comment When is 「だ/である」required between a noun and the quotation particle と?

There's no need to differentiate between (1) and (2). But what are you asking exactly? And what is an "indirect quote"? Directly quoting someone who directly quotes someone else?

comment How did 面白 end up meaning “Interesting”?
Just a hypothesis, so I'm not putting it as an answer. Maybe something interesting turns your face white. Although a white face in America (western countries?) usually indicates fright or horror, maybe Japan has a different association with that colour.
