    What To Do With The Girl

    Raoul Duke: Well? What are your plans?
     Dr. Gonzo: Plans?
     Raoul Duke: The child in the bedroom.
     Dr. Gonzo: Oh, Lucy. I met her on the plane. Yeah, she's a religious freak. I gave her a cap before I realized... Jesus, she's never even had a drink before.
     Raoul Duke: Well... it'll probably work out. We can keep her loaded and peddle her ass at the drug convention. Yeah. She's perfect for this gig. These cops will go fifty bucks a head to beat her into submission and then gang-fuck her. We can set her up in one of these back street motels, hang pictures of Jesus all over the room, then turn these fucking pigs loose on her. Hell, she's strong, man. She'll hold her own.
     Dr. Gonzo: Jesus Christ. I knew you were sick but I never expected to hear you actually say that kind of stuff, you filthy bastard.
     Raoul Duke: Straight economics, man. This girl is a godsend. Shit, she can make us a grand a day.
     Dr. Gonzo: That's ugly, man. Stop talking like that.
     Raoul Duke: I figure she can do about four at a time. If we keep her full of acid that's more like two grand a day. Maybe three.
     Dr. Gonzo: Hold on, man. What if I just jump you and beat the dog shit out of you? Would that make you feel better? You filthy bastard.
     Raoul Duke: All right, listen to me. In a few hours, she'll probably be sane enough to work herself into some kind of towering Jesus-based rage at the hazy recollection of being seduced by some kind of cruel Samoan who fed her liquor and LSD, dragged her to a Vegas hotel room and then savagely penetrated every orifice in her little body with his throbbing, uncircumcised member.
     Dr. Gonzo: That's so ugly, man!
     Raoul Duke: Fuck. Truth hurts.
     Dr. Gonzo: That's... argh! Argh! That's argh! Argh! That's argh!
     Raoul Duke: Argh!
     Dr. Gonzo: I wanted to help her, man.
     Raoul Duke: Well, you'll go straight to the gas chamber for this one. And even if you manage to beat that, they'll still send you back to Nevada for rape and consensual sodomy. She's got to go.
     Dr. Gonzo: Shit. It doesn't pay to try to help someone these days.

    The Convention

    Video: YouTube
    [Duke and Gonzo are covering the DA'S convention on marijuana, with keynote speaker L. Ron Bumquist]
    L. Ron Bumquist: The easiest way to do this is for each of us to try to imagine what is going on inside the possessed mind of a drug addict. [holds up a joint] The dope fiend refers to the butt of a marijuana cigarette as a "roach". He does so because it resembles a cockroach.
    Gonzo: What the fuck these people are talking about? You gotta be crazy on acid to think a joint looks like a goddamn cockroach.
    Bumquist: You will notice that I have distinguished four distinct types of being in the cannabis and marijuana society. They are "cool", "groovy", "hip" and "square". Seldom, if ever, does one aspire to be "square".
    Gonzo: This is a fucking nightmare, man.
    Bumquist: If he can figure out what is "happening", he can rise one notch to become "hip", and if he can convince himself to approve of what is "happening", he can become "groovy". [ominously] Groovy! And then he raise himself to the rank of "cool". He can become one of those... "cool guys".
    D.A.: Dr. Bumquist, do you think the anthropologist Margaret Mead's strange behavior of late can be explained by a private marijuana addiction?
    Duke: Good question!
    Bumquist: I'm not really sure I can answer that. But what I can tell you is that if Margaret Mead, at her age, smoked grass...she'd have one hell of a trip! [laughs hysterically; the seated DA's follow suit]
