Ponyboy just came to him in the middle of night saying how he was running away, and Johnny just went with it. Another time it shows friendship in the book, is when they run into the group of socs at the park and Bob tries to drown Ponyboy. Johnny comes and helps Ponyboy by stabbing Bob, accidentally killing him. Johnny could have just left Ponyboy, but Ponyboy is one of his friends, and Johnny couldn’t just leave him. So, he got Bob off of Ponyboy by stabbing him.
In the book Greaser lived on the east side, and Socs lived on the west side. The movie says the Greaser live in the south, and Socs live in the north. During the book Ponyboy takes a lot of medicine before the rumble, but the movie he is fine, and is not sick. After the rumble in the book Ponyboy got really sick, and delirious, but in the movie after the rumble he is just all banged up. A major detail I found was during the movie Dally get shot by the police, but in the book he takes a gun, and kills himself.
Johnny was using the blade as a form of self defence. “I had to .They were drowning you , Pony . They might of killed you. And they had a blade … They were going to beat me up” ( Hinton page 57 ). Johnny did not want his friend to be hurt and he didn 't want himself to get hurt in the process .After they actually realized that Bob had died they went to go see
‘Lennie begged, “Le 's do it now. Le 's get that place now.”’ George concurs, places the Luger on the back of Lennie’s head, and shoots him. One of the most controversial aspects of George Steinbeck 's novel Of Mice and Men, was the death of Lennie by his friend’s hands. Many believe that George murdered him in Lennie’s best interest, yet many others believe that George was being selfish and with his act, removed the burden of Lennie. However, George was completely justified in murdering Lennie as he had no other choice if he wanted what’s best for his friend and the world at large.
The Outsiders by DOMINIK O’NEAL In the book “The Outsiders”, Ponyboy goes through a lot. From being sick to watching people die. Ponyboy is a Greaser but he isn’t like the rest of the Greasers. He would rather watch a movie or read a book than go to a rumble like the rest of the Greasers. After what Ponyboy goes thru in this book, you shouldn’t be surprised if he has changed later as a person.
A boy named Johnny in the book The Outsiders By SE Hinton is mistreated by his parents. They do not set boundaries for him and in result he makes bad choices. In the book Johnny makes a decision to run away from home into the unknown eventually leading to Johnny killing a boy named Bob. If Johnny had more boundaries he may have stayed safe and not killed Bob. Another reason that boundaries are important, in the book The Outsiders.
In S.E. Hinton’s novel, the Outsiders, Johnny shows his true bravery when the Socs try to drown ponyboy in a fountain for revenge. Pony struggled to breathe, but only made it worse, and eventually, blacked out; when he came to “‘I killed him’” Johnny said slowly, “‘I killed that boy’” was the first thing he heard. Johnny had been attacked by the same people once before, but never again, and this time he could defend himself. The only problem would be the police, because the Socs would say differently than self-defense.
He could have done great things in his life instead of stealing and being rude. But he chose not too. Sadly, after all the mess happened when Johnny died, he decided to go back to robbing. Later that day he was chased down by the cops all the way back to his house. He was sad and ready to die.
Pony would have drowned because Bob was holding him under the fountain till pony blacked out. So Johnny stepped in and killed Bob with his pocket knife so Pony could live. This shows how much Pony ment to Johnny and that Johnny was willing to do anything to keep Pony alive even if that meant killing someone for him. Which he was more willing to do because this man Bob brutally beat Johnny earlier in this story and left him for dead. Also on this page is when Pony and Johnny had to discuss what they had to do and that was run away and even though Pony didn 't do anything wrong he was still willing to support Johnny and run away with him.
Two friends of mine had died that night: one a hero, the other a hoodlum. But I remembered Dally pulling Johnny through the window of the burning church; Dally giving us his gun, although it could mean jail for him; Dally risking his life for us, trying to keep Johnny out of trouble. And now he was a dead juvenile delinquent and there wouldn't be any editorials in his favor” (154) When ponyboy and johnny needed help the most they went to dally and dally selflessly sacrificed everything he had he just gave it to Ponyboy and Johnny
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.
For example texting and driving, you choose to text or reply back and in most cases it caused deaths of not only you but other people involved. In the story Ponyboy decided to go into the abandoned church, which was on fire, to help get the kids stuck inside get out, Johnny chose to follow and help. Right before Johnny was exiting the church a piece of timber fell on his back which caused his back to be broken and he was burned severely. Johnny ended up not making it and in his letter he said “Listen, I don’t mind dying now. It’s worth it.
