Men in suits break into the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate hotel. Suits don't seem to be good burglar attire. Were they in too big a hurry to change into a comfy ski mask after a hard day at the office?
One of the men radios another group, and tells them, "We're home."
Plainclothes cops are called to the scene.
When the cops arrive, a man across the street from the hotel radios the burglars, informing them of the police presence.
He tells them to be quiet, then he keeps radioing them asking if they're there. (No, you told them to be silent.)
As the cops search the suite, the men in suits run and hide.
They must never have played Sardines as kids, because they all try to hide under one desk and get caught.
