"Lennie, if you get in trouble like yous always done before, come hide in the brush, ok?"
"Ok, but George, I ain't did anything."
"Hey we're the new guys, wheres the boss?"
"I still can't talk...."
"Ah yea, he's been waiting for y'all all mornin."
"But trust me, we are good workers, and Lennie here is as strong as a bull."
When George and Lennie get kicked out of Weed, they take a bus to head to the next ranch but the bus driver drops them off 4 miles out. He thinks that they are up to no good. They then have to walk the rest and hope they are not late for the job.
"The bus dropped us off 4 miles off."
"Where were yous this morning?"
"HAHA, strong as a bull."
Getting closer to the job, they settle down in the brush for the night. George tells Lennie to get some wood and they go over the rules to keep Lennie out of trouble. George wants to make sure Lennie doesn't get them kicked out of another town because they need the money.
"You ain't lyin, he is strong."
They finally arrive at the ranch and see an old man named Candy greeting them. He explains that they boss is going to be upset because they were supposed to be there that morning. He takes him inside to meet the boss.
"You can have one of my pups."
"But I've had em since he was a pup."
"He needs to go, he smells up the whole bunk room."
When George and Lennie get inside, they put there bags down realizing a can of bug keep away is on the beds. They get suspicious and greet the boss who wants to make sure George isn't here to take Lennie's pay. Lies are made up so they can keep this job for awhile.
George and Lennie meet the rest of the guys at the bunkhouse and set out for their first day of work. Someone named Slim is surprised at how strong Lennie is. George stands by and laughs, knowing this job should be a good learning experience.
Candy, the oldest guy in the bunkhouse, has a dog that is also old and no one likes him. Carlson tries convincing Candy to let him put him out of its misery. Candy looks at Slim for approval and then Carlson takes him outside and shoots him with his Luger.
