    That's likely. Then what if his sister said it sarcastically? Does it make sense then?

    No. Like bhaisahab, I have tried to make the information we have about their (lack of) relationship make sense with that quote, but I can't.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
