There's a lot of what I think is sexual frustration between Travis and Arden or they just totally hate each other, "that's just it, Arden. I'm not a strange man. You and me have lived in this tiny hick town all our lives. We go to the same church, for Christ's sake. We're even friends with some of the same people... although certainly not at the same time. All I'm saying is, drop the kidnapped princess act and let's be like normal people for tonight. Okay?" Travis is also a sensitive guy with lots of wisdom for Arden, "if you gave away all your money, it might help a few people for a little while, but this world would still be a shitty place to live with tough breaks and hard times everywhere you turn. Just be glad you've got what you've got and do your best to be a good person. No sense feeling guilty." He's also flirtatious, "he turned around and grinned. "I look pretty good out of it too, if you care to come find out." He's cocky, "its obvious," said Travis, "that since your pride won't allow you to admit your love for me, your confounded emotions are manifesting themselves in frequent outbursts of anger and frustration."
