Portrayed By Emilio Estevez

The joker of Ponyboy’s group. Two-Bit, an 18-year-old greaser whose real name is Keith, is a extreme wisecracker who regularly shoplifts. He prizes his sleek black-handled switchblade; A result of wandering aimlessly around a hardware store for two hours. He instigates the hostilities between the Socs and the Greasers by flirting with Marcia, the girlfriend of a Soc named Randy. He gets drunk a lot and always needs alcohol in his system to fight without getting scared. Even though his personality is bright, he knows how to act in a tragic or dire situation. Two-Bit is seen to like Mickey Mouse, for he wears shirts with Mickey on it, and in the movie, he watched the show along with Steve.
