Storyboard Description

This is one of the most memorable scenes, for me, in the book. I loved this scene of George throwing the mouse across the field. It really set the mood for the book and the relationship between George and Lennie.

Storyboard Text

  • Of Mice and Men
  • "Oh, sure, George. I remember that now." " George ... I ain't got mine. I musta lost it."
  • "I ain't got nothin', George. Honest."
  • "I...I thought I put it in my side pocket."
  • "It's on'y a mouse , a George."
  • "You never had none, you crazy bastard. I got both of 'em here. Think I'd let you carry your own work card?"
  • "...You remember about us goin' into Murray and Ready's and they give us work cards and bus tickets?"
  • "Ain't a thing a my pocket"
  • "What'd you take outta that pocket?"
  • "I know there ain't. You got it in your hand. What you got in your hand-hidin' it?"
  • "A mouse? A live mouse?"
  • "Come on, give it here."
  • "Uh-uh. Jus' a dead mouse, George. I didn' kill it. Honest! I found it. I found it dead."
  • "Aw, leave me have it, George."
  • "Give it here!"
  • "Give it here!"
  • Lennie's closed hand slowly obeyed. George took the mouse and threw it across the pool to the other side, among the brush.
  • "Well, you ain't petting no mice while you walk with me. You remember where we're goin' now?"
  • "I could pet it with my thumb while we walked along."
  • "What you want of a dead mouse, anyways?"
  • "Jesus Christ," "Well-look, we're gonna work on a ranch like the one we come from up north."
  • "That ranch we're goin' to is right down there about a quarter mile. We're gonna go in an' see the boss..."
  • "Sure, George. Sure I got it."
  • "Oh, sure. I remember. In Weed."
  • "Up north?"
  • "I forgot again."
  • "In Weed."
  • " ' I ain't gonna say nothin' ... I ain't gonna say nothin' ... I ain't gonna say nothin'."
  • "I...I," "I...ain't gonna say nothin'. Jus' stan' there."
  • "O.K. Now when we go in to see the boss, what you gonna do?"
  • "O.K.," "An' you ain't gonna do no bad things like you done in Weed, neither."
  • "Oh, so ya forgot that too, did ya? Well I ain't gonna remind ya, fear ya do it again."
  • "Good boy. That's swell. You say that over two, three times so you won't forget it."
  • "Like I done in Weed?"
