One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Chapter 16

It's time for the staff meeting. Because of his deafness Bromden is responsible for cleaning the staff room during the meeting, because of his deafness. But he is worried that someone will suspect him because he raised his hand for McMurphy. One of the aides comes over and gets him, and things seem fine. Inside the room, no one notices Bromden as he starts to clean the corner. Big Nurse stares at him when she first comes in, but does nothing.

Doctor Spivey and the residents try and figure out how the Big Nurse wants them to respond to McMurphy's rebellion. They hit upon considering him dangerous and sending him to Disturbed. When Nurse Ratched finally speaks, however, she disagrees. In order for things on the ward to go back to normal, McMurphy should be kept where he is. Eventually, his actions will change, and the men will lose interest.
