Unlike the quotes that appear at the start of most episodes, the quote that opens this one, "History is the nightmare from which I am trying to awake," is not from a folk story or Grimm fairy tale. It's an only slightly altered version of one of the most famous quotations from James Joyce's _Ulysses_, episode two, which runs: "History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake." The speaker, Stephen Dedalus, is generally regarded as a stand-in for young Joyce, and is also the protagonist of his earlier novel, _A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man_. See more
