Nurse Ratched : So who would like to begin today? Mr. McMurphy?
McMurphy : Yeah. I've been thinking
about what you said about... you know, getting
things off your chest. And… well, there's a couple of things
that I'd like to get off my chest.
Nurse Ratched : Well, that's very good,
Mr. McMurphy. Go ahead.
McMurphy : Today, as you may or may not
know, it doesn't matter, is the opening of the World Series. What I'd like to
suggest is that we change the work detail tonight so that we can watch the ball
Nurse Ratched : Well, Mr. McMurphy, what
you're asking is that we change a very carefully worked out schedule?
McMurphy : A little change never hurt,
huh? A little variety?
Nurse Ratched : Well, it's not
necessarily true, Mr. McMurphy. You know, some men on the ward take a long, long
time to get used to the schedule. Change it now, and they might find it very
McMurphy : Fuck the schedule! I mean
they can go back to the schedule after the Series. I'm talking about the World

Nurse Ratched : Well, anyway, this is no

McMurphy : Great. Let's vote on her.
Nurse Ratched : So, all those in favor
raise your hands.
McMurphy : Okay, guys, come on. Put your
hands up. What's the matter with you? Don't you want to watch the World Series?
Come on, get your hands up. It can do you some good to get some exercise,
putting your arms up in the air. That's it. Come on, let's... What is this crap?
I watch the Series. I haven't missed the Series in years. Even in the cooler.
When I'm in the cooler they run it there or they'll have a riot. What's the
matter with you guys? Come on, be good Americans!
Nurse Ratched : Well, Mr. McMurphy, I

Harding : My turn. Okay, hot dice. I

ten! Perfect. Two fives. …five, six, seven, eight. What are you doing?
Martini : Hotel. Hotel.
Harding : You do not have a hotel there.
For the third time you do not have a hotel on Boardwalk.
Martini : Hotel.
Harding : It costs $1,000 and four green
houses to put a hotel on Boardwalk.
Taber : Play the game and knock off the
bullshit. Play the game, Harding.
Harding : What are you talking about? I
am playing the game.
Taber : Play the game!
Harding : I ain't doing anything to you!
Taber : Your bullshit!
Harding : What about your bullshit?
Taber : Come on, play the game!
Harding : Listen, you keep your hands
Taber : Play the game.
Harding : I've had enough bullshit out
of you. You hear me?
Taber : Play the game.
Harding : What the fuck are you picking
on me for?
Taber : Play the game, Harding.
