Subject:        Shakespeare on Bewitched

I don't know if anyone has ever mentioned this, but there was a
reference to Shakespeare on Elizabeth Montgomery's TV show BEWITCHED
(reruns air on Nick at Nite).  Maurice, Samantha's father, mentioned
another warlock, who wrote "Lord, what fools these mortals be" and
started in on the "All the world's a stage..." before Samantha
interrupted him and asked him to leave.  Indirect, but a mention,
nonetheless.
