5.George gives Lennie another piece of fatherly advice: avoid Curley like the plague—unless Curley actually touches him, in which case, kick his butt.
8.He and George snark at each other a little, but no one whips out any roundhouse punches. Not yet, at least.
George and Lennie arrive at the new ranch.
In the bunkhouse, they meet an old guy named Candy. His name seems especially inappropriate since he is missing a hand, has bristly white whiskers, and an ancient dog that stinks.
Unlike most other characters in the book, Curley's wife has no name, unless you consider "tramp," "loo loo," and "jail-bait" to be names. In that case, this lady's got lots of names.
