“I used to talk about killing myself all the
time, man. But I don’t wanna die now. It ain’t long enough. Sixteen
years ain’t gonna be long enough. Hell, I wouldn’t care so much if there
hadn’t been so many things I haven’t done yet. So many damn things I
ain’t seen or done. That time when we were in Windrixville was the only
time I’ve ever been away from my neighborhood.”
SE Hinton’s hand-written list of all of the characters’ birthdays and star signs, created while she was working on The Outsiders TV show. I believe she also later went back and added Johnny’s (March 1, Pisces) and Dally’s (November 9, Scorpio). (Unless that’s another thing fans made up. I’m pretty sure it isn’t, but who even knows at this point).
