Where is Rocky Rococo?

(note: Select or highlight the following text to see the answers given)

>He starts out hiding in the subway; after he robs you, he hides.

How can I keep him from robbing me?

>Really, is that so bad?  You might WANT him to take something.
>Just avoid him.  Actually, spend all your money and see what he says.

How can I discover the alias he's using?

>You need to find some place he's signed his phoney name.

Where's that?

>Hmm, there's a huge nine-story hotel with a working elevator
>that hasn't been used yet; maybe he's registered under a false
>name, ya think?  Would I program a nine-story hotel with a
>working elevator as an elaborate red herring?  Actually, that's
>a pretty good idea, but I didn't do that.  The herring, I mean.

The desk clerk won't let me read the guest register.

>Only guests can look at the register.  You can't register, you're
>nearly broke, and besides, there's no game mechanism for you to
>do that.  But if you've been paying attention to either this game or
>"How Can You Be In Two Places At Once When You're Not Anywhere At
>All" (available at fine stores everywhere), you'll know what name
>he'll believe.  But be quick about it (did you notice that there
>are two clocks in Times Square, and that time only passes when
>you're in Times Square?)

What good does that do me?

>None at all.  By a curious coincidence, "None at all" is exactly how
>much suspicion the ape-descendant Arthur Dent had that one of his
>closest friends was not descended from an ape, but was in fact from a
>small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse and not from
>Guildford as he usually claimed.

But how do I figure out Rocky Rococo's alias?

>You need to plant a marker on him.  Find something he'll steal
>that will allow you to track him.  But Rocky is only attracted
>to money, and not all money is attractive, if you catch my
>meaning, if you get my drift...

I'm still short one last nickel!

>To get 666 points requires spending $1.05...
>If this was real life, and you were in Times Square desperately
>needing a nickel, and you were surrounded by pay phones and
>vending machines, what would you do?
