In one spot, a man, in his living room in his pajamas, is talking on the phone at 3 a.m. "Yeah, I'm married," the man says. "Does it matter? You'd do that for me? Really? Yeah, I'd like that." A woman, presumably his wife, comes into the room and says sharply: "Who are you talking to?" When the man replies State Farm, she doesn't believe him. The woman takes the phone from the man and asks, "What are you wearing?" The scene cuts to a cubicle farm where a male State Farm representative replies, "Uh, khakis." The scene switches back to the living room. "She sounds hideous," the woman tells the man. The man replies, "Well, she's a guy, so ..."
