If you drop it off the needles, it will run down creating a ladder, you can just pull it back up using the slack in the ladder.
But if you dropped it many rows ago and just noticed, then on the rows after you dropped the stitch, you would have been knitting normally and there is no slack to create a new column of stitches with.
So if you don't want to unravel the work after the dropped stitch, then just fix the ladder as far as it goes, and you basically sew that stitch into the knitting at the top of the column so that it doesn't fall back down.
In fact I would probably sew in with matching sewing cotton on the back, small stitches etc., rather than attach by weaving in ends. Your choice.

Ah, I just got the point of that question. Yes, on your working row/round you will indeed be one stitch short if you dropped one several rows back and can't bring it all the way back up to the needles. Sorry, I missed the real point of that question. I blame it on too much turkey the past few days. Nothing a simple increase can't cure.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I forgot to address the missing stitch question. Yes, you'll be one short, but it may not matter. If you have to have the extra stitch for the next step, just increase at about the point where it should have been.

I also realized I missed a stitch way back in the scarf I'm making. The missed stitch is on the edge of the scarf. I'm not sure I understand what is meant by putting it on the needles as I'm so far past there already. can anyone help with this?

If it's on the edge of the scarf you can probably attach it to the row just above it. Sometimes it's difficult to work an edge stitch back up along the side until you can put it on the needle. Instead, take a short length of your yarn and pass it through the dropped stitch and then weave the two ends into the body of the scarf. You might also use a needle and thread to attach the errant stitch if the scarf is very lacey.
