Forrest Gump, during his second visit to Washington, D.C., is unwittingly swept into a line to participate in an anti-war rally on the National Mall. He is invited to speak to a tremendous crowd of people opposed to intervention in Vietnam, and begins to do so, until another soldier sabotages the electronics producing sound. Much of his speech remains inaudible to all but the few people in his immediate vicinity, until sound is restored just as he concludes his speech.

Then, Jenny Curran, now a hippy, runs into the water to meet Forrest again. He runs to meet her as well, to thunderous cheers and applause.
