The Fire at the Abandoned Church
When Ponyboy tells Cherry about how Johnny was beat up by Socs, Cherry tells Ponyboy that not all Socs are like that. In this discreet way, she helps him see that all Socs are not bad, and definitely she isn't bad. Cherry also makes Ponyboy open up a bit, and this definitely helps him trust her. However, when she says that she won't go visit Johnny, because he killed Bob and she can't look the person that killed Bob in the face, Ponyboy probably stops trusting her as much, seen when he calls Cherry a traitor to the greasers.
When Ponyboy and Johnny rescue the children from the abandoned church, they feel like it was their duty to do so. They think so because it was their cigarettes that started the fire. It helps Ponyboy to become a stronger character, especially when an article appears in the newspaper calling them heroes. It also made hm feel that it was worth it, to save the children and to get burned, even though Johnny would be crippled for life if he didn't die.
Ponyboy's relationship with Darry was never intimate and Ponyboy was pretty uncertain whether or not Darry loved him. Unfortunately, Darry never displayed much affection for Ponyboy, and when he slapped him in a fit of anger, Ponyboy was quite sure Darry hated him and did not care about him. When Ponyboy and Johnny ran away, Darry was extremely worried, but Ponyboy didn't know this. When the two boys returned home and Ponyboy met Darry in the hospital, Ponyboy may have realized for the first time how much Darry cared about him.
