In "The Outsiders," chapter five, Ponyboy and Johnny Cade have run away to Jay Mountain after accidentally Bob.  While they are "hiding out" Johnny asks Ponyboy to read out loud from "Gone With The Wind."  Johnny's favorite part of the novel involves the Southern Gentlemen.  He thinks they are very "gallant."  He says he especially enjoys the part where they prepare to ride off to war, facing certain death.  Johnny thinks that these guys really remind him of Dally.  He considers Dally to be gallant.
