George, watching all of this go down, grabs Carlson's shotgun and sets out to the meeting place. When he arrives he finds Lennie. Lennie is calm and collected. He asks George to describe to him what their farm will look like when they have the money to buy it, which will never actually happens. This shows the impossibility of the american dream.
