what good writers do
This is the second of three pages dealing with quotation marks. Know these
rules and include them in your writing.

mark if the question mark or the exclamation mark is part of the
‘‘Is this the correct tool?’’ the assistant asked the machinist.
The soldier screamed to his comrade, ‘‘Move away now!’’
Note: If a question mark or an exclamation mark is a part of the whole
sentence (and not just a part of the direct quotation), place the mark
outside the quotation marks.
Did Mr. Boland say, ‘‘You have only two choices left’’? (The entire
sentence, not the quotation, is a question.)
I was so ecstatic when Jenny said, ‘‘You are our choice for class rep’’!
(The entire sentence, not the quotation, is the exclamation.)
Use a comma, exclamation mark, or question mark to separate the direct
quotation from the rest of the sentence. A period cannot do the same.

‘‘This is absolutely awesome!’’ the captain told her crew.
‘‘Will it be sunny tomorrow?’’ the news anchor asked her staff.

Rules to play Foosball
Once a match has been called, both teams should report immediately to the designated table. If a team has not reported to the table within three minutes, they should be recalled. A team, upon being recalled, must report immediately to the table in order to stop the forfeiture process.
A recall is made every three minutes. Penalty for second and subsequent recalls is forfeiture of a game.
If a team has forfeited any games due to recalls, they get the choice of side or serve once play begins.
Enforcement of this rule is the responsibility of the Tournament Director.
