    • Alice is having a Potty Emergency, and the only nearby toilet is a Disgusting Public Toilet.

  • Inverted: Someone in a pool pees on Alice.
  • Subverted: It is revealed that Alice despite having a Potty Emergency, and looking relieved while in the pool, and Bob noting the water got warmer, it is revealed that Alice was relieved as she'd just been in the bathroom five seconds ago and got into the pool, and the heating had turned on.
  • Double Subverted: Then, Bob's dog comes along and pees in the pool.
  • Averted:
  • Parodied:
  • Zig Zagged: Alice, during a Potty Emergency, almost pees in the pool several times, but eventually doesn't.
  • Enforced: To set up An Aesop about not peeing in the pool.
  • Lampshaded: "Did the water just get warmer?"
  • Invoked: Alice deliberately pees in a pool.

  • Exploited: The dye that turns purple when someone pees in the pool is invented by Bob, who makes a profit out of it.
  • Defied: "Peeing in the pool? No way dude, that's just gross."
  • Discussed: "No peeing in the pool." "Why not?" "It's disgusting."
  • Conversed: "A pool? Here's hoping the characters don't pee in it."
  • Implied: Alice is having a Potty Emergency and doing a Potty Dance. After going into the pool, she is no longer potty dancing.
  • Deconstructed: The pool becomes a health hazard from too many pee-ers.
  • Reconstructed: This leads to An Aesop about not peeing in pools, after which nobody pees in the pool again.
  • Played for Laughs: Toilet Humor
  • Played for Drama: Alice's peeing gives Bob a disease.
