Dallas: We gotta win that fight tonight. We gotta get even with those Socs! Let's do it for Johnny, man. We'll do it for Johnny!
[Ponyboy comes home]
Darrel Curtis: Where the hell have you been; do you know what time it is? It's 2:00 in the morning, kiddo!
Sodapop Curtis: [sleepily] Hey, Pony. Where you been?
Ponyboy: Fell asleep in the lot.
Darrel Curtis: You WHAT?
Ponyboy: I was talking to Johnny and I fell asleep in the lot, didn't mean to.
Darrel Curtis: Yeah, hey!
[tries to close the bedroom door after him but Darry flings it open and follows]
Darrel Curtis: And I can't even call the cops because you two would be put in a boys' home so fast it would make your heads spin.
Sodapop Curtis: Come on, Pony. Let's go to bed now.
Ponyboy: Look, I said I didn't mean to!
Darrel Curtis: "I didn't mean to", "I forgot". That's all I ever hear from you!
Sodapop Curtis: Come on, Darry...
Darrel Curtis: YOU SHUT UP! I'M SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING YOU STICK UP FOR HIM! YOU HEAR ME?
Ponyboy: Don't you yell at him!
Darrel Curtis: [Darrel hits him] Ponyboy, I didn't mean to.
Randy: You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks. It doesn't matter. Greasers will still be Greasers and Socs will still be Socs. It doesn't matter.
Cherry: I hope I never see Dallas Winston again. If I do I'd... probably fall in love with him
Two Bit: Shoot, this house ain't dirty. You ought to see my house.
Ponyboy: I have and if you had the sense of a billy goat, you'd clean your house up 'stead of bummin' 'round ours.
Two Bit: Shoot kid, if I did that, my mom would die of shock.
Ponyboy: Nature's first green is gold, / Her hardest hue to hold. / Her early leaf's a flower, / But only so an hour. / Then leaf subsides to leaf, / So Eden sank to grief. / So dawn goes down to day, / Nothing gold can stay.
Johnny: Where did you learn that? That's what I meant.
Ponyboy: Robert Frost wrote it. I always remembered it because I never quite knew what he meant
Johnny: [his last lines] Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold
Two Bit: [of Pony with his hair bleached] Look at the blonde-headed monkey!
Ponyboy: [after climbing through the church windows, of Jerry] Is the guy coming?
Ponyboy: Why? Too scared?
Johnny: Naw, too fat, man.
Steve: Hate to tell you this buddy, but you have to wear clothes to work. There's a law or something.
Dallas: You think my old man gives a hang if I'm dead in a car wreck or drunk or in jail or something, he doesn't care but that doesn't bother me. You're not going anywhere
