Things to know about this couple: o They are always together no matter what. o They are always flying over the speech. They don’t like books; they prefer poems and magazine articles. They let others know when text has been borrowed. Sometimes they may have double dates, where regular text separates dialogue and causes more than one set of a couple.
You could look funny if you don’t use them right! Quotation Marks, Joey from Friends Quotation Marks, Joey from Friends We must question what is implied by washing hands if it is quotation marks.
Quotation marks are used to indicate direct speech. This shows that these are the exact words said by a person. Example: “I can’t go to the mall because I have to study for a test,” said Katie. Indirect speech is when you summarize what someone else said. Example: Katie can’t go to the mall because she has to study for a test.
The candidate said, “My first priority will be creating new jobs.” Since quotation marks show someone’s exact spoken words, the first quotation mark goes before the first word and the other goes behind the last word. Make sure to capitalize the first letter of the dialogue, unless it is divided with text where the second part would be lower case. “You can vote,” he reminded us, “on your way home from work.”
Hey guys! That rule was super important, but you need to know an exception!! If a person’s speech has ended, then the dialogue picks up again— punctuate accordingly. Use a period just as you would in a normal sentence. “Don’t forget to vote,” he called out. “Every vote counts!”

Place commas and periods inside of quotation marks. Place exclamation marks and question marks inside the quotation marks if they belong to the dialogue. Use single quotation marks if they enclose a title or quote inside quotation marks. “Last night,” said Liz, “I listened to a debate.” Liz asked, “Whom are you voting for?” “Carol thought you said ‘Vote for me.’ Is this true?”
Hey hey! Just dropping in to say that a comma is used to set up dialogue or to show that it is ending. It’s pretty important to know. It’s not always used if another type of punctuation takes its place. “Don’t get excited!” exclaimed Liz.
