This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   In the Circus Circus, Duke envisions a Nazi broadcast 200 feet tall saying "Woodstock Uber Alles!" He doesn't have the vision.
   When the return to their hotel room after the Circus Circus, their key doesn't work. Eventually the door swings open and after a brief hesitation they go inside. The key doesn't work, and Duke grabs a room service cart and rams it into the back of Dr. Gonzo and the door flies open and they fall inside.
   Dr. Gonzo tells Duke that he believes Lacerda had got a hold of the woman he met in the elevator before. Duke is snorting cocaine during this scene.
   The elevator is crowded with race people when Dr. Gonzo has the encounter with the woman working with the TV series about the race. Dr. Gonzo is wearing a black jacket and he yells threats at all the people until Duke pulls him out of the elevator. The elevator only contains Gonzo, Duke, Lacerda, the woman and her cameraman and soundman. Gonzo is wearing a red polo shirt and he pulls a knife on Lacerda and threatens him. We don't see him get pulled off the elevator by Duke.
   When they are in the room after the encounter in the elevator, Dr. Gonzo says “God damn,” he said. “It’s serious now. That girl understood. She fell in love with me.” He ads "Eye contact."
