    Desert Drive

    Video: YouTube
    Narrator: We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like:
    Raoul Duke: I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.
    Narrator: Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full with what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, and a voice was screaming:
    Narrator and Raoul Duke (simultaneously): Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?!
    Dr. Gonzo: Did you say something?
    Raoul Duke: Hm? Never mind. It's your turn to drive.
    Narrator: No point in mentioning these bats, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon enough.

    Duke: God didn't do that, you did! You're a fucking narcotics agent, I knew it. That was our cocaine you fucking pig, scum [swats at him with fly swatter] Pig, swine, whore!
    Gonzo: [Pointing (previously shown to be empty) gun at Duke] Better be careful. Plenty of vultures out here, they'll pick your bones clean by morning.
    Duke: You fucking whore...
    Gonzo: (holding up some acid) He he heeee, here's your half of the sunshine acid. Eat it.
    Duke: Yeah, all right sure. How long do I have?
    Gonzo: As your attorney I advise you to drive at top speed and it'll be a Goddamn miracle if we get there before you turn into some kind of wild animal. Are you ready for that? Checking into a Las Vegas hotel under a phony name with the intent to commit capital fraud on a head full of acid? I sure hope so...

    God's own Prototypes

    Video: YouTube
    [watching Gonzo leave] Raoul Duke: There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
