Ponyboy learned from Randy that it's "rough all over" and that socs have feelings too. Before talking to Randy, Ponyboy had this idealized view of socs, that maybe they didn't bleed like the greasers did. After talking to Randy, he came to realize just how similar the two boys really were, regardless of clique.
