Ben, who I like, is not Robert Osborne in this house. Not Buzz is "that guy from Adam 12." See Route 66 on Retro TV. period after the quotes?

I wish we had Retro TV. But we did watch all of Route 66 on DVD a few years ago. They don’t make shows like that anymore — the writing, the locations, the guest stars.

The period can go inside or outside — it’s a matter of what conventions you prefer. Outside is sometimes called logical punctuation. I do it the American (not British) way: commas and periods inside, colons and semicolons outside.
