In the Book In the Movie
   When Raoul returns to the room he finds his attorney submerged in green water and listening to Three Dog Night playing Joy to the World. Gonzo tells him to play "White Rabbit" and threatens him with the knife. After Duke agrees and asks for 2 hours to sleep, Gonzo agrees for his normal rate of 45$ an hour, but tells him he can just leave a 100 dollar bill. Duke asks if he will take a check. Gonzo agrees. He is listening to some other music. Gonzo asks for White Rabbit, and splashes the water. Duke agrees and asks for the 2 hours and leaves the room to try and sleep under a cardboard box.
   Earlier Duke has a line in his notebook. Kill the body and the head will die. Then he discusses the state of the world, with both Kennedy's dead and then talks about Joe Frazier as a piece of human hamburger. Duke has a conversation with another reporter in the press tent before the beginning of the Mint 400. They say these same things to each other.
   Duke recalls spilling LSD on his red Pendleton shirt and having a member of the band suck it off. He wonders what would happen if a young stock broker type wandered in a saw it happening. He calls it a red woolen shirt, and the young stock broker does see it happening.
   Duke is stopped for speeding and gets off with a warning after the cop dumps out the beer he is holding. Duke asks how far Baker is, and the cop suggest he eat some seafood there. At the end of the exchange, the cop tells Duke to look at him. Then asks for a little kiss because he is lonely.
   Duke goes to the airport and parks the red shark. He goes into the bar and drinks a bloody mary. Then he trades the shark for the White Coup de Ville. After his phone call with Gonzo, he is seen driving the white Caddy with no mention of how he got it.
