Other Conflicts:

The rabbits symbolize the weak people such as the patients, while the wolf symbolizes the strong ones, such as Nurse Ratched.
The Fog Machine:

The Electroshock Table:
The electroshock therapy table symbolizes
crucifixion. It is used to do the same as what crucifixion does, which is sacrifice the patients. Also, it is shaped like a cross.
McMurphy finally rebels against Nurse Ratched by smashing the glass window on the Nurses' Station, which then shows that he is serious about his rebellion against her and is not going to be gentle about it. This begins the end to the arms race between Mcmurphy and the big Nurse. At this point his fate is sealed and the disturbed ward in inevitable.
