"Stay Gold, Ponyboy. Stay Gold..."
"Let's do it for Johnny, man. We'll do it for Johnny!"
"When I 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."
"Need a haircut, greaser?"
"I didn't know you were out of the cooler yet, Dally." (Ponyboy)
"Good behavior. Got off early." (Dallas)
"Tough and tuff are two different words. Tough is the same as rough; tuff means cool, sharp--like a tuff-looking Mustang or a tuff record."
"When I want my kid brother to tell me what to do with my other kid brother, I'll ask you--kid brother."
"I am a greaser...I am a JD and a hood. I blacken the name of our fair city. I beat up people. I rob gas stations. I am a menace to society. Man, do I have fun!"
"Nobody in this neighborhood's going to call the fuzz."
"Tonight we could be proud of it. Greasers may not have much, but they have a rep. That and long hair."
"Come on, Johnny, we're running away."
"Rat race is the perfect name for it...We're always going and going and going, and never asking where."
"That was a tuff car. Mustangs. They're tuff."
"Listen, greasers, we got four more of us in the back seat..." (Bob)
"Then pity the back seat." (Two-Bit)
"And I can't even call the cops because you two would be put in a boys' home so fast it would make your heads spin."
"You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks. It doesn't matter. Greasers will still be Greasers and Socs will still be Socs. It doesn't matter."
"I hope I never see Dallas Winston again. If I do I'd... probably fall in love with him."
"Shoot, this house ain't dirty. You ought to see my house." (Two-Bit)
" I have and if you had the sense of a billy goat, you'd clean your house up 'stead of bummin' 'round ours." (Pony)
"Shoot kid, if I did that, my mom would die of shock." (Two-Bit)
"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...don't fight anymore... please..."
" Hey, after we beat those Socs tonight, good me and Steve are gonna throw a huge party, and everyone's gonna get ripped!"
"Get lost, hood!"
"Man, I thought New York was the only place to end up in a murder rap, Jesus Christ!"
"Hey Two-bit, Mickey's on TV!"
"It's like the mist is what's pretty, ya know? All gold and silver."
"Don't you know a rumble ain't a rumble without me?"
"Johnny's dead. Told him about beating the socs, I don't know. He just died. Told me to stay gold. Dally's gone. He couldn't take it, he's going to blow!"
"Man, this place is out of it. What do they do for kicks around here, play checkers?"
