Travis Bickle: May 10th. Thank God for the rain which has helped wash away the garbage and the trash off the sidewalks. I'm working long hours now. Six in the afternoon to six in the morning, sometimes even eight in the morning. Six days a week, sometimes seven days a week. It's a long hustle but it keeps me real busy I can take in three...three fifty a week, sometimes even more when I do it off the meter. All the animals come out at night. Whores, skunkpussies, buggers, queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick, venal. Someday a real rain'll come and wash all this scum off the streets.
Kudos and much thanks go to Mikko for the donation of this monologue, it is very much appreciated.
