Ponyboy gets put to the ground and gets a knife pulled on him, and the knife cuts his cheek. He doesn't get hurt too badly because his gang (the Greasers) saves him.
In Chapter 2 a big chunk of the chapter is at the drive ins called Dingo. Ponyboy Dally, and Johnny get in without paying and Dally starts bugging the two girls in front of them. They get annoyed at Dally and he leaves to get a coke for the girls that's when Ponyboy and Johnny start talking to the girls and they start to get to know the girls. Dally comes back and gives the cokes to Cherry and Marcia, and Cherry throws the coke at Dally and Johnny stands up for Cherry and Marcia.
After the drive ins they start to walk home because they didn't bring a car and the two girls get picked up by their boyfriends. Ponyboy and Johnny go to look at the stars and they both fall asleep. they wake up and Ponyboy realises that he missed curfew and he runs back home. He goes inside and Darry gets mad that he came home so late and he hits Ponyboy. Ponyboy then goes back to Johnny who is still outside and cries.
