I can't narrow down the key quotes for each character in An Inspector Calls. Please can someone tell me the important ones which I would have a lot to write about?

To be honest, there is not really any 'Correct' quotes, it is all down to what the question is. I'd revise about 3-4 quotes for the main characts, and then revise the themes and quotes based around those themes, because more likely there is going to be a question based on themes. You can also get marks for paraphrasing things, so you don't have to remember some of the quotes as long as you can show reference to them. Although still use some quotes.

Here are some of the quotes I revised:

-"I ought to warn you he's an old friend of mine."// Mr Birling to the Inspector// Trying to sound threatening using social class// links to the theme social class.
-"pink and intimate"// Stage directions// creates a cosy homelike setting.
-"young girls should not be exposed to unpleasant and disturbing things"// Gerald// Ironic because they all let Eva smith be exposed to these things.

There are tons of quotes to use, In my advice revise the ones you can talk the most about that link to characters and themes.
I definitely recommend buying the york notes revision guide for an inspector calls and also buying the book itself, going through it and highlighting the key quotes.

Hoped this helped!!
