Storyboard Text

  • Chapter 1 page 14
  • We'll have a vegetable patch and a rabbit hutch and chickens.
  • Chapter 3 page 61
  • I ought to have shot that dog myself, George.
  • *BANG*
  • Chapter 5 page 91
  • I don't want you to yell. You gonna get me in trouble jus' like George said. 
  • In this scene George retells their dream of owning their own farm to Lennie while eating beans. Their dream is a symbol of the American dream. However, not having any ketchup for their beans foreshadows they will not have what it takes to achieve their dreams. This scene shows that every one has a dream because George and Lennie represent the average person.
  • Chapter 6 pages 105 and 106
  • An' you get to tend the rabbits. 
  • In this scene Carlson shoots Candy's dog because he thinks the dog is useless. Candy's dog's death foreshadows Lennie's death because Candy and his dog are foils of Lennie and George. The scene shows that friends should look after one another.
  • In this scene Lennie kills Curley's wife on accident. She had told Lennie to touch her hair, but she got scared when he wouldn't let go. She started to yell and Lennie tried to keep her quiet, so he wouldn't be in trouble. However he ended up snapping her neck. This shows that our actions are our dreams undoing.
  • In this scene George shoots Lennie while explaining their dream again. By killing Lennie, this symbolically shows the death of their dream. This shows "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." Most of our plans are never achieved, and end up being thoughts and wishes that never happen.
