* Combining this trope with MinimalistCast, ''Series/CoronationStreet'' managed to have two episodes so far invoking this: the first was from New Year's Day 2000 with estranged married couple Curly and Raquel Watts having a heart to heart where she introduced his previously unknown three-year-old daughter to him (via pictures) and the latter asked for a divorce as she had fallen in love with another man and was pregnant with his child (which he granted as he had fallen in love with a [[FairCop local policewoman,]] who eventually became his second wife). The second was between well-known mother and daughter Deidre and Tracy Barlow from 2007, where the latter confessed to killing her boyfriend before turning herself in and they both reflecting on both her actions and their troubled relationship. TheOtherWiki refers to this type of episode as a Two Hander, which is quite a feat [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters in a series such as this.]]

* One from French TV. Creator/{{TF1}}'s long-running popular sitcom ''Les Filles d'à Côté'' ran on this trope, dealing with the lives of two sets of neighbours and the gym/health club they visited. This is pretty much a Bottle ''series'' in which the action took place in four sets, all indoor: the girls' apartment, the boys' apartment, the gym/health club they all visited, and the corridor/lift outside the aparetments. The fact a whole country called France existed outside the indoor sets was an InformedAttribute; none of the characters was ever seen to go outside.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' was a pioneer of this trope. All the modern ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series would frequently resort to series of BottleEpisode when UsefulNotes/{{ratings}} were down (or when the budget was), with a complete list available at [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Bottle_show Memory Alpha]]. A notable side effect of bottle episodes is that they are frequently of [[ADayInTheLimelight higher quality in terms of writing, direction, character development, and plot]] than their unbottled counterparts.

This is one reason why all the front-line starships are ''Constitution''-class like the ''Enterprise'' -- they could reuse both the exterior model and the interior sets.
