FlametheSeraph : My dad sent this to me saying "This is what all our manager meetings are like"

Deli Sandwich : jack nicholson's face is gold watching these guys go back and forth

MultiMullethead : I love the staredown at the end.  the moment McMurphy realizes that Nurse Ratchet is the ultimate instigator. 

WesternWolf : Nurse Ratchet's lack of emotion is creepy as hell

Things That Are Fast : I think Jack Nicholson was really laughing genuinely and not acting.

Tony Montresor : Why are they always picking on Harding? He's got inTELLigence.

Dissent : Nurse ratchet deliberately let that therapy descend into utter chaos. In the end the daily therapy is what's actually making them all sick. At the end of the clip she gave mc murphy the look of a devil's calm in the midst of hell. If we cured all of the lunatics a lot of lunatics would be out of work.

Caleb Horton : "It's a lot of baloney and I'm TIRED!" Pretty much sums up my life right there.

Enchanted Media : Won Best Picture Oscar for this scene alone.

Alice Marplehorvat : Such a brilliant film. Amazing acting. Jack Nicholson is a genius.

Daniel Crowley : The double layers of Nicholson's acting here is great.

Ramblin' Bob : God, there has never been a woman in cinema who's look I have hated more even when she's not looking like anything or saying anything.

Vera Evans : Nurse Ratchet was a SADIST. By the very definition of it. And perhaps, it ran deeper than we imagine. This, suggested by the Billy Bibbit scene at the end of the movie. Louise Fletcher was BRILLIANT.

Mark M. : That young nurse is absolutely beautiful.

oranges 19 : God, that stare down between Mac and Ratched. Intense lol

jmiller05 : Louise Fletcher is incredible in this role. That ostensibly calm and stoical demeanour with total malice behind the eyes.

Mario the Plumber : No other movie I have ever seen has made me want to laugh and cry so much

burgers with goys : What stumbles is this scene is incredible REALISM, that has long gone in Hollywood movies, sadly...

Daniel Ring : Nurse ratchet is kinda hot honestly, anyone with me on that?

Hop : One could write an essay on the multi-layered brilliance of this scene. One of the finest you could hope to fine on celluloid.

Joe Nicholls : The acting in this picture is absolutely first rate, the way Forman layers how each patient reacts to the situation, based on their intelligence is pure mastery

I am not The Walrus : People always talk about Green Mile, Shawsank Redemption, but this movie is a masterpiece.

hopscotchoblivion : 1:05 Man at first I thought he said Marty

mollie ! : the acting in this movie is just absolutely wonderful and beautiful i love this movie so much

ConManliness : Today I went to the museum at the hospital where this was filmed. Pretty cool.

sweetassugar69 : Mancini. ......I'm tired ...I'm tired. And it's a lot of baloney. Lmao

Michael C : BUT...but Ionlywannahelpyou?!

C HILL : Unreal. Sadly, there are nurse Ratcheds among us. Devil's seed.

TheHasanMurat : They are beautiful women, both of them.

terrorofsesameST : If I were RP McMurphy in this scene, I'd be thinking to myself "prison doesn't seem so bad now."

Dan Favata : study Jacks face at 3:45 truly great part

dubstepwolf : this movie is classic.

OmihaitaO X : “I’m not talking about my wife! I’m talking about my life. I’m not just talking about one person. I’m talking about everybody! I’m talking about form. I’m talking about content! I’m talking about interrelationships! I’m talking about God, the Devil, Hell, Heaven! Do you understand? Finally?!?’ LMAO :))

mohamed aly : this movie is awesome

ULTIMATEGAMEDUDE : Harding's trying to explain his point of view to a bunch of dumb guys including Taber. Who cannot seem to understand so they react primitively with cussing. I recognize those guys' behaviour from a lot of dumb people I've met in my life actually. :S

Jason J. Tavares : To be able to fit all of that intense dialogue and expression into a 3:50 second scene is amazing.  It flows perfectly and it makes you feel that your watching a much longer segment than it really is.  I did not get into 70's cinema until about 10 years ago or so and until then I didn't know what I had been missing.  The, you are a real bitch glance, at the scenes end between RP McMurphy & Nurse Ratchet, is a great glimpse into how they will tolerate one another as the film continues, or not.

Live And Let Live : best scene and best movie ever........obligatorily watch !

butterflyecho1 : I like how Taber pipes in and all hell breaks loose.

Daniel Paduano : Amazing actors!!!

IDHLEB : Peculiar!

nycinstyle : This is the first moment Nicholson realizes the extent of Nurse Ratchets manipulation of the patients constantly wanting to keep them unhappy and unsettled and feeling like they can't deal with their lives. Ratchet's intention is to keep patients locked up as long as possible under her manipulative control. A very sad person and a terrible life she leads feeling the need to make the patients feel as miserable as she does. Never ever really looks happy in the whole movie. Except when Nicholson called her Mildred because she (the actress really likes and admires Jack Nicholson as an actor. Nicholson ad libbed that line). You can see her blush. "Jack asked me early on what Ratched’s first name was. I told him Mildred, which is what I’d made up. A few weeks later, we were filming McMurphy coming back from electroconvulsive shock therapy and pretending to be a zombie. Then he looks at me and says: 'Hello, Mildred.' I was so shocked that my face turned red. It’s my favourite moment".

salvadormarley : The actors in this were amazing.

Quick Jack : I susSPECT her.....oh yes.

Milan Borizovski : "yes Allusions, Allusions, not illusions - ALLusions"

fobsternd : the facial expression that ratchet has at the very end kinda looks like Michael Myers

Ilija Matic : William Redfield (Harding) was a great actor... In my opinion he played a great performance in this movie.

Robert Anderson : Anybody realize that Christopher Lloyd's character is committed in his role in this film. Exactly 10 years later he's in Back to the Future, but in BTTF II there's the newspaper that says "Emmett Brown Committed."

Fred Miller : Man, the little nurse sure is a cutey.

Roger C : William Redfield is great in the movie ... and died way too young .....

Phillip S : 0:58 This year Christopher LLoyd celebrates 30th year of Back to the Future and 40th year of OFOTCN.
