* AbsenteeActor: Mainly Dale, but Evan and Rebecca have been known to also go missing for an episode or two at a time. In fact, the only main characters to appear in every episode are Rusty, Casey, and Cappie.
** Anyone outside the main three (and usually Ashleigh) will be absent (without commentary) for random episodes every season. Presumably, this is when these people actually go to class.
** Probably the most egregious example is in "War and Peace", where Lizzi specifically says that ''every'' member of ZBZ must take Frannie back for Lizzi to proclaim the house fit (and finally be gone), and the crux of the episode is whether Casey will welcome Frannie back...except Rebecca is ''not seen at all'' in this episode. It might have been justified that pledges were excluded, except several recurring ''pledge'' sisters were seen at the ceremony.
