Mae: Thanks for sending the big guy out. I gotta talk to you.
Slim: You got nothing to say to me.
Mae: Please, Slim. I gotta talk to somebody or I'll go crazy. Please let me. I ain't meant to live like this. I'd leave this place only I got no money. My Mother won't take me back. I only married Curley 'cause I wanted to get away from her. Maybe I oughtn't a be saying this but I don't like Curley.
Mae, Slim: No you oughtn't. You oughtn't a be here. You oughtn't a talk to me or to any guy on the ranch. Go on back to the house where you belong. I don't want to listen to your troubles. You got no troubles except what you bring on yourself. Go on, lady.
Mae: [She cries as he moves away]
Slim: [to himself] Poor kid. I should'a let her talk.

Slim: Carlson's right, Candy. That poor dog ain't no good to himself. I wish somebody'd shoot me when I get old and crippled.
Candy: [choked up] Maybe it would hurt him. I don't mind taking care of him.
Carlson: He'd be better off dead. The way I'd shoot him he wouldn't feel nothin'.
