  • ☺☺☺
  • George and Lennie are sitting by the fire, resting after a supposed four mile walk in Soledad. They are seated on a large sycamore, whose limbs have become smooth because of the constant weight. A green pool of water is nearby. George is angry, yelling about how his life would be easier without Lennie. Lennie sits quietly and listens to the hurtful words. Lennie and George are good friends, they've been together for a while, and keep each other company. They are important to one another, and would be completely alone had it not been for the other.
  • Chapter 4
  • George and Lennie are standing in the bunkhouse, a long room that has unpainted floors and whitewashed walls. The two men are hovering over their bunks, which are made up of burlap ticking. Their personal belongings have been put away in the small apple boxes nailed onto their bunks. George is scolding Lennie for speaking, and almost making them lose the job. This connects to the night before when George said his life would be easier without Lennie, but he doesn't want Lennie to leave him.
  • Chapter 5
  • George and Slim are sitting in the bunkhouse. It is evening, and somewhat bright outside. The others are playing horseshoes outside. However, the only light in the dark bunkhouse is coming from an electric tin-shaded lamp sitting on the card table. Slim brings up the fact that Lennie and George travel together, and the two go into a conversation about how men become mean and gruff when traveling alone and keeping away from relationships. George and Slim are glad they have relationships, and aren't lonely or mean.
  • Chapter 6
  • Crooks, the stable buck, is sitting in his bunk, which is located in the harness room of the barn. He is sitting on a long box filled with straw, it is covered with blankets. The room is neat, though there are quite a few things scattered along the ground. Lennie is sitting with him, on a little barrel. Crooks is explaining that he is unwelcome in the bunkhouse, and that he sees things and isn't sure what's real anymore. He tells of his lack of company, because of his skin color. His loneliness is literally driving him crazy.
  • Lennie is in the barn, seated in the hay beside a packing case under the manager that hasn't been filled. Curley’s Wife is sitting beside him, trying to start a conversation. She is talking to herself, really. She explains that she gets lonely because she isn't allowed to talk to the other men, and admits that she does not like Curley. Lennie hardly listens, and continuously goes back to talking about the rabbits. Still, Curley’s Wife does not stop talking, desperate for attention and company. The dead pup lays nearby.
  • Slim is inviting George to get a drink, understanding what George must be feeling. George had just shot Lennie, who now lay motionless in the sand. Curley and Carlson are present, and glad to see Lennie can no longer cause trouble. However, they do not know that George spent his last few minutes with Lennie reminiscing in their dream, so that Lennie could die happy and guilt free. They are all near the green pool of the Salinas River, at the brush where George and Lennie spent the night before arriving to the ranch. Carlson’s Luger is up the bank, near an old pile of ashes.
