Lawrence is known to have a wild imagination that usually, if not always, gets him into trouble. He mostly hangs out with Jimmy Barclay ever since the episode 204: Wonderworld, even though he seems to be quite a bit younger, being that Jimmy has babysat him several times. And some times he gets a little upset when Jimmy doesn't let him stay up until eleven.
Lawrence's dad is a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. Lawrence rarely sees his dad. He did get to spend some time with him in Aloha, Oy!, Part 3. Maureen Hodges is Lawrence's mom and a teacher at a school in Odyssey.
Lawrence is currently living in Florida near Cape Canaveral. As stated by Lawrence, he operates heavy machinery. He used to be in the space program, but was kicked out because he wrecked a three million dollar flight simulator. Now he works at a laundromat.
- Lawrence once painted his braces using model paint and poisoned himself. (#308: “Subject Yourself”)
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: I changed the letters in your Dad’s name on the sign out front of the church. Now it says, ‘Preaching this Sunday: Large Rag Boy’!
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: They blow up!
John Whittaker: Blow up?!
Jimmy Barclay: Inflate.
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: No, Jimmy. I'm sorry, but I completely disagree with you. The regular fries are just not as tasty as the crinkle cut.
Jimmy Barclay: You're crazy! They're the exact same thing, just- just in different shapes!
Lawrence Hodges: You just look at the package of crinkle cut fries. Check out the ingredients. You know what's in the list that's not in the list of regular fries?
Jimmy Barclay: What?
Lawrence Hodges: Sodium acid pyrophosphate! And that makes all the difference!
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: A bite of this apple can't do any harm. Just a bite...AAAGGHH!
|“|| Unknown: Step lively there!
Lawrence Hodges: Step lively he says. I'd like to see you stepping lively with forty pounds of chain around your neck.
Unknown: Up the stairs, boy. And no talking.
Lawrence Hodges: Right. No talkin'. How 'bout fainting?
|“|| Jimmy Barclay: Great! Now what do you want me to do, Lawrence?
Lawrence Hodges: I think you should wear a bow tie.
Jimmy Barclay: I'll look like my dad. He's a pastor.
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: Land ho! Land ho! Oh, wait, it's just some clouds. Never mind! Never mind!
|“|| Destructo: Open up, Hodges! We know you're in there!
Lawrence Hodges: Oh, no! Destructo!
Destructo: Open up! Or we'll huff, and we'll puff, and we'll... knock your door in!
|“|| Maureen Hodges: Your behavior has been terrible! You've been surly, ornery and rude!
Lawrence Hodges: Four more and you'll have the seven dwarves.
|“|| Jimmy Barclay: KYDS Radio will be right back after this moment of silence for the American troops in...
Lawrence Hodges: Canada!
Jimmy Barclay: Canada!
|“|| Jimmy Barclay: I can't believe you volunteered us to go to The Electric Palace just as Rick Ranson was about to start, Lawrence.
Lawrence Hodges: Sorry, Jimmy; I didn't know what I was thinking.
Jimmy Barclay: I may have to kick you out of the fan club for this!
Lawrence Hodges: You'd look pretty silly attending the meetings all by yourself.
Jimmy Barclay: That's true.
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: I wrecked a flight simulator...
Connie Kendall: How did you do that? A flight simulator doesn't move right?
Lawrence Hodges: No, not normally.
Connie Kendall: Isn't that kinda like crashing a exercise bike?
|“|| George Barclay: There are five tickets, and only four of us.
Lawrence Hodges: Uh, guys?
Mary Barclay: It would have to be somebody close to us...
Lawrence Hodges: Have I ever you guys how much you mean to me?
Donna Barclay: And someone who would appreciate the educational value of the trip...
Lawrence Hodges: My next school report is on Hawaii's flora and fauna. If only I had some samples...
|“|| Lawrence Hodges: AAAAAH! I WANT MY MOM!!
Jimmy Barclay: I WANT YOUR MOM TOO!!
|“|| Jack Allen: You're fortunate you only swallowed a little of that paint—though what in the world made you paint your braces is beyond me!
Lawrence Hodges: Well, you said to use my imagination to make my braces fun!
Jack Allen: Well, but Lawrence, I didn't mean disconnecting your brain! How could you be so old and not know better?
|“|| George Barclay: Who could it be? Who? Who?
Lawrence Hodges: Oh, come on guys!
Jimmy Barclay: I know! Lawrence!
Lawrence Hodges: Yes!
Jimmy Barclay: Can you think of anybody?
Lawrence Hodges: What?!
