Lt. Dan: "Now you liston to me. We all have a destiny. Nothing just happens. It's all part of a plan! I should have died out there with my men, but now I'm nothing but a bleepdamn cripple, a legless freak! Look. Look! Look at me! You see that? Do you know what it's like not to be able to use your legs?"
Forrest: "Y-Y-Yes, sir, I do."
Lt. Dan: "Did you hear what I said? You cheated me! I had a destiny. I was supposed to die in the field with honor! That was my destiny, and you cheated me ou of it! You understand what I'm saying, Gump? This wasn't supposed to happen. Not to me. I had a destiny. I was Lieutenant Dan Taylor."
Forrest: "Y-You still Lieutenant Dan."
