Lori is in the same grade as Andy and works for the school paper. Andy has a massive crush on her and tries to impress her, which often puts him in a difficult place as he's usually in the middle of a prank when he does so. Lori dislikes Andy's mischievous personality, yet for some reason never completely shuts him out. It's assumed she likes Andy back, but wishes that he'd give up pulling pranks and be more mature. She is shown to be very kind but has a tendency to hold grudges against people who did something wrong.
Lori is based on the character Lisa Mackney from the Australian children's book series Just...! by Andy Griffiths.
