16 M Slide Table of Contents Hinton, S. E. The Outsiders. New York: Scholastic, 2003. Print. Citations A stands for A's. Darry expects Ponyboy to make A's and wanted to "make sure they stayed A's". (Hinton 13) "If I brought home B's, he wanted A's, and if I got A's, he wanted to make sure they stayed A's." (Hinton 13) Johnny killed Bob by stabbing him when he tried to drown Ponyboy for talking to Cherry Valence. "Bob shook his head, smiling slowly. 'You could use a bath greaser.'" (Hinton 55) "... Then I saw Johnny. He was sitting next to me, one elbow on his knee, and staring straight ahead. He was a strange greenish-white and his eyes were huger than I'd ever seen them. 'I killied him,' he said slowly. 'I killed that boy.'" (Hinton 56) Cigarettes Darry Curtis The East Side is where the "greasers" live and the West side is where the "Socs" live. "It's like the term "greaser", which is used to class all us boys on the East Side." (Hinton 2) The church that Johnny and Ponyboy hid in for a week caught on fire while they went to Dairy Queen.
"'Oh glory!' he whispered. The church was on fire." (Hinton 90) Greasers "... I am a greaser and most of my neighborhood rarely bothers to get a haircut." (Hinton 1) The Socs were more of the high-class group of people. They were rich and luxurious compared to the greasers.
"You could tell that by the way she said it that her idea of a good time was probably high-class."
(Hinton 27) Independent "...his mother ignored him... He would have run away a million times if we hadn't been there." (Hinton 12) Johnny Johnny is a major character in the book. Although he looks fourteen, he is actually sixteen. He kills Bob and ends up having to hide in a church with Ponyboy. "He had big black eyes and a tan face; his hair was jet-black and heavily greased and combed to the side..." (Hinton 11) Knife (or better known as switchblade) "Johnny never walked by himself after that. And Johnny, who was the most law-abiding of us, now carried in his back pocket a six-inch switchblade. He'd use it, too, if he ever got jumped again. They had scared him that much. He would kill the next person who jumped him." (Hinton 34) Liquor Mickey Mouse "He may have belonged to another guy, but he was Soda's horse." (Hinton 40) Night Mares "I woke up screaming bloody murder. And I never could remember what it was that had scared me." (Hinton 110) Darry works hard by roofing houses to support his brothers. "Darry didn't deserve to work like an old man when he was only twenty." (Hinton 16) Ponyboy is the main character in The Outsiders. He is the youngest of three brothers and has no parents. He is a greaser. "I have light-brown, almost red hair, with greenish-grey eyes.I wish they were more grey because I hate most guys that have green eyes..." (Hinton 1) Johnny is the pet of the gang. He is quiet and high-strung since his parents fight all the time. "Johnny is jumpier than ever." (Hinton 34) "Seventeen-year-old Steve is tall, lean, cocky, and smart. He likes to comb his hair in thick complicated swirls. Along with that, he's been Soda's best buddy since grade school." (Hinton 9)
He once called Darry "all brawn, no brain", and ended up with a punch to his jaw. Steve's specialty is cars. He works at the gas station with Sodapop. Steve also considers Pony "a tag along". Sodapop Patrick Curtis, nicknamed "Soda," by the gang and "Pepsi-Cola," by his deceased father. Sodapop is the middle Curtis boy, and is Ponyboy's older brother.
"He has silky, dark gold hair that he combs back- long and silky and straight- and in the summer the sun bleaches it to a shining wheat-gold." (Hinton 8) "If everybody jumped in the arkansas River, ol' Two-Bit would be right on their heels." (Hinton 125) Tuff is the gang's word for "cool". "Tough and tuff are two different words. Tough is the same as rough; tuff means cool, sharp- like a tuff-looking Mustang or a tuff record. In our neighborhood both are compliments." (Hinton 12) "... that Cherry Valence was a real looker." (Hinton 24)
"...redhead..." (Hinton 21)
Ponyboy and Johnny meet Cherry at the drive-in after Dally teases them. Cherry also dated Bob before he died. Most greasers smoke cigarettes to look tuff.
"I want a cigarette. I want a cigarette. We had smoked our last pack." (Hinton 57) Ponyboy and Johnny hide out here while the cops search for them.
"'Hop the three-fifteen freight to Windrixville,' Dally instructed. 'There's an old church on top of Jay Mountain...'" (Hinton 61) Ponyboy had to bleach his hair with peroxide so he didn't look like the description in the newspaper. "'We're gonna cut our hair, and you're gonna bleach yours.'" (Hinton 70) "Young hoods would grow up to be old hoods." (Hinton 138) "'Sure,' I said tiredly. 'We're young and innocent.'" (Hinton 26) The fuzz are the cops! "Maybe he had already been worked over by the fuzz and was waiting to get the electric chair since he wouldn't tell where I was." (Hinton 70)
