Jones (starts-turns again; attempts to be facetious). Tell Miss A. the early bird catches the worm.
Telephone Girl: The early worm gets caught
Adding Clerk: He's caught
Telephone Girl: Hooked.
Adding Girl: In the pan.
Filing Clerk: Hot dog
I always liked the phrase "the early bird catches the worm." The people in this conversation really are confusing. They repeat each other and work off each others statements. They awkwardly complete each others sentences. One question that really bothered me when i was reading this play was.. HOT DOG.I tried to do an internet search looking up any meanings. I couldnt find anything hitting towards the meaning. During the play the Filing Clerk is always the person the says "hot dog". I have a feeling that the term hot dog is an insult or something rude. Does anyone have any answers or suggestions? I am really curious
