Ponyboy is trying to walk away from the socs. They are trying to chase him down so they can jump him. He is very nervous and a little bit confused. Eventually he gets caught.
The boys are at the Drive-ins. They are talking to Cherry and Marcia. They are talking and calling them names which is making the girls very uncomfortable and upset. The girls are just trying to ignore them.
This scene is when Darry hit Ponyboy. Then Ponyboy got very upset and left. Pony then went and sat outside with his friend, and then ran three blocks away! After that Pony decided to come back, because he knew it wasn't right for Darry to hit him, but it was also very childish to run away.
