Lennie and George’s Relationship
  • It is assumed that George is using Lennie. That he makes him work and then takes his money because Lennie is less intelligent and seldom answers.
  • “Say – what you sellin’?”

“Huh?”

“I said what stake you got on this guy? You takin’ his pay away from him?”

  • It is rare that two men travel together in these hard times. This quote is from a conversation between the boss and George about Lennie and shows how sceptical the boss is towards their situation.
