    need some help with dialoq.

    I'm doing some more proof reading, so I'm going to post some phrases that I'm unsure about. I hope you can help me with my punctuation. Here goes.

    1."I'm terribly sorry for disturbing your meal, but once you see what i have (comma?) you'll understand. (I sense there's a comma,but I'm unsure.)

    2."Of course, but first you see(comma?) I was hoping for some sort of cash reward for my troubles."

    3."Get on with it (comma?) fool! (I'd say yes cause it's a direct address. Fool could be replaced by "mark")

    4." What do I care about other (peoples or people's ) conversations." (Basically I'm confused. Is it "peoples" or "people's")

    5."His words (comma?) not mine. I swear."

    6."You insult me(comma?) plus you want a reward for what you did."


    Thanks for the help guys.
