This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   After spilling half the cocaine and eating the acid, Dr. Gonzo take some cocaine with a rolled up twenty down in the salt shaker. He licks the briefcase that still has a cocaine residue on it.
   Raoul and Dr. Gonzo tell a DA from Georgia a wild story about Satanists in LA decapitating a 16 year old girl who worked at McDonalds. They cut holes in her body and drank the blood. They said they were after the pineal gland. As Raoul is checking in with a head full of acid he sees a man talking on the phone. The floor is moving all around. The man is having a conversation and he is telling the story about the Satanists killing the girl and drinking her blood.
   While checking in Raoul sees the woman's face with green jowls and fangs. The face of a moray eel. Her face is pulsating, but not fangs or change of color.
   While Raoul waits at the bar, Dr. Gonzo goes to talk to Lacerda. He returns and has been crying. He told Lacerda about Savage Henry and the Vincent Black Shadow. Dr. Gonzo returns after being gone for a minute. After they get to their suite, Lacerda comes to their room and talks about the Mint 400. Both men are too stoned to make any sense.
   After checking in, Duke and Gonzo go out to the Mint Gun club. They hear the men shooting shotguns and Duke checks out all the different types of motorcycles. They don't go out. When Lacerda is in their room, Duke sees him as a soldier with gun fire going off. Lacerda talks about the different Motorcycles exactly as Duke does in the book.
