After mom died, I started calling home a lot more to talk to my stepdad, Ed Hacker. He and I never really had a phone relationship when my mother was alive. It was more the classic thing of, "You wanna say hi to Ed?" And then we'd verbally clap each other on the back, and then back to mom.

I know the literal meaning about this phrase but do not know the implication here.
Could you paraphrase this one and tell me the meaning please?
Thanks.
