So me and my friend disagrees on this. i say he DID become one and he thinks otherwise. in the middle of the movie leutinent dan promisses to be an astronaut if forrest captains a shrimpin boat. and he also promised to be his first mate. well the movie is like pretty much irony right? at the end LT. Dan walks up. Forrest is like "LT Dan you got legs" and LT Dan says "Yeah titanium alloy, its the stuff they used on the space shuttle."
.................... So that pretty much means he WAS an astronaut. if he WASN'T an astronaut he would of said it like this "Yeah its the stuff they use on space shuttles"


....... So who is right?

Wow.... I was debating this not too long ago.

I agree with you, given that he said "the" space shuttle.
#5
agreed. and yes, he did become an astronaut.

So I just woke up sitting in my desk chair, with my bong on the desk in a bunch of little pieces and my hand super glued to my penis. Speculations as to what the hell just happened and how to unglue my hand from my member would be appreciated.

I think you've put WAY too much thought into this...
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?

You're right. Captain Dan stole the titanium alloy from the space shuttle. He beat up the astonauts with his origional legs, while wearing a diaper.

Personally, I think that wording could be taken either way

Someone help me, I've been snunned!

My guess is that aliens actually abducted Lt. Dan that night on the shrimp boat, and replaced him with a more cheerful copy. Better?

Well, he didn't make the Apollo 13 cut, he was going to though. They put him in the control room instead.


Here he is with the original crew

He didn't get to go up till Appollo 16 because he was suspected to have an illness

Woahhh, I was definitely just watching this on TV, a couple hours ago...

He's definitely an astronaut. How could he afford the legs?
Peace.

from IMSDB:

JENNY
Hi. Your tie.

Lt. Dan is walking across the lawn. He uses a cane. A WOMAN
is walking next to him.

FORREST
Lieutenant Dan? Lieutenant Dan!

LT. DAN
Hello, Forrest.

Jenny walks over to Forrest and Lt. Dan.

FORREST
You got new legs. New legs!

LT. DAN
Yeah, I got new legs.

Lt. Dan lifts his pant leg to display his metal leg.

LT. DAN
Custom-made titanium alloy. It's
what they use on the space shuttle.


FORREST
Magic legs.

LT. DAN
This is my fiancee, Susan.

FORREST
Lieutenant Dan!

Nnnnnno, not necessarily. "The space shuttle" could mean a space shuttle that went up recently. It CAN mean that he was an astronaut and he's referring to the space shuttle he went up on, but it can ALSO just mean the most recent space shuttle that went up. One that's all over the news.

Though I'm going to say he did become an astronaut, because I love that movie and that's a happy ending. Also considering the type of movie, "the space shuttle" would probably refer to a shuttle that he did take.

Also, being from the South, that'ss just a common term.

It's like saying "Like they use to make the space shuttles", or something similar.

Like, for example, you're talking about a car part, say a supercharger, and someone says, "Yep, it's the same kind they use on the Ford GT."

It's doesn't neccesarily mean it's THE supercharger from a Ford GT, it's just like it.

Kinda hard to explain, but I'm betting on it's meant to be a Southern dialect thing.

It would be pretty awesome if Lt. Dan made it to space, though.

Wasnt he in Apollo 13?


I just saw that movie again today, it was on. I'm guessing thats where this questions stems from.
