(MEN SHOUTING)
GEORGE: Over here.
(DOGS BARKING)
MAN 1: Take 'em down. Take 'em down.
(DOGS BARKING)
MAN 2: Keep looking.
(SHOUTING)
(SOFTLY) Stay down!
(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)
That's a boy, that's a boy, sniff it out.
MAN 3: Here we go. Come on. Come on.
MAN 4: Pick it up, boy. Pick it up. You got it.
(MAN SHOUTING AT A DISTANCE)
(EXCLAIMS)
(PANTING) Come on. Come on.
Lennie!
Get down.
(TRAIN HORN TOOTING)
GEORGE: Hurry up.
Get up there.
(EXHALES DEEPLY)
(PANTS)
George?
What you want?
Where are we going?
(SIGHS) To get away from here.
I'm all wet.
Come on, let's take off your coat. Come on.
Come on.
Just lay down and get some rest.
(BREATHES DEEPLY)
George?
Go to sleep, Lennie.
I'm sleeping, George.
(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)
George, where are we going?
We're going to a ranch to work.
(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)
(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)
BUS DRIVER: Come on. You get off here.
George, wake up.
You're in Soledad.
We're in Soledad.
We're going to the Tyler Ranch.
You've got to get off here. The ranch is down the road.
How far?
Just down the road a stretch.
GEORGE: Where the hell is it?
George?
Yeah.
Where are we going?
Jesus Christ, you're a crazy bastard.
I forgot, George. I tried not to, then I forgot.
I spend all my time telling you things,
then you forget 'em.
I remember about the rabbits.
Hell with them rabbits. That's all you can remember.
Okay. Listen, this time don't forget.
We went into Murray and Ready's
and they give us work cards and bus tickets.
George, I remember that now.
But, George, I ain't got mine. I must have lost it.
You never had none. I got both of them.
You think I'd let you carry your own work card?
But I thought I had it in my own pocket.
What did you take out of that pocket?
There's nothing in the pocket, George.
I know it ain't. You got it in your hand.
Now, what you got in your hand?
(STAMMERING) George, that's just my mouse.
But I didn't kill it, George. Honest, I found it dead.
(SIGHS)
Give it here.
George, leave me have it.
Give it here!
What do you want with a dead mouse anyway?
I was just petting it with the fingers while we was walking along.
Yeah, well, you ain't petting no mice when you walk with me.
You gonna give me that mouse, or am I gonna have to sock you?
Come on.
(SOBS)
Blubbering like a baby, a big guy like you.
Lennie, I ain't taking it away for meanness.
That mouse ain't fresh, Lennie.
You get another mouse that's fresh, I'll let you keep him a little while.
(SOBBING) I don't know where there is no other mouse.
The lady used to give me some,
but that lady ain't here no more.
Lady?
Don't you even remember who that lady was?
That's your Aunt Clara. She stopped giving them to you.
You was always killing them by petting them too hard.
I'll tell you what I'll do.
First chance I get, I'll get you a puppy.
Huh? That'd be better than mice.
You could pet 'em harder.
Okay?
Hmm?
Hey. Hey! Hey! Hey!
Son of a bitch!
What did you say, George?
I said son of a bitch.
That bus driver lied to us.
Just too damn lazy to stop at the ranch gate.
Son of a bitch!
Son of a bitch!
(CHUCKLES)
Jesus Christ, George, I said it too.
Yeah, I heard you.
George, we wasn't supposed to say that.
Yeah, why not?
Aunt Clara don't like it.
Yeah, well, she's dead.
Lennie, don't drink so much.
That's good, George.
You have a drink. You have a good, big drink.
It's nice here.
I think we'll just spend the night and go to the ranch tomorrow.
Ain't we gonna get no supper?
Yeah, sure we are.
I got three cans of beans in my bindle.
I like beans with ketchup.
I like beans with ketchup.
We ain't got any.
Go on. Go get some wood so we can build a fire.
We got enough beans here for four men.
I like them with ketchup.
We ain't got any.
God dammit!
Whatever we ain't got, that's what you want!
George? George?
What you want?
George, I was only fooling. I don't want no ketchup.
If it was here you could have some.
George, I wouldn't eat no ketchup.
I'd leave it all for you
and you could cover your beans with it.
I wouldn't touch none of it.
When I think of the swell time I could have without you,
I go nuts. I never get any peace.
If I was alone I could live so easy.
I could get a job and work and no trouble.
No mess at all. And when the end of the month come,
I could take my 50 bucks, I could go into town,
I could get whatever I want.
Huh, I could stay in a cathouse all night.
What do I got?
I got you. You can't keep a job.
Lose me every job I get.
Just keep me shoving all over the country all the time.
That ain't the worst. You get in trouble.
You do bad things and I got to get you out, all the time!
Crazy son of a bitch, you keep me in hot water all the time.
George, you...
You want I should go away and leave you alone?
Where the hell would you go?
I could go...
Could go off in them hills there and find a cave.
Yeah? How'd you eat?
You ain't got sense enough to find nothing to eat.
I find things. I don't need this nice food with ketchup.
George, if you don't want me, I'll go off in them hills and get a cave.
And I wouldn't get no mice stole off me either!
Jesus Christ, your Aunt Clara wouldn't like you running off by yourself.
Hey!
Go get some wood so we can build a fire before it gets dark.
George?
What?
Tell like you, me, like you done before.
Tell you what?
About the rabbits.
Not tonight.
Come on, George. Tell like you done before.
Please. Please. Please.
You get a kick out of that, don't you?
Okay. I will.
Guys like us that work on ranches
are the loneliest guys in the world.
They ain't got no family and they don't belong no place.
They got nothing to look ahead to...
But, not us, George. Tell about us now.
Well, we ain't like that.
No.
We got a future.
Future.
We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us.
If them other guys gets in jail,
they can rot for all anybody cares.
But not us, George, because I...
See, see, I got you to look after me,
but you got me to look after.
But, George, tell about how it's gonna be.
(CHUCKLING) Okay.
Someday, we're gonna have us a little house
and a couple acres, and a cow
and a pig and chickens.
Pig and chick.
And we gonna live off the fat of the land, George, and have rabbits.
And have rabbits.
Go on, George.
But, George, tell what we got in the garden.
Okay.
Then tell about
the rabbits in winter and about the stove, and, uh...
And how thick the cream was on the milk.
Yeah.
Like you...
Go ahead, George, tell it.
Why don't you do it yourself?
You know all of it.
George, no!
George, no. It's not the same that, in... When I tell it.
That's not the same.
George, tell what... How I get to tend the rabbits.
(CHUCKLES)
We're gonna have a big vegetable patch
and we're gonna have a rabbit hutch.
Rabbit hutch.
And down in the flat we'll have a little field of alfalfa
for the rabbits.
For the rabbits.
And I get to tend the rabbits.
Yeah, you get to tend the rabbits.
When it rains in the winter,
we'll just say hell with going to work,
and we'll just build a fire in the stove,
and we'll just sit there,
and we'll listen to the rain.
Lennie, I want you to look around here.
If you get into any trouble,
I want you to come right here.
You hide over here in the brush.
Hide in the brush.
You hide in the brush.
Till I come for you. Can you remember that?
Sure I can, George.
Hide in the brush 'til you come for me.
But you ain't gonna get in no trouble, because if you do,
I ain't gonna let you tend the rabbits.
I'm not gonna get into any trouble.
Okay.
I can remember, by God.
Let's get some rest.
It's gonna be nice sleeping here
looking up at the leaves.
George?
What do you want?
I think we should get them different color rabbits.
Sure. Red rabbits, and blue rabbits, and green rabbits.
(LAUGHS)
(BARKING)
Leave 'em alone.
Be quiet, dogs. Be quiet, god dammit.
Be quiet! Shut up, Smiley. Shut up.
Smiley, down.
(WHIMPERS)
You fellows looking for something?
Yeah, yeah. We come here to work. Where's the boss?
He's up at the ranch house.
I'm Candy.
Come on. I'll take you up there.
He was expecting you last night.
He was sore as hell that you wasn't here to go out this morning.
He come right in when we was having breakfast and he said,
"God dammit, where the hell is them new men?"
And he gives the stable buck hell too.
You see, the stable buck's a nigger. Ha!
There he goes. He got a crooked back
where a horse kicked him one day.
The boss gives him hell every time he gets mad.
(LAUGHS) But the stable buck,
the stable buck don't give a damn about that.
Boss' office in here.
(KNOCKING ON DOOR)
Come in.
These guys just came.
I wrote Murray and Ready
for two men to work this morning.
Where's your work slips?
(WHISPERING) Is my slip in there?
It wasn't Murray and Ready's fault.
Says right here you were supposed to be ready to work this morning.
Uh, bus driver lied to us. We had to walk ten miles.
I don't give a damn about that.
What's your name?
George Milton.
What's yours?
His name's Lennie Small.
Where you boys been working?
Up around Weed.
What about you?
Yeah, him too.
He's not much of a talker, is he?
No, no, he ain't, but he's a hell of a good worker.
He's strong as a bull.
Strong as a bull.
(LAUGHS)
Uh, he can do anything you tell him. He's uh...
But he's a good skinner. He can rassle grain bags, drive a cultivator.
Cultivator. Ah, but...
I ain't sayin' he's bright. He ain't,
but he's a damn good worker.
Say, what you selling?
What's your stake in this guy?
Are you taking his pay from him?
Hell, no.
Uh, he's my cousin.
I told his old lady I'd take care of him.
He got kicked in the head by a horse when he was a kid.
All right.
But you'd better not try to put anything over on me.
Now catch your grain teams after dinner.
Well, I wasn't kicked in the head with no horse, George.
Be a damn good thing if you was.
It'd save everybody a hell of a lot of trouble.
You... You said I was your cousin.
Well, that was a lie.
If I was a relative of yours I'd shoot myself.
(DOG BARKING)
Come on. I'll show you the bunkhouse.
Come on. Come on, boys. Come on, come on.
You can, uh, you can take these two bunks right here.
Oh, what is it?
(CHUCKLES)
That's a hell of an old dog.
Yeah.
And he's getting older too.
I've had him since he was a pup.
God, he was a great sheep dog when he was younger.
Hey, what the hell is this?
Says, "Positively kills lice, roaches and other scourges."
What the hell kind of beds are you giving us anyway?
Now, wait a minute there, young fella. Wait a minute.
(CHUCKLES) Wait. Let me see what you're talking about.
Oh, yeah, yeah. Now I remember.
Last guy that had this bunk was a blacksmith.
He'd squirt this stuff around even if there was no bugs.
He used to, he used to wash his hands even after he ate.
(LAUGHS)
Candy! You seen my old man?
Yeah, he's up at the house.
These the two new guys the old man's been waiting for?
Yeah, we just came in.
Let the big guy talk.
Suppose he don't wanna talk.
What the hell are you getting into this for?
We travel together.
Oh. Oh. So it, so it's that way.
Yes, that way.
And you won't let the big guy talk, is that it?
We have just come in.
(CHUCKLES)
Yeah, well, next time you answer when you're spoken to.
Say, what the hell, Lennie didn't do nothing to him.
That's the Boss's son.
Curley's pretty handy with his fists.
Done a lot of fighting in the ring.
Yeah, well, what the hell's he got against Lennie?
Well, I'll tell you what.
Curley's like a lot of little guys.
Hates big guys,
kind of like he is mad at them 'cause he ain't a big guy.
Yeah, yeah. Well, he better make no mistake about Lennie.
Lennie ain't handy. This Curley bastard's gonna get hurt
if he messes around with Lennie.
Yeah, well...
Hey, hey, come here, I want to show you something.
Come on, come on, come on, come on.
Come here, come here
I want to show you something.
You see that glove on his left hand?
GEORGE: Yeah.
Well, that glove's full of Vaseline.
What the hell for?
Curley says he's keeping that hand soft for his wife.
(CHUCKLES)
That's a real nice thing to tell around.
Come on, boy. Come on.
(LAUGHS)
Lennie, look.
See that guy?
LENNIE: Yeah.
The one that was just in here?
Yeah.
He figures he got you scared.
He'll take a sock at you the first chance he gets.
George, I don't want no trouble.
Don't let him sock at me.
Just try to keep away from him, will you?
If he comes in the bunkhouse again you move clearly to the other side of the room.
George?
George, you ain't mad at me, are you?
No, Lennie, I ain't mad.
Just try to keep away from Curley
Don't let him pull you in.
Sure, George. George, I wasn't going to say a word.
You get in any trouble, you remember what told you.
If I get in any trouble, I don't get to tend them rabbits.
No, that's not what I mean.
Remember where we slept last night down by the river?
(PANTING)
I'm looking for Curley.
He was here a minute ago, but he went.
Oh.
(LOW INDISTINCT CHATTER)
Sometimes, Curley's in here.
He ain't now.
Well, if he ain't, guess I better look someplace else.
If I see him, I'll tell you was lookin' for him.
Nobody can't blame a person for looking.
See you around.
She is pretty.
Lennie...
Didn't you think she's pretty, too?
Listen to me, god dammit! Don't you even look at her.
I don't care what she says or what she does,
she's a rat trap if I ever seen one.
But I wasn't doing nothing.
No, but when she was shoving her legs around
you weren't looking the other way neither.
Hmm? You keep away from her!
I don't like this place.
(NEIGHS)
(LOW INDISTINCT CHATTER)
You the new guys?
Yeah.
I'm Slim. You're gonna be on my team.
I'm George Milton. This here's Lenny Small.
You two travel around together?
Yeah.
There ain't many guys traveling around together.
I don't know why.
Maybe everybody in the whole damn world's just scared of each other.
Maybe.
So, you ever bucked barley before?
Hell, yes. I ain't nothin' to scream about,
but Lennie's strong as a bull.
Good.
I got a pair of punks on my team,
they don't know a barley bag from a blue ball.
(CHUCKLES)
These guys just came.
I meant to ask you, Slim,
how many puppies your bitch have?
Well, she slung eight of 'em. I drowned four right off.
She couldn't feed that many, so I just kept the biggest.
(DOG BARKS)
CARLSON: Yeah, Candy's dog is old and no good.
You ought to get Candy to shoot that dog.
Then you could give him one of your puppies.
Okay.
George, ask that man, can I have one of his puppies?
Yeah, I will. Don't worry.
Come on. Get up here.
(INDISTINCT CHATTERING)
(GRUNTS)
(GRUNTS)
(EXCLAIMS)
(MAN EXCLAIMING)
You done real good today, Lennie. You done real good.
Okay, I'll ask him now.
Hey, Slim.
Yeah?
(INAUDIBLE)
(SOFTLY) Come on.
(CHUCKLING)
George, can have this white one?
Well, if that's the one you want.
Can he stay here and hold it awhile?
Sure.
Lennie, you can't take that pup out of here.
He is too young to leave his mother.
I ain't going to, George.
(WHIMPERING)
(WHISPERING) Come on.
(GIBBERISH)
That's a good dog. Take it easy.
(CHATTERING)
You talking today?
Naw, I ain't talking. He is too busy working.
Is he a good worker?
Best I ever had.
What about his partner?
What about him?
Is he a good worker? My old man wants to know.
(SNICKERS)
Yeah, he's a good worker.
Ha! Get up.
(LOW INDISTINCT CHATTER)
Come on, Violet. Come on, girl.
George, this mule has a sore foot.
Lead her back to the stable and ask Crooks to give you another one.
Sure.
Come on, girl. Come on.
Go on, now.
Jake!
(SOFTLY) Come on, girl.
That a girl. Come on.
Come on, now. Come on.
Come on.
Whoa.
Crooks!
Can I help?
No.
I'm looking for Crooks. This mule's got a hurt foot.
He ain't here. Nobody's here but me.
(CHUCKLES) Now you.
I feel so lazy today. You feel lazy?
No.
(SIGHS)
I could take a nap right here.
It's nice and cool here in the barn, and quiet.
Everybody out in the fields working in the hot sun.
Here we are in a cool barn.
I got a hurt foot, too.
I got mad at Curley last night,
kicked at him and missed, and kicked a chair instead.
Let go of that old mule and talk to me!
Are you from far away?
Pretty far.
How far is far away?
What's the town you came from?
You wouldn't know it if I told you.
You got a sweetheart back there?
No.
Did you ever have a sweetheart?
No.
You never had a sweetheart?
No.
(GIGGLES)
You're kidding me.
A good looking guy like you must have had a million sweethearts.
Your name's George, ain't it?
What the hell you doing out here?
Nothing. Just trying to keep cool in the barn.
I ain't talking to you.
Then who are you talking to?
I'm talking to him!
His name's George.
I know what his name is.
What are you doing out here?
Minding my own business.
Yeah.
The last guy I caught out in the barn minding his own business,
I beat the hell out of him and kicked him off my ranch.
Get on back to the house!
You don't own me, Curley.
Shut up. Get back in the house.
(PUPPY WHIMPERING)
(LOW INDISTINCT CHATTER)
...about two thousand, four thousand feet.
How do you like your pup, Lennie?
I like that puppy. It's white like I wanted.
Lennie.
LENNIE: Yeah.
I told you not to bring that pup in here.
George, I ain't got no pup in here.
George. George, give it to me!
George, give it to me.
George, I didn't mean no harm.
George, please, I'll take it back to the barn.
I just wanted to feel him a little bit.
All right. Don't you take him out no more.
Jesus. He's still just like a kid, ain't he?
(GIBBERISH)
Either of you guys got a slug of whiskey?
Uh-uh.
I got a gut ache.
No, I ain't. I'd drink it myself if I had it.
And I ain't got no gut ache.
(GROANS)
Come here.
God Almighty, that dog of yours stinks, Candy.
He's got no teeth. He's all stiff from rheumatism.
(CHUCKLING) Ain't no good to you.
Hell, he ain't no good to himself.
Why don't you just shoot him, Candy?
(CHUCKLING) Well, I couldn't do that.
I had him too long. I herded sheep with him.
That poor old dog just suffers himself all the time.
No. No.
Look.
Take him out and shoot him
right in the back of the head.
Right there.
Hell, he'd never even know what hit him.
Aw, I couldn't do that.
I had him too long.
I'll tell you what, Candy. I'll shoot him for you.
Then it won't be you that done it.
Naw.
Look, Slim's bitch has got a litter right now.
I'll bet you Slim would give you one of her pups to raise.
Sure.
You can have any one of them pups you want.
No, no, no.
SLIM: Carlson's right, Candy.
That dog ain't no good to himself.
Hey, Slim. Read this.
"Dear Editor, I read your magazine for six years
"and think it's the best in the market.
"I like stories by Peter Rand."
What you want me to read that for?
Well, go on. Read the name at the bottom.
"Yours for success, William Tanner."
You met Bill Tanner, right?
Yeah. Bald-headed guy, drove a cultivator.
WHITT: That's him.
Candy, if you want me to,
I'll put that old dog out of his misery right now.
Won't hurt him at all.
Let's wait till tomorrow.
Well, I don't see no reason for it. Let's get it over with.
We can't sleep with that stinking dog in here.
(WHIMPERS)
All right.
Take him.
Come on, boy. Come on. He won't even feel it.
Come on boy. Come on.
Carlson! Get a shovel.
Yeah.
Candy, you can have any one of them pups you want.
Uh, does anybody want to play a little rummy?
Yeah.
You deal.
(GUNSHOT)
(WHIMPERS)
Hey.
(GRUNTS)
Hey, hey.
(GRUNTS)
Slim?
Yeah.
I can't keep up with that guy. It'll kill me.
All right. Jack!
Yeah.
Take Mike's place.
Aw, Slim...
Just for a little while. Mike, you take Jack's place.
Pedro, when was the last time you...
(GRUNTS)
So how long you and Lennie been together, George?
A long time, a real long time.
Really?
Seems kind of funny, you two traveling around together.
What's funny about it?
Well, a cuckoo like him and a smart guy like you.
Well, I ain't so smart
or I wouldn't be bucking barley for my 50 bucks a month.
I guess you're right.
How'd you two meet up?
Well, I knew his Aunt Clara.
She took him when he was a boy. She raised him up.
And when she died, Lennie just come along with me working.
Uh-huh.
I used to play jokes on him 'cause he's too damn dumb to take care of himself.
He'd do any damn thing I told him.
Put that on back in here.
One day, a bunch of guys
standing around on the Sacramento River.
Uh-huh.
I turned to him and I says, "Jump in, Lennie."
And he jumps. He couldn't swim a stroke.
(CHUCKLES)
He damn near drowned before we could get to him.
He's so damn nice to me for pulling him out.
He clean forgot I told him to jump in.
He's a nice fella.
A guy don't need no sense to be a nice fella.
Yeah. But he gets in trouble all the time
'cause he's so god damn dumb.
Like what happened up north in Weed.
What'd he do in Weed?
He seen this girl in a red dress,
and the dumb bastard that he is, he just...
He wants to touch everything he likes,
so he reaches out to touch this red dress.
So the girl starts screaming and that gets Lennie all mixed up,
so he holds on and he won't let go,
'cause that's the only thing he can think to do.
So what happened?
Well, she runs off across the field screaming.
So me and Lennie take off running.
So pretty soon here are a bunch of guys with dogs coming after us.
Had to hide in the irrigation ditch until it was safe to get away.
He didn't hurt the girl none?
Hell, no. He just scared her.
Well, he ain't mean.
I can tell a mean guy a mile off.
BOSS: Milton!
I ain't paying you to stand around. Get back to work.
We just came over for a drink of water.
You get back to work. You get these men moving.
They're way behind.
You men get moving here! Let's go!
(INDISTINCT SHOUTS)
God dammit, stop that racket!
Lenny, I told you not to bring that pup in here.
I ain't got no pup.
(LAUGHS)
You boys seen my wife?
She ain't been here.
Where the hell is Slim?
Gone to the barn.
Carlson? Do you think he's going to find Slim in the barn with his wife?
He'd better not tangle with Slim.
Curley's lookin' for a fight. I gotta see this.
Come on, George!
No, I'll stay here. Thanks.
Is Curley's wife in the barn?
If she was I didn't see her.
George, both the ends is the same.
Why are both the ends just the same?
I don't know. It's just the way they make them.
Are you sure she didn't come in the barn like she come in here?
No, she never.
You can give me a good whorehouse every time.
A guy can go in, get drunk,
get it all out of his system all at once, and no messes.
George.
Yeah?
How long is it gonna be till we get the little place
and live off the fat little land?
We gotta get some money together first.
I know a little place where you can get cheap,
but they ain't giving it away.
Tell about that place.
It's ten acres.
It's got a windmill, got a little shack on it, and a chicken run.
Got rabbits, George?
(CHUCKLING) Well, I could easily build a few hutches
and you could feed 'em alfalfa.
You're damn right. You're goddamn right I could!
George, but, George, tell about that house.
Well, we have a little house and we have a room to ourself.
And we have a little fat iron stove
and in the winter we keep a fire going in it.
And rabbits, George. But I, um, I tend 'em.
Uh, how do I tend them rabbits?
Well, you go out to the alfalfa field.
You have a sack.
And then you fill up that sack and you bring it in
and you put it in the rabbit cage.
(LAUGHS)
You have a few pigeons that go flying around the windmill
like they done when, when I was a kid.
And it'd be our own.
Nobody could can us. We don't like a guy,
we just say, "Get the hell out."
If a friend come along why we'd have extra bunk.
We'd just say, "Why don't you spend the night,"
and by God he would.
(CHUCKLES)
We'd have a dog and a couple of cats,
but you've got to make sure them cats don't get them rabbits.
You just...
But, you just let them try.
I'm gonna break them goddamn cats' necks.
I smash them cats with a stick.
(CHUCKLES)
CANDY: You know a place like this?
Suppose I do. What's it to you?
How much they want for a place like that?
Could get it for 600 bucks.
Old people that owns it is broke.
I ain't much good with only one hand, uh.
That's why they give me a job sweeping.
And they give me $250 'cause I lost my hand.
And I got 50 more saved in the bank right now.
That's 300.
And I got 50 more coming at the end of the month.
Suppose I went in with you fellows.
That'd be $350 that I'd put in.
Now, let me tell you something, I could cook,
and I could tend the chickens,
and I could hoe in the garden, huh?
Now, how would that be?
Okay.
I got to think about that. We was always gonna do it by ourselves.
We was gonna do it by ourselves.
Well, now, wait a minute. I tell you what.
I'd make a will and leave my share to you guys in case I kick off.
I ain't got no relatives or nothing.
You fellows got any money? Maybe we can do it right now, huh?
We got 10 bucks between us.
We got 10 bucks.
Ten bucks.
Yeah.
Well...
You seen what they done to my dog.
They said he wasn't no good no more.
I wish somebody'd shoot me when I ain't no good,
but they won't do that.
They'll can me, and I ain't gonna have no place to go.
Look. If me and Lennie work a month and we don't spend nothin',
we'll have a 100 bucks. And you got 350?
Yeah, and you can have every cent of it.
That'd be 450.
Jesus Christ, I bet we could get it for that.
And then you and Lennie could go get her started
and I'd get a job and make up the rest.
I'm gonna take that goddamn pup.
Sure, sure, sure. You know what I'm gonna do?
I'm gonna write those two old people that we'll take it
and Candy will send $100 to hold it?
I sure will.
And I'll have 30 more dollars the time you guys is ready to quit.
(LAUGHS)
And I get to tend the rabbits.
Tell him, George. Tell him he can't do it.
Yeah, yeah.
And I'll get to hoeing the garden even if I ain't no good at it.
(LAUGHS) Sure.
They got a nice stove there?
Yeah, yeah. They got a nice stove. They got a real nice stove.
But I bet that pup will like it there, by Christ.
We're gonna do it, god dammit.
We can fix up that little old place and we'll go live there.
When we gonna do it?
One month. Right smack in one month.
(INDISTINCT CHATTER)
Now, don't tell nobody about it.
Between just us three and nobody else.
Don't tell nobody.
George, I ought to have shot that dog myself.
I shouldn't ought let no stranger shoot my dog.
SLIM: Shut up. I'm sick and tired of...
CURLEY: Slim, I just asked you!
You've been asking me too often and I'm damn sick of it!
You can't look after your goddamn wife.
What do you expect me to do about it, huh?
You lay off me.
Didn't mean nothing by it.
Well, I said, lay off.
Just thought you might have seen her, that's all.
Why the hell don't you tell her to stay home where she belongs?
You keep out of this.
You goddamn punk. You're yellow as a frog belly.
I don't care if you're the best welter-weight in the country,
you come for me I'll kick your goddamn head in.
(MAN CLUCKING)
(LAUGHING)
What the hell you laughing about?
Huh? You!
Come on, you big bastard, get up.
No big son of a bitch is gonna laugh at me. Get up.
I'll show you who's yella. Get up!
CARLSON: You got no cause for...
Get up!
MAN 1: Come on, Curley.
Get up and fight.
He ain't do nothing. Leave him alone.
(GROANS)
MAN 2: Cut it out, Curley.
MAN 1: Come on, Lennie.
MAN 3: Lennie, fight back!
Get him, Lennie!
Fight back, come on!
Get him, Lennie, get him.
(GRUNTS)
(HISSING)
(GRUNTING)
(SCREAMS)
Get him off of me. Get him off of me.
Lennie!
Slim! Help me!
Lennie!
(SCREAMING)
(GRUNTING)
GEORGE: Lennie, let go! Lennie!
Let go of his hand! Let go!
(GROANS)
(GRUNTING)
You told me to, George, you told me to!
GEORGE: I know, I know. Take it easy now. Calm down.
We got to get him to a doctor.
Carlson, get the wagon hitched up.
We'll take him into Soledad to get him fixed up.
(SOBBING) I didn't want to hurt him. I didn't want to hurt him.
I know. I know.
It ain't your fault, Lennie. This punk had it coming to him.
(GROANS)
Slim, is Curley's old man gonna can us now?
Hey, you hear me? Huh?
Hey! You hear me?
Huh?
I think you, uh, you got your hand caught in a machine.
Now, if you don't tell nobody what happened, we ain't going to.
But you just tell, and try to get this guy canned,
we're gonna tell everybody what really happened.
You got that? Huh?
(GROANING)
George, you and Whitt give me a hand. Come on.
(MOANS)
Pick him up. That's it.
Candy, get the door.
Whitt, you go on into town with Carlson.
(SOBBING)
George.
GEORGE: Jesus, you look like hell.
