Summary and Analysis Part 1: There's a Monopoly Game


McMurphy joins the patients in an unorganized game of Monopoly. McMurphy, of course, ends up owning all the properties and winning all of the other players' money.


At this point of the novel, McMurphy owns a monopoly on individuality. His nonconformity allows him to "win" where the other patients "lose."
