NANCY PELOSI: Job well done. But I would also say-- we all-- what's really important-- for women and politics in government to understand the-- the gratitude we have to those who went before, and the responsibility we have-- to those who come after. And I would want women to know that whatever the struggle, it was worth it. And whatever the risk, it is worth it as well.

DIANE SAWYER: Thank you, Madame Speaker. And I know that you know that men and women all across the political spectrum know what it means after 200 years to hear the words Madame Speaker.

NANCY PELOSI: Yeah, it's pretty exciting. Thank you.
