2 When Ponyboy reads the note Johnny left him

Unquestionably the most voluptuously executed occasion because of the orgasmic concept behind it.

It was so sad but I loved it!



3 When Pony and Johnny befriend Cherry and Marcia

Good book. This was when it actually got interesting so it gets my vote - ProPanda

Notice that I've put Johnny and Ponyboy in literally every item so far. - AnonymousChick

4 Johnny's death

How is this the fourth come on dawgs

I'm not the type of person that cries easily speially in books or movies but I think this is the first time I cried in a book and movie.

Can I also just say this:
In english we had a quiz/worksheet about it and the kids hadn't even read up to chapter six. I had obviously read it twice s it didn't matter but still. one of the question sliterally said that Johnny died and well, the girl who sits next to me is the only other kid in my class who read it and she freaked out and we cried for a solid 30 seconds - AnonymousChick

And when I say best I don't mean
"YAY he died! " I mean
"Why, Johnny?! I loved you and now you died! " - AnonymousChick

5 Dally's death

Dally's death really meant something to the story. It showed that even tough people can care about people.

He is not a bad person. His death made me so sad. - AnonymousChick

6 When Sodapop gets upset that Darry and Ponyboy always fight.

At the end when it shows the brotherly love was one of my favorite parts. - AnonymousChick

7 When Ponyboy gets beaten up by the Socs

This actually was an interesting scene because don't the socs go for Johnny all the time instead

Ok now I think you are choosing random scenes from the film. What's next? The part where they see the drive in movie? - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

This isn't a good thing, its just tthe part where you get to know the characters and how they live - AnonymousChick

8 Where Ponyboy runs away

Basically the part where the story began unfolding. - AnonymousChick

9 When Johnny killed Bob

A huge turning point for the novel. It definitely showed a change in Johnny's character.

10 Nothing Gold Can Stay

Bros n hoes!

The Contenders

11 The rumble

This was a major part of the story, and, to me, was the climax of the story

12 Ponyboy Explains Sodapop's Horse Mickey Mouse

It was so cute that sodapop had a horse but so sad when it said he couldn't see him again. :(

13 Cherry and Ponyboy's Dirty Scene

I liked it. A lot.

14 When Darry slaps Ponyboy
15 When Cherry Got Super Mad at Dally

It was my favourite moment in the outsiders I almost cried laughing.

16 The New Improved Soundtrack

This movie came out when I was about seventeen years old and it had a great impact on me. I bought the DVD a few years ago with the new improved soundtrack ( the soundtrack was different when this movie came out in the eighties. It had no Elvis Presley songs. ) and I was so pleased of all the new songs they had put in it. For instance, when he's walking next to the railroad tracks there's Elvis's " Mystery Train " playing, when they go hide to stay low for a while there's Elvis's " We're gonna move " playing... So, for me the best moment was the discovering of the new soundtrack because it created other " best moments " in the movie.

The new soundtrack was awful - pjo
