* In Spike's introductory episode on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Angel tries this with Xander as the prisoner, using EnforcedMethodActing to coax realistic prisoner behavior out of him. It doesn't work as Spike knows Angel too well and thus knows he's faking it.

Perhaps you need to smuggle some recognizable people into a base, or smuggle some friends out of a hostile situation. Perhaps the two of you have just been caught by your enemies, and are trying a bluff. Time for the TrojanPrisoner trick.
