Chapter 6: How three sinful men, through contrition, attained peace. How Danny's Friends swore comradeship.
Danny is relieved about the house burning down because he feels like it was a burden. Now he and his friends can just be friends again without money coming between them.
However, Danny knows he has to punish his friends a little bit so they won't think he's a wimp. Pilon, Pablo, and Jesus Maria decide to go apologize. On their way, they notice some people having a picnic, so Pilon goes off and makes a bunch of crazy noises. The picnickers follow the noises, and Pablo and Jesus Maria grab all their deviled eggs. They also pick up a bunch of fruit, olives, sandwiches, soda, and potato salad, and even a newspaper.
The friends go to Danny's house, and he insults them a little bit. Then they offer the food to him along with the bra, and he forgets that he's angry.
Danny decides that he won't give the bra to Mrs. Morales, because she isn't as interested in him now that he only has one house.
Danny says that his friends can come live with him, but he's reserving his bed for himself only.
Everyone is happy, and Jesus Maria promises to always keep enough food in the house for Danny as a thank you.
They hope that Danny will forget the promise, though, because keeping food in the house is going to be harder than paying rent.
