After going to a movie, Ponyboy was walking home alone, when he got jumped by some Socs.
Are you okay?
Luckily though, his gang shows up just in time to save him.
Leave them alone Dally...
Leave us alone!
Later on, Pony takes a trip to the drive-in with Dally and Johnny, and they meet two Soc girls, Cherry and Marcia.
You guys can protect us.
After they've had enough of Dally's comments, Johnny sticks up for the girls, causing Dally to storm off. A little while after, Two-Bit shows up, and Ponyboy gets the chance to talk to Cherry. While talking to her, he learns a lot about the Socs.
The two girls head home with their boyfriends, and Ponyboy and Johnny accidentally fall asleep.
He hit me...
The two boys wake up and Pony heads home to a very worried brother. Darry yells at Pony, causing him to yell back, resulting in Pony getting hit by Dally, and him running off.
