Storyboard Text

  • From outside came the clang of horseshoes on the playing peg and the shouts of men, playing, encouraging, jeering. But in the barn it was quiet and humming and lazy and warm.
  • Woo-Hoo! Clang!
  •  Lennie sat in the hay and looked at a little dead puppy that lay in front of him. Lennie looked at it for a long time, and then he put out his huge hand and stroked it, stroked it clear from one end to the other.
  • Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice. I didn’t bounce you hard. Now maybe George ain’t gonna let me tend no rabbits, if he fin’s out you got killed.
  • George says I ain’t to have nothing to do with you— talk to you or nothing
  • Curley’s wife came around the end of the last stall. She came very quietly, so that Lennie didn’t see her. Her face was made-up and the little sausage curls were all in place. She was quite near to him before Lennie looked up and saw her.
  • I get lonely. You can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad. How’d you like not to talk to anybody?
  • I like to pet nice things with my fingers, sof’ things.
  • Oh! That’s nice.
  • She took Lennie’s hand and put it on her head. Lennie’s big fingers fell to stroking her hair
  • Here—feel right here. Feel right aroun’ there an’ see how soft it is. Don’t you muss it up,
  • Lennie was in a panic. His face was contorted. She screamed then, and Lennie’s other hand closed over her mouth and nose.
  • Oh! Please don’t do that. George’ll be mad. “I don’t want you to yell. You gonna get me in trouble jus’ like George says you will. Now don’t you do that.”
  • Look out, now, you’ll muss it. You stop it now, you’ll mess it all up.
  • She jerked her head sideways, and Lennie’s fingers closed on her hair and hung on. 
  • And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck. He looked down at her, and carefully he removed his hand from over her mouth, and she lay still.
  • I done a real bad thing . I shouldn’t of did that. George’ll be mad. An’ . . . . he said . . . . an’ hide in the brush till he come. He’s gonna be mad.
