Dally takes Johnny and Pony to Dairy Queen, after they were left to just about starve for almost a week. He also gets Pony caught up on what was going on at home.
Cherry whats-her-name is a spy.
Cherry the Soc?!
Pony and Johnny get back into Dally's car, where Johnny announces that he is going to turn himself in. This opens up a side that no one has seen from Dally.
%(&*%&$^&*#$. I'm not mad at you Johnny, I just don't want you to get hurt. You'll get hardened in jail, just like I did.
I'm going to turn myself in.
They all reach the top of the hill, where they see that their church hideout is in blazes. They assume it is because they dropped a lit cigarette.
Get back in before I beat your head in.
We must have dropped a lighted cigarette
We were having a picnic and the place went up in blazes.
Pony overhears two 'chaperones' saying that kids were missing, and then hears screams from inside the church. Him and Johnny rush into the church to save the kids.
Kids are missing!
I'm sure they're fine.
Johnny and Pony get all of the kids out safely, but Johnny may have broken his back, Pony passed out from smoke inhalation, and Dally badly burned his arm.
Where's Dally and Johnny? What about the kids?
The tough looking kid is going to be alright, although he burnt his arm pretty bad. Johnny may have broken his back and they're doing plasma on him now. The kids are fine. Maybe a little bit shocked, but fine.
Johnny, Dally, and Pony were taken to the hospital. Pony sees Soda and Darry for the first time in a week, and Pony finally connects with Dally.
I thought we'd lost you for good, like we did mom and dad.
