This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Raoul and Dr. Gonzo go to the Beverly Hills office of the sporting magazine to pick up 300 dollars for their trip. This scene is omitted and they just have money.
   Raoul prepares to leave Vegas to avoid his huge hotel bill. Gonzo has left already. He borrowed 25 dollars and Duke drove him to the airport where he spent the rest of his money on garbage. Then he realizes his attorney has left the .357 magnum in his briefcase. Then he returns to the hotel and cashes a check for 50$ and orders room service. He wakes up to room service coming in with his food. He has the can of mace in one hand and the .357 in the other. He has a Z drawn on his forehead in ketchup. He points the gun at the room service waiter and kicks him out without eating the food. He mentions Dr. Gonzo leaving, then he leaves himself.
   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.
   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.
   Gonzo describes getting the adrenochrome from his satanism client after Duke takes the one tiny hit. Then Duke starts to go crazy and the drug gets on top of him. Gonzo watches and warns him to be careful. Duke actually drinks some of the adrenochrome from the bottle. Gonzo comes over and feeds him cocaine from the tip of his hunting knife while telling the story of his client. Then he feeds more cocaine on the barrel of his .357 magnum and his eyes look like cats eyes.
