Cherry tells Ponyboy that the greasers have a different set of values. They are more emotional than the Socs. The Socs are so cool and sophisticated that they feel nothing, and they don't mean half of what they say. She says the Socs have everything, so they keep looking for something else to satisfy them. They're numb to feeling anything, and the greasers feel things too much, too violently.
