He showcases this when making sure Reuven does not harm his eye. “We will ask Dr. Snydmann when you leave the hospital. But no reading now.” (2) He continues to prompt Reuven not to read until he is formally allowed to.
Steinbeck also depicts George as someone that is greatly honest and true to his word as he is still loyal to Lennie even after a promise made such a long time ago. To anyone, taking care of Lennie is not an easy task. It's no different for George. He has complained in heaps of occurrences that Lennie is difficult to handle. Since Lennie is mentally challenged, George repeatedly thinks about how much simpler his life could be without Lennie.
The relation between George and Lennie are not same all the time. Some time they are like father and son because father is mostly protective and caring, George is also same as he saves Lennie from trouble and give advice what to do whenever he is in danger, so George is like father of Lennie. On the other hand, George is also like mother of Lennie as he cares about Lennie’s health as well as George is also like a close friend of Lennie as he gives good advices like staying out from Curley’s wife and take care of job ticket which is important their job. so, we can say their relationship are not constant, some time George is like a father, mother or a close friend of Lennie, it depends on which situation they
You jus’ stand there and don’t say nothing. If he finds out what a crazy bastard you are, we won’t get no job, but if he sees ya work before he hears ya talk, we’re set.

Hamlet has such faith in Horatio that he leaves him with one last request: to tell his story. The close bond between the two makes this possible because, being the one man who knows everything that happened, Horatio is the only one who can tell the story. The confidence Hamlet has in Horatio, even after death, is something only a father could have. The deep care the two have for each other is significantly proven in the final moments of Hamlet’s life. After discovering Hamlet is going to die, Horatio believes the next logical step would be to drink the poison.
To bystanders, in the book, it is hard to understand how close the pair actually is. For example, when they first arrive at the ranch and they are speaking to the boss, he questions George’s motives for speaking in place of Lennie by saying, “I said what stake you got in this guy? You takin’ his pay away from him?” (Steinbeck 22). The boss does not understand how tight of a bond George and Lennie have; so to him, George must have a different motive for caring about Lennie.
Their relationship is really weird because nobody really understands why George takes care of Lennie, but for him Lennie is like a responsibility and also means companion. This is reflected when George said this to Lennie: “No, Lennie, I ain’t mad. I never been mad, and I aint now. That’s a thing I want you to know.”
91) There was no hatred but a scared mind in which no one was there to help. Lennie runs off once he realizes what he’s done and George is the first one to find him.

From the beginning Lennie is being watched over by his guardian angel, George, he tells him what to do because he only wants the best for him. Right from the beginning we see the relation between the two George made a promise to Lennie’s aunt that he would take care of him. At the end of the movie during the decision of where Raymond would go to live ; Charlie says, “But in the course of a week, you came to have an understanding with him.” George tells Lennie not to talk or say anything to the boss until he had seen them working.
George and Lennie 's relationship is closer than most friendships now a days. George is like Lennie 's big brother and cares for him like their family. For example, when Lennie got in trouble in Weed, George did not leave him and helped him escape. Another example of George acting like a big brother to Lennie is, he holds on to Lennie 's work card so he does not lose it. George also really cares for Lennie and does not want him to leave.
Lennie gets George into trouble all of the time, and George is trying to stand his ground. George does not want to keep taking the heat for everything Lennie messes up. George does not want Lennie to tell other people their business and in chapter four, Lennie does the exact thing George told him not to do.
