Storyboard Text

  • Johnny and Ponyboy are at the park late at night, cooling off, until a "blue Mustang ... [is] circling the park slowly" (Hinton 47). The car holds a group of five drunk Socs looking to start trouble. They've found it.
  • We can't run. It's too late.
  • '"Oh, glory... this is all I need to top off a perfect night."' (47).
  • After exchanging insults, Bob, one of the Socs, has an idea. The Socs attempt to drown Ponyboy in a fountain after they tell him to "take a bath."
  • AAAGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!
  • '"You could use a bath, greaser. And a good working over. And we've got all night to do it. Give the kid a bath, David."' (49).
  • Johnny intervenes when he stabs Bob with his switchblade. Johnny acts eerily calm and stoic when Bob lies dead on the cement from the stab wound. The other four Socs have run away in fear. Ponyboy is saved.
  • Johnny and Sodapop go to Buck's place and find Dally. Dally listens to Johnny's dilemma and knows what to do. According to Sodapop, that was surprising considering that Dally, to him, is a scary delinquent. "He [hands them]... a gun and a roll of bills" (53).
  • Ooh.
  •  "'...For Pete's sake, Johnny, don't point the thing at me. Here's fifty bucks. That's all I could get out of Merril tonight. He's blowin' his loot from that last race."' (53).
  • Dally and Sodapop stealthily board a boxcar headed towards Windixville to escape. Sodapop falls asleep during the ride.
  • Sodapop and Johnny listen to Dally and find the church they're looking for, which is on top of Jay Mountain. It's worn down and abandoned, but it is inviting to the two of them. They fall asleep once they enter it.
  • "But this church gave me a kind of creepy feeling. What do you call it? Premonition?" (58).
