This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   When Dr. Manhattan and Laurie fight she leaves. Manhattan is alone working and there is no one on the TV screen Dr. Manhattan is working with Adrian Veidt live on the TV screen. When Laurie storms out Veidt tells Manhattan over the screen not to worry she'll be back, and Manhattan replies "No. She won't."
   Adrian destroys half of New York. He blows up Tokyo, London, Paris, Beijing, Moscow and New York.
   Laurie is at Dan's underground lair and she sees his ship is on, so she goes inside. She tries to find a cigarette lighter but hits the flamethrower button. She enters the ship and turns it on. She isn't smoking and hits the flame thrower button because she is curious.
   As Rorschach enters Rockefeller military research center he comments on how his meeting with Veidt left a bad taste in his mouth. He thinks he is pampered and might be a homosexual. He doesn't mention Veidt. He says the meeting with Dan left a bad taste in his mouth.
   When Laurie realizes that the Comedian was her father she throws a snow globe at Dr. Manhattan's Mars construction causing it to crumble. Jon touches her and lets her see her past where she realizes Eddie was her father. She runs over and hammers it with her hand, causing it to break.
