Storyboard Text

  • Ch. 1-2
  • Tell you what?
  • Tell me like you done before.
  • About the rabbits
  • Ch. 3-4
  • Jesus Christ! I bet we could swing her!
  • Please don't do none of that, George gonna say I did a bad thing. He ain't gonna let me tend no rabbits.
  • Ch. 5
  • In Chapter 1, George and Lennie sit by the fire cooking beans and talking about their dream of owning a ranch. They're average men who yearn for their American Dream of owning land and living off the land, and thus they symbolize the common man of this time who was down on his luck and dreamed of a better life. This was true for many people during the time period in which the story takes place, who had their own dreams of what they wanted to do.
  • Ch. 6
  • Let's do it now. Let's get that place now.
  • Sure, right now. I gotta. We gotta.
  • In Chapter 4, Candy joins George and Lennie's plan to buy land, and they decide to pool their money to do so. Candy says that since he lost his hand, he'll be canned soon, having nowhere to go. With this arrangement, Candy has a place to go, and George and Lennie finally achieve their dream. Thus it is shown that we can achieve our dreams by working together, as George and Lennie are able to thanks to Candy.
  • In Chapter 5, as foreshadowed by Lennie getting him and George chased out of Weed, Lennie accidentally kills Curley's wife. Prior in the story, George and Lennie were working with Candy to achieve their dream and it was finally within reach, but now it's gone awry due to Lennie's actions. This is a major part of the story's central message that no matter how well planned, our plans often go wrong.
  • In Chapter 6, Lennie goes to the brush like George said to, and George has him look across the river, telling him about their dream before shooting him. Lennie getting shot is symbolic of their dream dying, and Slim taking George for a drink after shows that George is going to be that type of man that gives up on his dream and spends his time drinking & visiting brothels.  This indicates the theme that our dreams often die unfulfilled, and we're left drinking & forgetting about them.
