The full of experience always makes him to be a rational person. Pony boy start to want to the fight between Socs and Greasers to stop, here are basically three reasons that why he thinks so: They got psychological damage, it cause the death of his friends, and their gangs are very dangerous. First of all, one of Pony boy’s changes throughout the novel is influenced by fighting. Johnny was for self-defense, so he killed Bob. This passage in the novel shows us the psychological change of Pony boy : “A panic was rising in me as I listened to Johnny’s quiet voice go on and on ‘Johnny!’ I nearly screamed.
Here both Johnny and Ponyboy go back in to save the children. Johnny is very badly injured in the process and breaks his back.

They were drowning you, Pony. They might have killed you” (p. 57). Johnny had no choice because the Socs were drunk and Pony was at the point of almost dying. Following this, when Johnny took out his switchblade and killed Bob, blood was everywhere. For instance, “I killed him,” he said slowly.
One moment in particular when Johnny and Ponyboy were walking these two social girls to a friends house to drive them home. On the way over there they find the girls drunken boyfriends and the girls are forced to go with them. When the girls go behind them the guys go and start drowning Ponyboy until he goes unconscious.

He was sad because he thought that Joetta had died when the bomb blew up
16, the jury had men dressed in the Cunningham’s formal wear, hinting that the men whom tried to kill the defendant Tom the night before, was in the jury. This just further proves my thoughts, because those that hate you, and or dislike you, will judge you with false accusations. Like Atticus( Scouts father) had once said “the court is as equal as its jury”. Bias can cause many uproars in the court, but a lack of evidence can cause the case to become confusing. Generally evidence is what sets the difference between a wide open case and a closed off one.
He flailed, then began to disintegrate.” On the way to Half-Blood Hill with Grover and his Mom, they all encounter the Minotaur on their tail.

Perhaps George got tired of Lennie and took his life out of anger as his job and dream of sharing a farm with Lennie became impossible, or maybe George had had enough and killed Lennie because “(…) he [Lennie] gets in trouble alla time because he’s so God damn dumb.” (OMM, 42). On the contrary, after Lennie had killed Curley’s wife George knew what Curley’s lynch mob would come for Lennie and make his death painful by “(…) shoot[ing] the guts outa that big bastard” (OMM, 96-97). George simply helped Lennie the only way he knew how, by taking his life quickly after telling him what he wanted to
In the moment, Ponyboy was being drowned by a couple of Socs. Johnny quickly reacted and killed Bob who was holding Ponyboy 's head. With the help of their friend Dally, they leave the city and go to a church. Dally comes to tell them that there will be all out brawl without any weapons. Johnny decides to turn himself in because he doesn 't want Ponyboy to get to any troubleWhen they return the church is on fire and there are kids trapped inside.
Another similarity is that Ponyboy 's parents were killed in an automobile accident. In both the movie and the book is the heroic attribute of both Johnny and Ponyboy saving those kids in the burning church. Another thing that is the same is that after the rumble Dally and Ponyboy go and see Johnny, and after he dies, Dally goes and robs a store and is then shot down by the police. Some discrepancies between the book and the movie are that in the movie it left out a copious amount of Ponyboy being sick at the end, after Dally was killed. Another difference is that in the movie Darry pushed Ponyboy where as in the book he slapped him, right before Ponyboy and Johnny ran away.

Dally escapes from the hospital to fight in the rumble, and the Greasers win.

Ponyboy yells at Darry and he turns and Slaps Pony so hard he falls to the floor (Hinton 50).
“When I stepped out into bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house I had two things on my mind” (Hinton 1) marks the beginning of a memorable quest and the turning point in the nature of our young protagonist. The Outsiders describes the peak of the continuous conflict between two rival gangs in the 1960’s, the Greasers and the Socials (nicknamed Socs), developed based off of economic status and personal expression. Though the main conflict seems to be between these two rival cliques, the true conflict lies internally within our quester Ponyboy Curtis who must decide between whether he should stand along his family and friends or remain on the outside. S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders apprises the quest of Ponyboy Curtis’s road to
