Tricked into volunteering scene

Recently saw a scene in a new show where a volunteer out of a group was needed and most of the group (except one) 'stepped back' so that the one who didn't step back would be seen as having stepped forward.

It got me thinking of older shows/movies where this happens and I have this one in my head that I can't quite place.  What I recall is this group (of four people maybe) and one of them had a plan to 'step back' and put his arm in front of someone else to get them to step back with them, leaving a friend of his to look like a volunteer.  Considering that the ones who stepped back are usually at odds with each other (and the one who encouraged the others to do it was a friend of the 'volunteer'), it was a rather amusing scene.  I believe this happened in a situation where they were either being held captive, or were up for some sort of harsh physical/combat training.

I know it's been awhile since I saw this, though I believe it's something that came out in the last two decades, so maybe between 5 and 20 years ago.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
