    Relative clauses - Keeping the object

    Relative clauses will be the death of me!

    Can any of you more experienced people think of any examples where the relative pronoun is functioning as an object within a relative clause but it must 'remain' in the sentence.
    My grammar books say that it can be omitted all the time when it's the object.
    Is this correct?

    thanks all.

    Only for reduced adjectival clauses.
