The Outsiders takes place mainly on the East Side (the greasers' side)of the town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The time it takes place is around 1965. It also partially takes place out in the country, when Johnny and Ponyboy run away. The main setting (Tulsa,) may affect the characters, because it being such a "hostile" town, may make them more violent. Some of the violence could be why Johnny killed the Soc, or why Dallycommited suicide. Greasers Socs Or is it? Plot On page 3, Ponyboy talks about how greasers are like hoods, shoplifting and holding up gas stations, but then he says he doesn't do that. Though it's stereotyped that all greasers do that, not all do. "...What can I do? I'm marked chicken if I punk out at the rumble, and I'd hate myself if I didn't." -Randy, Another Soc "Mrs. O'Briant and I think you were sent straight from heaven. Or are you just professional heroes or something?""No, we're greasers.""You're what?""Greasers. You know, like hoods, JD's. Johnny is wanted for murder, and Dallas has a record with the fuzz a mile long."-Conversation with Ponyboy and Jerry, a teacher of the kids Ponyboy and Johnny saved. Character Analysis: Johnny Johnny is a very important part of this story. He is the one who kills the Soc, affecting the Socs that way,and affecting Ponyboy and Dally when he "drags" them along on a runaway so he doesn't get arrested. He responds to the killing by,as I said, running away,but later he decides the best option is to turn himself in. He also responds quickly when he sees the church is on fire, running in to save the kids. His gang liked him a lot,and that was the only reason he didn't run away, because his parents were terrible to him. If the gang wasn't so nice to him, he may have ran away, not killed the Soc,and wouldn't have helped save the children.Thus, he may not have died. He still was brave at death, though not wanting to die,accepted it,making your heartwrench with his last words, "Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold..."Johnny dying affected the whole gang, even driving Dallas off to suicide.This is why Johnny was so important. Bob Sheldon and Randy Adderson, two of the Socs Ponyboy's Gang "Things are rough all over." -Cherry "When I (Ponyboy) stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind:Paul Newman and a ride home." "Nobody was ever going to beat him (Johnny) like that again.Not over his dead body..." "Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold..." -Johnny "...So dawn goes down to day.Nothing gold can stay." -Robert Frost, "Nothing Gold Can Stay" Exposition:This story begins with Ponyboy, the narrator, gettingattacked by the Socs.

The first two support the themebecause the speakers are both Socs. Cherry is telling us that Socs haveproblems too, and Randy has the"evil Soc cred," but he doesn't want to "live up to it" and fight in the rumble.The conversation between Jerry andPonyboy shows that even thoughgreasers are supposed to be allhood-like and criminal, Pony, Johnny and Dally made Jerry think they were incredible, regular heroes.Finally, the fourth one shows howthough it's stereotyped that greasersare hoods and stuff, Ponyboy,and as you know, other greasers, like Darry or Johnny, don't do thatstuff.
