The simple, and obvious, way  -- to evaluate some but not all lines in 
an Input cell, as I understand what you want, but without first dividing 
the single cell into several -- is not to combine the separate pieces 
into a single Input cell at the start.

That is, develop code in smaller chunks, each chunk in a separate Input 
cell. Then, once you're confident it works, combine the separate cells 
into a single cell.
