Yes, definitely start revising quotes. However more than quotes, you need to remember context - context will singlehandely make or break your response to some of the questions you'll be given. Quotes are important - don't get me wrong, but worst case scenario you can paraphrase, or just describe the event in the scene to get almost the same amount of marks. Context, on the other hand, you cannot blag.
I did Jekyll and Hyde (plus two others you haven't mentioned) for GCSE English lit and got a 9, not really becaue I predicted the exact questions, but moreso though about what the themes could be and how to apply quotes and ideas onto them. Duality? Violence? Reputation? Even if you think that a theme has already come up in a question, it may well be reworded - you never know.
So yes, think about quotes and yes, please start revising but more than that, think about HOW you could apply the quotes to different themes.
Good luck,
