Mrs Watson describes his new job:
Forrest: So you're a meat cutter?
Mrs Watson: Well, not exactly. I'm a meat apprentice. After a while I'll graduate to meat journeyman, and eventually I'll be a meat cutter.
Forrest: So what transferable skills are you gonna have from this, say...20 years down the line?
Mrs Watson: Oh, tons! It's a skilled trade. And I mean, I'll probably be a full-fledged meat cutter by then. Like...you could be a butcher...or...own a restaurant...well...be a chef at a restaurant...
