** Discussed and ultimately subverted in Creator/TimothyZahn's novel, ''Scoundrels''. A captured prisoner being escorted upstairs via [[CallARabbitASmeerp turbolift]] recounts various reasons why, despite the trope's popularity, trying to subdue his captors while in the lift is a ''bad'' idea -- surrounded by enemies ([[GenreSavvy who are likely familiar with this trope]]), nowhere to run, with an unknown fate waiting at the end of the ride. The turbolift does make an excellent place to undo his restraints, though... and the turbolift ''lobby'' an excellent place to spring his ambush.
