    I think I know what he said. Here's what you do hear.

    FORREST
    Well...

    FORREST (V.O.)
    There was only one thing I could say
    about the war in Vietnam.

    FORREST
    ...there was only one thing I could
    say about the war in Vietnam.

    Forrest looks at the crowd as he speaks. A policeman looks
    around as he sneaks over to the audio circuit board.

    FORREST
    In Vietnam war...

    The policeman pulls the patch cords out of the audio board.

    Forrest's amplified voice becomes inaudible. Forrest continues
    to speak into the microphone, even though no one can hear
    what he is saying. Hilary looks over and notices the
    policeman. Hilary rushes over toward the audio board, pushes
    the policeman away and grabs his night stick. Another
    protester grabs the policeman and pulls him away.

    POLICEMAN
    Hey, what the hell are you doing?

    HILARY
    I'll beat your head in, you goddamned
    oinker!

    Isabel, Hilary and another protester try to plug the tangled
    mess of wires back into the audio board.

    ISABEL
    Christ, what'd they do with this?

    Forrest continues to speak into the microphone. The crowd
    grows restless.

    CROWD
    We can't hear you! We can't hear
    anything!

    HILARY
    This one! This one! Give me that!

    Hilary plugs in the right patch cord.

    HILARY
    That's it.

    FORREST
    ...and that's all I have to say about
    that.


    He repeats that last line again here.

    FORREST (V.O.)
    Bubba was my best good friend. And
    even I know that ain't something you
    can find just around the corner.
    Bubba was gonna be a shrimpin' boat
    captain, but instead he died right
    there by that river in Vietnam.

    The helicopter fly overhead.

    BUS STATION - DAY

    Forrest continues with his life story. A MAN is sitting next
    to Forrest on the bus bench.

    FORREST
    That's all I have to say about that.
