The author of The Parasite makes fun of the question, still very much alive in his time, and of both parties to it by arguing that Parasitic is an art by the terms of the Stoic definition, and a better one than either rhetoric or philosophy. No other pursuit could have served his turn better than that of the parasite, who made a business of sponging, who, along with the cook, had been a standing butt of the New Comedy, and now had become the rival of the philosopher and the rhetorician for the favour of rich patrons.

The turning point comes midway through when the Parks leave on a camping trip, packing up their Range Rover, outdoor projector included. The slapstick becomes more violent, the stakes more naked, the laughs more terrifying and cruel.
