NEW YORK (WABC) -- It's like the saying goes, 'If you see something, say something' - but what about 'If you see something, drink something?' That was the case on Saturday when unsuspecting 6 train riders were surprised with a bottle of wine that rolled out from under one of the seats.

Journalist Colleen Hagerty documented the beautiful 'Only in New York' moment as it happened early Sunday morning just after 1:00. Two strangers popped open the wine and started to drink it.

In a post on Reddit, a friend of Hagerty explains reportedly what went down at the time.

The friend says, 'The bottle did, legitimately, roll out from under the seat. The man in the suit, confused, picked it up and proceeded to pop it. He offered some to the man next to him who grabbed an empty Hennessy bottle from under his seat (not sure if it was his) and the man in the suit poured him some wine into the Hennessy bottle.'

The friend also added that the wine bottle was a pop-top, so there was no corkscrew required.

As you could imagine, the responses to Hagerty's tweet were hysterical.

Even though some were skeptical...

Then there was this brilliant idea...

So what's the moral of this story? Always look under your seat, because you never know what you'll find!
