Transcript of The Rules of Dialogue

The Rules of Dialogue Rule #1 Use quotation marks to show the speaker's exact words. Betty said, "I like to sleep late on Saturday mornings." Dialogue is when two people are speaking together. Rule #2 Quotation marks go outside punctuation marks, such as commas, periods, question marks, and exclamation points. "Do you always sleep late on Saturdays?" Juanita asked. Rule #3 When a dialogue sentence is a statement that ends in a period but has narrative after it, a comma goes inside the quotation marks and the period goes at the end of the narrative. On some Saturdays, I have to get up early," Betty answered. Rule #4 When dialogue begins with a narrative statement, a comma goes after the narrative, before the quotation marks. Betty answered, "On some Saturdays, I have to get up early." Rule #5 Begin the first word of dialogue with a capital letter. Juanita said, "On Saturdays, I like to sleep in." Rule #6 When a different person starts speaking, start a new paragraph. Betty said, "I think I will sleep in this Saturday. I have no reason to get up early."
"I think I'll sleep in too," Juanita replied.
