What does "all the phrases" mean?

Haha. Nebulous, I like that word.

Anyway. Coco is right. Your question is vague. And "live off the fatta the land" is a common phrase. Probably the most common. If the whole book were sheetmusic, that phrase would be the repeated tune.

Ha, sorry, just got back from orchestra.

If your teacher is looking for insight, then you could say that that phrase represents the dream that George and Lennie are striving for, and use as a security blanket during their hard times, which, as you know, are pretty non-ending.
