Of Mice and Men (1939)
George Milton: You had a cigarette and a drink and a look at a pretty dress, and it cost you fifteen bucks! You just shot a week's pay to walk on that red carpet!
Candy: A week's pay? Sure, but I worked weeks all my life. I don't remember none of them weeks, but this - nearly twenty years ago - I remember that.
Lennie: I wish we had some ketchup.
George: Whatever we ain't got, that's what you want!
George Milton: It ain't your fault, but look, if a fella steps on a round pebble and he falls down, breaks his neck, it ain't the pebble's fault, but the guy wouldn't a done it if the pebble hadn't been there.
Mae: Who busted your hand, Curley?
Curley: I told ya, I got it caught in a machine.
Mae: I saw that machine last night!
Curley: They told ya?
Mae: Why didn't you tell your old man, so he could can him?
Curley: The double crossin'...
Mae: I'll tell you why! Cause you were scared, if you'd talk, they'll talk too. You were scared you'd get the horse laugh... like I'm giving ya now! HA HA HA HA HA HA! Just a punk with a crippled hand! HA HA HA HA HA...
Curley: I ain't even gonna slug ya! I'm going upstairs and pack your junk. You're gettin' out of here! You and me are through!
Mae: ONE TWO! The old one-two! HA HA HA HA HA...
[laughter turns into sobbing]
George Milton: [speaking of Lennie] He ain't no cuckoo. He's dumb, but he ain't crazy.
Crooks: Come on in. You might as well. Everybody's coming in. Kinda like a race track.
Candy: Curly's like a lot of little guys. He hates big guys. Kinda like he's mad at em, 'cause he ain't a big guy. You've seen a lotta little guys, ain't ya? always spattin'
Candy: Seems to me like Curly's worse since he got married. Like he's sittin' on an ant hill.
