    Wake up this late.

    "Tom never wakes up early he wakes up at around 12 PM. Whenever anybody notices this that person asks Tom "you wake up this late every day." That person asks Tim as well "you must have seen him do this?" When that person meets Tim because he is Tom's best friend."

    Please check.

    You really must work on your run-on sentences, tufguy. You need at least a semi-colon after 'early'.
    Whenever anybody notices this, that person asks Tom "You wake up this late every day."
    'Asks' introduces a question. 'You wake up this late every day' is not a question.
    That person asks Tim as well "you must have seen him do this?"
    'You must have seen him do this' is not a question.

    DO I need to use "say" instead of "ask" here? I didn't know this.

It would make more sense for the person to ask "Do you wake up this late every day?"

    That person also says to Tim as well "You must have seen him do this" when that person meets Tim because he is Tom's best friend." (Why are those closing quotation marks there? There are no opening quotation marks to go with them.)

    Please check.
    See above.
