"Hi, can I speak to Mr. Cohen?"
"This is James from ADT Security Systems. We're giving away 10 free security systems in your neighborhood. We've given away 8 so far. You're next on our list. Do you already have a security system?"
"What brand do you have?"
"Smith & Wesson."
"Are you happy with that brand?"
(Now I'm nonplussed, because he didn't react.) "Yes."
"Thank you, sir. Have a good day."

Did he not hear me, or does he not know what S&W is? Weird...

I agree with the script theory -- he doesn't care what you say; in fact, he hasn't been trained in security systems anyway, so he doesn't even know who the players are. He's a droid who's making $5/hour to call people and read the words on the paper in front of him. When he's done being James from ADT Security Systems he'll switch to being Bob from Acme Aluminum Siding, where he will completely miss the hint that your brick house does not need siding.
