"You keep away from Curley, Lennie" (Steinbeck 30).
George warns Lennie to stay away from Curley after their first confrontation. He tells Lennie that if any trouble happens, he is to hide at the pond where they spent the night before.
"Why'n't you get Candy to shoot his old dog and give him one of the pups to raise up?" (Steinbeck 36)
George and Lennie finish their conversation, and realize that someone has walked into the room. They look over to see Curley's wife, who is asking the whereabouts of her husband, explaining that he is occasionally in the bunkhouse.
Slim then enters the bunkhouse, along with the rest of the ranchers, and tells Curley's wife he had seen Curley going back to their house. She scurries out of the house, and Slim introduces himself to George and Lenny.
Soon after Slim introduces himself, Carlson walks in and begins asking Slim to help him convince Candy to put down his dog and replace it with a puppy. He also introduces himself, then quickly leaves along with the other workers after a triangle rings signifying dinner is ready.
Lennie begins trying to convince George to allow him to adopt a puppy from Slim's litter, when Curley bursts into the room demanding the location of his wife. George tells him she was there just a while ago, and so he bursts out of the bunkhouse in a hurry. George and Lenny then leave for the dinner after he is gone.
After everyone leaves, Candy's dog walks in and lies on the floor. Curley pops his head back in looking for his wife, then runs back out when the dog spots him.
