Max Sauberman Ms. Tipiere American Literature Acc. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Chapters 19-22 Notes Sefelt: Sefelt has an epileptic fit while on line for lunch. As the orderlies and Ratched get him under control, Ratched smilingly points out that Sefelt has been claiming that he had no more need for medication. Frederickson gets upset and accuses Ratched of trying to crucify Sefelt. Nurse Ratched says Sefelt hasn’t been swallowing his Dilantin, but everyone knows, including Ratched, that he holds his capsules in his mouth and gives them to Frederickson later. Frederickson is also epileptic, and likes having a double dose, while Sefelt likes going without the medicine. Frederickson: Nurse Ratched asks Frederickson if taking the medication isn’t better than what Sefelt suffered. Chief describes Sefelt’s jerking around as similar to the way that men jerk around when they are subjected to electroshock therapy in the Shock Shop. When she leaves, Frederickson shivers and says he’s not sure why he got so mad at Ratched. McMurphy asks what the big deal about the medicine is if it prevents seizures. Frederickson shows how the Dilantin causes a person’s gums to rot. Scanlon walks away saying “damned if you do and if you don’t”. McMurphy looks at Sefelt, and sees what he means. Control returning: The system of control in the ward is coming back into place. Whatever changed when McMurphy arrived is almost fixed.
