I know when I'm not wanted.

You filthy Greaser!

Are you going to start now, too?

You don't look the type anyway.

What's your name?

Ponyboy Curtis.

That's an original name.

My dad was an original person.

I got a brother named Sodapop.

It says so on his birth certificate.

My name's Sherry, but my friends

call me Cherry because of my hair.

Yeah, I know.

We go to the same school.

You're a cheerleader.

You don't look old enough

to be going to high school.

What's a nice boy like you doing

hanging around with that trash?

Dal is my buddy. I'm a Greaser, too.

We're all friends.

I'm sorry, I didn't know.

Your brother, Sodapop,

he works at the gasoline station?

Yeah, that's him.

-Sodapop is cute.

-I should have known you were brothers.

How come we don't see your brother

at school anymore?

Has he been working full time

since your parents died?

-He's a dropout.

-That's too bad.

I thought this might cool you off.

Maybe that will cool you off

until you learn how to be decent.

Fiery, huh?

Just the way I like them!

Get off of me!
