I just got this reference…

I’m a moron, haha. I’ve seen Forrest Gump easily, EASILY 200 times. I fuckin’ LOOOOVE that movie. I was cleaning my room the other day, listening to Pandora. John Lennon’s “Imagine” came on, and I found myself recalling the lines, but not because I knew the song all that well. It reminded me of,,, oh snap! Forrest Gump?! I thought for a second to place the dialogue in the movie (seriously, that’s how many times I’ve seen it. I can quote practically the entire script). After just a couple minutes, BOOM! GOT IT:

Listen to the dialogue, as you read the lyrics to Lennon’s “Imagine”:

Imagine there is no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You, you may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one

…clever one, Eli Roth…. clevah girl…..
