The Outsiders1983

Sodapop Curtis:
[In the "Complete Novel" version; after Sodapop runs out from Ponyboy and Darry's fight, Ponyboy tackles him] God damn it Ponyboy, you should have gone out for football instead of track.

Ponyboy:
[On the ground] Where the hell do you think you're going?

Sodapop Curtis:
I don't know, man. It's just like sometimes I have to get out. It's like I'm the middle man in a tug-of-war or something between you guys. I don't know, I can't take sides.

[Sits down. To Ponyboy]

Sodapop Curtis:
Ponyboy, Darry could've put you in a boys' home, worked his way through college. I'm telling you the truth, Pony. I'm happy working at a gas station. Working with cars. I'm dumb. It's alright, I don't mind. You're not Pony. You'd never be happy doing something like that.

[to Darry]

Sodapop Curtis:
Darry, you gotta stop yelling at him for every little thing he does, man. I mean he, he feels things differently than you. Bad enough to have to

[sniffling]

Sodapop Curtis:
to listen to you. But when you start trying to get me to take sides. We're all we got left now. If we don't have each other, then we ain't got nothing. And when you ain't got nothin, you end up like Dally... I don't mean dead either, I mean, I mean how he was before. So please...

[Starts crying]

Sodapop Curtis:
don't fight anymore... please...

Darrel Curtis:
Sure... sure little buddy, we ain't goin' to fight anymore.

[Hugs Sodapop]

Sodapop Curtis:
[Sees Ponyboy looking left out and crying] Ponyboy... Pony.

[Ponyboy goes over to hug Sodapop]

Sodapop Curtis:
Now don't you start bawlin' too Pony. One bawl-baby in this family's enough.

Ponyboy:
[Crying] I ain't cryin.

Sodapop Curtis:
Let's go home. I'm cold.

[They get up and race each other home]
