Ponyboy, you need to be more careful arround here. Remember your best friend Johnny Has been hurt too. The socs hate us.
Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold...
Ponyboy comes out of the movies when a gang of rich boys called the socs try to jump him. Luckily, his older brothers Darry, Sodapop and the rest of the gang comes to help him. They are called the greasers, poor and have long hair. The socs and greasers are rival gangs.
Ponyboy and his best friend Johnny go to the movies and meet Marcia, a nice soc girl. Later they are jumped by the main soc Bob, and his friends, so Johnny kills him out of self defense, than run away. A greaser, Darry helps them run away and stay in an old abandoned church. Later the church starts on fire, Dally helps them escape, but Johnny gets really hurt.
Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally are in the hospital recovering. Ponyboy ends up being ok, but he is sick and has some burns. Pony boy is reunited with his brothers. That night there is a big rumble between the socs and greasers, Ponyboy and Dally fight in it. The greasers win, but when Dally and Ponyboy visit Johnny’s in the hospital, Johnny dies.
You dig ok baby!
Dally is so depressed be Johnnys death, the he goes and robs a supermarket, and the police shoot and kill him. After this the greasers take a step back and lay low. Ponyboy is still sick and still needs so go to court about Bob's murder.
Ponyboy gets a little better, and goes to the the court case with Darry, Sodapop, Two-Bit, Steve, and some of the socs. They charge Johnny with manslaughter, and don't press any charges against Ponyboy so he can stay with his brothers. After a while POnyboy has to go back to school, and write a paper, which ends up being this entire story.
I'm innocent now! Everything van return back to normal.
My favorite part is when Johnny, Ponyboy, and Dally are at the movies with Marcia and Cherry. It is cool how Cherry reacts to Dallas words and actions, she stands up for herself and isn't afraid. It was also interesting how easy and quick it was for Cherry to trust Ponyboy and Johnny.
