  •  Lennie's future is wrapped up in rabbits. On the one hand, it's nice to have a concrete goal. On the other hand, this is a very unrealistic dream.
  • Lennies Future Is Wraped Up In Rabbits
  • "I remember about the rabbits, George."pp.4-5
  • "The hell with the rabbits. That's all you can ever remember is them rabbits."pp.4-5
  • The fact that George has already set up a place for Lennie to come in case he gets into trouble like he "always done before" foreshadows that trouble is coming and that Lennie will need a place to hide where George can find him and help him out of the trouble he has gotten himself into.
  • George and Lennie's Dream For Their Future
  • "'Well,' said George, 'we'll have a big vegetable patch and a rabbit hutch and chickens. And when it rains in the winter, we'll just say the hell with goin' to work, and we'll build up a fire in the stove and set around it an' listen to the rain comin' down on the roof-Nuts!'"pp.14-15

  • You're Not the First Ones To have That Dream
  • "I seen hunderds of men come by on the road an' on the ranches, with their bindles on their back an' that same damn thing in their heads. Hunderds of them.
