- One theme is 'Friendship' between Lennie and George. Lennie counts on George for everything. The farm on which George and Lennie plan to live, the place that no one ever reaches, has a magnetic quality. They plan to live together and have this farm, which is the American Dream.
"If you don' want me I can go off in the hills an' find a cave. I can go away any time."
This quote describes that Lennie thinks George got mad or annoyed at Lennie and he is trying to please George. George still wants Lennie to stay with him.
"I was only foolin', George. I don't want no ketchup. I wouldn't eat no ketchup if it was right here beside me." If it was here, you could have some."
Lennie cant really look out for George but he tries to do the best he can.
