  • George and Lennie started their journey with a bit of a road bump as the bus they were riding dropped them off more than 4 miles away from their destination. ("...'Jes' a little stretch down the highway' he says. 'jes' a little stretch.' God damn near four miles, that what it was!...")
  • Jokes and Miscommunication
  • I CAN"T believe you! you can't keep a single job you get! and loose every job for me!
  • Lennie was getting bored on the way to the ranch so he picked up a dead mouse to pet on the way, George was less than happy to hear of this.... ("...George looked sharply at him. "what'd you take outta that pocket?..." "...Lennie held his hand away from George's direction. 'It's on'y a mouse, George...")
  • Sacrifices for Friends
  • I can leave if you want me to...
  • While George was taking Lennie's mouse away, Lennie remembers a women who gave him mice all the time, George gives a half caring reminder that that women was his deceased aunt.  ("...'I remember a ladyused to give 'em to me- ever' one she got. But that lady ain't here.' George scoffed. 'Lady, huh? Don't even remember who that lady was. That was your own Aunt Clara...")

  • Can you tell me the rabbits George?
  • Lennie was getting on George's nerves and when he said one thing that crossed the line he exploded and started yelling and ranting at Lennie until he said every complaint on his mind. ("...'I got you! You can't keep a job and you lose me ever' job I get. Jus' keep me shovin' all over the county all the time...")
  • After George's outburst, Lennie offers to run away and move into a cave and not bother George ever again, but George refuses to let Lennie off on his own. ("...'George, you want I should go away and leave you alone?'..." "...No-look! I was jus' foolin', Lennie. 'Cause I want you to stay with me...")
  • WAIT! no Lennie... I'm sorry I didn't mean it....
  • After everything was resolved with George and Lennie, Lennie begged to hear about the rabbits, or in the actual story is called the american dream with everything they want in life. ("...Lennie spoke craftily, 'Tell me-like you done before.' 'Tell you what?' 'About the rabbits.'..." "...You get a kick outta that, don't you? Awright, I'll tell you, and then we'll eat our supper...")
  • FINE! I will tell you about our American Dream... AGAIN
