In my book, the 5th page of chapter 4 has a discussion between Crooks and Lennie. Crooks encourages Lennie that since George is out with the guys something could happen to him. George could get hurt or choose not to come back. This makes Lennie mad:

Suddenly Lennie's eyes centered and grew quiet, and mad. He walked dangerously toward Crooks. "Who hurt George?" he demanded.

A true and loyal friend will always be ready to defend their friend.

Another loyalty quote occurs in the first chapter when Lennie breaks in while George is telling how it's going to be:

"... because I got you to look after me, and you got me to look after you, and that's why."

The rest of the quotes in chapter one significantly demonstrate George's loyalty to Lennie because he is doing most of the talking.
