In Chapter Six, Chief Bromden's suggestion that Nurse Ratched can control the clocks at the ward reveals his paranoia. At the same time, his suggestion provides a sense of the thoroughness with which Nurse Ratched has enacted her domination. Controlling time in this way seems entirely consistent with her controlling character.
