The common theme of friendship in this chapter, and the novel, is the close bond between Pony and Johnny. Consider the following:


-Both Boys stand their ground when the drunken Socs approach them.
-Johnny stabs Bob only because he feels his friend is being drowned.
-Both boys flee in a box car together rather than separating.
-There are some nice moments when the boys hide in the cold church. Pony reads to Johnny. They are both concerned for each others well being.
-Pony worries about Johnny when he goes to the store to get provisions
