Steve Tinney:

Yes, in the particular example Rick used, but I think the word Rick was
looking for was "metonymy".

A metonym is a trope where an attribute or aspect of an object is used to
refer to the object.  A synecdoche is a trope where either part of an
object is used to refer to the whole, or vice versa.

Of course this distinction is not much attended to outside the prodosy of
renaissance letters.  [etymological metonym not intended]
