That time when we were in Windrixville was the only time I've ever been away from my neighborhood.

Ponyboy: It was your bright idea, smarty.

Dallas: Johnny, you don't know what a few months in jail can do to you, man. You get mean in jail, I just don't wanna see that happen to you like it happened to me, man. Understand?

Cherry: Can't you leave us alone? be nice and leave US alone.
