    Use quotation marks before and after a character's exact words. Place a period inside closing quotation marks. Use a comma to set off the speaker's tag (he said) from the beginning of a quotation. Place the comma inside closing quotation marks when the speaker's tag follows the quotation. "Let's go," Gilda said. Use quotation marks around each part of a divided quotation. Remember to set off the speaker's tag with commas. Place a question mark or an exclamation point inside the quotation marks when it is part of the quotation. Place a question mark or an exclamation point outside the quotation marks when it is not part of the quotation. Did I hear Ray say, "Okay"? Start a new paragraph when you move from one speaker to another.
