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, perhaps they find the idea of [[NatureTinkling urinating outdoors]] disgusting, [[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.

* ''WesternAnimation/LittlePrincess'' has the episode "I Want My Voice Back". The Princess (who's just four) loses her voice completely and cannot talk. When she needs her potty chair, she points to where it is on the shelf, and the General brings down a sand bucket instead, so she pees in 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]]
