Forrest Gump, Shrimps "That's about it"

The story of Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks), a simple innocent man's journey through life from the '50s to the '90s.  Scene: his friends Bubba, who convinces him to enter the shrimping business with him when the Vietnam War is over. 

"Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That's about it."
