This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Raoul has the notion to sign the Red Shark over to the Okie hitchhiker and fly to Miami and keep going. But he has plans for the car. He would like to do some drag racing on the strip. This isn't talked about.
   After throwing the grapefruit into the tub and running out of the bathroom, Duke grabs his kit bag and fetches his mace and threatens to spray Dr. Gonzo with it. The can of mace is sitting on a table and Duke grabs it. As Dr. Gonzo comes out of the bathroom, Duke grabs a megaphone and uses it to deliver his threat about mace.
   Duke goes to his room in the Flamingo and opens the door. It swings open and hits Lucy. He describes her has looking like a pit bull and wearing a shapeless blue smock. Duke moves past her and sees his attorney stark naked in the bathroom door. Lucy looks ready to attach so Duke reaches into his leather satchel ready to spray her with mace. He opens the door and goes inside. Lucy grabs him by the legs and drops him to the floor and starts biting his leg. She is wearing jean shorts and a white top. Christina Ricci would never be compared to a pit bull. Gonzo is standing in the bathroom wearing a orange and purple mu-mu. Duke doesn't have his satchel, and make no move for the mace.
   As the Red Shark is being delivered and Duke thinks he is about to escape, the front desk clerk yells out to him. He sags, but then the clerk gives him the telegram from Gonzo about attending the Narcotics seminar. He curses and then lets the clerk know he understands and everything will be okay. He gets in the car and is driving off as the clerk yells out to him. He gives him the telegram, but he doesn't read it. He drives off.
   Dr. Gonzo pulls over and is having an attack. Raoul says "We can't stop here! This is bat country!" Raoul just asks what is wrong.
