This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Dr. Gonzo is naked in the closet vomiting into his shoe when the maid comes in. He tackles her. He is wearing his robe and pajamas and vomiting on everything.
   Duke drives Gonzo to the airport at the last minute. On the drive to the airport they see Lucy crossing the street and slam on the brakes and start screaming and drive the other way.
   Duke pulls in behind a van when he drops Gonzo at the plane so they can't see him. He drives right up to the plane and waits while the doctor gets out.
   Duke recalls the encounter with the maid after he brings Gonzo to the airport. This is shown during Duke's time after waking up with the tape recorder wrapped around his face.
   Duke goes to the airport and drops off the whale, then boards a flight home. He drives the Whale back to LA.
