* TheOtherDarrin ** Catherine/Pink a la Mode. The original actress left during the production of episode 3. This unfortunately happened before they could record the ADR so there is a jarring difference between her out-of-suit and in-suit lines. Starting episode 4, Catherine was played by a new actress who looked nothing like her... complete with a new costume.
