Uh-oh, PottyEmergency! But for one reason or another, a toilet isn't available. Perhaps they're on a wacky road trip, perhaps they're locked in a room, [[AntiPoopSocking perhaps even because they refuse to quit playing a certain video game]]. Whatever the reason, a proper trip to a bathroom is not available. Instead, some other container, usually a jar, is offered. Usually, the person will protest and say they'll hold it.

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. That said, '''Administrivia/NoRealLifeExamplesPlease''' [[noreallife]]

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

* In ''Film/ManOfSteel'', Lois is covering a military expedition on Ellesmere Island, miles from anywhere. Upon finding her "room" is just a cot in a storage room -
--> '''Lois''': What if I need to tinkle?
--> '''Colonel Hardy''': There's a bucket in the corner.
* In ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'', Senator June Finch refutes Lex's argument that him creating Kryptonite weapons is merely a "deterrent" using a colourful metaphor "Take a bucket of piss and call it Granny's Peach Tea; take a weapon of assassination and call it deterrent. You won't fool a fly on me. I'm not gonna drink it." During a later Senate hearing, June finds a jar of (possibly) urine on her desk marked "Granny's Peach Tea" [[spoiler: just before Lex blows up the Senate building, killing her]].
