Raoul Duke: You can turn your back on a person, but, never turn your back on a drug. Especially when it's waving a razor-sharp hunting knife in your eye.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
[watching Dr. 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.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: [commenting on the song "One Toke Over the Line" playing on the radio] One toke? You poor fool! Wait till you see those goddamn bats.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: You drive. You drive. I think there's something wrong with me.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: I hate to say this, but this place is getting to me. I think I'm getting the fear.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Has it been five years? Six? It seems like a lifetime, the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. But no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: There was madness in any direction, at any hour. You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: And that, I think, was the handle - -that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: With a bit of luck, his life was ruined forever. Always thinking that just behind some narrow door in all of his favorite bars, men in red woolen shirts are getting incredible kicks from things he'll never know.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
[at a bizarre circus-themed casino]
Raoul Duke: Bazooko's Circus is what the whole hep world would be doing Saturday nights if the Nazis had won the war. This was the Sixth Reich.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: Look, there's two women fucking a polar bear!
Dr. Gonzo: Don't tell me these things. Not now man.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: Hello? Hi Lucy, God bless. Yeah it's me. What? I dont know, I taught that bastard a lesson he'll never forget. What? No, not dead. But he won't be bothering anybody for a while. Yeah, I left him out there. I stomped him. I pulled all his teeth out.
Raoul Duke: I remember thinking 'Jesus, what a terrible thing to lay on someone with a head full of acid'.
Dr. Gonzo: But we have a problem. That bastard cashed a bad cheque downstairs and gave you as a reference. They'll be looking for both of you. Yeah I know. You can't judge a book by it's cover... some people are just basically rotten. Well the last thing in the world you want to do is call this hotel again. They'll trace the call and put you straight behind bars. Yeah I'm moving to the tropicana right away... when I get a room I'll let you know which one it is... I gotta get off. They probably have this phone tapped baby... Yeah I know it's horrible but it's all over now.
[stomps foot]
Dr. Gonzo: Oh my god... there's someone at the door. There's someone at the door!
[yelling]
Dr. Gonzo: Ahh! Ahh! I'm innocent! It was Duke! It was Duke!
[inaudible noises]
Dr. Gonzo: Ahh! Ahh! Don't put that thing on me! Aaah! Aaah! Aaah!
[hangs up]
Dr. Gonzo: Well, that's the last we should be hearing from Lucy man. She's probably stuffing herself down the incinerator about now. You know what we need? We need some opium.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: We know what you're up to man.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: [Beginning to narrate the "Jefferson Airplane" hallucination] There I was...
[Seeing the actual Hunter S. Thompson sitting in the scene]
Raoul Duke: Mother of God, there I am! Holy fuck...More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: Hey honkies. You guys wanna buy some heroin? Goddamnit, I'm serious. I want to sell you some pure fucking smack! This is the real stuff! I just got back from Vietnam. Ahahaha... scag! I wanna sell you some pure fucking smack... Pure... fuck...
Man in Car: Goddammit you bastards! Pull over! I'll kill you I'll kill you! Pull over, come on!More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: Come on you fiend!More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: Music, man. Put that tape on.
Raoul Duke: What tape?
Dr. Gonzo: Jefferson Airplane, "White Rabbit". I need a rising sound.
Raoul Duke: You're doomed. I'm leaving here in two hours and then they're going to come up here and beat the mortal shit out of you with big saps. Right there in that fucking tub.
Dr. Gonzo: [Splashes and screams]
Raoul Duke: Alright, I'll do it. But do me one last favor, will you. Can you give me two hours? That's all I ask man, just two hours to sleep before tomorrow. I suspect it's going to be a very difficult day.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: When I came to, the general back-alley ambience of the suite was so rotten, so incredibly foul. How long had I been lying there? All these signs of violence. What had happened? There was evidence in this room of excessive consumption of almost every type of drug known to civilized man since 1544 AD. What kind of addict would need all these coconut husks and crushed honeydew rinds? Would the presence of junkies account for all these uneaten french fries? These puddles of glazed ketchup on the bureau? Maybe so. But then why all this booze? And these crude pornographic photos smeared with mustard that had dried to a hard yellow crust? These were not the hoofprints of your average God-fearing junky. It was too savage. Too aggressive.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Dr. Gonzo: I have to go.
Raoul Duke: Go?
Dr. Gonzo: Yes. Leave the country. Tonight.
Raoul Duke: Calm down. You'll be straight in a few hours.
Dr. Gonzo: No. This is serious. One more hour in this town and I'll kill somebody!More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: If the pigs were gathering in Vegas, I felt the drug culture should be represented as well. And there was a certain bent appeal in the notion of running a savage burn on one Las Vegas hotel, and then just wheeling across town and checking into another. Me and a thousand ranking cops from all over America. Why not? Move confidently into their midst.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn animals?More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: 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.
Raoul Duke: 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:
Raoul Duke: Holy Jesus. What are these goddamn animals?
Raoul Duke: [Swatting the air] Huh! Huh! Huh! Fucking pigs.
Dr. Gonzo: Did you say something?
Raoul Duke: Hm? Never mind. It's your turn to drive.
Raoul Duke: No point in mentioning these bats, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon enough.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: A drug person can learn to cope with things like seeing their dead grandmother crawling up their leg with a knife in her teeth. But no one should be asked to handle this trip.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker signal that says you are about to turn right. This is to let him know you're pulling off for a proper place to talk. It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
Raoul Duke: There was only one road back to L.A. - U.S. Interstate 15. Just a flat-out high speed burn through Baker and Barstow and Berdoo. Then onto the Hollywood Freeway, and straight on into frantic oblivion. Safety. Obscurity. Just another freak, in the freak kingdom.More Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] Movie: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [06/12/2007 12:06:00]
