  • George
    • ''you done good'' -like a parent to Lennie, guiding and praising him
    • ''im not mad, i'm never mad at you'' shows he is calm under pressure and strong
    • wants to belong somewhere, needs support instead of always giving it and having no one understand his issues
    • ''you goddamn crazy bastard!'' - uses rough language like the other workers on ranch would
    • 'I ain't mad'' he says before shooting Lennie, supports the fact he is doing it out of compassion
    • ''restless eyes'' - he's unhappy ''small and quick, dark of face'' suggests intelligence
    • ''I ain't gonna let 'em hurt Lennie'' shows that he cares and is protective about him and wants him to kill him out of mercy, not revenge and hatred like Curley.
    • ''denim trousers and coats'' a poor migrant worker
    • he's intelligent and clean, has standards of living. Possibly seen as sceptical as he doesn't trust anyone, keeps himself to himself
      • tells Lennie not to drink too much water out of the lake as it's dirty
      • ''what the hell kind of bed you giving us anyways. We don't want no pants rabbits''.
    • Uses same gun as Carlson to shoot Lennie, reflects the relationship is the same.
      • Untitled
    • talks about how much better his life would be without Lennie, although is devoted to him. Lennie threats to leave but George wouldn't have any of it
    • Lennie's childish behaviour and demand of the dream enables George to restore some hope and faith and motivate him to work towards it
