Lennie loves to pet soft things like mice and dogs. This time it was neither, it was a women's dress. This is why they had to run away from Weed because they were getting chased by they girl and men on horses with shotguns. So they had to jump in do a irrigation ditch.
"Lennie, let go now!" he stated
"AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!" she screamed.
"I just wanted to touch it." Lennie stated sadly.
In this scene George and Lennie are talking about living on their own farm. This is so they don't have to keep moving around and trying to find jobs. This might happen since Candy is trying to get in on it. Also, Candy is helping George and Lennie financially so they can get the farm they want. Lennie wants to tend the rabbits that they aredifferent colors
"Sure we will," George said sleepily.
Let's have different color rabbits, George." Lennie stated.
Here Curley came in thinking Slim was sleeping with his wife, but he wasn't. Then Lennie was smiling thinking about the farm they might get. Curley didn't know that. So he thought Lennie was laughing at him so he decided to fight him. He was punching Lennie but then Lennie squeezed his had so hard it basically broke.
Lennie looked blankly at him. "Huh?"
"What the hell you laughn' at?" Come up on you feet. No big son-of-a-bitch is gonna laugh at me. I'll show ya yella."
George is having a lot of trust in Slim because nobody else on the the farm knows about what happened back in Weed. Also, The girl tells the law that she has been raped but Lennie has only pulled on her dress. So then that is why they ended up in the irrigation ditch. So they had to get a job so they can survive.
“Well, he seen this girl in a red dress. Dumb bastard like he is, he wants to touch ever’thing he likes. Just wants to feel it...."
“What’d he do in Weed?” Slim asked calmly.
The reason that Candy doesn't want to kill the dog is because he had it since it was a pup. I wouldn't want to get my dog shot just cause it was old. Also, the dog doesn't do anything on the farm that is productive.
Candy said, "Maybe tomorra. Le's wait till tomorra."
"The hell I ain't. Got a Luger. It won't hurt him none at all." Said carlson.
This is surprising because Lennie usually forgets things but this time. He actually remembered where to go if they were to get in trouble. They did not get in trouble so hiding there did not come in the affect.
"Hide till I come for you. Don't let anybody see you. Hide in the brush by the river. Say that over." George said.
