  • Ponyboy Leaves the Movies
  • Paul NewmanA ride home
  • Ponyboy’s Appearance
  • I am part of a gang; The Greasers, our trademark is our long, greasy hair and our leather jackets.
  • West Side of Town
  • They wear fancy madras shirts and use fancy sports cars.
  • The Socials (or Socs) are the rich kids in town. They live in the west side an are our enemy.
  • Quote:‘When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I only had two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home’.
  • Red Corvair trails Ponyboy
  • Quote:‘My hair is longer than a lot of boys wear theirs, squared off in back and long in front and sides, but I am a greaser and most of my neighbourhood rarely bothers to get a haircut.’
  • Five Socs attack Ponyboy
  • Quote:‘I’m not sure how you spell it but it’s the abbreviation for the Socials, the jet set, the West-side rich kids. It’s like the term greaser, which is used to class all us boys.’
  • The Greasers save Ponyboy
  • Quote: ‘-When I spotted that red Corvair trailing me. I was almost two blocks from home then, so I started walking a little faster
  • Quote: ‘It occurred to me then that they could kill me. I went wild. Someone put his hand over my mouth, and I bit it as hard as Icould, tasting the blood running through my teeth. I heard a muttered curse and gotslugged again, and they were stuffing a handkerchief in my mouth.’
  • Quote:‘Then there were shouts and the pounding of feet, and the Socs jumped up and left. People were jumping over me and running by me and I was too dazed to figure it out. Then someone had me under the armpits and was hauling me to my feet. It was Darry.’
