In the scene where Benicio Del Toro stops the car and has an “attack” with Tobey Maguire in the car, Maguire’s hair seems different. According to Terry Gilliam ‘s commentary on the Criterion Collection DVD, they shot this scene a few months after the scene where they first picked him up, and could not get Maguire to shave his head for the wig. It would have cost fifteen thousand dollars extra to put that in his contract initially, but they opted not to, because the movie was already becoming over budget. They ended up spending well over that using a bald cap and make-up effects, as well as using computer editing to erase the line on his forehead. See more
In the last scene of Duke sitting in the trashed hotel room, the camera moves across the liquid-covered floor towards him, and clearly tips over a candlestick on the left of the shot. See more

Raoul Duke. [ narrating ] 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. [ narrating ] Suddenly, there was a terrible roar all around us, and the sky was full of 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?
[ swatting the air ]
Raoul Duke. Huh! Huh! Huh! Fucking pigs.
Dr. Gonzo. Did you.
