A. FIRST FIREMAN: We’re the firemen, Mr. Barclay. (They remove their hats.)
B. BOB (eagerly): Do you like it? (Remembers his plight.) Suppose I go to another hotel and there’s a fire there, too!
C. BELLBOY: I’ve got a message from the clerk, sir. For Mr. Barclay personally
D. BOB: Yes, that is pretty bad. H’m. (To Ed). I say, you really ought to see this—
E. BOB: (crosses to boy) I’m Mr. Barclay. What is the message?
The line from the Still Alarm by George S. Kaufman that has parody is the first fireman: We’re the firemen, Mr. Barclay. (They remove their hats). In literary devices, a parody emulates to depict a specific individual or other targets ending up with a comic effect in exaggeration.
