Yes! i am. I'm always quoting things. In real life i'll be like to my friend Anna who's scared of heights to jump off something " Come on Anna! Do it for johnny!" And i'll also say stuff up there as you said. I find it really fun. In my 'group' everyone's read it, 3 of us are obsessed with it though.

I used to do it more than I do now. I think everyone goes through a phase, especially in junior high and high school, where they'll speak like their friends do, or they'll speak like what is most commonly engrained in their minds. I read the book over and over and over and over and over between my 7th and 10th grade years, and it wasn't uncommon for me to say things like, "Off your rocker" or "beat the tar out of him" or "You dig?" and "I know the score, alright?"

Eventually I started to realize that I kinda sounded dumb, even to my own ears. Not to say that people who go around talking like this are dumb, but in a modern day context it seems a little silly to talk like you're in the sixties. Just imagine if you were obsessed with the books Roots or Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, and you went around speaking like a slave or a previously enslaved black person. I think it'd sound kinda funny, but that's my opinion, LOL.

But yes, even to this day I have to get my two-bits in and give in to my 60's, southern, alternative world, every once in a while :)

Sometimes I catch myself using a phrase from the movie, and I hear others do it too. Stay Gold, Karen

I quote the book all the time but my friends already think I'm a nutcase who's obsessed with My Chemical Romance and Sodapop. Talking like this is one of the more "normal" things I do.

haha, yeah same with my friends. Well, actually people that aren't even really my friends, know i love the outsiders. So when i'm talking like them/about them, it's pretty much normal for them.

For some reason I had always talked like them, I guess I picked it up from my dad, he talks alot like them. So i didn't pick up anything new.

My mom and I have this thing that whenever we see cops, I go, "It's the fuzz!" I'll talk about the book to my brother...even though I know he doesn't care. Ans, when I'm talking to my friend from quizilla.com we'll use tuff. It's just too bad that my Southern accent sucks,so now I can't annoy my mom and dad.

Funnily enough I find myself doing that from time to time and it's all the more strange because everybody around expects me to talk german. So I talk to the dog instead :-D.

Yep, that's definitey me. Every time I spot a really cool car, I gawk and mutter in awe, "Man, that's one TUFF car..." And the likes, you know? The boys' slang really got to me and for about two or three months now I'm head-over-heels in love with the book and movie.

Wow no way so there are other people doing the same thing!! I'm not the only one! Yea I do that all the time, saying tuff and fuzz and my FAVORITE quote: then pity the back seat :) I love talking like them it drives my little sister mad. She thinks I've gone crazy or something, being OBSESSED with the book. :P
And my friend thinks I need help. I am always talking about the book and the characters and stuff, and talking like them only gets her worried. My parents think I have a problem. :) That's all right, I lone it. No one understands how important The Outsiders really means to me.
I'm glad for this forum!! I love it! There are people here who love the book and connect with it like I do! Yay!

You got that right! My friends think I've got problems too, like I'm off my rocker or somethin'. Especially when I go about saying how amazing Rob and Ralph were.... Hah, and my folks give me strange looks everytime I pop in the DVD (which is almost every other day). Maybe I AM out of my mind, but y'know what? I don't give a hang. I love that book, I love the movie, and I love the actors. LONG LIVE THE OUTSIDERS, BABY!!! :20: <3
