Is everybody listening?

When Pozzo and his servant first meet Vladimir and Estragon, Pozzo seems to be dependent on Lucky only in the respect, that he carries his luggage at the moment, but he has many other slaves and Lucky is not a sufficient carrier for him cf.

Now, the rope enables Pozzo to follow Lucky and is no longer only an instrument of torture as before.
