In Chapter 4, how come Ponyboy and Johnny go to Dally for help?
After killing Bob the Soc in the park, Pony and Johnny know they need to hide from the police, since turning themselves in doesn't seem to be an option. Johnny decided that
"We'll need money. And maybe a gun. And a plan."
Johnny knew that Dallas Winston would know what to do, so they headed to Buck Merril's place, where a party was underway. Johnny knew that Dallas's street savvy and his hatred of both Socs and the police would help him to come up with a plan. Dally had previously staked out the abandoned church on Jay Mountain and planned to use it himself as a hideout, if necessary. Now, it was the perfect place for Pony and Johnny to use. Dally provided them with money, a gun, some dry clothes, and the route by train to the church. There he would meet them later in the week.
