  • Allusions

    • 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.
