This quote gives me Goldilocks flashbacks.

Yes. Those damn bears... I still have nightmares about the porridge. Too hot... too cold... too hot... too cold... WHY CAN'T BEARS JUST HAVE NORMAL PORRIDGE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE?!

What I've always wondered is how can the porridge still be hot if the family has been off walking for awhile. And why would they leave just as breakfast was ready?

It's actually a metaphor. The story is really about a CIA agent during the Cold War. Goldilocks is spying on the "Bears", an obvious allusion to Soviet Russia. The "porridge" is actually top-secret documents -- "cold" documents are of no value, "hot" documents are too closely guarded to steal. The "chairs" are the informants that pass along state secrets(Goldilocks keeps getting them "broken"). And of course the "beds" are her official cover as a diplomat. When Goldilocks can't stay "under cover" anymore, she's declared persona non grata and kicked out of the "house" for good, but thanks to her efforts, America is safe once again.

The end.
