John Steinbeck Of Mice and Men
Chapter 1 (First scene of the book) Two grown men, in denim trousers and work stained clothes, on their way to start fresh as new ranch hands.
These two men, Lennie small and skinny, has promised to take care of George, the larger man that was said to have been kicked in the head by a horse. In this scene it shows how much Lennie has to do to keep George safe.
"Lennie, for God' sake don't drink so much"
After a long rest and food Lennie finds a dead mouse and tries to keep it and pet it while he gets yelled at by George and is told that he keeps killing them all. This is foreshadowing for later in the book when Lennie kills his dog and Curleys wife
"Aint't a thing in my pocket"... "I ain't got nothin George, honest"
"What'd you take outa that pocket"... "What you got in your hand-hidin it?"
After taking the mouse from Lennie's hand and yelling at him harshly, George then makes a promise to Lennie by tellin ghim he will get him a puppy, that Lennie will be able to "pet harder"
"When we get a ranch of our own i'll get you a puupy, one that you'll get to pet harder"
This scene ends with Lennie and George heading to the ranch as George complains that was bus driver was too lazy to just drop them off at the ranch. This scene showed a lot about both Lennie and Georges character showin gthat George was obviously annoyed he had to take care of Lennie but no other choice when Lennie sees this frustration and suggests he'll leave even though he doesn't mean it
"We could have well just rode clear to the ranch if that bus driver knew what he was talking about"
