** During one episode, a car chase between Homer in a motor-home and the trio of Creator/AlecBaldwin, Creator/KimBasinger, and Creator/RonHoward in a jeep (ItMakesSenseInContext), Alec pulls this trope on Kim so he can attempt to leap out of the jeep onto the motor-home. When he becomes incapacitated, Kim invokes the trope again with Ron so that she can pull a similar stunt.
-->Kim: "Ron, can you drive?"
-->Ron: "Not well...."

* In ''Film/XxX'', Xander Cage, as he's following a watercraft carrying a bioweapon at high speeds, tells Yelena to drive the car (so he can engage in badassery), which is followed by a "WHAT!?", the awkward shuffle to switch seats, and the classic almost-collision with the oncoming truck.

* Done in TheFilmOfTheBook of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Return of the King]]'' with Éowyn's ''horse'' when she tells Merry to take the reins during the Mûmak battle. Which is interesting since ''prior scenes'' showed riders shooting bows and arrows while riding-- while Merry would know nothing of handling a war-horse in battle, and be even less able to execute it.
* Happens with an extra twist in ''See No Evil, Hear No Evil'' - one main character is blind and the other is deaf, and the blind guy ends up having to take the wheel and navigate according to commands shouted by the deaf guy.
