Hi, there is also in version 3.0 no Recall[] command. But $InString[$Line] will help you. And SetOptions[Plot, PlotLabel :> InString[$Line]] will give you an nice boxed expression like "\\(Plot[\\(\\(Sin[x]\\), \\({x, 0, 1}\\)\\)]\\)" You may remove the \( \) by SetOptions[Plot, PlotLabel :> (StringReplace[InString[$Line], {"\\(" -> "", "\\)" -> ""}])] and get the labeled result.

Now (ver 4.0), I get "Recall[the line > number]" instead of the line itself.
