Lennie finds Crooks room and wants to talk to him. At first, Crooks is upset with him bothering him, because he is used to being alone, but then realizes he's smarter than Lennie, gains the power, and abuses it by scaring him. Lennie gains his power back by showing his physical strength. Crooks then tells Lennie about his life, and why he's lonely. At the same time, Lennie is talking about the dream.
Of Mice and Men Theme: Loneliness
Candy then finds Lennie in Crooks room. He comes in to talk, and they discuss further about the dream. Crooks doesn't believe that the dream will actually come true because men travel alone, and waste their money at cat houses. He doesn't understand the relationship that Lennie and George have, and they are not like the other guys; lonely all the time.
Curley's wife comes into the barn looking for Curley. We learn that she is actually lonely, and this is why she is always "bothering" all the guys. She realizes that she could have a much better life, but instead, she is stuck at the ranch. The guys all want her to leave, but she has the power because she's the bosses sons wife. Everyone in the 1930's is lonely: unless you have a friend like George and Lennie.
