Vicky Larson (born April 25, 1957) is Danny's girlfriend (and briefly fiancée) in seasons five through seven. She appears in fourteen episodes, beginning with "Nicky and/or Alexander" (season 5, episode 11). She was played by Gail Edwards.
Vicky is the type of woman who is very focused on her career, and that proves to be the undoing in her long-distance relationship with Danny. She also reveals herself to be seven months, three weeks, and two days older than Danny. They meet, and start dating while Vicky is filling in for Becky (who is on maternity leave) on Wake Up, San Francisco.
Vicky is a kind woman who gives good advice, especially when it comes to D.J.’s relationship with Steve, and helping Danny to deal with it. She also acts like a mother to Michelle on at least one occasion. When Michelle is being quite bossy during her day as "Princess" at Disney World, Vicky reminds her that a good princess is always fair and kind, and that is why people love her. The audience is given the impression that she would have made a good mother, and one can even imagine that she has some of the same qualities as Pam. However, her career always came first. In the episode "Prom Night", it comes out that she is actually seven months older than Danny, in contrast to what she told Danny when she first came to Wake Up, San Francisco – that she was a year younger.
Later, Danny insists that she take a job in Chicago doing the news that she was offered once Becky returns ("Play It Again, Jesse"), and that starts a long-distance relationship that goes from early season six to mid-season seven, and which includes their brief engagement at the end of season six. However, Vicky gets her dream job – anchoring the network news in New York – so she cannot come to live with Danny and his family in San Francisco, nor is Danny able to uproot his family in California. Therefore, they decide to part ways. As they do, he says, "I can't ask you to give up your dream, so I guess I have to give up mine."
After "The Perfect Couple" (season 7, episode 13), her name is mentioned through out rest of the series.
