"No, Lennie, I ain't mad."
"Let's do it now. Le's get that place now."
Before heading to their new jobs George tells the story of the rabbits to Lennie. Their dream about the rabbit is symbolic to the American dream. Which fits the theme of how everyone, even just plain simple men, have dreams they want to fulfill.

"What the hell is taking him so long?"
"Candy, you can have any one of them pups you want."
Candy was in Crook's room, telling him about the rabbit dream. Curley's wife came in and crushed their dreams. This could be a turning point because it shows how the dream may not work out. This scene supports the theme of how there will always be roadblocks when we try to accomplish our dreams.
Lennie had accidently killed Curleys wife, and now George has to kill Lennie. This event was foreshadowed by the death of Candy's dog. And this event is also symbolic of the death of the American dream. Fitting the topic of dreams the theme would be that even the most well thought out plans don't always come true.
No one liked Candy's old dog besides Candy. Carlson has had enough of the smelly dog so, with Candy's permission, he took it outside to shoot it; while Candy and the others remained inside. Candy and his dog are the foils to George and Lennie. This event is foreshadowing The death of Lennie. When Carlson shot Candy's dog it supported the theme of how sometimes friends have to make sacrifices for each other.
