"At that point in time"

John Dean returned to Congress to testify this week and attention was drawn again to Watergate. At the televised hearings several decades ago, Dean made this phrase famous. English teachers struggled for years afterward to get students to simply say then instead of this five-word phrase which means the same thing.

I also remember a famous quotation from Attorney General John Mitchell who said, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going."

What memories do you have of the Watergate hearings?
