While walking home from the movies alone, Ponyboy noticed a red Corvair trailing him. It stopped beside him and five socs got out. One of the socs pulled out a knife and asked if he needed a haircut and pinned him down. All of the sudden, Darry showed up and saved him.
Johnny, Ponyboy, and Dally got together before they went to the movie theatre. They went to the drugstore at the mall to joke around.They got cokes and blew the straws at the waitress and eyed things that were out in the open. Dally escaped with two packs of Kools hidden underneath his coat.
The blue mustang was coming down the road to pick up their girlfriends, Cherry and Marcia. The socs called the greasers bums and they got ready to fight. Ponyboy grabbed a broken bottle and Two-Bits grabbed a pocket knife. Cherry didn't like fights so she stopped them and said she'd ride with the socs before they got into trouble.
