* Robert Culp loved doing this on his shows: ''Trackdown'', ''Series/ISpy'', and ''TheGreatestAmericanHero'' all had episodes he wrote (AND directed). In addition, he wrote one of the two episodes of ''Cain's Hundred'' on which he guest-starred (strangely averted with ''The Rifleman'' - he guest-starred on two episodes and also wrote a two-parter in which he does ''not'' appear!).

** Despite Guest Star Creator/RickyGervais getting credit for writing the season 17 episode, ''[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS17E15HomerSimpsonThisIsYourWife Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife.]]'', he admits that he didn't really write much of it. He said that he only wrote the plot (which was his wife's idea), a couple of jokes and the song.

* In 1955, ''Radio/TheArchers'' had an episode where Grace Archer, the wife of Phil, was killed off. (It may or may not have been coincidence that the episode went out on BBC radio the very night [[Creator/{{ITV}} commercial television]] began.) The script had Grace's fate be conveyed in the final line of dialogue thus: "She... she died in my arms... on the way to hospital," but Norman Painting, who played Phil, suggested the line go "In my arms... on the way to hospital... she's dead!" Suffice to say that not only was this one of the most talked-about episodes of the soap, but Painting went on to write many, many episodes (and the book ''Forever Ambridge 25 Years of The Archers''), as well as act in them.

** And [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury Jason Smith]] wrote a few episodes of ''[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Power Rangers Super Megaforce]]'', though oddly not the episode where he reprises his ''Jungle Fury'' role as Casey, that season's red ranger.
