What is a Bottle?


A bottle is a narrow-necked, impermeable container of glass, clay, plastic or other material in various shapes and sizes that stores or transports liquids and semiliquids. It is typically sealed at the mouth, with a stopper or closure, or by induction sealing. The lower portion of the neck (or the upper finish part, collar) is also sometimes referred to as a neck or top.

When someone says that they have “bottled it up,” they mean that they are repressing their emotions or holding them inside. This can be a negative thing, as it can lead to depression or anxiety. If you are feeling that way, you may want to consider therapy or medication to help ease those feelings and get your life back on track.

Bottle is also an adjective that means: 1. a small, clear glass bottle with a special rubber part at the top through which babies suck their milk; 2. an episode of a television show that takes place mainly on one set and only features the main cast members; 3. a device used in an experiment to control variables; 4. an attempt to keep something hidden or secret; 5. a person who keeps their feelings to themselves; 6. an expression of courage or determination; 7. pluck (informal), guts (informal), mettle, spirit, fortitude, firmness, coolness, grit; 8. a sign that a series has reached its peak or is “jumping the shark”

A television producer will often use a bottle episode when they are running out of ideas for episodes. Using one set and only the main cast members means that the production is much cheaper and faster to make than an episode that requires elaborate sets or extensive special effects.

The term is taken from the Star Trek series, which often filmed their more dramatic or serious episodes on a single, pre-built set called a “bottle.” The episodes can be a great way for shows to save money and still tell an interesting story.

A bottle episode can also be an effective way to focus on character development, as the story can be told more easily without having to switch between a lot of different locations. However, it’s important to remember that it is still a form of storytelling, and shouldn’t be used as a substitute for more complicated stories.
