From a Nation articleon George Plimpton:
"In 2003, while drinking at the bar of the Brook Club, Plimpton's blood pressure fell, and he collapsed on the floor. The paramedics recognized him and, while slapping his face, yelled, 'Hey, George! Wake up!'--at which point the maitre d' turned to them and declared, 'At the Brook Club, sir, we refer to him as Mr. Plimpton.'"
