People said he existed, but Jem and I had never seen him” (Harper Lee 10). This quote helps explain that Boo is locked up because Scout and Jem, as well as most people in town, have never seen Boo inside of the house or outside of the house. They also will not meet Boo because they are scared of him. During the story they explain that when something happens in the town, Boo is to blame. This quote helps explain some of the crimes or scary acts, “People said he went out at night when the moon was down, and peeped in windows… people’s chickens and household pets were found mutilated” (Harper Lee 10).
If we are looking at the contrasts between them you can notice that Dally is a tough guy would doesn’t really care about anything, but Johnny is a delicate and quite guy. He is very fragile, his is because he was jumped badly but a social gang called the ‘Socs’ who scarred him for life but also because of how bad his life is at home. He can stay away from home for long periods of time and they wouldn’t seem to care or even notice. Johnny is the one in the gang (The Greasers) that everyone looks out for and that keeps everyone to get along with each other but meanwhile, Dally was the meanest and toughest guy in the gang and the one needs the least amount of attention. Dally is one of the oldest, coldest and the one who got in most trouble with the cops out of the greasers whereas
In The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, Holden Caulfield often refers to the people around him as ¨phonies.¨ Although he uses this word to describe almost everyone he meets, Holden never refers to himself as a phony. In reality, Holden Caulfield himself is the epitome of phony. He is a pathological liar, and he often pretends to be something that he is not. Holden Caulfield is a phony because he often pretends to be a different person than who he really is.
Johnny encounters a truly unpleasant life all through the novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. Johnny's guardians constantly beat him up and disregard him. On top of that, he doesn't motivate enough to eat and is even attempting suicide, the greater part of that makes him the gang's pet. "If you can picture a little dark puppy that has been kicked too many times and is lost in a crowd of strangers, you'll have Johnny." Johnny was terrified of his own shadow after he was jumped by the Socs when he was sixteen.
A couple days later, Johnny dies, but tells Ponyboy "Stay gold Ponyboy". Dally; a couple hours later gotten killed by the police from the anger of Johnny's death. Days after both Johnny and Dally die, Pony realizes that they were important in his life and that he feels empty without them and they're advice and support. Pony now doesn't have any close friends where he can just talk to about things. Although he has his brothers, he doesn't usually have positive conversations with them and he is afraid that they might do something and mess a certain situation.
Despite Dally’s wish to keep Johnny safe, Johnny dies trying to save people from a fire in a church. After hearing about Johnny’s death Dally is devastated with grief and ends up getting killed by the police after stealing from a store. Darry says to Ponyboy, ”He’s just robbed a grocery store and the cops are after him.” (p. 153). There deaths are ironic because they both die trying to help someone else Johnny those in the fire and Dally in trying to help Johnny. If Dally had been close to others besides Johnny he would have been able to seek support and comfort from others perhaps allowing him to cope with Johnny’s death from the fire.
Similarly, both George Lopez and real fathers take critical backlash from their families. George Lopez grew up unaware of his father’s whereabouts, supposing that he was dead according to his mother’s word; therefore, every time Max, George’s son, mentions the void of his grandfather, George fabricates lies of him (Season two, Episode 1). He says, “He [George’s father] could handle any emergency,” and he says, “My dad loved the house to be filled with music.” Angie, George’s wife, criticizes George on this because Max might obtain the truth of the matter one day; thus, proving his
Darry, who is hard, firm and never grins at all, has a different idea of what good parenting is when it comes to Ponyboy. Many people believe, that Ponyboy, should go to the system, because his brother Darry has risked and has influenced him in bad ways. Darry, has influenced and risked Ponyboy, by letting him go out to the movies without any supervision, leaving the door wide open at their house for unwelcome and dangerous visitors, and putting him in hazardous situations, so that they gang
The children frequently question their father about the Radleys, especially Boo, the mysterious recluse from three doors down. When questioned, Atticus rarely tells Scout and Jem anything more than to stop tormenting Boo Radley, and not to be nosey. This happens at a point in the plot
The first example is Boo Radley. In the novel, Boo Radley isn’t seen until the very end but we hear about him throughout the entire novel. The whole Radley family suffers social prejudice because Boo hasn't been seen in years, and people start making rumors of what happened. According to the rumors, he is a scary guy that went crazy a while ago. But at the end of the novel, we see that he is a kind man that has been shut up his entire life and doesn’t like being in the spotlight (both literally and metaphorically).

At a young age Allen garnered the nickname ‘Red’, due to his deformed, red left arm. He was also abandoned by his parents because of it. No one could connect the Exorcist Allen with the nameless circus freak he once was. Defensive, bratty, rude, and even though he was secretly lonely and miserable, these same behaviors protected him – by driving others away. The abusive, cruel, petty monsters, and he had never known anything else.
