Yeah that little broad at the movies is helping us and spying. Cherry was her name?
We oughta turn ourselves in. Ponyboy didn't do nothing, so he shouldn't have to hide with me. I ain't got no record with the fuzz.
Turn yourselves in? You must be about out of your mind!
I'll save them!
Surprised and shocked, Dally explains to Johnny and Ponyboy how Cherry, the Soc, is spying on the rest of the Socs to help the Greasers. Johnny and Ponyboy are taken back by the news and are surprised to hear that she of all people, would even think about helping them.
Shut up! We're goin' to get you out!
On the way home, Johnny explains how he is going to turn himself in for the murder of Bob the Soc. Dally is taken off his feet by this idea and he strongly urges Johnny not to turn himself in, using his personal life as an example. Dally was about as angry as a bull, as they slowly began to approach the church once more.
Nah. We're Greasers.
What are you guys like professional heroes or somethin'?
Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally approach the church to reveal it was set on fire. The cause is unknown. They asked the teachers what was going on and some of the kids ended up being trapped inside. Ponyboy hastily ran inside, Johnny following close behind him. Dally cursed under his breath.
Ponyboy and Johnny gallantly bolt into the increasingly burning building, the screams of children became louder. They approached the kids and they start to help them out of the burning church. After all the kids were out of the church, the building was about to collapse. Johnny pushed Ponyboy out the window, so he would be saved, trapping Johnny inside.
Ponyboy, Dally, and Johnny are all taken to the hospital. Ponyboy ends up with the teacher in the ambulance and they are being proclaimed heroes for saving all the children from the burning church. Ponyboy and the teacher end up making conversation while in the ambulance, as Ponyboy asks about Dally's and Johnny's condition and how they are doing.
Once the three boys are taken to the hospital, Ponyboy is cleared. However, it is revealed that Dally is going to be okay, but Johnny in critical condition. While there, Ponyboy reunites with his two brothers, Sodapop and Darry. Ponyboy and Darry had an argument, but Ponyboy realizes that Darry really does love him, ended their mini feud.
