After the rumble Ponyboy and Dally go to the hospital to see Johnny. Dally was in a hurry to tell Johnny that the "Greasers" had beat the "Socs.'  When they got to the hospital Dally said, "We won,"  "We beat the Socs."  A few minutes later Johnny died.  "Dally swallowed and reached over to push Johnny's hair back. "Never could keep that hair back... that's what you get for tryin' to help people, you little punk, that's what you get...." You can find this at the very end of chapter 9 in "The Outsiders."
