During an altercation with the Socs, Johnny accidentally stabbed and killed Bob. Bob, Randy, and three other Socs almost drowned Ponyboy, forcing Johnny to use his switchblade in self-defense. After the unfortunate turn of events, Johnny and Ponyboy were forced to go into hiding. Dally directed them to take a train to the countryside and asked them to hide in an old church on Jay mountain.

At the hideout, Johnny got Ponyboy a paperback copy of Gone with the Wind and hoped it would keep them busy. The boys killed time by reading the book and playing poker. Ponyboy was surprised that Johnny liked the book despite not knowing much about the setting of the story. Pony added that Johnny was also impressed by the courage expressed by the Southern gentlemen when they were riding to their deaths. In Johnny's opinion, the part reminded him of Dally.

"I bet they were cool ol' guys," he said, his eyes glowing, after I had read the part about them riding into sure death because they were gallant. "They remind me of Dally."
