Ponyboy learns several important things from his interactions with Darry. Darry made him think about what he has been doing wrong. For example,” you’re living in a vacuum pony and you’re going to have to to cut it out Johnny and Dallas were our buddies too, but you don’t just stop living because you lose someone.” Ponyboy misses Johnny and Dallas so much. This messes with his head and makes him stop living the way he usually does. When Darry yells at him, Ponyboy learns he can’t live this way because he lost someone.Even though darry yelled at ponyboy aggressively he still learn an important lesson.
