Come on bro, we will get through this situaOons. Hang in there ‘lil’ man.I’m ﬁne, I guess I was just worn out from the rumble. Plus, I was shocked about Johnny’s death and Dally’s shooOng.

I know that Bob tried to kill you and you guys thought of him like a bad person, but he was sOll my boyfriend and I just can’t go see the one who killed my Bob. I’m really sorry Pony.Never mind...I thought that this would happen. Lets face it, you don’t want to be seen with us greasers. And that is a fact.No Pony, it isn’t that. I’m really sorry...I just can’t. Pony please just forgive me!Whatever...see you around.Ah man, am I sore...Darry and Soda, sorry for running oﬀ like that and then ge^ng me and Johnny into this kind of mess. Cause of me Johnny might die.No. I’m the one who should be sorry Ponyboy...and for Johnny, well he’ll ﬁght through this. You go and make sure he’s okay, and don’t worry.Don’t menOon it, I’m just glad your okay Pony...and hopefully Johnny will be too.He will be ﬁne. HE IS FINE.Well, lets hope for the best.Pony, I need him to ﬁght through this too. We all need Johnny in our lives. We wouldn’t be able to live life with out him, and I mean it, but don’t get your hopes up Ponyboy, he’s not looking too hot. Come on Dally, the boy has hope, don’t ruin it for him. Not now.Stop...now. Johnnycake is gonna pull through...I just know it. I know it.
Johnny just killed a Soc, Bob I think was his name. Johnny: I know that you wouldn’t do it if I wasn’t in danger. Thanks for having my backAnyOme, thats what best friends are for... Hey Pony, I was thinking and we should turn ourselves in. We will be put in jail but its the right thing to do.I don’t know what the right thing to do is right now.NO! Keep yourselves out of trouble. Now, you don’t want to be put in jail, that stuﬀ is hard. There will be no turning in...am I understood?Darry’s right. Jail hardens your heart. And just a liQle while in prison your emoOons are wiped clean...forever. Don’t do it...or you will regret it.Okay okay, I get it.Yea, I hear ya. We won’t turn ourselves in, I promise.Good, now drop it.Those Socs are messed up, messed up I tell you. Johnny aint did anything wrong but just cuz he’s a greaser, they beat the life ouQa him. They got no right to do that to any of us, especially Johnnycake.I hate em Socs. They got nothin on us, nothin I tell ya.Don’t bring it up again Pony, you hear me?Forget about it Pony, its in the past...just forget about it
It’s ﬁne...really. No it aint Johnny. Pony, you bring that up again and I beat the life ouQa you, YOU HEAR? Yea, I hear... Dally calm down and shut yo trap. Pony just leave it at rest...its over! This is ridiculous and not worth ﬁghOng over. End of conversaOon. You know what Socs? I got jumped by your gang today...and I have something to say to you smart rich people. Just cuz we all greasers it aint mean that you have to treat us like trash. We aint the bate of yall so go ﬁnd others to torture and stay oﬀ of our land. Cuz us greasers are always sOcking together...right guys? By the way thanks for today Soda.No prob bro...just be careful next Ome.I hate those ﬁlthy Socs. Self defense Ponyboy. Self defense.Yea, be like me no one can hurt you. Be like me, people like those Socs can’t get to you. Be strong Ponyboy, don’t be weak.Just crack em boQle and beat those punks to the death. HA! You would never do that Ponyboy, not even if your life depended on it.Dally: I’m not you...don’t you understand? I will never be like you. I break. I get hurt. Those Socs get to me someOmes.Two Bit: You are right. I would never use a cracked boQle to kill someone, not even a Socs.You aite man?I’m ﬁne, just mad about the whole deal. Its messed up.Man, Ponyboy you got to use your head. I’m not sending you to school for nothing, use your brain, dang it!Okay okay, sorry it won’t happen again.
