George and Lennie are different from the other men on the farm in a lot of ways. The main way that they are different is because they are together. They see the farm as a way to get enough money so that they can get to where they need to be in life but they don't like it there. ("I don' like this place, George. This ain't no good place. I wanna get outa here.") ("For two bits I'd shove out of here. If we can get jus' a few dollars in the poke we'll shove off and go up the American River and pan gold. We can make maybe a couple of dollars a day there, and we might hit a pocket.")

If I was a relative of yours I'd shoot myself."
