One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: World Series

McMurphy: [pretending to watch the World Series on TV] Koufax... Koufax kicks. He delivers. It's up the middle! It's a base hit! Richardson is rounding first. He's going for second. The ball's into deep right center. Davis cuts the ball off! Here comes the throw. He throws it to second! He slides! He's in there! He's safe! It's a double.! Richardson's on second base!
[McMurphy gets up as the other patients come to see what he's doing]
McMurphy: Koufax is in big f***ing trouble! Big trouble, baby! All right. Tresh is the next batter. Tresh looks in. Koufax... Koufax gets a sign from Roseboro. He kicks once. He pumps. He fires. It's a strike! Koufax's curve ball is snapping off like a f***ing firecracker! All right, here he comes with the next pitch. Tresh swings. It's a long fly ball to deep left center!
[patients cheer]
McMurphy: It's going! It's gone! Let's hear it! One way!
