Lawrence seems to have adapted quite well to the role of "asshole kid brother with an over-weening need to humiliate and embarrass his older sisters".

(Strip Number 1167, Original Publication Date, 26 June 1987)

Panel 1: Molly turns to look down at Mike and Lawrence and talks down to them when she reminds them that she and Gayle are teenagers and thus don't actually want or need little boys tagging along behind them.

Panel 2: Since Mike is Mike and gets enraged when told what he can't do, he's filled with fury; Lawrence tells him to calm down and wait for them to get a block ahead.

Panel 3: He then defends his friend by catcalling as loud as he can.

Panel 4: He's filled with glee when he tells Mike to run for his life.

Summary: God DAMN it but it's irritating to have to remember that Lawrence is only doing this because Mike hates to be told where he can't go. I thought he was being a jerk for jerkishness's sake but he also has to avenge a slight to male dominance or some shit.
