[IPython-User] How to reuse a plot in the notebook

Is there any way to reuse plots in the notebook?

For example if I generate a plot in a cell like this:

 >>> plt.plot(x,y)

and I want to reuse this plot in a new cell later, or add a new plot on 
top of it,  I generally do:

 >>> plt.plot(x,y) + plt.plot(x,y2)

but it seems to redundant to me. Is there any better way, something like

 >>> myplot1 = plt.plot(x,y)

Thanks in advance
