Curley started the fight. Curley beat up Lennie’s face but Lennie pretty much just crushed Curley’s hand. Lennie was smileing at some good memories of the soon to be farm and Curley thought that Lennie was mocking him so he threw a punch.I think that Curley deserved it. LEnnie deffintally won he shook up Curley runied his ego a little.

I think that Curley started the fight. Curley was apologizing to Slim and Lennie was smiling about the idea of the house and Curley thought that he was smiling that he had to apologize to Slim. I wasn’t surprised that Curley picked a fight with Lennie because he likes to pick fights with bigger guys. Lennie got beat up pretty bad but he broke Curley’s hand so I’d say Lennie won.

Curley started the fight. Curley was looking for his wife and when he came into the bunkhouse all the men were having a heated discussion and Candy made comment about wearing the glove with vaseline in it and Lennie laughed. Curley got all up in Lennie’s face and thay stated to fight. George told Lennie to blast Curley and he did so breaking nearly all the bones in Curley’s hand. I am pretty sure that Curley won. It scared me. kidding! I amglad that slim was nice about it.

Curley picked a fight with Lennie. Lennie was caught up on the idea of having his own ranch and was smiling, and Curley was in the middle of reprimanding him about it and got upset. They weren’t really fighting because Lennie didn’t know what to say. My reaction was that I really wanted Lennie to pound Curley, or someone else to stick up for him. I think that Lennie won the fight because even though he was bleeding, he broke Curley’s hand and he made Curley afraid of him. I agree with ‘doplato’ that the fight shook up Curley’s ego.

Comment by kligsfosho

After Slim and Curley came into the room after their argument in the barn, Curley was angry and was already trying to pick a fight. When Curley saw Lennie gazing off with a smile on his face he got mad and punched Lennie in the face. After Lennie started bleeding pretty bad and wasnt defending himself, George started yelling at Lennie to fight back. Once Lennie decided to fight back he grabbed Curleys wrist and wouldn’t let go. By the time he finally did let go Curley’s hand had a bunch of broken bones in it. Carlson and Slim packed Curley up in the wagon and went to get him help but Slim warned Curley not to tell his father. Slim was sticking up for Lennie and George. A of the guys in the room know now that Curley has been defeated.

curley started the fight and he got injured because he was stupid for trying to fight Lennie. Curley thought Lennie was laughing at him and challenged Lennie to fight. Curley will probably be a big baby now.

Comment by clgarland

Curley started it because he saw Lennie laughing and thought that he was laughing at him. Curley kept punching Lennie and Lennie looked over at George for support and George told Lennie to fight back. So then Lennie squeezed Curley’s hand and pretty much broke it so Lennie won the fight.

Curley started the fight.
Curley was punching Lennie in the face and then George told Lennie to fight back so Lennie grabbed Curley’s hand and broke almost every bone in his hand.
They weren’t fighting over anything Curley just wanted to fight Lennie because he was big.
Curley looking for Candy and thinking that she was with Slim, and Lennie laughing at something from before led up to this.
My reaction was that I was glad that Lennie faught back because I dont think that he should get taken advantage of like that.
Lennie won.

Comment by knwilliam

The fight was Curly’s fualt. Lennie did what George told him and didn’t fight back until George sadi to hit him back. The fight happened because Curly said something to im and Lennie talked back.

Comment by evanhouty

Curley was the one who started the fight against Lennie. Lennie went into the bunkhouse after trying to find Slim with his wife. This happend to be right after George, Lennie, and Candy were talking about buying a farm and Lennie was smiling. Curley thought Lennie was laughing at him and started to punch him and Lennie caught one of his punches and started to crush his hand. I was shocked that Curley went after a person who is mentally ill. I believe Lennie won the fight because he made Curley go to the doctor.

Comment by emearhart

Curley started the fight. Lennie wanted his own farm, and Curley argued with him about it. He punched lennie and ended up hurting his hand. They agreed not to tell anyone about it. I couldn’t believe Curley was fighting with someone who is mentally ill.

Comment by 10kmiller

Curley started the fight. Lennie didn’t fight back until George had told him to. They were fighting because Curley came into the bunk house mad because he couldn’t find his wife and Lennie was smiling because he was thinking about the farm that George and him were going to get. Curley was already mad because he thought that Slim and his wife were together. I thought that what Curley fighting George about was uncalled for. Lennie won the fight because he broke all the bones in Curley’s hand.

Comment by laurenxxs

The fight started when Curly saw lennie laughing. Curly thought he was laughing at him because everyone was makeing fun of him but Lennie was smiling over the rabbits. I think Curly had no reason to do this he was just looking for a way to make himself look tough. Lennie won the fight by crusing Curly’s hand.

Comment by jktubman

tubman – Good point! I think you’re right here.

Comment by Miss Fowler

I was wondering why curley even started to fight Lennie. I know its because of him smiling but he should have let lennie explain himself first. Even if Lennie was laughing at him he shouldnt have started to fight him because i wouldnt start with a guy whos got a couple feet on me no matter how strong i think i am. He shouldve just calmed down and talked to him

Curley

Curley came into the barn house and Lennie, George and Candy were just talking about the land and house they were going to buy and when Curley entered Lennie still had a smile on his face from the conversation and Curley thought that Lennie was laughing at him and stared a fight.

Well Curley was fighting with Lennie because he thought that Lennie was laughing at him.

While Lennie was kinda getting beat up by Curley George kept telling Lennie to fight back so Lennie listened to George’s command but when Lennie grabbed Curley’s hand he crushed it on accident.

Comment by jessicaxo

Well my reaction was why didn’t Lennie hit Curley when George was telling him to and why didn’tGeorge jump in to protect Lennie.

I think that Lennie won the fight because he broke Curley’s hand and i think Curley just sat on the floor stunned that someone beat him in a fight.

Comment by jessicaxo

Curley is the one that started the fight. Curley came in and was yelling and Lennie started to laugh and Curley thought he was laughing at him. But the reason Lennie was all giggly, was because he was thinking about the rabbits. Curley was fighting with Lennie because he thought he was laughing at him.

Comment by jessnick1992

Curley started the fight.
Curley came in yelling & Lennie was lauging & he thought he was lauhing at him. Lennie did not start to fight back until George told him to. During the fight Lennie broke all the bones in Curley’s hand. The reason they were fighting is that Curley thought Lennie was laughing at him & Lennie only fought back because George told him to. The events it led up to was Curley getting all the bones in his one hand borken. My reaction to it was shocked that Lennie was that strong, i mean i knew he was stong but not that strong. Lennie won the fight because Curely had to go to the hospital becsue Lennie broke his hand.

Comment by jjspencer

Curley started it

Lennie got punched in the face a few times, then
George told Lennie to hit him back so Lennie breaks his hand.

they were fighting because curley is a jerk and thought that Lennie was making fun of him by laughing.

I was very suprised that George let Lennie hit him after telling Lennie not to do a bad thing. I was kind of confused.

I think Lennie kicked butt because he broke curleys hand and he was on the ground practically crying.

Comment by trayyd

Lennie really won because he got a chance to prove himself

Comment by mudisfun10

curley started a fight with lennie because he was laughing. Lennie did not want to fight but when he did he recked Curley.

Comment by jdkeller

Curley started the fight with Lenny. Shortly earlier, Curley had come into the bunkhouse looking for his wife, and noticed that Slim was not their either. he stomped out assuming Slim and his wife were together. Curley and Slim return to the bunkhouse and are having an argument about Curley’s repeated assumptions of an affair between the two. Curley looks over at Lennie, who is smiling about the thoughts of the little house he and George are going to get, and Curley assumes Lenny is laughing at him. he yells at Lenny to get up and starts beating him, driving him back to the wall. Lenny yells to George to make him stop, and George screams back “Get him, Lenny! Fight back!” Lennie suddenly intercepts Curley’s next punch with his hand and begins to squeeze. He forces Curley onto a table and Curley begins to scream in fear and pain “Get him off of me!” George and Slim rush over to Lennie and begin slapping him in the face to get him to stop, but not before Lennie breaks several (if not many) bones in his hand. Lenny lets go and runs to his bunk crying “you told me to George! i didnt want to hurt him!” Slim and several others comfort Lennie letting him know it wasnt his fault. Slim then tells Curley the story is he got his hand caught in a machine, and he is not to tell the truth about what happened. Curley who is barely conscious from the pain and shock, agrees. Slim and the men then take Curley into town to see the doctor.
