* ''Film/RuthlessPeople''. Judge Reinhold's character has kidnapped a woman. Some cops come in to question him, and he excuses himself saying he has a touch of stomach flu. They hear moans and groans from the back room and assume he's having serious diarrhea, but he's really trying to sneak out a back window. Meanwhile, the cops have received a call implicating the husband, so they just leave.

Related to GuardsMustBeCrazy. Usually requires a character to engage in CallingYourBathroomBreaks. A character may also feign a ShyBladder to get away with this. See also BalconyEscape. Contrast LockedInTheBathroom, where the intent is to ''stay'' in the bathroom.

Once alone, Bob makes his crafty, and usually narrowly executed, escape through the bathroom window, an {{air vent|Passageway}} or some other really unlikely exit. Frequently, the GenreSavvy hero is waiting for them.

* ''Film/NineteenFortyOne''. Hollis Wood manages to do this ''from a submarine''. He's eaten a toy compass the Japanese submariners need to find out their location, so they feed him prune juice to make it come out again. Hollis protests that he can't do a crap with them all watching, so they leave him alone on the toilet. Hollis then drops a boot into the toilet bowl and flees when they rush into to see the result. Fortunately the submarine is surfaced, so he's able to climb out the hatch and swim for it.

** An earlier episode had Benson and Stabler inadvertently catching a suspect who had been on the run for thirty years after pulling one of these; she told then-junior prosecutor Elizabeth Donnelly that she wanted a meeting, and when Donnelly let her use the bathroom, she climbed out the window. And you better believe Donnelly remembers it like it was yesterday, because her coworkers never let her live it down, leading her to take a leave from the judiciary to prosecute the woman. [[spoiler:She ultimately changes her tune when the suspect reveals the true sequence of events; she came to Donnelly to ask for her help in getting an abortion, as she was carrying the child of the abusive husband she'd just killed, but she was too intimidated by Donnelly to ask and so decided on the spur of the moment to run away instead.]]
