His nervousness comes as a result of being beaten up by the Socs since the incident Johnny has always kept a watchful eye and carries a pocket knife in his back pocket in case the Socs attack him. Another part of Johnny's being timid is his nervousness. Pony is in shock to see Bob lying dead on the ground, knowing that Johnny has killed him. Whenever a fight starts, he is always trying to stay out of the way; however, when Ponyboy ends up nearly getting killed by the Socs, he doesn't hesitate to save his friend from near death. Soda then makes Pony realize that he has always selfishly expected Darry to be understanding, without ever trying to understand Darry in return. He is convinced that she will simply yell at him for being an inconvenience, for he has been treated as a bother throughout his existence. The only thing that Dally loved was Johnny.
Pony knows that it is ironic that most of the Greasers are quite decent people who want to be left alone, while most of the Socs are cold-blooded and mean trouble makers. Ever since that moment, he was extremely jumpy and always carried a switchblade in his back pocket. You don't know what a few months in jail can do to you. When Johnny, little and vulnerable, suffers at the hands of the Socs, the greasers feel justified in their hatred of the rival gang. When the police question him about the whereabouts of Pony and Johnny, he misdirects them to Texas in order to protect his friends. He drinks excessively, lies, cheats, steals, rolls drunks, and jumps small children.
But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a viscious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up 'greasers' like Ponyboy. After he was beaten Johnny became more aware of the situation, and he started carrying around a switchblade to protect. When his parents aren't physically and or verbally abusing him, they're ignoring him. He won't be as soft as he was before, but he won't be as tough as Dallas was. When Pony and Johnny approach him for help after Bob is killed, he unhesitatingly does all he can for them; he gives them dry clothes, money, a loaded gun, and instructions for going to a hide-out. Dallas: Johnny was the only thing that Dally actually cared about, and was protective over Johnny.
It is as if life has become too much for him to bear. On the way home they go the park, and fall asleep. And don't be so bugged over being a greaser. Ponyboy: Johnny was close friends with Ponyboy. Ponyboy and Johnny saved all of the kids and the church was about to collapse. Keep that way, it's a good way to be.
He comes to visit them in the abandoned church to make sure that they are all right and do not need anything. Even though Johnny has had crummy role models, he's tries to stand up and be a good person. Johnny's Inspiring Words When Johnny realized that he was probably going to die, his first reaction was fear, but that changed once Johnny had a chance to think things over. Although a gentle boy, he has a profound impact with his startling, persistent demand for peace. He didn't want Ponyboy getting hurt.
Pony is bitter about the fact that people never blame the Socs for any trouble because they look decent with their short hair, nice clothes, and expensive cars; instead, the Greasers are always blamed because they have long, oily hair and wear scruffy clothes. The street gangs of New York were Dally's stomping ground before he moved to Oklahoma. He is best known for his great acting in movies, such as: Pirates of the caribbean, Charlie and the chocolate factory, The secret Window, Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd, Public Enemies, etc. Dally was proud of him. His parents were killed in a car accident, so he lives with his two brothers, Soda and Darry.
He's a lot like Ponyboy, who thinks about things other than fighting and rumbles, like sunsets and movies. He always had a nervous, suspicious look in his eye. 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. Johnny's father is abusive and hits him when he comes in the house. Two-bit knew better than to scare Johnny like that. Rescuing the children was a selfless action that Johnny performed willingly and performed well. She helps the Greasers by making sure there are not going to be weapons at the rumble.
During the train trip, it is Johnny who stays awake in the boxcar and gets Pony up when it is time to jump off the train. Although he is a good student, Darry wants to make certain that Pony does his best in school so that he can rise above being a Greaser and make something of himself. They tried drowning Ponyboy, and Johnny didn't know what to do, so he killed Bob, the Soc. His old man hits him constantly so he is afraid of his own shadow. It's just when you get used to everything that it's day. Since his parents do not care for him, Johnny sees the greasers as his true family. He is horribly burned and his back is broken.
Like it happened to me. He eventually dies, and even if he had survived, he wouldn't have been able to feel anything below the middle of his back. Flashback Johnny was jumped by Socs about four months before the book began and was severely injured. During the rescue effort, a burning timber falls on him. On the way to seeing Darry, they are jumped by some Socs and are saved by the rest of the gang. When the got back to the church it was on fire.
This shook up Gruelle so much he retreated into fantasy cartoons- creating Raggedy Anne in the process. He quit school and went to work to keep the family together. But how do you feel about this? The church was almost inhospitable; however, it was far away which helps them from being caught by the police, and it also had water for them to drink. The other boys know that when they are in trouble, he will know what to do. Although you could think of Johnny as being a murderer for stabbing and killing Bob. He then later appears after Johnny killed Bob; he was at a party in 's house in the bedroom trying to get some sleep.
