Downplayed: Alice is hired as a guest star for a Very Special Episode, and the writers are told to prepare to write her in for frequent appearances. The episode is highly touted for her appearance, but bombs in the ratings. Her character is never mentioned again.
Justified: Alice's behavior annoyed both the characters and the audience.
Inverted: Despite only having a few scenes in a the first season of Troperia Tales, Alice becomes very popular and becomes a full character in the second season.
Zig Zagged: Alice is introduced with much fanfare, doesn't gel well, and is going to get written off. Her brother comes to get her and that is well-received. The execs don't understand and bring back Alice with no Jack and it falters, sending Alice for a new job in East Asia. She comes back in three episodes.
