Soda's dream was to have a horse.

I had cried, too, if you want to know the truth, because Soda never really wanted anything except a horse, and he'd lost his.

Darry's dream was football and college.

I tried to think of something to say about Darry, and shrugged. "What's to talk about? He's big and handsome and likes to play football." (Chapter Three)

He had been a real popular guy in school; he was captain of the football team and he had been voted Boy of the Year. But we just didn't have the money for him to go to college, even with the athletic scholarship he won. And now he didn't have time between jobs to even think about college. So he never went anywhere and never did anything anymore, except work out at gyms and go skiing with some old friends of his sometimes. (Chapter One)

Dally didn't have any dreams....

I couldn't just take it or leave it, like Two-Bit, or ignore it and love life anyway, like Sodapop, or harden myself beyond caring, like Dally, or actually enjoy it, like Tim Shepard.
