[about shock treatments]They was giving me ten thousand watts a day, you know, and I'm hot to trot! The next woman takes me on's gonna light up like a pinball machine and pay off in silver dollars!
[Puts the two halves onto the table][shows a whole cigarette]If you break it in half, you don't get two nickels, you get shit. Try and smoke it. You understand?
[McMurphy turns around to see Harding smiling at him]
[to Harding, regarding the pills]Here, give it to me.
[she opens the glass window]Mr. McMurphy, the meeting was adjourned and the vote was closed.[exasperated] Aw come on, you're not gonna say that now! You're not gonna say that now! You're gonna pull that hen house shit? Now when the vote... the Chief just voted - it was 10 to 9. Now I want that television set turned on *right now*!
[Nurse Ratched closes the glass window]
[pointing to naked woman on playing card]Where do you suppose she lives?
[loud cheering from the patients]
[laughs]Well, that sort of has always meant, is, uh, it's hard for something to grow on something that's moving.
[pretending to watch the World Series on TV]Koufax... Koufax kicks. He delivers. It's up the middle! It's a base hit! Richardson is rounding first. He's going for second. The ball's into deep right center. Davis cuts the ball off! Here comes the throw. He throws it to second! He slides! He's in there! He's safe! It's a double.! Richardson's on second base!
[McMurphy gets up as the other patients come to see what he's doing]Koufax is in big fucking trouble! Big trouble, baby! All right. Tresh is the next batter. Tresh looks in. Koufax... Koufax gets a sign from Roseboro. He kicks once. He pumps. He fires. It's a strike! Koufax's curve ball is snapping off like a fucking firecracker! All right, here he comes with the next pitch. Tresh swings. It's a long fly ball to deep left center!
[patients cheer]It's going! It's gone! Let's hear it! One way!
[to other patients regarding naked playing cards]"No, no, I'll show you some card tricks. You ain't seen the Spanish deck yet. That's 20 percent more torture!"
