Ponyboy and Johnny offer to walk the girls home, but along the way, the girls' boyfriends reappear and threaten to fight the greasers. Cherry stops the fight from happening, and the girls leave with their boyfriends.
  • Pony and Johnny go to a vacant lot to hang out before heading home where they fall asleep. When Johnny wakes Pony up it's 2 a.m, way past his curfew. Pony runs home and Darry is waiting up.
