Scene 10

  • Woodward goes into a phone booth. Will he come out as Superman?!
  • Nope, he's just making a phone call.
  • His unnamed source tells Woodward not to call him again.
  • However, that night Woodward gets a note from his source filled with secret codes.
  • If he wants to talk, Woodward should put a flower pot with a red flag on his balcony.
  • He does.
  • Or maybe he's just really into apartment gardening?
  • He meets his mysterious source in a parking garage, where the source is smoking a cigarette in the shadows.
  • Woodward says he's stuck, and he assures the man that he can be trusted not to quote him.
  • Woodward tells the cigarette-smoking man what he knows so far.
  • He's also been hearing about future Fear Factor contestant G. Gordon Liddy, but isn't sure what his connection may be to the story.
  • His smoking source tells him to "follow the money."
