Storyboard Text

  • Darry hits Ponyboy
  • Johnny kills Bob (Soc)
  • The Church Burns Down
  • Darry hitting Ponyboy is really what starts the whole thing and is part of the reason that Johnny dies. Ponyboy runs off and takes Johnny with him. This leads to Johnny's eventual death.  
  • Johnny Dies
  • This scene is important because Johnny killing Bob is what makes some of the Socs see that fighting is not worth it. It also semi-ruins Johnny's image as the gangs 'pet'. 
  • Dally Gets Himself Killed
  • The church burning down is a big part of the story because for once, the Greasers are seen as something other than hoods and Johnny is fatally injured. Ponyboy, Johnny and Dally are all seen as heroes for saving the kids and it helps them when the court case happens for the killing of Bob.
  • Randy Talks to Ponyboy
  • Johnny dying is a a big part of the story because it symbolises change and how it made the Greasers even more angry at the Socs and the rumble that happened afterwards was their way of letting all their anger out on the Socs. The Socs running away was because they too had lost a friend and there was no point in losing another.
  • Once Johnny dies, the gang deals with it in different ways. Ponyboy denies it and as we see, Dally blames himself because he was the one who told them to stay at the church. At this point, he doesn't care what happens to him and he knows pulling out his gun, even if he doesn't use it, is going to end his life but he does it anyway.
  • Randy coming to talk with Ponyboy symbolises that the war between the Greasers and the Socs is finally coming to a close. They've both lost friends and brothers from the fighting and they both realise that it isn't worth it. They haven't fully resolved their conflicts but they're making a start.
