As for why Sam pretends the 4am visit didn't happen, you all have sufficiently--and eloquently (as always)--answered that one. But I believe Sam is in a sense helping Dave save face, because he seemed to show Dave some sympathy during the 4am exchange, offering twice to wake Maddie. But since David said twice "it's not important" Sam may have perceived this as "Hmmmm...the guy's embarrassed and wants to keep it under wraps." On the other hand, there is an ulterior motive judging from the way Sam looks at Dave as he says, "Nice to meet ya!": a look that implies, "Now's not the time, pal. Don't get me in trouble."
Ok, I'll give ya that he seemed to show something at 4am!!
Not sure I would call it sympathy...to me it was more of this thought process: "this guy knows Maddie...he has flowers and he's standing in the rain at 4am...I'll be the better man and offer to go wake her up, but he's trying to be the better man by not letting me wake her up...but I'm the one on the dry side of the door...I win this round..."
See, I can read minds... ;D
