Hitch arranged for the jerk at the bar to obnoxiously hit on Sara.While it appears he just happens to be able to intercede during an unpleasant situation, we've seen him arrange countless other scenarios to bring a guy to a woman's attention. The Grey Goose martini that shows up just as Hitch leaves pretty much proves that he planned it all beforehand.
Yes, I know, different stories, the movie was first, and this is really contrived. This is just a fun idea.Hey, It's That Guy! + Mind Screw = What if Michael Westen's mom emotionally manipulated him into doing the craziest inverted honeypot operation in Hitch's vicinity, just to get him to get out of this cynical, loveless career and actually give himself a chance at love? Michael would totally take a Groin Attack for that. Hell, Fiona would probably even be cool with the dalliance. WHERE ARE THE FANFIC WRITERS WHEN I NEED THEM?!?
