Max Sauberman Ms. Tipiere American Literature Acc. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Chapters 26-27 Notes Nurse Ratched’s way of winning: Nurse Ratched has figured out that she can make all the men suspicious of McMurphy. All she has to do is ask them why he is doing so much for them, and what’s in it for him. She posts the patients’ financial doings over the past few months; showing a drain of finances from all the Acutes except  McMurphy. The Acutes joke with him about it, and he brags that if he stays for a year, he’ll have enough money to retire to Florida for  the rest of his life. Now they start getting suspicious. A meeting without McMurphy: After wondering about it for a week, everyone gathers with Nurse Ratched in the afternoon meeting, in which McMurphy  is not present. They start by telling funny stories about McMurphy; then they start asking why he is the way he is. Nurse Ratched finally claims that the men think he is crazy like a fox. Billy Bibbit takes offense on McMurphy’s behalf. Someone explains that what Ratched meant is that McMurphy is nobody’s fool; Nurse Ratched adds that he isn’t one to  do something for somebody else unless he is getting something out of it. Then she tries to show how much money everyone’s lost to him. He also benefitted from the fishing trip too, without  spending a dime. (Quite like a fox, she says).  The Acutes discuss McMurphy: Later that day, a few Acutes are standing around discussing the meeting, saying McMurphy’s really a good guy. Harding says they’re protesting too much, and that Nurse Ratched is clearly right because McMurphy has made a lot of  money off of them from gambling, but they’ve all enjoyed the games.

    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.
