False Alarms

The False Alarms are a group of faces carved on the walls in the underground area of the Labyrinth, particularly when one is going the right way. They are meant to distract the person in the Labyrinth into going the wrong way by warning of the dangers of continuing their present path. Hoggle and Sarah run into them during their adventure in the Labyrinth. One particular false alarm is meant to say a line, but is interrupted by an annoyed Hoggle, but is allowed to say the line despite the fact that Hoggle and Sarah are not going to listen to it. It is apparent that the False Alarms themselves don't believe in what they say (as one puts it, "It's just [their] job".)
