Answers to Chapter 7 questions:
  1. The newspaper reporters and the police came to see Ponyboy at the hospital.  
  2. Dally would be out of the hospital in 2-3 days (arm has bad burn).
  3. Johnny was severely burned (3rd degree) and because a timber fell on

    his back, he is paralyzed from the waist down; he is also in shock.

  4. The doctor explains that even if Johnny lives, he will never walk again

    and will be confined to a wheelchair.  The newspaper headline read

    “Juvenile Delinquents Turn Heroes”.  The second article described how

    despite all their efforts, the Curtis boys might be separated.

  5. The police charged Johnny with manslaughter: “the crime of killing a human being without malice aforethought, or otherwise in circumstances not amounting to murder.”
  6. Pony was scared he would wind up in a reformatory or a boys’ home.
  7. Soda’s girlfriend Sandy was pregnant so she had to go to Florida to live with her grandmother.  Her parents wouldn’t let her marry Soda.
  8. Randy said he is going to leave town so he doesn’t have to fight.

    He explains that no matter who wins, nothing will change. Socs will always be on top,

    And greasers never will be.

  9. Pony realizes that Socs are people, too, and everyone has troubles (things are rough all over).

Answers to Chapter 8 questions:
  1. Why didn’t Johnny want to die?

Johnny did not want to die because he says that sixteen years of life hasn’t been long enough. He says he hasn’t seen enough and that he only time he has been out of the neighborhood was the time in Windrixville.

2. Who did Johnny say he didn’t want to see at the hospital?

Johnny did not want to see his mother at the hospital.  He became worked up when the nurses asked him and passed out.

3. Who did Johnny’s mother blame for Johnny being in the hospital?

Johnny’s mother blamed Pony and Two-Bit for Johnny being in the hospital, since she says they are always running around in the middle of the night and “getting jailed”.

 4. What did Dally think he had done to Ponyboy?

 Dally thought he had killed Ponyboy when he hit his back to put out the fire.

 5. Why wouldn’t Cherry go visit Johnny?

Cherry wouldn’t go visit Johnny because she cannot face the kid who killed her boyfriend.  Even though she admits that Bob instigated the fight, and he was a different person when he drank, she still cannot see Johnny after what happened. 

6. Make a prediction for the next chapter. ANSWERS WILL VARY
