Conflict: Greasers vs. Socs
The church is a place where many of the book's main events take place.
Randy is an important character in changing Ponyboy's perspective on the Socs as a whole. When Randy talks to Ponyboy in his car he says "people get hurt in rumbles, maybe killed. I'm sick of it because it doesn't do any good." (116-117). This shows Pony that not all Socs hate greasers and that some of them see both sides of the story. Also, when Pony leaves the car Randy says "Thanks, grease", but then corrects himself and says "I didn't mean that. I mean, thanks, kid." (117). This shows that he cares enough about Ponyboy's feelings that he is conscious of his use of a slang term for a greaser.
Ponyboy's feelings about the conflict between the greasers and Socs changes throughout the story. At first, he sees them only as an enemy when he says "No rival gang. Only Socs."(11). He also assumes that they have perfect lives when he says "Man, if I had worries like that I'd consider myself lucky." (36). This is important because it shows how he has a one-sided view of the Socs
