Quoting several lines of script in essay

I want to put this portion of dialogue in my essay

Policeman: Who did you say it was?
Woman: Mr. Crewe
Policeman: Mr. Who?
Woman: No, Mr. Crewe, I tell you. It's horrible.
Policeman: All right, don't you worry. I'll send someone around right away. What number did you say—seven or eleven?
Woman: Thirty-one.

But i have no idea how to set it out. Where do i put quotation marks? Do i put it indented in the text?

    when i did my dissertation i had a conversation bit and i had to indent it and have it basicailly how you've wrote it there

    it was like:

    Paragraph leading to quote...

    “Crawling by your feet…is a bread and butter fly”
    “And what does it live on?”
    “Weak cream with tea in it”
    “Supposing it couldn’t find any?”
    “Then it would die, of course”
    “But that must happen often”
    “It always happens.”

    another paragraph about it.

    From my vague recollection, we had to indent the quote.
