After some deliberation, George and Lennie agree that he can come with them and that, with pooling their 3 salaries together, only a month of work on the ranch will be needed to afford to buy the farm. Out of a series of articles that he wrote about the transient labor camps in California came the inspiration for his greatest book, The Grapes Of Mice and Men book Wraththe odyssey of the Joad family, dispossessed of their farm in the Dust Bowl and seeking a new home, only to be driven on from camp to camp. Today, more than thirty years after his death, he remains one of America's greatest writers and cultural figures. During the next five years he supported himself as a laborer and journalist in New York City, all the time working on his first novel, Cup of Gold George expresses the hope that Lennie will just be put in jail, but still taken care of and Candy contradicts that, assuring him that Curley will set out to have Lennie lynched. Lennie is an optimist and a dreamer above all else and is horrified by his mistake in killing the woman.

That Sunday, Lennie is sitting in the barn stroking the puppy, who has died. Soon after the boss leaves his son, Curley arrives. One of these restrictions is the fact that Crooks has to sleep in a different area of the ranch then the rest of the farm hands, an old stable. Candy: An aging ranch handyman, Candy lost his hand in an accident and worries about his future on the ranch.

Steinbeck presents this as "something that happened" or as his friend coined for him "non-teleological thinking" or "is thinking", which postulates a non-judgmental point of view. George cautions the two men to keep their plan Of Mice and Men book secret. When the other men arrive, George lets them believe that Lennie had the gun, and George wrestled it away from him and shot him. That dream cements their relationship and strikes a chord so convincingly for the reader. Candy tells Lennie that he has been thinking about it and might know of a way that their farm can make money with the rabbits that Lennie so desperately wants to keep. She admits that life with Curley is a disappointment, and wishes that she had followed her dream of becoming a movie star.
