Randy tells Ponyboy that he never would have been a hero. He would not have gone into the burning church.

"I read about you in the paper," Randy said finally. "How come?"

I don't know. Maybe I felt like playing hero."

"I wouldn't have. I would have let those kids burn to death."

He also tells Ponyboy that he won't be at the rumble because he's sick of the whole scene.

"I'm sick of all this. Sick and tired. Bob was a good guy. He was the best buddy a guy ever had. I mean, he was a good fighter and tuff and everything, but he was a real person too. You dig?"
