He always had a nervous, suspicious look in his eye. Two-Bit mocks Ponyboy for being afraid, but Ponyboy responds that he's not afraid for himself, he's afraid that another tragedy will occur. Tell Dally it was worth it. When you're a kid everything's new. When they return to the church, they find it on fire with seven trapped kids inside. The reporters and the police show up and start bombarding the boys with questions, which they are in no condition to answer.
I've been thinking about it, and the poem, that guy that wrote it, he meant you're gold when your a kid, like green. She responds that she can't because Johnny killed Bob. What do you think Johnny's last words to Pony mean? He doesn't want to die at only sixteen years old. As they wait for a bus home, Two-Bit observes that Ponyboy looks pretty sick. The two jump into the church through a window, and start to pull the children out, one by one.
She understands that he was trying to defend himself, but she still doesn't want to see him. Their exchange about the sunset shows the common ground of the two groups, as well as the hope both characters have for a better future for themselves and their friends. I want you to tell Dally to look at one. I don't think he's ever really seen a sunset. You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want.
Johnny did save the children from the burning church, but he would never have been there in the first place if he hadn't been on the run. Randy also says that he regrets being in the fight, because it upset his dad, and it will be hard to earn further respect from him. After Ponyboy gets back from the movies, his brothers, and the gang, start taking care of him and cleaning him up. When they get there, the boys tell Johnny the good news, to which Johnny responds by saying it's useless. Next, Johnny and Ponyboy find their way to an empty and Ponyboy keeos reminding Johnny that he needs to be home by 12. Darry informs him that he is suffering from a minor concussion, shock, and exhaustion.
Darry was a good student in school and he was an amazing football player, so it wouldn't have been very hard to get into a good collage. He doesn't remember being in the hospital or being unconscious for three days, but he does remember that both Johnny and Dally are dead. The church was almost inhospitable; however, it was far away which helps them from being caught by the police, and it also had water for them to drink. The comment that Ponyboy is making about how society judges people is that he wants everything to be how it used to be. I don't think he's ever really seen a sunset.
He meant you're gold when you're a kid, like green. It was the same kind of helplessness I'd felt that night Darry yelled at me for going to sleep in the lot. It is as though the purely literary use of foreshadowing here takes on a greater significance, and as though Ponyboy changes the past by observing it. I don't think he's ever really seen a sunset. They all settle it out, and go home.
Darry and Soda come into the kitchen, and Ponyboy asks Darry if he knew about the juvenile court appearance; Darry says he did. Even the papers considered him a hero. What do you think he means by this? What does Pony mean on p. Then, Randy tells him that his dad said that he should just tell the truth to the judge. Dally starts talking dirty behind these two girls, who we later find out are named Cherry and Marcia. You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want.
Ponyboy then tells Two-Bit that he has a bad feeling about the rumble. The phone rings, and the call is from Dally. Pony has missed a lot of school, he has missed track, and the threat of being placed in a boys' home is still a very real possibility. Finally, Soda eases his concerns with assurance that he did ask for Darry. Johnny was put straight to care and had burns all over his body.
All of the remaining Socs run away to avoid getting caught by the police, which leaves a wet, shivering Ponyboy, a shocked, yet proud Johnny, and a dead Bob. She thought that Bob was such a great person when he wasn't drinking, and that he was like nobody else that she knew. He asks about Johnny's condition, and is visibly upset when Two-Bit reluctantly tells him the truth. I don't think he knows. He'll probably think you're crazy, but ask for me. Ponyboy and johnny go back inside to save the people trapped inside.
