To Kill a Mockingbird. New York: Grand Central, 2010. Print.Where would I put the quote? Do I put the whole quote, or the first few words of it? Where do I put the page number?Here's one of the quotes: "Baby," said Calpurnia, "I just can't help it if Mister Jem's growing up. He's gonna want to be off to himself a lot now, doing whatever boys do, so you just come right on in the kitchen when you feel lonesome. We'll find lots of things to do in here." (143)

    You don’t cite individual quotations in the Works Cited. You simply list the books, articles, etc., that you quoted from in the body of your essay.The only place where you cite the specific page on which the quotation occurred is right after the quotation, wherever you use it in the body of your essay. In you example, after the sentence “We’ll find lots of things to do in here” you would put (Lee 143) — the author’s last name and the page number. If the reader wants to find out the author’s full name and the title of the book, he can go to the Works Cited and look for “Lee” and there will find out that it’s Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird.
