Dally, Ponyboy, and Johnny are at the Dairy Queen. Dally tells them how the gang is worried and Cherry was a spy. The subject starts to change and Johnny suggests they turn themselves in. After a long conversation, they go back to the church.
We should just turn ourselves in.
When the boys are back at church, it is burning and little kids are trapped inside it. The boys assumed they came with the fat man and lady for a school field trip.
We should help them... I bet we started it
Help...Help! Help, anyone, please! Help!
Wait... Don't get hurt! ... Too late...
Ponyboy is on his way to the hospital. He learns that the fat man's name is Jerry Woods. He also explains the whole story to him on the way there. Jerry didn't seem to care that he was a hood.
Ponyboy: So, am I going to the police?
The police? You just saved so many lives and you think you're going to the police?
At the hospital, Johnny and Dally are receiving the medication they need. Ponyboy reunites with his brothers in the hall of the hospital. They learn that Dally has severely burned his hand, while Johnny was in critical condition. He had broken his back and had burned himself really bad.
Darry: Ponyboy, we thought we lost you.. like we did mom and dad.
I Promise ...
Soda: Don't ever run away like that again, promise?...
Ponyboy is back at home, sleepy and relieved. The three brothers went to sleep, finally.
The next morning when they wake up, Ponyboy sees Two-Bit and steve. The brothers eat breakfast, then Soda, Darry, and Steve go for work. Two-Bit and Ponyboy decide to go see Johnny in the hospital after Ponyboy finished the dishes. Two-Bit was cracking jokes on the way there.
Now you should see Kathy's Brother. Now, that's a hood. His hair's so oily he slides when he walks. And he goes to the barber for an oil change, not a haircut.
