Exactly. Mackenzie returned to the show after her initial departure, but after a while it became apparent she still had or had fallen back upon her bad habits and the producers had to hastily write her out. I forget the exact reason why the character left, but I do remember it being a typical whiny Julie excuse. That girl couldn't deal with reality.
