CHARACTER VS. CHARACTER
Ponyboy and Johnny thought that maybe they should turn themselves in and not have to go through all the trouble, but they also had second thoughts and were also pretty scared of what may happen.
Are you sure?
I think we should just turn ourselves in. How bad could jail really be?
CHARACTER VS. SELF
When the church that they hid in to hide from the police caught on fire, they had to help some kids that were trapped in there because the fire may have potentially been their fault and they thought it was caused by their cigarettes.
I think our cigarette caused this! We have to help those kids!
