Lawrence is mildly castigated for actually sleeping at a sleepover.

(Strip Number 1288, Original Publication Date, 3 May 1988)

Panel 1: As Lawrence dozes away, Mike and his friends giggle as they prepare to do something about that.

Panel 2: What they do is flip up the end of his sleeping bag with him in it.

Panel 3: When Mike reminds him that this is a sleepover, Lawrence asks "So?" as a means of asking why they did that to him.

Panel 4: When Mike tells him that he was sleeping, we learn that evil little boys tell evil little lies about sleepovers not involving much sleep.

Summary: This tendency of Lynn's to assume that children are always wrong about things makes her look foolish when it collides with her ignorance of what goes on in the world.
