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''.
