Ever since that online "'Lost' Experience" tried to splain away "the Numbers", they have not had as much prominence in the TV series. (From Lostpedia: "It has been revealed in The Lost Experience that these six numbers are the core values of the Valenzetti Equation, a mathematical formula designed to predict the end of humanity. The numbers in actuality are said to represent human and environmental factors in the equation (given numerical form), though their precise meaning is uncertain.")

But still they are universal, and when we're talking about the Toobworld concept, "universal" means that they will show up in other TV shows, not just 'Lost'. Sometimes deliberately, as was the case in 'Veronica Mars', (maybe in 'Heroes' as well), or just as a fluke (as was the case with that 'Rosemary & Thyme connection yesterday).

So they may not be appearing on 'Lost' as much anymore, but Toobworld Central will continue looking for the Numbers in other programs.....

Take for instance, 'Coupling'....
For reasons unknown, the Numbers - at least the numeral "8" - is exerting its influence over the cast in their favorite hangout. And here we see Patrick the pole-vaulter donkey sharing the scene with it......
