Nurse Ratched is threatened by McMurphy's presence, and his influence over the other patients. McMurphy is a leader, and the rest of the inmates are inspired by his actions. Ratched uses everything she can think of to subdue him into proper submission including; threats, punishments, and shock therapy.
