Why didn't you make your mind up sooner. I had to drive all the way out here just so you can turn yourself in.
After not eating for a while Johnny and Ponyboy looked like they had never eaten in their life when they started a meal. Johnny revealed to Ponyboy and Dally that he was going to turn himself in. At first Darry was very surprised and angry. After thinking it through Ponyboy thinks Johnny turning himself in is a good idea, but Dally wasn't totally convinced.
Johnny isn't in very good condition. Your other friend is going to be ok, but is also hurt.
Dally yelled at Johnny for not making his mind up sooner about turning himself in. Dally is upset that he had to come all the way out to the country and lie to the cops just so that he could go all the way back. Dally realizes what he said was wrong and he apologizes revealing he has a soft spot for Johnny.
I can't believe that Darry was just hard on me because he wanted to keep me safe. He never hated me!
The boys see a fire in the church and hastily get out of the car. Big and wooden, the building was covered in flames. Children were stuck in the church so Johnny and Ponyboy try to save them because they thought the fire was their fault. All of the children get out safely and Ponyboy passes out.
Ponyboy wakes up in an ambulance and one of the fathers of the children in the church was with him. Jerry fills Ponyboy in on Johnny being in bad condition and Dally being hurt. Ponyboy worries about is friends and was very apprehensive all the way to the hospital.
Ponyboy arrives at the hospital with Jerry. As they are sitting Johnny and Dally arrive. Johnny is in bad shape and Dally is still his joking self. Ponyboy is still nervous and he has a huge pit in his stomach. Jerry tells Ponyboy that he shouldn't smoke and he is surprised because no one cared about him smoking before.
While still waiting for a word on Dally and Johnny Jerry says that Ponyboy's brothers are there to see him. At the door Darry and Sodapop give Ponyboy huge hugs. Darry cries while hugging Ponyboy and Ponyboy realizes that Darry was hard on him because he loved him and he wanted to keep Ponyboy safe.
