    COHEN. I appreciate the moment.

    This has been a very interesting couple of days, ones that I would normally have spent with friends in Memphis, drinking champagne and looking forward to the new year.

    It's been an honor serving with you, Mr. Dreier. You are an outstanding [[Page H7535]] Member, as Ms. Slaughter said. There are lots of people in the other aisle--Mr. Coble behind you--fine Republicans whom I'm friends with and think the world of, but I'm just happy this day has ended the way it is, kind of a Tiny Tim world. It's just good the way it ended up. Somehow or another, whether it be the fates or Speaker Boehner's abilities to work things from magic, we're going to end up not falling off the fiscal cliff, and I think that's wonderful.

    So I thank Ms. Slaughter for the time, and I thank Speaker Boehner for whatever he's done to produce what I expect will be a positive result for the American people.
