BC: 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.
FC: The Greasers | Tulsa, Oklahoma-1965
3: Hey, I'm Ponyboy Curtis. But the gang calls me Pony. I'm a Greaser, that means that I live on the east side of town and put lots of grease in my hair.
4: This is the gang
7: Dally | Otherwise know as Dallas Winston, is the tuffest, toughest greaser there ever could be.
9: Johnny | Johnny is the second youngest member of the group being sixteen. Johnny is my best bud. He looks like a lost puppy dog that has been kicked too many times and is lost in a crowd of strangers. He has a rough life at home.
10: Then there is Keith Matthews otherwise known as Two-Bit. He's a wise cracking kleptomaniac.
13: Here's Steve, him and Soda work together at the gas station and have been best buds since grade school.
14: Darrel Curtis | Darry
15: This is my brother, Darrel. But we call him Darry for short. He takes care of Soda and I ever since our folks died in the accident. He is the oldest in the gang being 20 and he is always on my case asking me where I have been, when will I be home. But I guess thats just how he shows his love to me.
16: This here is Sodapop, he is 17 years old and is my other brother. He is a high school dropout and now works at a gas station with Steve. Soda is very sweet, he understands me and loves me very much. All the girls love Soda because, well look at him. He is so handsome.
18: This is the hair grease that all us greasers use to grease our hair
19: Wow. Here is a Socs car, we all wish we had one; but we can't afford them.
20: Soc stands for socials. The socials are people that get everything they want,they have it so easy. They think they are the best.
22: This is when Johnny Dally and I went to the Drive in and sat next to two nice looking socs.
24: Their names where Cherry and Marcia. They are some nice looking socs aren't they?
26: This is when Johnny and I were on our way home and some socs came.
27: Randy Adderson and Robert Sheldon. Oh man, I hated these boys. So cruel and nasty.
28: While we were on our way home, them socs; Bob and Randy came and jumped us! One boy named David tried to drown me... So Johnny decided to kill Bob because he thought that that would make them back off. Oh and trust me. It did.
29: We had to run away, they were going to call the cops. So we went to Dally to ask for help. He told us that there is a little abandon church on top of Jay mountain that we could camp out in until he came to get us.
30: When Dally came to get us, we were not in the church, but when we went back, the church was on fire. We did what had to be done. There was little kids in there! We just had to save them.
31: Dally was fine | I was fine | But Johnny got burned real bad.
32: That night we had a big rumble with the socs. Johnny was still in the hospital. he couldn't fight, he couldn't even move.
33: We won.
34: After the fight, I went to tell Johnny that we won. He wasn't happy, he said that there was no point in fighting, that it wouldn't solve anything. And then... he told me to stay gold, and just left.
35: I went back to tell the rest of the gang. Johnny's dead. Dally flipped. Johnny was like a brother to him. He was the only person that he loved.
37: We lost two members of our gang that night. Long live Johnny and Dally.
