This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Duke tells Gonzo to take a shower. He says he will be back in 20 minutes. He just leaves.
   After Duke leaves Dr. Gonzo in the room he passes the man from Life Magazine dictating his story over a pay phone. Then he goes and finds the red shark where he parked it. He takes it to the garage and checks it in and tells them to give it a wax, and bill the room. He just returns to the room.
   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.
   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.
   Raoul describes a time when he lived next to a Dr. who experimented with LSD. He went to visit him and tried to get him to help him get high. This is left out completely.
