Revilla said he was surprised and saddened by the passing of Quizon and said that the veteran comedian-actor is a great loss to the Philippine entertainment industry.

“Malaking kawalan siya sa industriya, ngunit sa pagbabalik tanaw, hindi matatawaran ang kanyang mga pamana sa larangan ng sining at sa ating kultura. Bilang isang ring taga-industriya, masuwerte kung sino man ang makakaabot sa kanyang narating. With more than 200 movies and decades-long TV shows, we can only aspire for what he has accomplished,” Revilla said.
