Trivia

The book being repaired by Dewey Denouement in the sub-basement is "Introduction to MacGuffins." A MacGuffin is an object that is desired by and serves as motivation for characters in a story but is ultimately worthless, or unexplained to the reader/viewer. A prime example in the books: the sugar bowl. However, the show changes this when Kit Snicket reveals the contents of the sugar bowl in A Series of Unfortunate Events: The End (2019). See more »
