"Pull Over...."

Raoul Duke aka Hunter S. Thompson (Johnny Depp): (Outer monologue)"Jesus! Bad waves of paranoia. Madness. Fear and loathing. Intolerable vibrations in this place. Get out. The weasels were closing in. I could smell the ugly bruts. Do me one last favor Lord. Give me five more high speed hours before you bring the hammer down.  Just let me get rid of this Goddamn car and out of this horrible desert.  (sees cop car in rear-view mirror) Oh, you evil bastard! This is your work.  You better take care of me Lord. If you don't you're gonna have me on your hands."

Highway Patrolman (Gary Busey): "Pull over!!! Pull over!!

Raoul Duke aka Hunter S. Thompson (Johnny Depp):"Hey, good morning! How are ya? Alright then. Doing very well. (Back to speaking to himself) Few people understand the psychology of dealing with the highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and 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 your about to turn right. This is to let him know that you're about to turn off for a proper place to talk..... " 

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) Directed by Terry Gilliam
