    Taylor walked from side to side of the street very anxious.

    Hello.

    Are the following dialogues grammatically correct?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Taylor walked from side to side of the street very anxious.


    -"Calm down Sir. I know him and his modus operandi very well. When you had deposited the money?", Brad said.

    -"Today, early in the morning.", Taylor replied.

    -"We are still on time. I can help you to get your money back. But you have to help my friend Kevin first."


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thanks!.

    Try:

    Taylor walked back and forth, anxiety written all over his face.

    Rewrite.

    When did you deposit the money?

    Taylor walked anxiously from one side of the street to the other.

    "Calm down, sir. I know him and his modus operandi very well. When did you had deposited deposit the money?", Brad said/asked.

    "Today, early in the morning (no full stop here)", Taylor replied.

    "We are still on time. I can help you to get your money back but you have to help my friend Kevin first."
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Taylor walked from side to side of the street very anxious.

    Note that you shouldn't capitalize "sir" here. Capitalize that word only when it is used as a title.

    Re: Taylor walked from side to side of the street very anxious.

    Dictionary.com gives ten examples of the use of "dialogue". I suggest that you follow their example. (They don't pluralize it once.)

    www.dictionary.com

    As for your question, I suggest:

    Would you correct the grammar in the following sentences?

    Or:

    Please correct the grammar in the following sentences.
