McMurphy: That's right, Mr. Martini. There is an Easter Bunny.
Chief Bromden: My pop was real big. He did like he pleased.
That's why everybody worked on him. The last time I seen my father, he
was blind and diseased from drinking. And every time he put the bottle
to his mouth, he don't suck out of it, it sucks out of him until he shrunk
so wrinkled and yellow even the dogs didn't know him.
McMurphy: I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
McMurphy: I'm a goddamn marvel of modern science.
[McMurphy is pretending to watch the World Series on TV.]
Nurse Ratched: Aren't you ashamed?
McMurphy: A little dab'll do ya.
McMurphy: What are you doin' here? You oughta be out in a convertible bird-doggin' chicks and bangin' beaver.
McMurphy: Is that crazy enough for ya'? Want me to take a shit on the floor?
McMurphy: [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!
McMurphy: She was fifteen years old, going on thirty-five, Doc, and she told me she was eighteen, she was very willing, I practically had to take to sewing my pants shut. Between you and me, uh, she might have been fifteen, but when you get that little red beaver right up there in front of you, I don't think it's crazy at all and I don't think you do either. No man alive could resist that, and that's why I got into jail to begin with. And now they're telling me I'm crazy over here because I don't sit there like a goddamn vegetable. Don't make a bit of sense to me. If that's what's being crazy is, then I'm senseless, out of it, gone-down-the-road, wacko. But no more, no less, that's it.
Candy: [innocently] You all crazy?
McMurphy: In one week, I can put a bug so far up her ass, she don't know whether to shit or wind her wristwatch.
McMurphy: I'm here to cooperate with you a hundred percent. A hundred percent. I'll be just right down the line with ya'. You watch.
[The inmates are playing cards and betting with cigarettes.]
McMurphy: What do you think you are, for Chrissake, crazy or somethin'? Well you're not! You're not! You're no crazier than the average asshole out walkin' around on the streets and that's it.
McMurphy: Why don't ya shut your goddamn mouth and play some music.
[McMurphy, getting Chief into the basketball game]
Nurse Ratched: If Mr. McMurphy doesn't want to take his medication orally, I'm sure we can arrange that he can have it some other way.
Cheswick: Rules? PISS ON YOUR FUCKING RULES!!!!
Chief Bromden: Mmmmmm, Juicey Fruit.
[About Nurse Ratched]
Dr. Spivey: Well, the real reason that you've been sent
over here is because they wanted you to be evaluated... to determine whether
or not you are mentally ill. This is the real reason.
McMurphy: Get out of my way son, you're usin' my oxygen.
McMurphy: The Chief voted. Now will you please turn on
the television set?
McMurphy: You're not an idiot. Huh! You're not a goddamn looney now, boy. You're a fisherman!
Nurse Pilbow: Don't get upset, Mr. McMurphy.
[Telling McMurphy about Chief]
Chief Bromden: I'm not gonna leave you now. I couldn't leave you this way. Your coming with me.
