In 1974, President Richard Nixon

resigned in disgrace...

...amid the Watergate scandal.

One of the mysteries

of the 20th century...

...pertains to the identity

of Deep Throat...

...the inside source who leaked the

information to The Washington Post.

Who is Deep Throat?

Tonight, my guests will

answer that question.

Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein...

...Post reporters who broke

the story so many years ago.

- Nice to have you here.

- Thank you for having us.

Let's just get right to it.

Who is...

...Deep Throat?

Well, first of all,

we're not telling you.

Second, I was under the impression

that I would be the only guest tonight.

Well, I guess you're not, Bob.

You know, you guys

are getting pretty old now.

So what's your point?

I'm wondering, are you ever

going to tell anybody...

...who Deep Throat is...

...before you die?

Well, a lot bigger names than you...

...have asked us

who Deep Throat is, so...

I don't think we'd reveal it

on a little show like this.

You know what I think?

I mean, I'm just gonna

come right out and say it.

I don't think there is a Deep Throat.

I think you made it up.

- Yes, there is. Deep Throat is...

- Don't say it! He's trying to trick us!

I'm sorry, Bob.

Don't ever touch me.

- Bob, I said I'm sorry.

- Don't ever...

You smell like cabbage.

Oh, fudge!

Dear Bobby:

I'm having so much fun already.

I need you to concentrate.

- Dear Bobby:

- Hold on, hold on.

- Here's the number one reason...

- Wait.

Arlene, I need to have time

to review my letters.

- We have a deadline, Betsy.

- I know.

But I need to concentrate.

Let me just look at them.

Okay. Dear Bobby:

Here's the number one reason

that I think...

Okay, I'm ready.

"A."

Dear Bobby:

Here's the number one reason that

I think that you should choose me...

...Arlene Lorenzo...

...for the "Win A Date

With Bobby Sherman" contest...

...in Tiger Beat magazine.

- Hold on. Wait.

Number one:
I love you.

And number two:

I just think you're cute.

B, B. Oh, my God,

they're both together.

But the main reason that I think

you should pick me, Arlene Lorenzo...

...is because we're soul mates, Bobby.

You are so brilliant, Arlene.

So what do we have so far?

"Dear Bobb...

...y:
"

I think maybe I could type

faster than you.

Four more years!

Four more years!

- What are you looking at?

- Nothing.

You seem pretty interested in nothing.

Give me those.

I'll take the one doing cartwheels.

What time is it?

Shit!

The gemstone is glistening.

The gemstone is glistening.

She's finally asleep!

The deadline to enter the contest

is midnight. We have to hurry.

We have to mail this letter. Go...

...so I can win,

or I swear I'll die.

- Evening, Mr. Whipple.

- Evening.

Don't squeeze the Charmin.

- Hi, Dad.

- Hi, Georgie.

- Can I carry the Charmin?

- Yep, but no squeezing.

What did you do in the store today?

You should've seen it.

There I was, and these two ladies

were squeezing the Charmin.

This way, we can get back in

without having to go to the lobby.

So nobody'll ever see us

and tell my mom.

You're a genius!

Down, down!

It's Fat Freddy.

That is so disgusting.

Go, go, go!

What the...?

Oh, shit!

Max, call the cops.

Looks like we got a break-in here.

You know why I love Bobby?

Because he cares about people,

but also about nature and ecology.

I need a status report.

Give me a 20 for gemstone. Over.

Jewel thieves!

Really?

Hold it!

Get away from us!

Young people running wild

in the middle of the night.

By the time you're grown, you'll be

living in the Soviet Union of America!
