One theme in The Outsiders is “friendship” this is shown all throughout the book and movie . One example of this theme is when Johnny killed Bob, who was a socs, to defend his friends. This occurs a lot with Johnny, who had very poor home life, for him it was all he had was friends. Another example was when Ponyboy ran away with Johnny to help him get away so he wouldn't be caught. This is a big deal because if Ponyboy is scene with Johnny then he will be accused too.

"Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold..." Those words were Johnny's last words before he passed on. Johnny was a person who everyone thought would live a bad, horrible life. He was often tortured by his parents, the Socials, and was to be left alone day by day. However, he has shown himself to the world that he will never be a pushover by people like the Socials and his parents, instead to shine as dazzling as a shooting star in the sky in the book Outsiders by S.E.

They overheard from one of the school instructors about the children inside and said that they had to save them. “I’ll get them, don’t worry!” coming from Ponyboy Curtis just as he was about to enter the church.

In the movie when they were driving and almost hit that cow but Ben saved everybody they stopped and slept on the side of the road and Radar and his girl did what they were going to do at prom right there on the side of the road for every car passing by could see them. Also Radars girlfriend didn’t go with them in the book she didn’t even know that radar was going to New York City. In my opinion John green should have made the movie too. The movie was good in some ways like Margo was played by Cara Delevingne. And they did get to go to graduation and Quentin actually did make it to prom.
Just a few nights ago i dropped a bag of flour, and the whole thing spilled everywhere. The inside of our wagon is still covered in the fine white powder. Paul became so cross with me that he hit right across the face, and it left a fine bruise too. My father was so shocked by his anger that he threatened to shoot Paul as he slept. Honestly, those two just can’t seem to like each other even an ounce.
