    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Robert: "And he went to the cupboard, and the cupboard was bare!"

        This is a slightly misquoted line from the nursery rhyme, "Old Mother Hubbard":

        Old Mother Hubbard
        Went to the cupboard
        To get her poor doggie a bone,
        When she got there
        The cupboard was bare
        So the poor little doggie had none.
