Quick grammar question

(1/1)

Dansinger:
I've got this sentence, but am not sure. Should I use were, or was?

“You were (was) going to tell me about my mother, when we were interrupted,” Neel said. He took a sip of his iced tea and looked at his father.

Mark Hoffmann:
were

Jo Bannister:
Of course were.  "I was, you were, he was, we were, you were, they were."

Dansinger:
Thanks. I don't know what got me so confused. Must be tired.

Jo Bannister:
