  • CANDY
  • I heard curly keeps a glove full of Vaseline for his wife...
  • It has come evident that Candy is very gossipy. He talks a lot about stories and facts he's heard or seen, and he talks quickly. He spends a while trying to talk his way out of a situation in chapter 2 with George thinking there were insects in his bed. (19)
  • George, when am I gonna get to tend the rabbits?
  • Live off the fat of the land, huh?
  • What Candy thinks is very unclear because he is always saying what he is thinking. Though, I have an insight. In chapter 3 Candy wants to join in on George and Lennie's American dream to one day own a large piece of land and settle. Candy says how he'll be thrown out by the boss if he doesn't leave sooner or later. I believe Candy thinks he won't survive, but he thinks he's so lonely. Especially after the death of his dog. (59-60)
  • HAHAHA! GET EM SMITTY!!!
  • Candy has a very interesting effect on multiple people. He is the first person George and Lennie meet at the farm and is immediately seen as a friend and a suspect as he lies to George about the beds. (18-19) Because of his gossipy nature, Candy seems to be the character we get the most information from.
  • Candy doesn't do much. This is not stated in the book, but we can infer that he can't do much. He is a swamper, which means he is pretty much the custodian of the farm. Because with his missing hand and old age, he might not be sticking around for longer.
  • Candy is very well described at the beginning of the book. He is old, frail, slim, tall, and stoop-shouldered. His most defining feature is his handless arm. (18)
