Ponyboy really doesn't fit the greaser mode. He's smart, an avid reader, and he wants an education. He resents what he sees as Darry's hovering but later understands it. Ponyboy doesn't love their environment or even want the experiences he faces daily. He'd rather escape to the country.... he'd rather have his parents back.
