  • [ Duke Narrating ] We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert...

  • when the drugs began to take hold.

  • [ Duke ] l remember saying something like:

  • l feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.

  • ## [ Continues ]

  • - Hmm ? - Suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us...

  • and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats...

  • - [ Bats Screeching ] - all swooping and screeching and diving around the car.

  • - And a voice was screaming: - Holy Jesus, what are these goddamned animals ?

  • - [ Grunting ] - [ Rock Continues ] # Come on, baby #

  • - Did you say something ? - Hmm ?

  • Never mind.

  • lt's your turn to drive.

  • No point in mentioning these bats, l thought.

  • The poor bastard'll see them soon enough.

  • # Baby, l'm startin' to feel human #

  • - # Ohh, ohh, yeah # - # Hey, hey, Feel with me, baby #

  • - [ Grunting ] - # 'Cause l feel it comin' on ##

  • ## [ Continues ]

  • - [ Screeching Continues ] - Fucking pigs ! Flying !

  • [ Grunting, Murmuring ]

  • We had two bags of grass...

  • 75 pellets of mescaline...

  • five sheets of high-powered blotter acid...

  • a salt shaker half-full of cocaine...

  • a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers.

  • Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer...

  • - a pint of raw ether... - Shit !

  • two dozen amyls.

  • Not that we needed all that for the trip...

  • but once you get locked into a serious drug collection...

  • the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

  • The only thing that really worried me was the ether.

  • There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved...

  • than a man in the depths of an ether binge...

  • and l knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.

  • [ Radio: Female Newscaster ] A House subcommittee report says illegal drugs killed...

  • - [ Tuning ] - # One toke over the line Sweet Jesus #

  • One toke, man !

  • [ Singing Along With Radio, Slightly Behind ] # One toke over the line #

  • # Sittin' downtown at a railway station #

  • # One toke over the line #

  • - One toke, you poor fool ? - # Sweet, sweet Mary #

  • Wait'll you see those goddamned bats, man.

  • # Mine #
