37 minutes into the Outsiders movie, right as he’s explaining to Ponyboy why he killed Bob, Johnny starts frantically clawing at the dirt, while still talking to Ponebone, and then PUTS THE DIRT THAT HE GATHERED INTO HIS FUCKING POCKET. I AM NOT KIDDING, CHECK MY FUCKING FACTS, HIS SHOULDER MOVEMENTS WHEN HE ZOOMS IN SUGGESTS THAT HE PUT THE DIRT HE COLLECTED INSIDE OF HIS POCKET. I am laughing so hard because imagine how weird it would be when the nurses were changing him out of his clothes after the fire and they’re just like “such a brave boy, running into a burning chu- is this fucking dirt in his pocket.”
Outsiders misinterpretations that I see constantly:
Ponyboy: Cute, completely understanding and accepting of all of his surroundings and the people around him. No ignorance here.
Sodapop: Stands around and looks like a pretty, fragile creature. Would never do anything reckless.
Darry: Constantly serious and angry. Cold expression. Never moves. Eternal, jagged rock lodged in the Earth’s core.
Dally: Amazing. Perfect. Not a bad bone in his body. Would never hurt anyone. Wants to treat a girl like a princess, have her babies, give her all of his money, cook for her constantly. Wouldn’t ever think about intense illegal activity.
Johnny: NEVER STOPS STUTTERING. Apparently blushes so much that you could cook a fuckin pizza on his face.
Two-Bit: Would sacrifice his girlfriend in the name of Mickey Mouse. Always makes stupid, annoying jokes without any wit, rhyme, or reason.
Steve: Complete joke without any sense of intelligence or problem solving
Cherry: Disgusting witch who gets in the way of queer ships
Bob: Absolutely repulsive, no character even assigned to him
