In the story George and Lennie have been kicked out of the town Weed because of an incident that happened to Lennie in weed Ultimately, George stays with Lennie through thick and thin while on the ranch miles ahead from Weed. Lennie appears to have trouble there on the ranch he kills the boss's son’s wife and kills a puppy that was given to him.

Steinbeck shows readers how poorly the elderly were treated before Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s social security program more formally known as the “New Deal”. The social security program created in the late 1930’s allows people to be able to retire at a set age or with a disability, whether it is due to old age or disability. Candy stays nervous and desires to make a life outside of the ranch. His beloved hound dog is a parallel to Candy in the fact that both are decrepit and physically useless.

His behaviour and mindset following the revelation that his dream is no longer obtainable clearly indicate that George no longer believes in his dream, he has acknowledged the fact that his dream is no longer attainable. When George discovers that Lennie has killed Curley’s wife, he ignores Candy’s pleas to maintain hope that their dream can come true, rather he begins to envision himself living the life of a lonely migrant farm worker. A quote that illustrates this belief can be found on page 93 where George states “I’ll work my month an’ I’ll take my fifty bucks an’ I’ll stay all night in some lousy cat house. Or I’ll set in some pool room till ever’body goes home. An’ then I’ll come back an’ work another month an’ I’ll have fifty bucks more.” Here John Steinbeck uses repetition to make it abundantly clear to the reader that George has forsaken his dream, and chosen to become the lonely farm worker he once felt empathy towards.
George doesn’t really have confidence in Lennie for instance on the ranch, George wouldn’t let Lennie talk because George didn’t want Lennie to miss getting the opportunity.

Because of lack of companionship, he often sits by himself alone and is left behind. Candy is friendly with Lennie and George even though he does not know them very well, "I 'd make a will an ' leave my share to you guys in case I kick off, 'cause I ain 't got no relatives or nothing…" (59) This quote shows that Candy is all alone because he had no one else to leave his money to. He is very depressed and has no desire to live: “I wisht somebody 'd shoot me..." (60). Also, he says, “I won’t have no place to go” (60) because he knows that he is old and useless with only one hand. Since his dog was shot, he feels that his fate is similar.
