When in dialogue, should a period ALWAYS go at the end of the sentence and BEFORE the quotations if theres not like a question mark or some other character?. Ive posted an example so you guys can see. Hope you can help with this, thanks! "Yes, let's go(period here?)" Susan said "Thanks again!" Susan said smiling and waving with Emilio and Chance doing the same. Emily and her husband waved and looked on in kindness as they hopped into the U-haul. As soon as they hopped in, Emilio couldn't help but tell Susan and Chance what the lady said.
