Main character dumps male friend to pick up female

Around Thanksgiving time last year, I was watching a movie with some of my immediate relatives.

Near the beginning of the movie, the main male character is with a male friend in his car after a confrontation involving another male and his girlfriend, who chose to leave, on the outskirts of town. The main character has a discussion with his friend in the car about the woman, and the next moment shows the main character offering a ride the women from the confrontation scene with the male friend presumably left behind to walk home.

Can movie writers do better than that?
