This senior high school English Literature quiz is about dialog in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.

Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"If you want me to, I'll put the old devil out of his misery right now and get it over with. Ain't nothing left for him."
Slim
George
Carlson
Curley
Carlson talks as if he takes pity on Candy's old, decrepit dog, but it is also true that he can't bear its presence in the bunkhouse and he volunteers eagerly to put an end to its suffering with his Luger
2.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"If I was alone I could live so easy. I could get a job an' not have no mess."
Crooks
George
Lennie
Candy
George says these lines "woodenly". Life without Lennie would be easier because he would have fewer worries, but it would also be an exceptionally lonely life. George knows that this lonely life will be his in the future because he cannot save Lennie from the consequences of killing Curley's wife
3.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Ain't many guys travel around together. I don't know why. Maybe ever'body in the whole damn world is scared of each other."
George
Candy
Slim
Curley's wife
Slim is fascinated by Lennie and George's unlikely-seeming friendship and muses thoughtfully on George's explanation for it
4.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"You wasn't big enough. They tol' me and tol' me you wasn't."
Lennie
Curley's wife
Candy
Carlson
Like a young child, Lennie often does what he wants, ignoring the warnings of others. Here he is full of regret because he has accidentally killed the puppy he loved. Even though he remembers times in the past when he has done something similar, he is unable to control his impulses
5.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Well, a show come through, an' I met one of the actors. He says I could go with the show. But my ol' lady wouldn' let me. She says because I was on'y fifteen. But the guy says I coulda. If I'd went, I wouldn't be livin' like this, you bet."
Crooks
Carlson
Curley
Curley's wife
Curley's wife feels as trapped in her life as the men on the ranch do in theirs
6.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"When they can me here I wisht somebody'd shoot me. But they won't do nothing like that. I won't have no place to go , an' I can't get no more jobs."
Crooks
Curley
Lennie
Candy
Candy's likely fate represents the end of the itinerant laborer's working life. They each know that disability, old age and loss of strength will eventually cause them to be cast aside
7.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Tell about what we're gonna have in the garden and about the rabbits in the cages and about the rain in the winter and the stove, and how thick the cream is on the milk like you can hardly cut it."
Lennie
Candy
Crooks
George
Lennie's desire to hear over and over again the dream about owning land and rabbits is reminiscent of a child wishing to hear a bedtime story. The dream is equally important to the more serious-minded George, however
8.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"I'm jus' tryin' to tell you I didn't mean nothing. I jus' though you might of saw her."
Lennie
Curley
George
Slim
Curley is nearly always seen looking for his wife. Although he usually demands aggressively to know where she is, here he is talking to Slim in a placating manner because the quiet authority of the other man knocks the bluster out of him
9.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"S'pose you had to sit out here an' read books. Sure you could play horseshoes till it got dark, but then you got to read books. Books ain't no good. A guy needs somebody — to be near him."
Crooks
Candy
Lennie
Curley
The other men exclude Crooks from their company because he is black. As a consequence he is angry as well as lonely
10.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Sure, we'd have a little house an' a room to ourself. Little fat iron stove, an' in the winter we'd keep a fire goin' in it. It ain't enough land so we'd have to work too hard."
Lennie
George
Candy
Slim
George enjoys elaborating upon the shared dream of owning land as much as Lennie enjoys listening to him
