I had to purposely misspell (What) to get here so I know that is a spelling error. My question is this, is it ... with, 'If you play... or... with 'If you play...? If there's supposed to be a comma after... with... lets say... with, 'If you play with fire you'll get burned.' was to fall in the middle of a sentence. Should there be a comma after with and after burned?


See example:

The next day after work when the subject of Randy was brought up mom said, "Whater goes around comes around," which was something she said all the time along with, 'If you play with fire you'll get burned.'

Thanks Kimberly! So as far as proper comma punctuation goes I take it that this rewording would be correct??? Yes the reworded sentence sounds stupid, but I'm just making sure. The next day I was thought sure mom would say 'What goes around comes around,' because she always says that, but instead she replied saying, "When you play with fire, you'll get burned."

The comma goes after "fire."
