"They was giving me ten thousand watts a day, you know, and I'm hot to trot! The next woman takes me on's gonna light up like a pinball machine and pay off in silver dollars!" - R.P. McMurphy, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

Fact: Louise Fletcher had no idea that Nurse Ratchet was the most coveted role in Hollywood until a reporter told her.
Trivia: This was Christopher Lloyd's film debut.
