While Ponyboy is walking home, he gets jumped by the Socs. He doesn't have anything to use to fight them off, but a glass bottle is near him. One Soc pulled out a knife on him and said, "Need a haircut greaser?" Ponyboy got to his knees and couldn't do anything about it, so the Socs got him.
After sneeking into the drive-in, Dally finds some Socs there. The Socs are girls and do not appreciate Dally. Dally starts to talk dirty to them and embarrass them. The girls are agitated and want Dally to go away.
Darry is very angry at Ponyboy for returning home late. Pony and Johnny were out at the movie theater, but they fell asleep in the parking lot. Darry gets so mad at Ponyboy that he smakes him as hard as he could. Pony gets smashed into the door, all up in tears from Darry's shouting.
