Reply to "punctuation"

Hi, Jessy—We use a comma after "say" and other verbs introducing quoted speech when the quoted speech that follows is envisioned as an actual utterance and not merely as a sample of something said or to be said. If I speak of saying "Thank you," for example, a comma after "saying" is not needed.
