Darry and Ponyboy push Sodapop to the edge and he runs into a field. After Sodapop explains that he doesn't like being put in the middle, Darry and Ponyboy promise to not fight again.
They start to race, but no one wins. They all wanted to stay together.
Ponyboy makes sure Cherry knows he wouldn't use the bottle. "I couldn't ever cut someone." (pg. 45) Cherry tells Ponyboy that she wouldn't talk to him in the hallway . It wasn't personal, but.. "We could have hurt her reputation." (pg. 47) that would probably damage her reputation "...and don't say hi, well, it's not personal or anything..." (pg. 45).
