Rebecca and some guy eat at a Thai Restaurant. Hip, Squiggly Font pops in and tells us that the guy is "Ricardo, Sir Mix-A-Lot's Manager." Nothing against Sir Mix-A-Lot, because everyone knows that "Baby Got Back" is a great song, but even when this season aired, he was pretty old-school. In an interview, Rebecca tells us that Ricardo works with Sir Mix-A-Lot, for the illiterate in the crowd who couldn't read the Hip, Squiggly Font. Rebecca tells Ricardo that music is her "outlet," and her "haven from academia." Rebecca fears that if she went into music as a career, it would ruin her passion. Heh. I used to feel the same way about both writing and watching television. Ricardo tells her that if she doesn't try, she'll always wonder what she could have done. Rebecca says that it's "a double-edged sword," and Ricardo agrees that they are "tough choices." In an interview, Rebecca says that she mentioned to Ricardo that she sang; he told her that Sir Mix-A-Lot was looking for some new backup voices, and she begged him for the opportunity. I'd like to take this opportunity to mention that Sir Mix-A-Lot's last album of new material was released in 1996, so I'm not sure why he was looking for new voices, but whatever.
