Darry’s job and responsibilities as a fill-in parent
I have two brothers, the youngest one is Ponyboy and the one in the middle is Sodapop. I’m the oldest out of them two, I’m the young parent for them. I like to work out a lot and I dropped out of school because I need to help and support my brothers, after our parents died. That’s what my parents told me to do for them, if they would ever die or some happen to them. Everything has changed since that happened, one of the things that changed the most was me, because now I gotta take care of them and mostly Ponyboy because he’s too young and I have to get him out of trouble. We belong to a gang, in which we treat each other as a family, people call us “Greasers”. We’re simple people and we dress normal. There’s another gang called “Socs”. The Socs are people …show more content…
Everyone was sad after Johnny’s death, but mostly Ponyboy and Dally. Later that day we had to go to a rumble, which it would be greasers against some Socs. We won, but some of us got hurt, especially dally. Dally couldn’t stop thinking about Johnny’s death, it hurt him a lot because he loved him as a brother. Dally didn’t wanna live any longer because the only thing he really loved was Johnny and that was gone already so he said “it wasn’t worth to live any longer”. After the rumble, Dally had a unloaded gun in his pocket, we let him alone and went home. Dally was walking down a lamppost, he pulled out a gun and a cop saw him, the cop was trying to arrest him, but as soon as the cop saw the gun he shot dally. Later that night, we found out that he had died and police had taken the body already. After that happened, Sodapop, Ponyboy, and I talk about what was happening and Sodapop told us not to fight anymore because that hurts him, because we only have each other and we had to take care and love each other. We all agree and well our relationship between us is better than
“We’re all we’ve got left. We ought to be able to stick together against everything. If we don’t have eachother, we don’t have anything.” The quote is significant by connecting to an Essential question because Ponyboy and Darry’s relationship has been strained since their partners died and Darry became responsible for his little
In the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Ponyboy Curtis, a member of a gang called the “greasers” is leaving the movie theater when a group of Socs, short for social, jumps him and Two-Bit along with Johnny while walking Cherry and Marcia home. The two girls agreed to go with them if they don’t fight. Ponyboy and Johnny get to the lot and fall asleep, and don’t wake until 2 o’clock in the morning. When Ponyboy gets home his brothers, Sodapop and Darry, are very worried. Darry and Pony get in a fight and Soda tries to stand up for Pony, but Darry doesn’t like it.
We all know that life is not fair. Ponyboy parents died in a car accident. From there on, he is having a hard time dealing with it. That’s why him and his brothers need to stick together. Also, they are having economic problems that cast them as greasers, and the death of his friends.
Dally is not strong mentally (when he couldn’t let Johnny go), he really does not do good deeds, and he does not care about any other people than only Johnny, and he’s rude to others and bad at using words. A quotation that supports my statement is, “What for? Get back in here before I beat your head in.” (p.90) This quotation supports my statement because Dally said this to Ponyboy when he hopped off the car and said to see what the deal is when he saw the old church on fire, it proves that Dally does not care about other stuff that does not involve him and that he’s rude to others and using
He didn’t care, after finding out that johnny has died he goes crazy and robs a store. As he is running out he gets shot in his lower abdomen but still runs off. He calls Pony, Steve, Two-bit, Darry, and Soda, when they get to the vacant lot where he was surrounded by policemen, he pulled out an unloaded gun, he wanted to die that 's why he did it, he was gunned down by the police. Dally got what he wanted and dying was what he wanted after Johnny died, he died a hoodlum… ‘“Dally didn 't die a hero, he died violent, violent, and desperate. Like we knew he
It is understandable that sending Ponyboy and Sodapop to a Boys Home might be beneficial. Everyday is a struggle for the brothers, and the world is, indeed, dangerous. But, on the other hand, Darry is perfectly capable of providing a
This shows how he gained back his self-confidence and his ability to stand up for himself. Johnny finally found his acceptance from Dally when Dally said, “We’re all so proud of you” (148). When Dally said that Ponyboy noticed Johnny’s eyes glowing, “Dally was proud of him... That was all he ever wanted” (148). In the letter he wrote to Ponyboy, “It’s worth saving those kids...
Darry, Soda, and Pony are all waiting in the hospital to hear news of Dally and Johnny. They are bombarded with reporters, and Darry finally gets them to be left alone because Pony wasn 't’ feeling well. Pony takes a nap on Darry’s lap, and then the doctor finally came with news of Johnny and Dally. Dally would be good to go in a few days after his burns are taken care of, meanwhile Johnny is in critical condition, with not a great chance of making it out of there. On the way home, Pony falls asleep in the car and end up sleeping until the morning when Two-bit and Steve came over.
Then there 's the Greasers, who live poorly and get blamed for most of the things that go down in the city. Ponyboy, and Johnny, two Greasers, that at first, clang to the fact that they hated Socs. All they wanted to do was fight the other gang to look tough and earn respect. In the beginning of the story, Ponyboy wishes he looked tough.
Throughout the novel, characters serve and give of themselves for each other in order to protect the ones they love. Darry makes these kind of sacrifices for his brothers. Later, Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally risk their lives trying to save each other. The
Ponyboy’s parents died in a car crash leaving his oldest brother Darrel also known as Darry to take care of his two younger brothers. The middle brother Sodapop is always trying to keep Darry and Ponyboy from fighting. Darry has become more of a parent figure in in Ponyboys life causing a lot of tension between the two. Some of the other main characters are Johnny, Two-Bit, Dallas, and Steve. They are all Greasres and are coincided a gang but just think of each other as friends.
Before the rumble, Ponyboy realized the difference between his gang and the Socs. The greasers weren’t just a gang; they had a strong connection. The Socs were just a gang; they had no compassion, no love. Dally killed himself because of Johnny’s death but Randy hid his feelings not wanting to show them; his reputation mattered more. “That was the difference between his gang and ours- they had a leader and were
Darry then decided to step up and “come of age” to try to be a father like figure for Ponyboy. Ponyboy doesn’t seem to think that Darry cares for him because of the way Darry treats Ponyboy so Ponyboy turns to Sodapop more, “Sodapop is different from anybody; he understands everything...almost. Like he 's never hollering at me all the time the way Darry is, treating me like I’m six instead of fourteen,” (#2). This shows that Ponyboy is annoyed of Darry 's strict father-like figure because Darry is always telling Ponyboy what to do instead of being their for him. But Darry’s strict Father-like figure isn 't so bad, it did do some good…..
Love - an intense feeling of deep affection. Love is an emotion shown in many romantic or family relationships as well as friendships. Love is shown frequently throughout the entirety of the book The Outsiders. For example, Dally is an extremely aggressive and audacious person, but he also shows immense love towards Johnny. Sodapop is a fun-loving, carefree high-school dropout, but he is understanding and shows love to both of his brothers by seeing both sides of an argument.
Crashing waves on a beach with a magnificent sunset in the background, a picture perfect scene for a summer romance. The magic mood is quickly turned gloomy by the sweet Australian accent of Sandy Olsson exchanging her goodbyes with her summer love, Danny Zuko. The opening scene of Grease may seem [depressing] but it sets up for one of the most interesting love stories put to film. Grease is a movie with great musical numbers accompanied with wonderfully executed dance routines and an unforgettable plot. Although there are questionable incidents throughout, it will always be classic.
