We put it out before you got burned. That jacket saved you from a bad burning, maybe saved your life. You just keeled over from smoke inhalation and a little shock--- of course, that slap on the back didn't help much.
It was? Golly, I didn't feel it. It don't hurt.
Dallas hit me. How come?
Because your back was in flames, that's why.
Are you taking us to the police station?
Are Johnny and Dally all right?
The police station? What would we want to take you to the police station for? We're taking all three of you to the hospital.
Johnny has black hair. Dally's the mean-looking one.
Which one's which?
We think the towheaded kid is going to be all right. He burned one arm pretty badly, though, trying to drag the other kid out the window. Johnny, well, I don't know about him. A piece of timber caught him across the back--- he might have a broken back, and he was burned pretty severely. He passed out before he got out the window. They're giving him plasma now.
As Ponyboy and Jerry are in the ambulance, Jerry is still answering Ponyboy's question.
There are some people here to see you. Claim to be your brothers or something.
You shouldn't be smoking.
Why uh, uh, your too young.
Ponyboy is thinking they are being taken to a police but then Jerry reassures him that they are going to the hospital.
Jerry is telling Ponyboy Dally's and Johnny's condition
TO BE CONTINUED...
Ponyboy and Jerry are in the hospital and waiting for Dally and Johnny's doctor to tell them about their condition and then somebody is here to meet Ponyboy.
In the hospital, Sodapop and Darry come to visit Ponyboy, Dally, and Johnny.
