Back home, nothin' has stayed the same since y'all left. Our rivalry with those stupid little brats got worse and now it's like we're in a war. And this part will get y'all real good, from what that redhead saw the night at the movies, she don't want us getting jumped no more. So she's agreed to be our spy to give us a heads up when the Socs are gonna jump.
5 children are missing! They said that they were going to look around, and I told them not to go inside the church! What are we going to do?!
It's okay, we'll get them!
HELP!!!!!!!!!!, exclaimed the children
Quit yellin' like a donkey and shut up! Try and get out of the window as soon as possible!!
Let's go! Get out!
Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally are at Dairy Queen discussing about what is happening back home. This is the time in which Dally told the two boys that Cherry was a spy for the Greasers.
Get out! NOW!! You could have died in there!
While all three boys were talking, Dally notices something. He notices that the church in which Pony and Johnny were in, caught on fire. As they went to the sight, they heard cries that sounded like it was coming from inside the church. Soon they found out that 5 children were inside.
WEEOOO! WEEEOOO! WEEOO!
Oh my! This siren is a dog who just saw a bone! Anyway, the other boys, Jhonny and Dally are in the ambulance right behind us. Are you okay?
Where are Dally and Johnny?
Pony and Johnny go in to save the children inside, by pushing them out the window one by one. They needed to do this as quickly as possible because the fire was rising and aggravating quickly.
Ponyboy, I didn't mean no harm to you that night. I just was disappointed and upset. I thought I had lost you, and the way we had lost mom and dad,... I love you Ponyboy.
Darry it's alright. I should of known better anyway. I know that it was hard and I'm sorry. I love both you and Sodapop so much, and can't afford to loose you.
Dally jumps in the church hastily to save the boys' life before it gets too late. The roof already started to chip off and so, he pushes them out the window, crashing them into a wall knocking out both of them.
Jhonny, Dally, and Pony got severely injured in some way, shape or form. Johnny was in a coma, and Dally and Pony passed out. As they were in the ambulance, the teacher, Geri, trailed along to check on what was going on with them. Ponyboy talked to him in a faint voice and was impressed to see that he didn't freak out or overreact that the three boys were greasers, and that two of them, Pony and Jhonny were in big trouble by the police.
Ponyboy gets notified that people were outside waiting for him, and so when he goes to the doors, he sees Soda and Darry. He hugs Soda first, and then looks at Darry to find him weeping up a 100-mile long river. Darry explains to Ponyboy why he had slapped him that night and that he was really sorry. All the brothers are scared of losing each other like they did mom and dad, so Darry explains that is the reason for him being so strict on the outside, yet loving on the inside.
