Panel 2: Guess it was. But Lawrence's outline was recognizable, while Howard looked like a Fisher-Price Li'l Person. Symbolic, of course.
Panel 3: And more sexist remarks. Imagine a woman being able to use an adding machine!
Panel 4: How did he get behind the counter so fast?
Panel 5: GASP!
So how's this going to go? We know it can't go too far and still be in the daily papers. Is Lawrence still in the building? Don't be afraid to raise your voice and say "TAKE. YOUR HANDS. OFF ME." Failing that, just go for the nuts. With your hand; you don't have to risk being pushed off balance while using your foot or knee. Don't try to talk him out of it, for cryin' out loud. You don't even have to win a fight; you only have to get away.
I don't have a problem with Lawrence or Nick intervening, as long as it's a result of Liz being savvy enough to sound an alarm. This just better not be resolved by
