Colloquial form vs. "dictionary" form:




Put together, 「わらっていたのでは」 means "if you just kept laughing".

「では」, in this context, is like 「だと」 in meaning -- "if".


thus, means:

"Y'know, I don't get the picture if you just keep laughing."

  • Worth noting that ん is fairly common in regular speech, even as 〜んです, and how common the contraction to じゃ is too.
