* Subverted in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' - during a chase with a HYDRA agent who assassinates Dr. Erskine and then runs away, Steve Rogers (after receiving the Super Soldier Serum) chases down the agent. The agent tries to distract him by [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy throwing a child into the river]], but the child, as it turns out, can swim, and tells Steve to continue going after the agent whilst the child saves himself.

* ''Series/TheATeam'': The team is always on the run from the military, but never seem to find a reason to flee the country. Instead they travel the country helping people everywhere, sometimes escaping in the nick of time.
** This was actually explained in ThePilot. They stay in U.S. because they are Americans and it's their country.

** One particular example is in "[[Recap/TheATeamS1E6BlackDayAtBadRock Black Day at Bad Rock]]." The team have successfully gotten B.A. treated and locked the sheriff and his deputy in their own jail, ensuring they will not be able to catch them. They are heading out of town to avoid Lynch when Hannibal realizes that an outlaw motorcycle gang, the Barbarians, will be coming against the town to get their leader back. They turn the van around.

* The Creator/OHenry story, "A Retrieved Reformation", is all about this trope; a safecracker escapes from jail, adopts an alias, heads west, and gets a job as a shoe salesman, and gets engaged to a bank manager's daughter. Just as a police detective shows up in town looking for someone like him, a young child gets locked in the safe. He quickly starts work cracking the safe open, knowing it'll give him away to the cops. At the end of the stories, the detective knows damn well that he's the safecracker he's looking for, but pretends to not recognize him because he's obviously reformed.
