Crooks admires the close, protective relationship that is shared by Lennie and George.  He says that he has never seen two guys travel together and look out for each other in this way. Unlike his feelings about fulfilling his own dreams, he admits that Lennie and George have a shot at obtaining their dream of owning land and being independent because they have each other, and Lennie and George are empowered because of this strong friendship. He eventually asks to become part of this dream of owning land because he is confident these two can make things happen.
