* In ''The Thing From Another World'' (1951), in an awkward romantic moment, a military officer lets a woman tie him to a chair after she claimed he was too handsy last time. He has already slipped out of his bonds by the time she confesses to things and says she would never have said them if he wasn't tied up.

** In the second season, the gAang get caught by the Dai Li when attempting to reach the Earth King. When Long Feng accidentally reveals that the Avatar is among those caught, Sokka points Aang out. Aang, being the CheerfulChild he is, Earthbends his cuffs off, waves to the King, then Bends them back on again. Oddly, this does not clue the Dai Li that they probably need more firepower to keep this particular prisoner in line.
