffeur takes the diploma from Forrest. The recruiter slaps Forrest on the shoulder and hands him some military literature.
Congratulations, son. Have you given any thought to your future?
Forrest looks into the distance for a long time. In the background of the image of his chaotic face, Mrs. Trump nods to the Military Recruiter while pointing at her son. The Military Recruiter nods in agreement. Then she gives him an address card as she points at his uniform and nods affirmatively while grabbing his crotch. Forrest then looks at a pamphlet with a photo of "Uncle Sam" and the caption "EXCELLENT CAREERS FOR EXCELLENT YOUNG MAN. Apply now at your local U.S. Army Recruiting Center."
INT. ARMY BUS - DAY (1966)
Forrest steps onto the army bus. Rain pours outside as the army bus driver yells at Forrest.
ARMY BUS DRIVER
Nobody gives a hunk of shit who you are, fuzzball! You're not even a lowlife scum sucking maggot! Get your faggoty ass on the bus. You're in the Army now!
Forrest is about to sit on the first available seat, but the recruit sitting there refuses Forrest. The recruit spits on the seat.
This seat's taken.
Forrest tries to sit on the next seat, but the 2nd recruit slides over, blocking him.
It's taken. Forrest steps forward, looking much like he did in his school classroom years ago.
At first, it seemed like I made a mistake.
A large white recruit with a strange look on his face, much like Forrest's, looks up from his seat. His name is Bubbles.
...seeing how it was my induction day and I was already gettin' yelled at.
Bubbles moves his case over, making room for Forrest to sit down.
You can sit down... if you want to.
I didn't know who I might meet or what they might ask.
Bubbles hands Forrest a paper napkin after noticing the heavy sweat over Forrest’s body.
You ever been to an oilfield?
No, but I been on a real big boat.
Okay… I'm talkin' about drilling for oil. I've been workin' in oilfields all my life. I started out my uncle's oilfield, that's my mother's brother, when I was about maybe nine. I was just lookin' into buyin' an oilfield of my own and got drafted. My given name is Mike Pence but everyone calls me Bubbles.
Bubbles and Forrest shake hands.
People call me Bubbles. Just like a monkey. Can you believe that?
My name's Forrest Trump. People call me Forrest Trump.
So Bubbles was from Columbus, Indiana, where his poppa drilled for oil...
INT. INDIANA/KITCHEN - DAY (1966)
A robust black woman in a cook's uniform, carries a bowl of shrimp into a dining room. She sets it down on a table in front of a wealthy white man, Bubbles’s father.
They were so rich they ate shrimp every night. And his pappa before him ate shrimp.
INT. SOMEWHERE IN THE SOUTH/KITCHEN - DAY (EARLY DAYS OF SLAVERY)
A robust black woman in a cook's uniform carries a bowl of shrimp into a dining room. She sets it down on a table in front of a wealthy white man.
And his pappy before his pappa ate shrimp, too. Bubbles's family knew everything about eating shrimp...
INT. ARMY BUS - DAY (1966)
...and he knew all there was to know about the oil business.
I know everything there is to know about the oil business. Matter of fact, I'm goin' into the oil business for myself after I get out the Army.
INT. BARRACKS - DAY
A DRILL SERGEANT is in Forrest's face as Forrest stands in line with the other recruits.
Trump! What's your sole purpose in this Army?
I momma told me to come here, Sir Sargeant!
Goddamnit, Trump! You're a goddamned genius! I don't even know how to start making fun of you. That is by far the worst answer I've ever heard to that question. I have reached a zen like calm from the pure rage I am experiencing. You must have a goddamned I.Q. of sixty! You are one goddamned special sack of shit Private Trump!
The Drill Sergeant moves down the line to the next man.
Listen up, people...
Now, for some reason, I fit in the Army like money does in the cash machine slot. It's not really hard. You just pay someone to tidy your bed real neat and remember to not wear your golden shoes.
...that mother of yours is one very intelligent individual Trump! All of you listen to Momma Trump’s words. It’s time about y'all left the tit.
And always answer every question with "Yes, Sir Drill Sergeant!"
Is that clear?
Yes, Drill Sergeant!
Yes, Sir Drill Sergeant!
The recruits are sitting at the base of their bunks assembling their rifles. Bubbles speaks to Forrest.
What you do is you just put a long tube into the ground and suck up the oil. On a good day, you can pull up over a hundred pounds. If everything goes alright, two men oiled up for ten hours, less what you spends on food and water, you can...
Forrest finishes assembling his rifle as the other recruits are still working on theirs.
Done, Sir Drill Sergeant!
The Drill Sergeant rushes up to Forrest.
Why did you put that weapon together that way, Trump?
You told me to put it together, Sir Drill Sergeant.
The Drill Sergeant looks at his stopwatch.
Jesus Christ! This is could be a new company record. I almost want to make you fire the gun so I can see it explode in your tiny hands. You are gonna be a General someday, Trump!
The Drill Sergeant takes a brief case next to Forrest marked "ARMY" and walks away. Forrest begins to bend his rifle on the end of his table. After the Drill Sergeant walks past Bubbles, Bubbles looks up at Forrest. Bubbles continues talking about oil in his squeeky Middle-American drawl.
Anyway, like I was sayin', oil is the fruit of the underground. You can burn it, boil it, broil it, barrel it, sell it. There, uh, oil cars, oil trains...
Forrest watches as Bubbles shines their boots.
...oil cookers, oil tychoons, unleaded, diesel. There's crude oil, engine oil, cooking oil, whale oil...
Forrest watches as Bubbles is on his hands and knees, scrubbing the floor with a toothbrush.
...oil stocks, oil wars, oil tax, oil and lubricant, oil platforms, oil tankers... that's, that's about it.
Bubbles lies in his bunk and looks up quietly.
Nighttime in the Army is a lovely time.
Forrest lies in his bunk and looks up.
We'd lay there in our bunks, and I'd miss my momma. And I'd miss Joe.
A young private tosses a Playboy magazine onto Forrest.
Hey, Trump. Get a load of the tits on her!
Forrest pick up the magazine and turns the page, revealing Joe posing as the masked hero Zoro, standing next to a girl wearing a tiny school dress, and that's all. Joe is grabbing one of her exposed breasts. The pictorial is titled: "Villains and Girls of the South." Forrest looks up with shock. He cranes his head up for a closer look. Young Private leans over to reclaim his magazine but Trump snatches it away.
Turns out, Joe had gotten into some trouble over... some other photos of him in his college dorm. And he was thrown out of school again. I didn’t get momma’s lawyers to help him because it served him right, for having fun without me.
SONG "My baby does the hanky-panky..."
INT. NASHVILLE/NIGHT CLUB - NIGHT (1966)
Forrest, in his army uniform, steps into the foyer of the club.
But that wasn't a bad thing. Because a man who owns a theater in Memphis, Tennessee, saw those photo and offered Joe a job singing in a show. The first chance I got, I took my jet up to Memphis to see him perform in that show. EMCEE steps out onto the stage.
That was Andi, Andi Flame. Give him a big hand, guys. Good job, Andi. And now, for your listening and viewing pleasure, direct from Hollywood, California, our very own beatnik beauty, let's give a big round of applause to the luscious Joe Baez.
The emcee walks back off the stage and the curtain opens, revealing Joe as he sits on a stool on the stage. He holds a guitar up and begins to play. He is naked.
"Yes, and how many seas must the white dove said, before she sleeps in the sand."
His dream had come true. He was a singer.
"Yes, how many times must the cannonballs fly before they're forever banned."
You gotta lose the guitar, darling.
Hey, come on, baby. Shake it up. Shake it up now.
Hey, somebody ought to get him a harmonica.
The men laugh.
"The answer, my friend is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in...
MAN # 4
...skin, honey. This isn't Captain Kangaroo.
Yeah! Come on!
Man #5 reaches up and tries to stick some money in Joe's mouth.
Hey, honey, I got something here for you.
Joe kicks his hand. The man yells angrily as he sits back down, then tosses his drink on him.
Hey! Hey! Stupid jerk! I'm singing a song here. Polly, get out here!
Hey, show us some stuff, honey badger!
Shut up! Oh, shut up!
Forrest walks up to Man #5 and sticks a stun gun into his neck and he collapses down on the ground. Man #4 tries to grab Forrest, but Forrest also stuns him.
Forrest! What are you doing here? What are you doing?
Forrest climbs up onto the stage and picks Joe up, guitar and all, and tries carries him. Forrest falters. He drops Joe and begins walking out. Joe limps behind Forrest as he leaves.
What are you doing? Forrest, wait up!
Joe struggles to catch up with Forrest. He hits him on the back with the guitar. Forrest steps back in surprise. Joe shoves the guitar at Forrest. Joe walks off, naked, as Forrest holds the guitar for a moment before throwing it on the ground and following after Joe.
EXT. MEMPHIS BRIDGE - NIGHT
Forrest follows Joe over a bridge outside the nightclub.
You can't keep doing this, Forrest. You can't keep following me around.
They was tryin' to grab you.
A lot of people try to grab me. Just — you can't keep doing this all the time!
I can't help it. I want to be the only one who hurts you.
Forrest, you don't know what hurt is.
Joe turns and looks over the bridge.
You remember that time we prayed, Forrest? I prayed for God to give me a gun so I could shoot everyone dead and gone?
Yes, I do.
You think I could shoot you with a gun?
What do you mean, Joe? You cannot even afford a gun. If you had one, well, army taught me everything there is about guns, I would use my skills to take it off you. You are weaker than me now Joe. Look at these hands!
Forrest shows him a small callus on his right palm.
Then I don’t pray for a gun anymore. God, make me a bird. Think I can fly off this bridge?
No, idiot. You’re not a bird yet. You gotta wait for God to gets through his naughty and nice list.
Joe turns and looks at the light of an approaching vehicle. He steps into the street.
I gotta get outta here.
Joe runs and flags down the approaching vehicle.
But wait. Joe!
Forrest, you stay away from me, okay? You just stay away from me, please.
A pickup truck pulls over as Joe looks at the driver.
Can I have a ride?
Where you going?
I don't care.
Get in the truck, on the seat next to me.
So bye-bye, Joe. They sendin' me to Vietnam. It's this whole other country.
Joe walks toward Forrest. He looks at the driver.
Just hang on a minute.
Joe walks up to Forrest.
Fuck, you’re an idiot.
Joe turns to leave but hesitates.
Listen, if you're ever in trouble, don't be brave, you just run, okay? Run like you made me run. Just run away. In fact, before you go, tell them you are sick, that have weak legs or something like that.
Joe turns to leave but hesitates.
Actually, now that I think about it, I hope you die horribly.
Okay. Joe, I'll write you all the time.
Joe takes a last look at Forrest, before flipping him the bird and climbing into the truck. Forrest watches Joe in the pickup as it drives away.
And just like that.
EXT. CITY DOCTOR’s OFFICE - DAY
Forrest, dressed in his uniform, sits in a chair in the doctor’s office and looks out at a river.
...he was gone.
Mrs. Trump and sits next to Forrest. Forrest leans down, placing his head on his mother's shoulder. She removes his head.
MRS. TRUMP (addressing the doctor)
...he was only meant to go to training to teach him discipline.
Right. Read this.
She looks at a printed list handed to her by the doctor. She points at one of the items on the list.
How much does the bone spur diagnosis cost?
