In the initial script, Will wrote several more references in the background alone, as he walked to his location, I.e. Forrest Gump sitting on the bench in the background, a random newspaper boy riding by on his bike yelling he wants his 2 dollars, etc. They ran out of both time and money to complete that idea successfully.
