* On ''Series/GetSmart'' Don Adams was unavailable for the episode "Ice Station Sigfried" so Maxwell Smart's place was taken by a CIA agent named Quigly, played by Adams' friend Bill Dana. You can tell that very little rewriting was done to the script, and the writers simply gave Maxwell Smart's lines to Quigly.

* Both ''Avengers'' movies have done this. [[Film/TheAvengers2012 The first]] one has Creator/DonCheadle's Comicbook/WarMachine absent without explanation (a tie-in comic would later reveal that he was stopping a terrorist attack in China during the events of the movie), and Creator/NataliePortman's Jane Foster regulated to a cameo as a photograph. Jane is absent again in [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron the sequel]], as is Creator/GwynethPaltrow's Pepper Potts, with a WrittenInAbsence explaining that Jane was on a lecture tour while Pepper was busy running Tony's company.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Roswell}}'' does better but still the only characters to appear in every episode are Liz, Max and Michael. (Tess appears in every episode of Season 2, the only one where she's a regular.) Maria and Isobel miss an episode each in Season 3 (as does Jesse, who only appears in that season) and Isobel also misses one in Season 2, while Alex, Kyle and Valenti are frequently absent.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HawaiiFive0'' is pretty much guaranteed to have Steve and Danny in every episode,[[note]]Except for a bit of the second season where Creator/AlexOLoughlin (Steve) was out due to a shoulder injury and later rehab for pain med addiction from said injury[[/note]] but other characters may or may not appear. Kono and Chin are in most, but not all, episodes; after their PromotionToOpeningTitles, Max, Jerry, and Grover are ''usually'' present, but have plenty of non-appearing episodes.[[note]]Of these, Max seems most likely to be missing, and generally has the shortest scenes if it's not a LowerDeckEpisode; this may have something to due with Creator/MasiOka's schedule and the fact that he has projects in both California and Japan as well as Hawaii.[[/note]] If one of them is absent, other characters may mention they received information from them (particularly in the case of Max, who as the medical examiner ''should'' be present whenever they're dealing with a dead body; it's not AlwaysMurder, but it's More Often Than Not Murder). Other series regulars, like Kamekona, may go many episodes without so much as a blip and then reappear with little to no fanfare.
