Johnny, Pony, and Dally are all eating at the Dairy queen when Dally tells them that there is a war going on back home between the socs and the greasers. He also tells them that Cherry is a spy and they leave dairy queen to go home.
While they are driving down the road they notice that the church is on fire, burning like a stack of paper that someone put gasoline on. They pull up and see whats going on.
Pony and Johnny hear voices coming from the church so they gallantly run over to try and save whoever is trapped. They run into the burning, snapping ,sizzling church, start searching, and run into a room and see a group of young kids.
Oh Ponyboy you scared me so much!
Bang! Crack The church crumbled as Johnny and Pony started moving the kids out the window to safety. When Pony and Johnny had saved all the kids they tried to get out but the church collapsed causing Pony Boy to pass out.
Pony wakes up in an ambulance and asks whats happening and a man that he had met at the church tells him that the church collapsed and that Dally and Johnny were both badly injured and that Johnny might not make it.
They get to the hospital and Pony see's the doctors wheeling Dally and Johnny into the operating rooms. While he is waiting for them Darry and Sodapop show up and the brothers are reunited after a crazy week apart.
