Max Sauberman Ms. Tipiere American Literature Acc. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Chapters 16-18 Notes Paranoid Chief: Everyone is watching the Big Nurse to see what she’ll do. Chief remembers he’s supposed to be cleaning the staff room, but he’s too afraid to move. One of the orderlies watches Chief for a long time. Then, he comes over, puts a bucket of soap and water on his arm, and tells him it’s time for work. Chief doesn’t move (thinking it’s a trick). The orderly helps him to his feet and down the hall. Chief in the Staff Room: Chief notices green light seeping out of the staff room. He says that whenever the staff meeting is over, there is green all over the walls, and chairs he has to clean off. Poisons seep right out of the staff’s skin, and he needs to clean up the poison seepage. Big Nurse lets him into the staff room, and he notices her face is back to normal. Nurse Ratched stares at him, and Chief knows she’s wondering how Chief heard McMurphy asking him to vote. Chief turns his back to her and starts cleaning off the green slime, pretending she’s not there. Then she realizes the whole staff is staring at her. The Staff Meeting: Everyone assumes that Chief is totally deaf, which allows him to spy on the staff meeting. The meeting is about McMurphy, a disturbance on the ward.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
