Plot

George and Lennie head to California in order to pursue the American dream and find a job on a ranch.

George takes care of Lennie even though he had a mental instability.

George does the talking in hopes of hiding Lennie's disability, so they lie and say they are cousins.

George confided in Slim that they are not truly cousins and how they fled from their last job because Lennie touched a woman's dress and was accused of rape.

Slim gave Lennie a puppy, which Lennie accidentally killed when petting (foreshadowing).

Candy hears of George and Lennie's dream and wants to join in, offering his savings.

Lenny broke Curley's hand on accident when he instigates him.

When Curley's wife tries to comfort Lennie, she allows him to pet her hair. When Lennie pulled too hard on accident, she screamed.

In an attempt to silence her, Lennie accidentally broke her neck.

Lennie fled to the river, where George and Lennie agreed they would meet if things went wrong,

By the river, George shot Lennie to save him the pain that would come when the men from the ranch found Lennie.
