Hello to all the members of this forum. First of all, thanks for all your help and time.

Are the following grammatically correct?

-"You can‘t be sure that Kevin is the guy who is sending flowers to you. I remember you had a lot of admirers in High School.", Tim said.
-"Really? Come on Tim! Kevin is your best friend, you know he's been doing it!, Kelly replied.

Thanks.

Couple of minor punctuation problems ;-)

-"You can‘t be sure that Kevin is the guy who is sending flowers to you. I remember you had a lot of admirers in High School.", Tim said.
-"Really? Come on Tim! Kevin is your best friend, you know he's been doing it!, Kelly replied.

Should be:

-"You can‘t be sure that Kevin is the guy who is sending flowers to you. I remember you had a lot of admirers in High School." Tim said.
-"Really? Come on Tim! Kevin is your best friend, you know he's been doing it!" Kelly replied.


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
You know who I am

In addition to the above answer:

-"Really? Come on, Tim! Kevin is your best friend; you know he's been doing it!

Semicolons are used to join two simple sentences which have similar or/and related ideas.

Since the problems with the punctuation marks were mentioned, I corrected them.
