"'Course you did. Well, look. Lennie- if you jus' happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an' hide in the brush."
"Yeah. I remember. Oh, sure I remember! I go there an' hide in the brush."
"What kind of a guy is the boss?
"I... I ain't gonna... say a word."
"The boss was expectin' you last night,"
¨what stake you got in this guy? You takin' his pay away from him?"
"No, 'course I ain't. Why ya think I'm sellin' him out?
"Strong as a bull,"
That dog of Candy's is so God damn old he can't hardly walk. Stinks like hell, too. Ever' time he comes into the bunk house I can smell him for two, three days. Why'n't you get Candy to shoot his old dog and give him one of the pups to raise up?
While Lennie and George get kicked out of weed for Lennie pulling on a girls dress, they make there way to a few miles south of the Salinas River for new work. The bus doesn't drop them off close to the ranch so they had to walk. The walk was about 10 miles and they had to stay the night in the forest. George told Lennie if he ever got in trouble run and dont stop and come hid in the brush.
When the get to the ranch a day late they meet people like Candy, Slim and Curley. The boss wasn't happy that they showed up late. They go into the bunker and talk to Swamper and he shows them around. They find out about Curley and his wife and how he is the bosses son. George doesn't seem to trust and like Curley.
They hear that the boss is a nice fella but can get to be mad sometimes. He questions why Lennie doesn't talk and looks suspicious. He asked if he was taking his pay from him. After that he is assigned to slims team.
"I didn't want no trouble,"
After a hard day at work, Lennie has proven he is a good worker and a strong person. They go back to the bunk house at hear that Slim has pups. Lennie wants one, and tells gorge to ask him for one. While they are talking about dogs they tell Candy that his dog smells.
Candy doesnt want ayone to touch his dog. Then he is convinced its time to get rid of the dog. Carlson take the dog out and shots it. Candy is devastated.
After that Curley came in and Lennie was thinking about the farm. Curley wasnt in a good mood and thought Lennie was laughing a him and disrespecting him. They ended up fighting but Lennie broke his arm.
