The Post (2017) Poster


Meryl Streep: Kay Graham



  • Kay Graham : My decision stands, and I'm going to bed.

  • [behind closed doors] 

    Ben Bradlee : So, can I ask you a hypothetical question?

    Kay Graham : Oh, dear. I don't like hypothetical questions.

    Ben Bradlee : Well, I don't think you're gonna like the real one, either.


    Kay Graham : Do you have the Papers?


    Ben Bradlee : Not yet.

  • Kay Graham : Do you know what my husband said about the news? He called it the first rough draft of history.

  • Kay Graham : Quality drives profitability

  • Robert McNamara : If you publish, you'll get the very worst of him, the Colsons and the Ehrlichmans and he'll crush you.

    Kay Graham : I know, he's just awful, but I...

    Robert McNamara : [Interrupting and getting extremely angry]  He's a... Nixon's a son of a bitch! He hates you, he hates Ben, he's wanted to ruin the paper for years and you will not get a second chance, Kay. The Richard Nixon I know will muster the full power of the presidency and if there's a way to destroy your paper, by God, he'll find it.

  • Kay Graham : [to Robert McNamara]  I'm here asking your advice, Bob, not your permission.

  • Ben Bradlee : We have to be the check on their power. If we don't hold them accountable, then, my God, who will?

    Kay Graham : Well, I've never smoked a cigar. And I have no problem holding Lyndon or Jack or Bob or any of them accountable. We can't hold them accountable if we don't have a newspaper.
