Why? If Tim had gotten out of the car and then gone into the shop,
and Peter had said so, would the sentence not be the same?

He's able to but not willing because it will show that he's wrong.
I don't see anyone backing-up your view!
By the way, what do you think is the difference between
a 'direct quotation' and an 'indirect quotation' ... ?

No, the sentence would be "Peter said that Tim got out of his car and
went into the shop."

There's no such thing as an indirect quotation.

Check out the headers for the post which gave the example.
You'll see there that it was me who gave the example.
I'm surprised you need that pointing out to you!

No, the sentence would be "Peter said that Tim got out of his car and
went into the shop."
Or add the then....makes no difference. But Peter will never admit
his mistakes. A true troll....argue even when people are now laughing
at you.

So what makes you think that you know any better than
the author of the example? As the headers don't give
the answer to that question, you need to ask the author...

But you seem to believe your own lies...
Doesn't that make you a hypocrite?

[According to your last comment,
you shouldn't trust your own lies...]
