New York Competition No. 24: First Reactions

By

Welcome back to the New York Magazine Competition. On alternate Mondays, we lay out a challenge and offer a sample responses. Enter in the comments section, or on Twitter with the hashtag we've provided, and the editors will select a winner. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year's subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription to the iPad edition (winner's choice). Full rules are here.

COMPETITION NO. 24: FIRST REACTIONS. 

Please suggest the initial remarks on a major occasion made by a noted figure. For example:

“David who?” —Eric Cantor

“How many pages do you think it’ll be?”
—Robert Gottlieb, to Robert Caro

“Adorable. And look how much hair!”
—Fred Trump

Enter on Twitter with the hashtag #firstreactions, or in the comments thread on nymag.com’s Daily Intelligencer, by June 25.
