Summary

Bromden is trapped in a fog so thick that he is unable to find his bed at night. He feels safe in the fog and isn't sure McMurphy is doing the right thing by trying to drag everyone out. Emerging from the fog makes the men "easy to get at."

Analysis

Bromden is still experiencing the fog that appeared after the meeting about the tub room. While he admires McMurphy, his actions leave Bromden feeling vulnerable. Bromden knows that McMurphy's struggles with the staff, though empowering, mean trouble in the long run. Bromden just wants to feel safe.
