The key events I would select from Chapter 4 would be as follows:


  1. Johnny and Ponyboy are approached in the park by Bob and four others. The boys try to drown Ponyboy in the fountain.
  2. Johnny stabs Bob in self-defense: he is afraid of Bob since the attack, and is also defending Ponyboy.
  3. Johnny takes control and they both go to Dallas Winston for help.
  4. Dallas gives them clothes, money and a gun.
  5. Ponyboy finds the abandoned church in Windrixville as Dallas instructed. They hide out there.
