Roger Swanson (Scott) is a smooth-talking Madison Avenue copywriter, with an uncanny ability to cold-read people. When he isn't applying his skill by "reminding consumers that they're missing something from their lives" and that his client's product is "the only thing that can fill the void", he will be applying it to women in bars. Despite his ability, Roger's cynicism and downright insulting characterizations of the women around him are a turn-off, such that he is HoistByHisOwnPetard.
