Adam is trying to place the geography of the scene, Adam talks about his attempt to insure a 9th car with the company he had 8 cars with, the old story of how they insisted Adam drove his car to them and resulted in him switching to another company who would send out an attendant/agent to photograph the odometer and VIN.
Adam brings up the “if we did it for you, we would have to do it for everyone” logic he hates and has perfect logic with why they should.
