Ricky is killed. The tragedy is compounded by the fact that the day's mail had brought news that his SAT scores were high enough that he was going to be admitted into USC. Tre, at first, joins Doughboy and his friends as they go out for revenge. But Tre can't go through with it and leaves the car and returns home before Doughboy and company find Ricky's killers, thus avoiding crossing the line of no return. After Tre's departure, Doughboy and his friends do find Ricky's killers and succeed in killing them in revenge. The next day, Doughboy laments to Tre that taking revenge doesn't give him much satisfaction, since his brother is still dead, and that no one outside the 'hood seems to notice or care about the constant violence that engulfs their lives. Before the credits, we find out Doughboy was killed soon after and that Tre goes off to college.
The Old Man: Ain't nobody from outside bringing down the property value. It's these folk, shootin' each other and sellin' that crack rock and shit.
Furious Styles: Well, how you think the crack rock gets into the country? We don't own any planes. We don't own no ships. We are not the people who are flyin' and floatin' that shit in here.
Trivia: Writer/director John Singleton has a cameo in this film. He is the mailman with the uniform, cap, and sunglasses that delivers the letters to Doughboy's mother's house when Doughboy and Ricky are having a fight out on the front lawn. John gives the letters to the boys' mother.Allister Cooper, 2011
