The promise from Curley “I’m gonna shoot the guts outta that big bastard myself” suggests we may see Lennie’s demise at the hands of Curley. Curley and Lennie do fight earlier in the book, but it doesn’t really have a proper resolution and it seems like there is more to follow. Curley shows hate to Lennie from their first meeting beginning with “Lennie squirming [squirmed] under his [the] look and shifting [shifted] his feet nervously. Curley stepped gingerly close to him.” This displays the immediate rivalry between Lennie and Curley, because Curley first singles out and confronts Lennie for seaming weak. The novella seemed quite ready to wrap this conflict up in the climax with Lennie being shot or killed some other way by Curley, but Steinbeck chooses a different route.
During the fight, George says, “‘Get him Lennie’.... Curley’s fist was swinging when Lennie reached for it … and his closed fist lost in Lennie's big hand”(Steinbeck 63). Man vs man conflict is happening among Lennie and Curley.George is yelling at Lennie to “get him” being, Lennie would never try to hurt someone on purpose without an order, and when he does he squeezes Curley’s
That was what he wanted. For somebody to tell him ‘No’. To have somebody lay down the law, set the limits, give him something solid to stand on.” (Hinton 170) Nobody ever punished Bob for anything he did. Because of this, Bob made his goal to push his parents’ boundaries, to finally get them angry at him and not just blame themselves. This is what led to him becoming an alcoholic, which in turn made him seem like a violent douche.
Roland proudly refuses, saying that they need no help because the rear guard is strong enough to hold them. While Roland and the Franks fight hard, there's no way they can hold off the Saracens, based on sheer numbers.

The credibility of the medium is never taken into question showing that the credibility of the medium is about on par with the other two testimonies. The Samurai tells a story of great grief.

The Samurai soon does the one thing he believes to be honorable in his situation and kills himself.
Georges declaration to Lennie, “Don’t even look at that bit**. I don’t care what she says, or what she does. I seen ‘em poison before, but I never seen no piece of Jailbait worse than her,” (pg. 32) this creates a sense of how much less she is viewed by men. The impoverished little man, has to tell the mentally handicapped psycho to stay away from a woman they haven’t even met yet, because she is worse than them.
George had a decision to make, would he let the boys from the farm lynch Lennie for killing Curley’s wife or would he kill him himself. When Candy’s dog was killed he thought he “ought of shot that dog [himself]” and regretted not doing so, this is a mistake George does not wish to make. This is why he himself steals Carlson’s gun and as his “hand [shake] violently,” but when he heard the men getting closer he had no choice and “he pulled the trigger”(Steinbeck 111). In the last few sentences Slim invites George for a drink, now George became one of the men that he said Lennie and he would never

The first character foil they have is their personalities, Amir and Hassan have very distinct personalities and they show especially early in the book. Amir is not brave and Hassan seems to be, in the book when Hassan was getting raped by Assef Amir just stood there and watched. He didn’t stop because he was too much of a coward. Amir could've stopped the tragedy that had happened to his friend but he did nothing. Hassan on the other hand was offered to be let free if he gave away the kite but refused and that shows his braveness and loyalty.
George did the right thing when he killed Lennie because Lennie’s a danger to others, George was showing compassion, and Lennie’s a danger to himself. George made the right choice because Lennie’s a danger to others. Lennie was smiling at the memory of the ranch when Curley caught him and then he demanded Lennie to fight him. When Lennie refused Curley started hitting him so George told him to fight back. So Lennie fought back “Curley’s fist was swinging when Lennie reached for it.
I found Roger’s (Matthew) excuses very intriguing, it was thoughts that never crossed through my mind. Rogers’s perspective was totally opposite from the prosecutor’s perspective. In Roger’s shoes, he wanted to end the conflict between Ralph, Piggy and Jack so he leaned on the lever to push the boulder which would interrupt them and hopefully stop them from fighting. On the other hand, the prosecutor’s point of view is that Roger leaned on the boulder to purposely hit Piggy so that he would die. One frequent occurrence that surprised me was how the witnesses would say something they weren’t supposed to and quickly change their answer, as if they were lying about something.
So, he decided to man up by challenging Tybalt to a duel. And then finished him by killed Tybalt. This quote showed that Tybalt is always looking for a fight and that he always thinks he is going to win anything no matter what. He is a coquie and a prideful person. If he had not started the fight there would not have been no death, because Tybalt killed Mercutio and with force Romeo killed Tybalt, Romeo got banished which changed everything in the story.
