The reason Lawrence dreads Molly and Gayle's arrival is that he's expected by all concerned to transform from 'only child' to 'kid brother.'

(Strip Number 4740, Original Publication Date, 6 January 1987)

Panel 1: Lawrence goes on to explain that after the holidays, it's not going to be easy for him because Molly and Gayle are moving in.

Panel 2: Mike says that it isn't going to be so bad. After all, it'd be good to have other kids around.

Panel 3: Lawrence points out that not only are Molly and Gayle girls, they're also teenagers.

Panel 4: This means that instead of two people bossing him around, there'll be four.

Summary: Again, we have to deal with the fact that Lawrence's life continues to suck. About the only thing that Molly enjoys about this whole deal is taking out her infantile rage on Lawrence and his friends. Also, Lynn took her sweet time telling us the story about their mother and how she took off.
