Curley Heeds Slim's Warning


Slim smiled wryly. He knelt down beside Curley. "You got your senses in hand enough to listen?" he asked. Curley nodded. "Well, then listen," Slim went on. "I think you got your han' caught in a machine. If you don't tell nobody what happened, we ain't going to. But you jus' tell an' try to get this guy canned and we'll tell ever'body, an' then will you get the laugh."

What is the BEST indication that Curley will heed the warning above?


Curley is afraid of Slim and does not want to end up in a fight with him.


Curley is afraid Lennie will get angry again and crush his other hand.


Curley is very concerned with his reputation and does not want to be a laughingstock.


Curley is afraid the boss will fire him if he knows he can't handle the workers.


Curley already has a difficult time keeping his wife's attention and he does not want her to leave him.
