Later on in the story Candy, an aging ranch handyman with a missing hand, asks George and Lennie if he can help pay for the land George picked out and live there with them. They were going to let Candy pay but he couldn’t because of Lennie’s actions. Crooks, a black stable hand, befriends Lennie and asks him if he would let Crooks hoe a garden on the land.

Willy Loman, a traveling salesman, believes that one must be well-liked in order to achieve the American dream. However, Willy does not realize that the value of hard work and devotion plays the most important role in achieving success. Willy tries to teach his falsified ideology of the American dream to his sons, Biff and Happy.
Candy's down payment causes George to believe that, perhaps, the dream can be realized. But none of them count on the tragic meeting between Curley's wife and Lennie in the barn. Even then Candy still thinks he can have his safe haven, a place where no one will throw him out when he is too old. The dream is so strong in him that he pleads with George, to no avail, to have their farm despite Lennie's death. Crooks is so named because of a crooked back caused by a kick from a horse.
