Song: Survival

Artist: Eminem

Lyrics: "This is survival of the fittest, This is do or die."

Lyrics: "Just stop - 'cause I really love you stop - I'll be thinking of you. Look in my heart

And let love keep us together."

Notes: When they all went to the Inn, they met a couple of girls that Dally made upset. Ponyboy came over and made Cherry happier and they both felt something between each other.
