Sorry I can't be too much help, but there's an online dictionary similar to urbandictionary.com. It includes citations.

doubletongued.org

But I can't find it there. I'll keep looking.

A google search of "retail therapy" points to a Wiki article with a citation:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retail_therapy

It's a start.
