If you ever get into any trouble come back here and hide in the brush.
I won't say nothing George.
Don't cause any trouble, and don't say a word when we see the boss!
Lennie wanted to touch a woman's dress, and him being the big man he is she didn't think he just wanted to touch his dress."She yells and we got to sneak out in the dark, and get out of the country."(pg11)
It's so light!
It's to heavy I can't lift that.
After Lennie and George fled the town of Weed, they set off to find work at a ranch. Before they got to the ranch they settled down next to a river for the night. They would eat beans here, and George would tell Lennie stories about the dream they both shared. It was to own their own ranch, with different colored bunnies. This is also an example of the American Dream
Have you seen Curley?
Since Lennie suffers from an intellectual disability George does not want the boss to know that so he told Lennie not to say a word. When Geroge is speaking to the boss, Lennie doesn't say anything, and He also says that Lennie is his cousin when we know that that is not true.
You laughing at me fool!!!
I don't want to cause any trouble!
The first day of work on the ranch Lennie is assigned to put hay into a cattle car. He carries the bays with ease when everyone else is struggling. People take this by surprise and treat him with a little more respect. George also sees Lennie working and congratulates him on how good he did.
Curley's wife is a troublemaker and is always talking to the ranch hands when Curley isn't around. "Every time the guys are around she always shows up. She is always looking for Curley or thought she left something around."(pg51)
When Slim goes out to put tar on the Cattles injured foot Curley comes into the bunkhouse wondering where his wife is. He looks at Lennie, and he is laughing. Curley thinks he is laughing at him, but Lennie is really laughing because he thinks Curley is joking around with him. Curley wants to fight Lennie, but Lennie means no harm and breaks Curley's hand. Then George convinces Curley to say he broke it in a machine so they don't get canned.
