BIG Rumble Tonight!
In this chapter, Ponyboy meets Johnny, who is in critical condition in a hospital. Ponyboy wants Johnny to finish reading
Gone With the Wind
. Jonny's mom also shows up there in a horrible mood; however, Johnny refuses to see her. Ponyboy and Two-Bit also visit Dally, who has recovered nicely in the hospital. Dally tells them that Tim Shepard just passes by. Two-Bit tells Dally about the rumble. Dally requests Two-Bit for his prized possession, his black switchblade. On the way home, Ponyboy and Two-Bit meet with Cherry Valance, who says that the Socs accepts the rumble, and the rules are no weapons. Ponyboy asks Cherry to visit Johnny, but Cherry refuses, only because Johnny killed Bob, and Bob was a nice guy who became violent only when he's drunk. Ponyboy calls her a traitor, or betrayer, but later forgives Cherry.

Song-Living on a Prayer
We choose this song because Johnny is dying and the big rumble is coming up. Ponyboy is basically "living on a prayer", hoping that they can win the rumble even with the the slightest chance and Johnny will survive. But the chances are very slim. Also, when the song says, "Take my hand, and we'll make it I swear", it sounds that Ponyboy is saying to Johnny that he is going to survive and he is not going to die.
