Making a new and safe environment would not only help the animals, but also put less emotional stress on the scientists.
McMurphy has a seemingly paradoxical character: a hero and a leader, and also a gambler and a rapist… and a master manipulator. When he first enters the scene, he makes his intentions loud and clear. “Yessir, that’s what I came to this establishment for, to bring you birds fun and entertainment around the gamin’ table….
