This won't be first time I've had to be

glamorous under my husband. [CHUCKLES]

I decided long ago
that I will say how I feel.

Well, if you're gonna
put me on the stand,

I better have my lawyer present.

[MITCHELL] The election
is in eight f*cking months.

Keep your mouth shut, we'll be fine.

Get another wife
if you want a silent one.

They used to like each other.

[MO] You're a good person deep down.

[MARTHA] Met a young couple
tonight, reminded me of being

at the beginning of something.

McCord, wasn't it?

I appreciate you, James McCord.


[MITCHELL] We got a couple
of fundraisers out there.

- My mom says Nixon's dogshit.
- I've never even met the guy.

We got a kind of
special opportunity for you.

You mean you want to set up
an espionage unit

here, in-inside
the Committee to Re-elect.

I think I know a guy.

- Liddy, general counsel.
- Soldier.

[LIDDY] This operation requires

untraceable foreign contractors.

I need five Cubans.

How expensive are Cubans these days?

[LIDDY] They're freedom
fighters, you f*ck!


- [DIANA] Mr. Dean?
- [DEAN] I'll see myself out.

There she is, machos...

our destiny.

[ANDERSON] I'm noticing a few gaps

in your employment history.

One here in ,

and here a whole year in .

You mind explaining what you were doing

during those periods?

I guess you could say
there was times I was doing it

and, um, you know,
times I was getting it done.

You know what I mean, brother?

I'm afraid I do not.


Um, just odd jobs, mostly.

Mr. Wills...

Frank, you can just...
You just call me Frank.

Mr. Wills, I really appreciate, um,

you coming all the way down here,

but I'm afraid you're not
what we're looking for.

What-what is it? My-my mustache?

'Cause I can shave it off, no problem.

[ANDERSON] To be honest,

you're not really a right fit
for the front desk.

Come on, man, please.

Look, I'll level with you.

I've been to, like, ten
of these interviews this week.

I got my bills up to here.

If this ain't working for me,

I'm out of this town, dig?

Now, you just tell me,
what do I gotta do?

Name the capitals.


If you're on the front desk,
you only have one job,

and that job is to make
white folks feel secure,

and nothing makes white folks
feel more secure

than a friendly
public-school-educated boy

that knows the capitals.

Now, if you feel that's unfair,

I hear that the Howard Johnson's
across the street is hiring.

What you want?

[LAUGHS] Yeah, I got the job.

The night job at the Watergate.

Yeah, guy hired me
on a provisional basis,

but that's only 'cause
I forgot Bismarck.

It's the capital of North Dakota.

Look, never mind. The bus is coming.

I will tell you about it later.

All right, I gotta go.
All right, all right, bye.

- Oh, I-I'm so sorry, man.

We're all flaked with sorrow
from birth, son.

It's up to each of us to pull it off.

No apology necessary.

[LIDDY] The whole point
of breaking into the DNC

was to capture intimate
campaign conversations.

And you idiots, you bug
the secretarial lines?


Hey, Gordo. What's up, compadre?

All these transcripts, Howard.


We've got nothing

but a secretary
dirty-birding her boyfriend.

"I am in my posy-pink panties.

"They're so cute

stretched across my little red bottom."

Jesus, I wish I could get
my wife to talk like that.

You have any idea

how this reflects
on the two of us, Hunt?

This operation?
To Mitchell and everybody?


Now, I want to know

which one of you slack-jawed
equines placed these taps.

Hmm? Who was it?

- Look...
- Oh, we have a winner.

I can't stop a secretary

from using the phone for personal calls.

You bug the source, not the ancillary.

Are you familiar with black bag ops?

- You've done black bag ops.
- You ever done that?

Honestly, maybe it'd be better
to find another target.

Hold on. I'm sorry.

Are you the target finder now?

Are-are you the main guy
who helps us find the targets?

Nixon's b*ating the hell
out of McGovern in every poll.

Is the DNC really his biggest thr*at?

It is not your job
to determine the thr*at level,

you dumb donkey.

It's your job to sit by the phone
and wait for a f*cking order.

Now, do you think you can do your job?

Insofar as any of this is my job?

Yes, sir. I can do my job.



We gotta go in again.

It's our only option.

Yeah, somebody's gonna have
to ask Mitchell for more money.

[BALDWIN] I can do it.

You're going to get more
out of Mitchell if you send me

rather than one of the w*tbacks.

- No offense.
- [STURGIS] Oye, coño.

Who you calling a w*tback, brother?

We're Cuban, not Mexican.

[BALDWIN] Okay, okay, take it easy.

- I'll do it.

But I'm gonna need a lift.

Sarah's got the station wagon today.


Of course.

- [BALDWIN] After you.
- You guys are so sensitive.













You're listening to WRBT AM...

[MARTHA] No, oh, no, honey, honey.

If you're gonna bring more
than three pairs of shoes,

you gotta do it in secret,
or else people lose faith in you.


[MARTY] You don't do anything in secret.

- Mr. McCord.
- Hello.

- How are you?
- Fine, thank you.

What can I do for you?

Uh, I'm just here to drop off
some papers for your husband.

[MARTHA] Oh, sure.

Um, Marty, Katarina, would you...

Could you find Mr. Mitchell, please?
He's around here somewhere.

[MCCORD] Sorry to bother you at home.
I tried his office first.

I was sorry to hear

that you were taken off my detail.

[MCCORD] Apologies.

I wanted to tell you myself,
but it all happened so quickly.

They put me on some security work.

Clerical stuff mostly.

Oh, this is a fine collection.

You like it?

Mm, I don't know if you
can say you like Rilke.

There's so much desire
in there and... isolation.

I don't know.

I had to turn before I got any of it.

Oh, well, I'll give it a try
in a few years, then.


Um, Mr. McCord, uh, my-my family and I,

we are traveling out
to California for a fundraiser.

I was wondering if you would
like to accompany us there.

Oh, I would love to,
Mrs. Mitchell, but...

the campaign does have me very busy,

and, um, I am needed at home.

Of course, understood.

I just... um, I don't
often find a bodyguard

that I can have a conversation
with, that's all.

I'm sorry if I overstepped.

Oh, no, no, no, no. Of course not.


Yes, sir.

Uh, I have a few matters of paperwork

pertaining to our earlier conversation.

In the study.

It's very nice to see you again.


[MARTY] What are you doing with my book?

Helping you not forget it.



I-is he, um...

You think he'll be out soon?

I-I don't mean to be rude.

It's just, I ha-I have a plane
to catch this afternoon

for a conference in the Philippines.

The president should be wrapping up

with Senator Thurmond in just a moment.

Hard candy?


Couple of Chatty Cathys.

It shouldn't be
too much longer. Mr. Keane.

- Dean.
- [ROSE MARY] I'm sorry?

My last name.
You-you just called me Keane.

- Keane?
- Dean.

- With a K?
- With a D.


I don't remember a Dean
in the Department of Transportation.

Excuse me?

You're an assistant secretary

in the Department of Transportation?

N-no. What?

I'm junior counsel.

Oh, gosh.

What is my brain doing up there?


Yes, Mr. President?

Um, Mr. Dean has been here
for the past minutes.

Uh-huh. Certainly, I'll let him know.

Thank you, Mr. President.

The president apologizes,

but his meeting with Senator Thurmond

has been extended indefinitely.

Fortunately, it looks
like we can reschedule

your get-to-know-you for September.


It's June.

[ROSE MARY] That's the next space

the president has available,

unless that's a problem.


I serve at the pleasure
of the president.

That's the spirit.

[DEAN] President f*cking d*ck.

f*cking piece of f*cking assh*le.

f*cking, f*cking shit. f*ck.


- Ow, Jesus.

[LINDA] Sir, I have
Maureen Kane returning.

Miss Kane.

Hi. Well, I... God, that's all

a girl's gotta do to reach
White House counsel?

I think I imagined switchboards
all the way up Mount Olympus.

Stop, I'm not that important.

[MO] Oh, Mr. False Modesty.

So come on, you have to tell me.

How'd it go, anyway?

[DEAN] How-how'd what go?

Your meeting with the president
of the United States?

Oh, that, I... yeah, I, um...

No, I-I-I had to reschedule
that, actually.

You had to reschedule?

Yeah, you know,
I-I've been so busy lately

with, uh, you know, meetings and stuff.

You don't think that's rude, do you,

to reschedule a meeting
with the president?

Maybe it looks like
I'm too busy for him.

Uh, no, I-I don't...
I think it's a good thing,

shows you're not sitting around
like the village idiot

waiting for him to meet with you.

You've, you know,
got other things going on.

- Important things.
- Right.

Blonde, important,

"best thing that ever happened
to you" things.

Well, that reminds me,
I-I got some bad news.

I-I don't think I can make it
to see you this weekend.

What? No.

I've got the tickets to Cat Stevens

at the Bowl Saturday night.

[DEAN] I know, and I love Cat Stevens,

but I have this conference in Manila.

It totally slipped my mind. I'm sorry.

I have Senator Gurney on the line,
and he says it's urgent.


Look, I-I gotta take
this other call, but, um,

on my way back through the States,
how about I stop by LA?

Who's playing at the Bowl Tuesday?

- The Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
- Perfect.

I love... it's beautiful. I...

We'll make a night of it, okay?

I'll talk to you soon.

Okay, I'll light a candle in my window.

That didn't play too well in California.

Yeah, that was a tough call in ' .

Not as tough as the one
Ronnie had to make

to book his flight home
after he lost the nomination.


In four years, Ronnie wants to run

a presidential campaign
that's based on...

Yeah, on fair representation
and-and moral integrity

and all bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.

You know, with that attitude,
it's a wonder

you haven't racked up
our endorsement yet.

Well, with that kind
of blind confidence,

it's a wonder you haven't been able

to break through in the South.


You know, if I were Reagan,
I would wonder

why someone as charming
and noble as myself

could get crushed in the South

by a supposed liar and cheat like Nixon.

It's no mystery,

at least not to the people
of Pine Bluff.

They put their faith in Nixon,
and in return,

he won the presidency for them,
and now everything he does

looks like
a confirmation of their faith.

So what if he had to get down
in the mud to do it?

Even Christ had to wash
a few dirty feet.

Are you actually comparing d*ck Nixon

to Jesus Christ right now?


Jesus Christ wouldn't make it

Yes, sir.

I specifically said
I want no one with ties

to the campaign on-site.

Well, apparently we're short on Cubans.

[MITCHELL] All right, get
the f*ck back to D.C. tonight.

You hear me?

The next hours are gonna be crucial.

We'll have to go low and slow.
Let's not make any big moves.

I-I understand, sir.

Only I was hoping to stop in LA.

We'll regroup the whole team
when we get in.

I'll get Jeb to write up a containment.

Sir, uh, before you go, sir,

uh, one more thing.

I-I don't know how to put this.

Uh, Jeb and I were wondering
about your wife.

What about her?

[DEAN] Well, you know, I'd-I'd never go
on the record with this, sir,

but McCord did work in your home.

You really think that
when Martha sees his face

in the newspaper, she won't call

one of her journalist friends?

You said it yourself, sir,

the next hours are gonna be crucial.

Listen, Dean, I know you're trying to be

a good little farmhand,
but you're gonna have to get

your d*ck out of
the butter churn on this one.

You got it?

Yes-yes, sir.

Won't happen again, sir.

What's going on?

You gotta promise you'll tell no one.

I promise.

Dean got himself caught up

in a raid on a Filipino brothel.

He's being forced out of the country.

- You're kidding.
- You didn't hear it from me.


I knew he was an operator
the moment I laid eyes on him.

Oh, his sweet little girlfriend.

She'll be mortified.


This is what happens when
there's no trust between two people.

Now, where were we?


- Oh, yeah.
- Follow me.

Well, well, well,

Mr. Eye For Detail.


You really saved the day here.

Well, I'm just glad
I could represent myself

on behalf of the building.

The big bosses, uh,
have approved a small token

of their appreciation
for your heroic actions

during the course of the break-in.

- What's this?
- [ANDERSON] It's a raise.

Two fifty?

Every week.

I appreciate it.





Honeybun? Where are you?



Oh, Jesus.

Oh, Peter, you scared me.

Sorry, ma'am, I was just
getting some breakfast.

Where is everyone?

Oh, your daughter went
to Disneyland with Katarina.

Yes, of course.

And my husband?

Mr. Mitchell had to fly to Washington

for an urgent business meeting.

His instructions
were to have you stay here.


I think I'll just, uh...

...give his office a call,
make sure everything's all right.

All right, Peter, seriously,
what is going on?

Where is everyone?

As I said, your husband
had an urgent meeting...

Okay, well, stop saying that
and just tell me.

Okay, there's no need to get hysterical.

Why don't you just go back
to your room and relax?

This is ridiculous.
I am calling my husband.


You are not in charge here.

- Do you understand me?
- Mm-hmm.


Your husband's a very busy man,

and he doesn't have time
right now to take your call.

[HUNT] Should be the last of it.

I saw this in a dream, Howard.

These flames consuming
our best-laid plans.

It's all our fault.

We made too many mistakes,

too many assumptions.

The tide of our ideals

dashed against reality's rocky shore.

How could we have been so foolish

as to not see it coming?

[HUNT] See what coming, Gordon?
