Dallas moved to Tulsa from New York, he has been in gangs most of his life and he mentions having previously been involved in a murder rap. Also, both his gang and the Shepard gang use a distinctive whistle to identify themselves, a long low whistle followed by a sudden high note, with an identical whistle used as a reply. In West Side Story the Jets use this same procedure and even use an almost identical whistle. If Dallas used to be a Jet then he must have taught this custom, with the accompanying whistle, to his new friends after he moved. In the book Dallas is described as having whispy blond hair, high cheekbones and an impish expression, as well as an unusual affection for a younger gang member named Johnny (or John) all of which match the typical portrayal of Arab in West Side Story.

[[WMG: Johnny is an AlternateUniverse interpretation of JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac.]]
Think about it. Same name, both killers, both orphans, both need very little to be pushed over the edge. Thus, if Johnny of ''Literature/TheOutsiders'' was raised elsewhere without the Greasers, he'd become JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac. Hey, it's an EpilepticTree, but still.

* Our Johnny isn't an orphan, though, merely a kid who doesn't spend a lot of time at home because his parents are neglectful at their best and abusive at their worst. And it can be argued that it takes ''a lot'' to push Johnny over the edge--nearly beating him to death and then almost drowning his best friend, to be exact.
