Proctor's dialogue refers to his opinion that Parris is not genuine..... he believes that Parris is using his position to attain wealth at the expense of hos parishioners. He sees Parris as a servant to himself..... not a servant of God. The dialogue also supports the larger theme of the play, in which, Parris is a symbol of authority, and Proctor is the symbol of dissent.
