O.K. Someday-we're gonna get the jack together and we're gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an' a cow and some pigs and-
An' live off the fatta the lan!
So you wasn't gonna say a word. Damn near lost us the job.
I forgot, George.
Let the big guy talk.
We just come in.
George finds out that Lennie likes keeping mice in his pocket. While they eat George gets mad at Lennie. Then they talk about dreams.
Lennie gets in trouble again and George gets mad at him. This section shows us that the main conflict of the book is how Lennie can never stay out of trouble.
In the rising action, George and Lennie meet all of their new crewmates some friendly and some mean. One of the workers named Candy has a lot of money and offers it towards Lennie and George's dream.
For the rabbits.
Curley's wife comes into the barn and starts talking to Lennie. Curley's wife lets Lennie start to touch her hair and when he does he doesn't let go. She starts panicking and tells him to stop so Lennie breaks her neck on accident.
You let go!
Lennie remembers George telling him that if he ever gets in trouble he is to hide behind the bush at the clearing.
George gonna give me hell.
George knows that he has to kill Lennie before Curley comes to kill Lennie for revenge. He talks to Lennie for a while then kills him right before the men arrive. The men comfort him and tell him it had to be done.
