WMG: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Chief Bromden isn't really crazy, he's having psychic visions of one or more parallel universes that have been conquered by The Combine
Bromden's first name is Taylor
He was brought in because the orderlies thought he was delusional for seeing ghosts. He was in before Ratched and the New Orderlies came and pulled on the deaf-mute act for them. He later escaped and took refuge in Canada, before Tangina called for him.
