Storyboard Description


Storyboard Text

  • Johnny and Ponyboy both realize that Cherry wants to be a spy for the Greasers. This is surprising because Cherry is a Soc. Also, Cherry was Bob's (the dead Soc) girl. Another reason for why this may be surprising may be that Ponyboy and Johnny are apprehensive that Cherry will get in big trouble with the other Socs if she betrays them.
  • CHERRY!? The Soc!?
  • It is now clear that Johnny cares deeply about his parents. Although this is true, his parents do not care about him. Johnny does not use any defiance in his question though, which makes it clear to the reader that Johnny knows that his parents don't care about him.
  • I don't guess... I don't guess my parents are worried aboyt me or anything?
  • What does he expect? His parents don't even try to look at him!
  • Johnny, Dally, and Ponyboy realize that the church was on fire. This starts a whole new problem. Also, this is where Johnny and Ponyboy were living and were hiding out. At the moment, to Ponyboy and Johnny, they have no place to stay in and live in so that they don't get caught by the cops.
  • Oh Glory...
  • Johnny and Ponyboy both save all of the kids from the church fire. Both Ponyboy and Johnny are heroes to all of the kids, Jerry, and Jerry's wife.
  • Ponyboy finally confesses who he really is to Jerry. He says that he is a greaser, or a hood, and that his friends are both wanted criminals. Also, Ponyboy uses figurative language to say "a record with the fuzz a mile long' which is a hyperbole.
  • Greasers. You know, like hoods, JD's. Johnny is wanted for murder and Dallas has a record with the fuzz a mile long.
  • For about the first time in forever, Ponyboy sees Darry cry. Darry never cried, even when his parents had been killed. This is why Darry crying for Ponyboy is a major event in The Outsiders.
