* ''Literature/TheDiaryOfAYoungGirl''. The Secret Annex that the Frank family are hiding in doesn't include a bath, so the occupants have to bathe in a tin tub. But since everyone has different ideas of acceptable privacy, they all use different rooms in the house.

* ''Film/{{Dredd}}'': Ma-Ma is introduced enjoying a MushroomSamba while lounging in a bathtub that is situated in the middle of her criminal headquarters right in front of her lieutenants. Although she's always depicted fully-clothed, the implication is that as an ex-hooker she has no special hang-ups about nudity. Plus, any of her underlings who would be stupid enough to ogle her might find themselves with a few missing organs soon enough.

* ''Film/PlacesInTheHeart'': It's a home in rural Texas in 1935, so it doesn't have a lot of amenities, which is why Edna has to take a bath in an aluminum bathtub in the middle of the kitchen. Leads to a comic moment when Mr. Will, who is blind, comes barging into the kitchen to complain about the kids scratching his records. He doesn't realize that he has intruded on Edna's private moment until, while waving his arms in anger, he accidentally dunks his hand into her bathtub.

* When Amanda in ''UglyBetty'' moves in with Betty, one of the first things she does is move the bathtub in the middle of the kitchen. It doesn't stay there for long, though.

* In an episode of ''Series/GeorgeAndMildred'', the water in the bathroom is off due to plumbing work. Rather than lug water upstairs to take a bath, George decides to bathe in an old tin bath in the living room. Mildred brings the women from her keep fit class home and George attempts to hide by ducking under the surface of the soapy water. HilarityEnsues.

* In the very first episode of ''Sesame Street'', Ernie is taking a bath in a tub located right in the middle of the living room, during which he matter-of-factly chats with Bert. Granted, the layout of Ernie and Bert's place had not really been established yet. Later episodes had the tub relocated to an implied separate bathroom, including the classic Rubber Duckie sequence.

* The (very serious) play (and later movie and opera) ''Theatre/LesFeluettes'' (''Lilies'') has one of these. For no apparent reason, the countess gives her son Vallier a bathtub, but sticks it out in the middle of the woods. Vallier's lover Simon appears and they have a night of passion ([[FanService memorably portrayed]])-- again, for no apparent reason, right there in the great outdoors in Quebec in 1912.

* ''Literature/DiaryOfAYoungGirl''. The Secret Annex in which the Franks and van Pels are hiding from the Nazis in doesn't come with a bath, though it does have running water, so they must bathe in a tin tub. However since everyone has different ideas of acceptable privacy, they all use different rooms in the house.

** The first part of that stereotype was TruthInTelevision. In the days before indoor toilets or hot running water were a standard feature of working-class homes, the only way to heat up water for a bath was a kettle on the stove.
