* The AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho episode, "[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho052Scherzo Scherzo]]". The story features a MinimalistCast consisting of the Doctor (voiced by Creator/PaulMcGann), his companion, Charley Pollard (voiced by India Fisher) and the MonsterOfTheWeek in form of "the Sound Creature" (voiced by both Paul [=McGann=] and India Fisher), sees them trapped together for pretty much most of the story in a ClosedCircle, in the form of some strange experimentation chamber literally shaped as a huge ring, and is very heavy on characterisation as the Doctor and Charley spend much discussing their relationship and how they respectively understand what being in "love" means to them, and even uses pretty minimal special effects for an AudioPlay as the soundscape for the bulk of the story is a constant, low volume DroneOfDread. The episode even comments a bit on the trope from the fact that the experimentation chamber the Doctor and Charley are trapped in is essentially a huge test-tube, and is even described as being made of a glass-like material.

Almost all {{Clip Show}}s (and, by extension, {{Recap Episode}}s) fit this trope, despite not strictly being an actual Bottle Episode. Not to be confused with DrowningMySorrows, nor with [[MessageInABottle sending out messages in bottles]]. Another cause that happens on occasion is a [[TVStrikes writers' strike]].

strike]]. With the shorter formats, such as half-hour TV series, the temptation for the director is sometimes to make it TheOner as well.

** Another example is ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E5SisterhoovesSocial]]'', in terms of speaking roles, as it is centered mostly on Rarity, Applejack, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie are absent, and Spike is given a cameo in the ending.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Subverted by "Blackwater" and "The Watchers on the Wall", which are easily the most expensive episodes of the show and required more than their share of their seasons' budget despite focusing on one area instead of the usual FourLinesAllWaiting.

*** "The Sontaran Experiment". The incoming showrunning team (Philip Hinchcliffe and Robert Holmes) had decided to abolish the 6-parter format in favour of 4-parters while still being commissioned for the same number of episodes, leading to a remainder of two episodes which had to be produced for NoBudget. The whole story, in addition to being two episodes long and [[VideoInsideFilmOutside shot on videotape to save money]], takes place entirely on a [[BBCQuarry hillside]]. There are four guest stars in [[PropRecycling recycled space suits]], one of whom is even played by Tom Baker's StuntDouble ActingForTwo, and two Sontarans (recycled costumes). There's a TinCanRobot and some props recycled from the Sontaran spaceship sets of previous Sontaran stories. It also has no scenes in the TARDIS. The most notable thing about it is that it was also Tom Baker's first story in which he could adjust to the role.
*** The cost-saving genius behind "Sontaran Experiment" was that is was essentially made using the location filming allocated to the four-parter it was produced alongside, resulting in two stories shot for the price of one. This practice was later fine-tuned under the last producer of the classic series, John Nathan-Turner, and was the only method of production for the shortened, NoBudget last three seasons under the Seventh Doctor.

* The season 13 ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' episode "The Room Where It Happens" chronicles a single complicated surgery from start to finish, never leaving the titular OR except in characters' imaginary sequences where they each try to relate to the John Doe on the table by linking him to past experiences. Only four members of the main cast--Meredith, Webber, Owen, and Stephanie--appear.
