Surely, immediately after the plane crash any survivors would be fretful for their life. Rosenblatt claimed that this ‘man in the water’ had a duty that needed to be fulfilled, and that duty was to put others before him. This man wouldn’t have even imagined that an ordinary flight such as Air Florida Flight 90 would end up in a disaster generating a duty for him to save others.

That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself. This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.
