Image for Classic Scene #21: One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

I'd like to know why none of the guys never told me that you, Miss Ratched, and the doctors could keep me here until you're good and ready to turn me loose. That's what id like to know. You heard me, Harding. You let me go on hasslin' Nurse Ratched here known' how much I had to lose, and you never told me nothin'. You can go home any time you want? You're bullshittin' me. He's bullshittin' me right? Cheswick, you're voluntary? Scanlon? Billy, for chrissakes you must be committed, right? oh... oh... gaw... I mean, you're just a young kid, what're you doin' here? You oughta be out in a convertible, why, birddoggin' chicks and bangin' beaver. What're you doin' here? For chrissake! What's funny about that? Jesus! I mean, you guys do nothing but complain about how you can't stand it in this place here and then you haven't got the guts just to walk out? I mean, what do you think you are for chissake, 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. Jesus Christ, I can't even believe it!
