Plot hole: The pictures used in the newspaper article regarding the fire are obviously taken after Ponyboy and Johnny ran away since Pony's hair is blond and Johnny's is short (their hair was cut and dyed after they ran, ruling out the photos being old school photos), yet Johnny's face is free of burns. This would mean the pictures were taken while they were hiding in the church, which would be impossible.
After the rumble, Dallas and Ponyboy drive to the hospital where Johnny tells Ponyboy to "Stay gold" and then dies. Dallas loses it, leaves the hospital and robs a store where the cashier shoots him. While this is happening, Ponyboy goes home were he tells everyone about Johnny and Dallas. Dallas calls Darry and tells him what happened and they tell him that they will meet him in the park. When Dallas gets to the park, the police show up and he pulls out his gun. The other guys get to the park and yell that the gun is not loaded but Dallas gets shot to death. The last scene is Ponyboy writing about what happened.
