Dally, me and Ponyboy are gonna turn ourselves in to the fuzz
Don't worry! We will help you get out of here!
In the car coming back from the Dairy Queen, Johnny told Dally that he was going to turn himself in. He did't want to live his whole life in a church, hiding from the inevitable, like some strange hermit.
The towheaded kid will be just fine. Not sure about the other one though.
What about Johnny and Dally?!
When Ponyboy, Dally, and Johnny go back to the church, they see that it is in flames, and that there are kids trapped inside! The kids were on a school picnic and they went in the church. Then it caught fire and the kids are trapped inside!
Ponyboy and Johnny gallantly climbed through a window into the burning church to save the kids inside. They felt as if they had to, because they had indirectly started the fire.
After saving the kids, Johnny, Ponyboy, and Dally were all injured and taken to the hospital. They had taken the kids out through the window, which is where they had come in before. As they were escaping though, the roof, creaking and moaning, collapsed in.
Concerned and excited, Sodapop and Darry visited Ponyboy in the hospital after the church fire. They had finally found out where he had ran off to and were excited to reunite!
Ponyboy finds out that Darry really did love him, he just used tough love because he wanted him to be the best version of himself he could be. He only wanted Ponyboy to be successful.
