Pony is really amazed that Cherry is a Soc. Cherry shares her philosophy on what separates the two gangs; she speaks not only about social class and money but about passion as well. Ponyboy is astonished at how similar the two gangs really are; they share a "basic sameness." Both feel alienated but in different ways. The Socs feel nothing and the Greasers feel too much. Cherry also launches into sunsets on both sides of the tracks which impresses Pony further.
