He frequents the porn theaters on 42nd Street and keeps a diary in which he consciously attempts to include aphorisms, such as “you’re only as healthy as you feel.”

Travis becomes infatuated with Betsy, a campaign volunteer for senator and presidential candidate Charles Palantine.

Enraged, he storms into the campaign office where she works and berates her before he is ordered to leave by Tom…
