Storyboard Text

  • Dreams Chapters 1&2
  • "We're gonna get the jack together and we're gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an'a cow and some pigs."
  • "An' have rabbits."
  • Dreams Chapter 5
  • "The poor bastard's nuts, don't shoot him.
  • " I'm gonna shoot that big bastard myself."
  • Dreams Chapter 6

  • Situation: The boys (George and Lennie ) are tired of working from job to job and want their own place and freedom. Analysis: George doesn't want to keep going to different jobs when Lennie gets in trouble. He tells Lennie, "You get in trouble," (Steinbeck 12) Theme: They want their own land so that life will be easier for them and they dont have to travel looking for work.
  • Situation: Lennie killed Curley 's wife. Steinbeck wrote," And then she was still, for Lennie had broke her neck," (Steinbeck 100). Curley shouted," I'm gonna shoot that big bastard myself," (Steinbeck 107). Analysis: George knows the dream is over because Lennie keeps getting in trouble. Him getting in trouble makes it hard for them to do anything. Theme: The only way to better yourself is to do what's needed to be done. Getting in trouble doesn't help.
  • Situation: George killed Lennie because of what he did. George knew the other punishments would've hurt him. Analysis: George killed Lennie to stop him from escalating further and tried to rid him of the punishments (Jail time and Curley) Theme: Sometimes the hard choice and the right one are the same.
