He was beaten really badly by the socs and received a scar along his right cheek. I don't think he knows. He had gray eyes and a wide grin, and he couldn't stop making funny remarks to save his life. I just don't like 'em. Ponyboy is the youngest kid brother of Darry and Sodapop who all live together and look out for each other after their parents died.
We gotta get even with those Socs. Let's do it for Johnny, man. Pony was getting a fire started. He'd use it, too, if he ever got jumped again. E Hinton, changes from timid and shy to gallant and strong. He later meets the girls boy friends who take the girls away.
But what did it really solve? He was wielding a gun that wasn't loaded. The child of alcoholic, abusive parents, he is nervous and sensitive. When I get in a fight I want to stomp the other guy good. Johnny offered me some of his pop and I took it. We talked a little bit and he told me that Cherry was really pretty. Their lives are worth more than mine, they have more to live for.
Actually Cade is dating Brooke right now and so he doesn't care about anything else. The relationship between these two boys is very interdependent. Also, Johnny risked his own life getting Ponyboy out of the church before himself saving Pony's life and he saved a bunch of little kids. At the beginning of the story, Johnny was so hopeless that he was on the verge of committing suicide. This beating puts him almost over the edge; in fact, the Socs scared him so much that he even carries a switchblade in his pocket.
He craves family and finds it with the greasers. Unlike Johnny, his parents do not physically or verbally abuse him; however, they do something equally as harmful: They allow Bob to shirk responsibility for his own actions. She is always surrounded by Mustangs and easy breaks, but Cherry is convinced that not all greasers and socs are what they seem to be. His parents don't give a hoot what or where he is but his friends love him despite it all. Dally comes back a few days later after they been hiding and gives Ponyboy a note from Sodapop and treats Ponyboy and Johnny to a fast food place, as the two were basically starving. He always had a nervous, suspicious look in his eye. I think her name is Cherry.
In the end, Johnny remains gold forever. He had gotten a temple-to-cheek long gash scar by his eye, which he would have for the rest of his life. He watches out for everyone in the gang and is a sucker for Johnny and Ponyboy. When Dally came to visit, he confirmed that Johnny's parents had not even asked about him. Ponyboy and Johnny both thought Ponyboy was going to drown that night.
Johnny was scared of his own shadow after that. His parents have given in to him his whole life, and have never set any boundaries for him. Poor Johnny has a really rough life. You don't know what a few months in jail can do to you. I could tell Johnny kept eying Bob's hand.
I knew he totally liked me, and I loved him, but I was too nervous to ask him out, and he was too nervous to ask me out. There is enough of Dally to go around for everyone and no one can resist not even Cherry. It's clear something terrible will inevitably happen between the two gangs. Bob is at the top of the chain over everyone. Johnny was walking up to his house and I realized that people were screaming and hollering inside. And I decided I could tell people, beginning with my English teacher.
