labeled a box of dishes as kitchen stuff
When she moved, Becky labeled a box of dishes as "kitchen stuff."

Is as optional in the above? Thanks.

I think it is.
The period should be outside the quotation marks.

Thanks, Anglika and 2006.
By the way, I find that the period is inside the quotation marks in many cases, and it looks neat this way to me.
So, I wonder why you think otherwise, 2006. I'd be happy to listen to your reasons.

Your observation is correct, and if the label read kitchen stuff. you would have to put the period inside the quotation marks. If the label just read kitchen stuff, which it most likely does, the period should be outside the quotation marks. So my comment was based on the most likely probability.

Thanks, 2006.
But I can see no difference between the two underlined parts.

I didn't underline anything; check the blue. The first one includes a period; the second one doesn't. (kitchen stuff. and kitchen stuff)
