Test of loyalty and duty. He looses his chance to return home to win the battle, or maybe save someone or something, etc.
Scary thing... whoever he does it to doesn't simply disappear... They end up in Stupidworld...

I don't mean that in a mean way, but Chewie wasn't attacking, Parson wasn't dropping the scroll so Chewie could cast it, and Chewie wasn't getting what he wanted. Seems to me he'd have left in frustration anyway, so why did Janice need to cast a spell? Maybe it prevented him from continuing his carnie patter, but it wasn't doing anything anyway, and apparently with the staff Parson is well protected against magic. So Chewi had noting left buy quick talk and attempting to fill Parson with a sense of urgency using infomercial language. Being from Stupidworld Parson should be rather immune to that.
She preventing him from casting the scroll anyway. If the staff only grants say, 50% spell resistance, rather than full spell immunity, Jojo might have rolled the dice and tried anyway. All his talk was to try to make it a sure thing.

So it can be an aggressive discipline. That's been hard for me to wrap my head around. Maybe it's like getting the other guy high rather that punching him. One step closer to figuring out the self-sustaining side and eliminates the need for fighting.
Of course, the Great Minds seem to disagree with the idea of him being a Hippymancer at all (from a page that's only in the paper copy), but that may just be an indication that Parson's abilities transcend the normal distinctions between disciplines.
