Quotes from the film

McMurphy (Jack Nicholson): [when asked about Nurse Ratched] Well, that fucking Nurse, man. She, uh, she ain’t honest.
Dr. Spivey: Oh now, look. Miss Ratched’s one of the finest nurses we’ve got in this institution.
McMurphy: Ha! Well I don’t wanna break up the meeting or nothing, but she’s something of a cunt, ain’t she, Doc?
Dr. Spivey: How do you mean that?

McMurphy: She likes a rigged game, you know what I mean?
