"Hi my name is George, 'They ran us outta Weed' so now we here at the river' (Steinbeck 7).
"Blubberin' like a baby! Jesus Christ! A big guy like you," (Steinbeck 9).
The Way We Move
"... 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," (Steinbeck 15).
George and Lennie were kicked out of Weed and now they are gonna work at another ranch. They are going to sleep at the river for the night then head to their job.
Fighting with Authority
"Say-- what you sellin?" (Steinbeck 22).
"Huh?" (Steinbeck 22).
George has a trait of being mean especially to Lennie. George insults Lennie a lot like when he calls him a baby, big, and bastard.
The Never Ending Journey
"With us it ain't like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us.... But not us," (Steinbeck 14).
One of George strenghts is coming up with ideas for Lennie to do when he is in trouble. This is important because it helps them from getting caught. This is his strength because he make it easy for Lennie to remember.
The Secret Carer
"We kinda look after each other... It's a lot nicer to go around with a guy you know," (Steinbeck 34-35).
A conflict George faces is when he meets the boss, and the boss starts to question him since he is talking for Lennie. This leads to him and the boss to argue.
In this scene it show George annd Lennie still have hope that the will be something, and that they don't wanna be like they other ranch workers. This shows they still have hope no matter how much they have gone through.
This scene shows how George really is a good person. Behind all the mean words he says it is a caring person that would do anything for Lennie.
