Do you know why I take care of you Lennie? Because guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. Now Aunt Clara told me to take care of you too, and make sure you don’t get into no trouble. If she were here she’d scold us for the messes we’ve gotten ourselves into. She knew you were dumb just as much as I do. Going on about the rabbits we’re going to have, all you remember is them rabbits. We're going to get the jack together and we're going to have a little house and a couple of acres and a cow and some pigs and live of the fat of the land, just like you want. We’ll have that garden we want; with all kinda of vegetables if we want a little whisky we can sell a few eggs or something, or some milk. We'd just live there. We'd belong there. There wouldn't be anymore running around the country and getting fed by a Jap cook. No, sir, we'd have our own place where we belonged and not sleep in a bunk house. Lennie we got a future and a good one too. I’m just sick of having to watch you so closely all the time, I don’t want you messing it up for us. I’d be mighty unhappy with you if you did that. But I’d have to forgive you in the end, we’re the only ones we can talk to that give a damn about us. I cant have my only friend running off into the mountain caves now can I? The only way we can reach our dream is with each other. We will get there, so just hang in there for a few more years and we’ll have everything we want. Even your rabbits.
