One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest Part I, Chapter Fourteen Summary

  • This chapter is ultra short too. And easy to understand. Here’s the entire chapter:
  • "There’s a shipment of frozen parts come in downstairshearts and kidneys and brains and the like. I can hear them rumble into cold storage down the storage chute. A guy sitting in the room someplace I can’t see is talking about a guy up on Disturbed killing himself. Old Rawler. Cut both nuts off and bled to death, sitting right on the can [toilet] in the latrine [bathroom], half a dozen people in there with him didn’t know it till he fell off to the floor, dead.
    "What makes people so impatient [to die] is what I can’t figure; all the guy had to do was wait."
