Lennie accidentely kills Curley's wife by breaking her neck, and then runs off to hide in the brush just as George told him to do. Curley and everyone else except George and Candy are hunting Lennie to kill him. George finds Lennie in the brush and kills him before Curley gets to him. The film ends with a shot of George and Lennie walking in the field during their time working before Lennie died.
Continuity mistake: After Curleys' wife dies, her body keeps changing position every time it is seen in the barn.
George: Guys like us that work on ranches are the loneliest guys in the world. They ain't got no family and they don't belong no place. They got nothin' to look ahead to.
Lennie: But not us George. Tell about us.
George: ...well, we ain't like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us. If them other guys gets in jail they can rot for all anybody cares.
Lennie: But not us, George, because I... see, I got you to look after me, but you got me to look after you.
