ARTHUR SCHMIDT:
Well the taxi driver said it when he said "wow." "Forrest" would have known what to say. He probably just would've said: "Well, okay." And let it go at that. But I have a few more little things to say. When you're on the receiving end of the work of so many gifted collaborators you get to come up here and get something like this. And I have to thank them all for making this and "Gump" happen. Especially Bob Zemeckis, who stretches himself and the medium of film every time he goes out and makes a film. And in so doing he stretches all of us who have the challenge and the fun and the excitement and the pleasure of working with his amazing talent. Thank you, Bob. And thank you all very much.
