I didn't mean to! I didn't think! I forgot! That' all I hear out of you! Can't you think of anything?
Character vs. Self
Johnny... he's dead.
Ponyboy, what's the matter?
Character vs. Society
I went to sleep in the lot...
...afraid to call the police because something like that could get you two thrown in a boys' home so quick it'd make your head spin.
Hey, Ponyboy, where ya been?
This is the scene that leads up to Ponyboy running away with johnny, which then leads to Johnny killing Bob and them having to run away.
I said I didn't mean to...
Ponyboy didn't really believe that johnny was dead and he was having this conflict with himself in this scene. in his mind, he is saying "But he's not dead, a voice in my mind kept saying." (Hinton 152)
This is also leading up to Ponyboy running away. It is character vs society because soda and ponyboy could get thrown in a boys' home if they do something bad.
