        McMurphy: How about a bath with bubbles?
        Boonie: Ahh, that's affirm!

        McMurphy: Real cotton. How about... how about just a little cease fire?
        Boonie: First three requests will take twenty minutes. The last will take a little longer.

      • (McMurphy and Laurette sit in the ruins of McMurphy's bombarded quarters)
        Laurette: Time to go back to the world. Then what?
        McMurphy: I'll stay...
        Laurette: What?! But you just said... you got those five brothers! A family that's larger than most cities in Kansas! Go home...

      • (Boonie leaves)
        McMurphy: I have an even bigger family here. I am home.
        Laurette: That's affirm.

      • Laurette: I could never do what you do.
        McMurphy: I saw you last night. You know in your heart that you made a difference. That's a good feeling. There is the loss and the guilt that comes from feeling good… but still there's the fact – you were there. He had a mother and a sister, girlfriend… and you were there. You gave him a home before he died so far away from it.

      • Laurette: Just one night. You'll love it – men everywhere! You won't believe what a huge dose of unadulterated male lust can do for your outlook on life.
        McMurphy: Ok. I'll do it.
        Laurette: Alright!
        McMurphy: On one condition.
        Laurette: What?
        McMurphy: I give you one night, you give me one night. I get up on the stage and help you - you come and help me on my last night.
        Laurette: Great, no problem! Piece of cake! Deal!
        McMurphy: Deal. Oh, and I'm not wearing one of those short dresses…
        Laurette: Sorry a deal's a deal! Boots too… (pauses) What do you do?
        McMurphy: You'll love it – men everywhere…

      • McMurphy: When are you leaving?
        Laurette: Everybody keeps asking me that…
        McMurphy: What else is there?

      • Boonie: When are you gonna retire?
        K.C.: When are you gonna get rich?
        Boonie: When are they gonna discover oil in China Beach?
        K.C.: Never.

      • Becket (to the corpses): You guys don't care about color do you? Black, white, brown… don't make no difference, does it? Yeah, 'ole grim old reaper. The first equal opportunity employer!
