This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Before going into the Circus Circus, Duke and Gonzo huff some ether from a soaked kleenex. They soak a small american flag and huff the ether from that.
   Duke recalls the encounter with the maid after he brings Gonzo to the airport. This is shown during Duke's time after waking up with the tape recorder wrapped around his face.
   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.
   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.
   Duke tells Gonzo to take a shower. He says he will be back in 20 minutes. He just leaves.
