* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: One editor of the Post objects that the Democrats are in such state of disarray that Nixon resorting to the Watergate underhandedness makes no sense. It's later revealed that it's all part of a (likely still unnecessary) campaign engineered by the White House to undermine the Democrats.

* DirtyCop: John Mitchell, the Top Cop - Attorney General - of ''United States law enforcement''.
** Averted for the most part by the cops and law enforcement types at the grunt level.
** The Watergate Burglars and their handlers were mostly CIA: technically dirty ''spies'',[[note]]Which is essentially what spies do, after all - look for material in someone's history that a ''normal'' person would try to see as private subject matter by generally devious and often underhanded means.[[/note]] not cops.

* ForensicAccounting: The movie made the phrase "Follow the money" a part of the political lexicon and popular culture. In the film, it is whispered to reporter Bob Woodward by Deep Throat as a way to cut through the lies and deceptions and find the truth about the Watergate scandal. This is a fictionalized line created by the movie, but nevertheless catches the spirit of the process perfectly.
