The most common people who partake in this practice in RealLife are [[TruthInTelevision long-haul truckers, aviators, and other professions that must often spend many hours on the road or in the air, or otherwise well away from proper facilities for getting rid of bodily waste]]. Also, medical patients may be instructed to use a cup or urinal so the doctor can monitor their output volume or test the urine for the presence of certain chemicals or bacteria.

If the person does use the JarPotty, it'll be off-camera. The contents of the jar will be spilled on the person, with the phrase "I hope that was just water" or some variation therein.

* ''ImInTheBand'': During the band tour, a coffee can was used as a potty. At some point, this coffee can gets knocked over. * ''{{Jessie}}'': Jessie falls over into a window washer's bucket. Recalling something he said earlier, she asks him where he does go to the bathroom when he's on the rig. * ''{{Blackadder}} II'' subverts the trope. As a part of their failed attempt to round the Cape of Good Hope, Blackadder and Co. have run out of water and are reduced to drinking their own urine, so they piss into cups for the purpose. Then just before Blackadder takes a sip they reach land. * One episode of ''PersonOfInterest'' involves Reese and Finch going on a stakeout, and Reese recommends bringing an empty bottle along.

* In the ''{{Spacetrawler}}'' universe, this situation apparently arises often enough that an entire line of robots was designed for the primary function of allowing pilots to relieve themselves without leaving the cockpit (and a secondary function of converting waste into food and water). Humor is derived from how ''frighteningly eager'' the resident pottybot is to perform his job.
