At first Equality felt awful for many of the things he had done for example; “each night […] we, Equality 7-2521, steal out and run through the darkness to our place.”(35), but sooner or later it didn’t matter much to Equality anymore. When Equality worked in his place (a dark hole in the ground from the unmentionable times) he worked on a box that made electricity when he finished it he brought it to the home of the scholars, who rejected it.

She kept telling Jaggery that her father would approve of her. When Charlotte finally reaches Rhode Island, she realizes that her father is not like what she thought. He reacted to her ways the exact way Captain Jaggery did. For example, “Somehow you teachers there filled your mind with the unfortunate capacity to invent the most outlandish, not to say unnatural tales.” This proves that Mr. Doyle doesn’t approve of Charlotte’s behavior.

It took him too long to react and when he did it was too late because Lennie’s face was already covered in blood and bruised (Steinbeck 63-64).
