“Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company [Apple computer]. So then I got a call from him, saying we don’t have to worry about money no more. And I said, that’s good! One less thing.” – Forrest Gump– Forrest Gump
Ok, this is probably one of the wittiest lines in the entire movie. Forrest Gump was produced and made in 1994 and even in the early ‘90s it was clear Apple computers were taking over the world. So much so, Forrest himself invested in the company and never had to work again!
Talk about an amazing path of dumb luck and how that reference can still strike true today 20+ years later. Lt. Dan was apparently a smart investor and basically sets Forrest up for life financially. Forrest thinks he invested his money in a fruit company…. little does he know that was probably the best fruit company investment a person could make.
