This senior high school English Literature quiz is about dialog in Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. All direct speech in literature is referred to as “dialogue”, despite the fact that the technical meaning of the term refers to a conversation between at least two people.

1.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Ah! He is in trouble! What has he done?"
Dr Lanyon
Dr Jekyll
Mr Hyde
Mr Hyde's housekeeper
This line is the only line spoken by a woman in the novel. The housekeeper, "an ivory-faced and silvery-haired old woman", is not named
2.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"There is one point I should like you to understand. I have really a very great interest in poor Hyde"
Mr Poole
Dr Jekyll
Dr Lanyon
Mr Utterson
Like Mr Utterson, the reader does not yet know why Dr Jekyll takes such an interest in Mr Hyde. The statement becomes ironic in retrospect
3.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"To tell you the truth, I am uneasy about poor Jekyll; and even outside, I feel as if the presence of a friend might do him good"
Mr Poole
Mr Hyde
Mr Enfield
Mr Utterson
The characters of the novel despise Mr Hyde and feel sorry for "poor" Dr Jekyll without realizing that both are the same being
4.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"It is more than ten years since Henry Jekyll became too fanciful for me. He began to go wrong, wrong in mind"
Mr Utterson
Mr Enfield
Dr Lanyon
Mr Guest
Dr Lanyon and Dr Jekyll fall out over Dr Jekyll's medical ambitions
5.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"The hatred of Hyde for Jekyll, was of a different order. His terror of the gallows drove him continually to commit temporary suicide, and return to his subordinate station of a part instead of a person; but he loathed the necessity, he loathed the despondency into which Jekyll was now fallen"
Dr Jekyll
Mr Utterson
Mr Poole
Dr Lanyon
These lines are not strictly dialog, since they are contained in Dr Jekyll's written statement. Notice the way that Jekyll refers to both sides of himself in the third person, he has lost the "ego", a sense of being an "I"
6.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Has the greed of curiosity too much command of you? Think before you answer, for it shall be done as you decide. As you decide, you shall be left as you were before, and neither richer nor wiser, unless the sense of service rendered to a man in mortal distress may be counted as a kind of riches of the soul"
Dr Jekyll
Mr Hyde
Dr Lanyon
Mr Utterson
Mr Hyde tempts Dr Lanyon with illicit knowledge, proving its power by transforming before Lanyon's eyes into Dr Jekyll. These words are contained in Dr Lanyon's written account
7.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Some day, Utterson, after I am dead, you may perhaps come to learn the right and wrong of this. I cannot tell you"
Dr Jekyll
Mr Hyde
Mr Poole
Dr Lanyon
Mr Utterson does not yet know the cause of Dr Lanyon's permanent estrangement from Dr Jekyll, only finding out the truth after Jekyll's suicide
8.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"So it will walk all day, sir, ay, and the better part of the night. Only when a new sample comes from the drugstore, there's a bit of a break. Ah, it's an ill-conscience that's such an enemy to rest! Ah, sir, there's blood foully shed in every step of it! But hark again, a little closer — put your heart in your ears Mr Utterson, and tell me, is that the doctor's foot?"
Mr Poole
Dr Lanyon
Mr Guest
Mr Enfield
Dr Jekyll's butler is frightened for him and senses that something monstrous paces behind his door. He refers to the pacing person (Mr Hyde) as an "it"
9.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"Will you let me see your face?"
Dr Jekyll
Mr Hyde
Mr Utterson
Mr Poole
Mr Utterson wishes to be able to recognize Mr Hyde if he ever comes across him again. Dr Jekyll's will has made Mr Utterson highly suspicious of the man before he ever meets him
10.
Match the dialog to the correct speaker.

"I never saw a circle of such hateful faces; and there was the man in the middle, with a kind of black, sneering coolness — frightened too, I could see that — but carrying it off, sir, really like Satan"
Mr Enfield
Dr Jekyll
Mr Utterson
Dr Lanyon
Mr Enfield tells Mr Utterson of the time he witnessed Mr Hyde trample a young girl in the street
