Game Theory and Prisoner's Dilemma

Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes worried that another student might snitch on him when confronted with consequences. Could you/would you use this illustrate an aspect of game theory - specifically the prisoner's dilemma?

I'm not sure this really represents the prisoner's dilemma. They weren't separated, and they weren't given the same deal. I'd say the only way this could represent the prisoner's dilemma is that, because Susie ratted on Calvin, he got into heaps of trouble and she got off virtually scotch-free.
