“We remain friends over the years and I believe we are still friends at this time but when it comes to our parliamentary duties in the House, he does his job and I do my job. We go after one another. We don’t take it too far but we remain respectful to one another. I remember one thing he did with me one time. I was giving a speech on some bill and I got up and made a quote. I don’t remember the quote but the quote was from the bible. Said turn was to answer now when Said turn to answer, I had to burst out a laugh. Said looked at me and looked at the Speaker and said you know Madam Speaker up to the devil quotes the bible. That was funny to me and very witty because he was a witty parliamentarian. He was a witty debater. He was tricky while debating and you have to be on your p’s and q’s in order to handle him.”
