Scene 16

Scene 16

  • Bernstein takes all his notes about the slush fund to Woodward. Slush fund? We could go for a slushie about now. Blue raspberry, please.
  • The woman gave Bernstein some initials, but she wouldn't give names.
  • They think L is Liddy, P is Porter, and M is Magruder.
  • Bernstein offers Woodward a cookie. "I don't want a cookie." He must be really stressed to not want a cookie.
  • Woodward and Bernstein decide to pay her another visit.
  • They give her the ol' good cop, bad cop routine. Well, it's more like good reporter, bad reporter.
  • She confirms that this episode is brought to us by the letter P for Porter and M for Macgruder. Jackpot.
