I think Cherry was wise beyond her years. Socs or kids with a lot of money can become numb to real emotions. They rely on fancy cars, gadgets, and superficial relationships to make sense of their world. I think Pony understands this from not having things and relying on his friends and family for comfort. Consider how much Soda, Darry, Two-bit,Johnny....mean to Pony. People like Bob had little comfort from the people around him.
