Ponyboy Curtis just got out of the movie theater thinking of Paul Newman and a way home. While he was thinking of that a Corvair pulled up to him and 5 Socs got out. One of the Socs told Ponyboy that he wanted to do him a favor to give him a haircut. As Ponyboy was trying to run away the Socs catch up and pin him to the ground and hold a switchblade to his neck. When they are about to cut him, Darry and Sodapop come to help Ponyboy from the Socs. The Socs run off and Ponyboy only had a cut under his chin.
