Bell: We'll give you this really good plan.
You: I'll take it.

the term can also be used for a relationship when a girl or guy "advertises" her or himself as being something s/he's not and in the end ends up being a shoddier "product" -- a lesser person than was originally promoted.
for example a guy might start out being really attentive to a girl he wants to go out with: lots of emails, text messages, dates, flowers etc... and then once the girl has committed to the guy in some way he turns off the attention and hardly ever calls, no more flowers, hard to get hold of etc...

A selfless act a man does for a good friend.

A guy does the following during a bait and switch:
1. Brings a drunk girl home.
2. Has sex with her.
3. Waits for her to fall asleep.
4. Calls a male friend to come over.
5. Asks the friend to lay in bed with the girl.
6. Sneaks out so the friend can get sloppy seconds when the girl wakes up.
I never really liked Freddy, but once he let me in on a little bait and switch I got nothing but love for the guy.
