In this quote, the Wilson’s car fully broke down and they are going to need to fix it rather than just put less weight. So, Tom comes to the rescue by saying, “You take out some of that stuff in the truck an’ then all you folks but me an the preacher get a move on.” (pg 228) This quote shows that Tom helping people other than his family and in a way of affecting their life. It shows this by Tom helping them with the car, earlier in the book he may not have done this but now that he understands that if he just leaves them with a broken car, they will be in very big trouble since they don’t know how to fix a car.

From Guy, who first aimed of going to “Tomorrow,”1 the dream was passed on to the teenage daughter Eep. It was Eep, who passed it on to her family.2 One by one, they held on to that belief that beyond their cave lies a more prosperous home that they could live in. While it took them one full journey to do that, they did open themselves to new possibilities, things that were once “dangerous” and “deadly” to them, but are now considered essential to improving life. With emphasis on the portrayal of Eep, the film The Croods showed that by being firm in faith and upholding a vision that highlights innate goodness, a better future is at reach for anyone who dreams for it.

It is a dream of working for themselves, of being independent, and it is a dream sufficiently powerful to draw in Candy and, temporarily, even the cynical Crooks. We also know that it is a dream shared by many thousands of itinerant ranch hands. This quote illustrates that George and Lennie are different and that they don’t want to work on ranches everyday till they die, they have ambitions is life.

A wild but not Unattractive idea suddenly came to him: He would suggest that they go back to Bangor for something to eat while they waited for the moving van, and when his three hostages to fortune got out, he would floor the accelerator and drive away without so much as a look back, foot to the mat, the wagon 's huge four-barrel carburetor gobbling expensive gasoline. He would drive south, all the way to Orlando, Florida, where he would get a job at Disney World as a medic, under a new name. But before he hit the turnpike-big old 95 southbound-he would stop by the side of the road and put the fucking cat out too. Then they rounded a final curve, and there was the house that only he had seen up until now.
