Kristian Phillips and William Rodell as Lenny and George"Guys like us that work on ranches is the loneliest guys in the world. They don’t belong no place. They come to a ranch and work up a stake and then they go in to town and blow their stake. And then the first thing you know they’re poundin’ their tail on some other ranch. They ain’t got nothin’ to look ahead to."

William Rodell and Kristian Phillips as George and Lennie"Tastes all right. Don't seem to be runnin' much, though. Lennie, you oughtn' to drink water when it ain't running. You'd drink water out of a gutter if you was thirsty."

Ben Stott as Curley"Come on, you big bastard. Get up on your feet. No big son-of-a-bitch is gonna laugh at me. I'll show you who's yellow."

Jonah Russell and Ben Stott as Slim and Curley"You got your sense enough to listen? Well, then you listen. I think you got your hand caught in a machine."

"He was so little. I was jus' playin' with him-an' he made like he's gonna bite me-an' I made like I'm gonna smack him-an'-I done it. An' then he was dead.
