In R many graphics functions take an argument add, and there are some
functions (points, lines) which add data to an existing graph. 

Some examples:

plot( dnorm, from=-3, to=3 )
plot( function(x) dt(x, 2), from=-3, to=3, col="red2", add=TRUE)

x <- rnorm(20)
y <- rnorm(20)
plot(x,t, type="n")
points(x,y, col="skyblue")
