Added DiffLines:

* HideYourPregnancy: The reasoning behind Meredith's liver transplant storyline in Season Six–it was a procedure that would require a lot of bedrest for the character and to get Ellen Pompeo off her feet in real life (Shonda Rhimes has stated she was ''very'' pregnant while those episodes were being filmed).
** Also Chyler Leigh (Lexie)'s overeating during Season 5. It was a bit of an in-joke with the cast.
** Jessica Capshaw had pregnancies hidden in early season seven, late season eight/early nine, and late season twelve. For the first, her character was sent to Africa for two episodes to explain her absence.
** Sarah Drew's pregnancy was also hidden in season eight, since her character was a virgin.

** Not to mention that Gary Clark was previously in charge of protecting [[Series/TheWestWing President Bartlett]], not shooting people.
*** In addition the Chief was the Mayor of DC on ''The West Wing''.

* TheCastShowoff: Dr. Bailey (played by former Broadway actress Chandra Wilson) sings "God Bless the Child" to her baby son in a season 3 episode. The season 7 musical episode gives almost everyone a chance to sing, but naturally the episode centers around the other Broadway veteran in the cast, Sara Ramirez (Callie).
* ContractualImmortality:
** Notably averted by Isaiah Washington, who plays Dr. Burke. Washington was fired from the set for making homophobic comments towards T.R. Knight (George O'Malley), who is gay in real life. This was worked into the script: [[spoiler:Burke leaves Cristina at the altar and doesn't even have the guts to come back to get his own things, sending his mother in his stead]].
** Season 5 ended with two characters ([[spoiler:George and Izzie]]) on the brink of death. During the summer hiatus, it became common knowledge that one of those actors ([[spoiler:George's]]) has not had their contract renewed... and sure enough, when Season 6 picked back up, that character had died.
** The previews for season 8's finale promised that one of six doctors would die in a 'plane crash. Since the actors for Meredith, Derek, Cristina, and Mark were all confirmed to have contract renewals prior, that meant only Lexie or Arizona could fit this. [[spoiler: It turned out to be the former]].
*** ZigZagged two episodes later when one of the renewed-contract characters ([[spoiler:specifically, Mark]]) checked out after only two more episodes.
