The memory is important because he remember Johnny died a hero and how dally was a hero when he pulled Jonny out of the building.
Dally dies their would be nothing in the paper about it. Johnny died a hero, but Dally died as a hoodlum
This question makes me wonder what will the gang do now and how come ponyboy didn’t go insane like Dally.
How can I take it?
I think it keeps popping up because Ponyboy doesn’t want to remember that two of his good friends are dead, he wants it to go back to the way it was, he wants to stay innocent, and he wants to stay golden.
Again and Again
Dally and Johnny are not dead, Dally and Johnny are not dead
