Ricky Don't Lose That Number In a very indirect way, this episode references the song, "Ricky, Don't Lose That Number" by Steely Dan (1974). Vince runs into a girl named Rikki who had apparently given him her number but he never called. He has trouble recalling her name, and when he finally says "...Rikki?", she says "Yes! Did you lose that number?", which is a lyric from the song (and clearly, the title).
