For the record, I think that is proper English. When you continue the quote of the same person into the next paragraph you don't end the quote, but you add a quote at the beginning of the next paragraph so people know you are continuing the quote and didn't just forget the end quote.

lol, sry. Personally I don't care about grammar, being an IT major most of my writing has 3 letters or less abbreviations for everything.
ex: gtg, plz txt me l8r when u r home. At least no one here cares about it, it's a computer forum not an English forum, I couldn't stand always being wrong with how I speel stuff or punctuate things.
