It's a bit subtler than that.
When you write string literals, single-quoting them make them contain exactly the characters you typed, while double-quoting them activates the interpolation mechanism.
On the other hand, when you use a string as a regular expression, it gets interpreted by the regex engine.
The first two lines are hopefully obvious. As for the others:
OK, for the pedants: the string between the // is interpolated, but its contents are not further expanded. I felt that this was more noise than signal, in this case.
