    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (10)

      • McMurphy: Come on.
        Dr. Richard: What?
        McMurphy: A drink
        Dr. Richard: Is that your solution for everything?
        McMurphy: Yes.

      • Rick: I didn't ask her to come here.
        McMurphy: She loves you. She thinks you're wonderful.
        Rick: She loves me…
        McMurphy: Yeah, she's getting over it.
        Rick: She loves me. She doesn't even know me.
        McMurphy: I'd say she figured that last night.

      • Dr. Richard: How do you feel? No, come on really, you can tell me, how do you feel? (Laurette tries to speak) Don't do that – bad for the throat.

      • Cherry: How could you find him so quickly?
        Dodger: I asked directions. I always say please.

      • McMurphy: You're back.
        Dr. Richard: What was your first clue?

      • Cherry: Is your brother really nasty?
        McMurphy: You got a brother. You know what that's like.
        Cherry: Not really. I was 9 when Rick joined the Corps.
        K.C.: How old is he now?
        Cherry: 28… ah, 29 in two months.
        McMurphy: He's a man…
        Cherry: Of course he's a man. What did you think?
        McMurphy: I don't know, I guess I thought he was a kid, like you.

      • McMurphy (recording a message for her brother): Yo there! Daniel Patrick McMurphy. Well, it had to happen. Even my brother, mother McMurphy's baby boy, finally had to grow up. Although I'm sure she was hoping for a parish priest instead of a hippie degenerate freak. In commemoration of your 21st birthday I am sending you an example of Vietnam's finest cultural attractions. I trust that you and your commune's esthetic consciences will be properly raised. Love, peace and the American way, Colleen.

      • Beckett: Welcome to the G.I.U. man. You'll get used to it
        Omar: That's what my momma said about the army.
        Beckett: That's what MY momma said about the army.
        Omar: That's what my momma said about everything I'd ever do for the last 19 years.

      • Cherry: K.C. told me to look under the biggest rock. What would you do if it was Danny who was missing or…?
        McMurphy: Brian, Brandon or Connor? I'd find someone who'd turn over every rock there is.
        (a bit later)
        Dodger: Cherry.
        Cherry: Dodger. I need your help.
        Dodger: You should have asked me sooner.

      • Cherry: One just wrote "if you want to find Rick White look under the biggest rock." I don't know where to look anymore.
        K.C.: Maybe under the biggest rock…
