Ponyboy begins to dream about the country, which he idealizes. In his fantasy, his parents are alive again, and Darry no longer has that "cold, hard look;" he is "like he used to be, eight months ago, before Mom and Dad were killed." Johnny comes to live with Ponyboy's family in the county, and Ponyboy's mother even convinces Dally Winston that "there was some good in the world after all." Thinking about his dream, he accidentally falls asleep. Johnny falls asleep, too.
