Stand not on one's own two feet
A character has an injury to the foot or ankle, or loses a shoe, or otherwise is unable to walk properly. This can create a useful dramatic need for closeness between two characters, perhaps mean the hero and heroine are seen together in the same car creating misunderstandings. The physical contact necessary for bandaging an ankle can hint towards more intimate physical contact later.
