like how do a write who said them and stuff?
The MLA(Modern Language Arts) book, the most recent one, will have different parenthetical citations for different forms of quotations. It all depends on the source, whether there are line numbers like in epic poetry, that kind of thing, and your personal list of sources. When it comes to the quotation itself: Researchers found that pesticides "...altered the surface of the bee's intestines, sufficiently weakening the bees to allow the parasites to gain entry -- or perhaps it was the other way around" (Times). That would be if my only source for the Times Union was that article, but if I had more, then I would need to use either the author of the article or the title of it, since I don't have the author.

Punctuation inside of the quotation marks, no punctuation at the end of the sentence, the period goes after the parenthetical citation.
"blah blah blah"by so and so. open quotation, quotaion, closing quotaions and the person who said it then ending mark.
