He even challenges his idol, Dallas, when he sees how uncomfortable Dallas is making Cherry and Marcia at the movies. Johnny comforts his friend then five Socs turn up.
For the rest of my life, I need her.
Ever since that moment, he was extremely jumpy and always carried a switchblade in his back pocket. Ponyboy wakes up, realizing that it's past his curfew, and rushed home.
The same ones that had jumped Johnny during the summer. Sound good? He had big black eyes in a dark tanned face; his hair was jet-black and heavily greased and combed to the side, but it was so long that it fell in shaggy bangs across his forehead.
The relationship between these two boys is very interdependent. Their lives are worth more than mine, they have more to live for. Real tough.
Johnny cade wanted poster
Johnny stay behind and later Ponyboy returns saying that Darry slapped him. The gash was caused by the large rings worn by the Soc who grabbed him. Oh, god. Physical and emotional strain, plus guilt over killing Bob, make it even worse. The same ones that had jumped Johnny during the summer. He is able to hold his own at a rumble, but distances himself from the running and common conflict of being a greaser as often as he can manage, this being because of the stigma that follows the greasers. Johnny was scared of his own shadow after that. To make things even worse, Johnny was brutally beaten by the Socs last spring and now lives in a constant state of fear and PTSD: I had never been jumped, but I had seen Johnny after the four Socs got hold of him, and it wasn't pretty. Johnny had been severely beaten by a group of Socs before this story begins. Flashback Johnny was jumped by Socs about four months before the book began and was severely injured. Since that day the gang always made sure that they kept an eye on Johnny, knowing that they would be less vulnerable if they were at least in a group of two. Ponyboy tells the readers, "If it hadn't been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are.
A bandaid. The theme of family love is clarified by Johnny many times, because his eyes have seen what family love isn't.
Since the story is told from Pony's point of view, we never get the full details of the killing. After being involved in so much violence, it probably made him feel clean and new, at least to some degree. He had big black eyes in a dark tanned face; his hair was jet-black and heavily greased and combed to the side, but it was so long that it fell in shaggy bangs across his forehead. She sat in the spot next to me and began to blot at the drying blood on my face. He was sixteen then. Real tough. It's worth saving their kids. When his parents aren't physically and or verbally abusing him, they're ignoring him. In school Ponyboy has stated that he has failed many years and people think of Johnny as dumb. They think that having had taken a beating by a two by four and then again by a jeweled up Soc made me completely tolerant to physical pain by this point. Johnny vows that, "He would kill the next person who jumped him. He's been kicked around, ignored, and abused all his life. For the rest of my life, I need her.
That was all Johnny had ever wanted. Poor Johnny has a really rough life.
Johnny cade death
The gang makes up Johnny's entire support system, but since they're struggling kids themselves, this support is far from sufficient. A bandaid. He also does seem to enjoy reading as he begged for a copy of ''Gone With the Wind'' in his hospital bed, and enjoys the book when Pony reads it to him. The gash was caused by the large rings worn by the Soc who grabbed him. He had a nervous, suspicious look in his eyes. And that gets us into one of the trickiest territories of the novel—Johnny's killing of Bob. Stop whining and let me finish fixing you up. We never see him being mean or mistreating others. He was sixteen then. Did Johnny do the right thing?
