In chapter 2, Pony, Dally, and Johnny sneak into the Nightly Double drive-in. It's only 25 cents to get in if you aren't in a car; they have the money, but Dally just likes breaking the rules. The seats for people without cars are empty, except for two girls in the front.
In Chapter 3, Cherry and Marcia don't have a ride home, so they agree to let Two-Bit give them a ride to the West side of town, about 20 miles away. As they walk to Two-Bit's house, Pony sees that the girls are getting over thinking of them as just Greasers.
In Chapter 4, Ponyboy and Johnny are heading home through the park when they hear a car horn. They grab Ponyboy and dunk him in the fountain, holding him under so long he thinks he is drowning. Later Ponyboy wakes up on the ground beside the fountain.
