George and Lennie are sitting around a fire eating their dinner, the night before they go to work at a ranch.When Lennie asked George to tell hime about the rabbits, he is asking George to tell him about their dream of living on a farm (with rabbits and other livestock).
DON'T TELL GEORGE! THEN HE'LL NEVER LET ME TEND THE RABBITS!
When George and Lennie first arrive at the ranch, they are met by Curly, the boss's son, who loves to tease Lennie.
I know who done it! It was Lennie! I'm going for my shot gun!
I'll get my luger
Candy's dog is old and blind. Carlson thinks he is do a good thing for both Candy and his dog to put the dog out of it's misery. Deep down Candy knows It's the right thing to do, but he doesn't want to admit it to himself because he loves his dog so much.
Le's do it now. Le's get that place now!
No Lennie, I ain't mad. We'll have a cow, and a pig, and rabbits.
Lennie is to strong for his own good, he killed his puppy because he pet it to hard. He tells Curly's wife not to tell George because he's afraid he won't let him tend the rabbits anymore. Lennie, not really understanding what he's doing, shakes Curly's wife to make sure she doesn't tell George, he ends up breaking her neck and killing her on the spot.
The men come into the barn after a game of horseshoe, and find Curly's wife dead. Everyone knows who did it, and Curly wants to head out immediately to shoot (and kill) Lennie. Everyone knows what has to be done, but no one except Curly is happy about it.
Lennie hid away in the brush by the river like he was told until George arrived. Even after all that had happened, Lennie still has faith that they will reach their goal, and get their dream. George makes sure that Lennie is happy, and knows that George forgives him, then he does what he came to do. You can tell it kills George to do it, but he didn't have a choice.
