Ponyboy, Johnny and Dally were at Dairy Queen, When Johnny said he would turn himself in to the police so he wouldn't have to be abused. Dally was upset with Johnny for not making that decision sooner, since it would have saved time and money.
IT'S OK KIDS!!!
SHUT UP KIDS WE'RE GETTING YOU OUT OF HERE
Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally went to the car and started back to the church to get all the extra supplies, and the church was on fire!
Pony and Johnny got out of the car, and Dally said he would beat them if they didn't get back in the car, but Pony threw a rock at the window to get in the church, so he could save the children.
I thought we lost you like mom and dad
The children were screaming and yelling for help, when Ponyboy and Johnny arrived in the church to rescue all the children. Dally yelled for Pony and Johnny, but they didn't listen. Once all the kids were out and Pony and Johnny tried to get out, Pony was clobbered on the back and the roof colapsed.
Pony woke up in the ambulance, not knowing where he was and then he found out that Dally clobbered him in the back only because his back was in flames. He also found out that he was in the ambulance with Jerry.
Sodapop came in the hospital room, stroking Pony's hair. Darry walked in with the same "pleading look" on his face as the funeral of his parents, except this time he was crying. Ponyboy finally realized Darry cared about him.
