Firstly

Won't work since you cannot use the "\" in the middle of a string.

 Answer "Now is the time for all good men " & \
                   "to come to the aid of their party."
gives you all the words, but on one line of the dialog.

Try adding one or more cr's
 Answer "Now is the time for all good men "&cr& \
                   "to come to the aid of their party." & cr & \
                   "T'is the season for parties."
