Well ... and for what it's worth ... the scene is also
familiar, at least to those who have read Proust, 
because it echoes a great deal of the 'Ouverture'
from "Du Cote de Chez Swann." Young Marcel
spends a lot of time agonizing about how he can't
get to sleep unless Mama comes up and gives 
him a goodnight kiss, etc.
