If you just need a quote character all by itself, you can make one using the chr function: Use the ASCII code for the double quote character ("). With chr:
print chr(34); my $quot = chr(34); print "This is ${quot}not$quot a quote.\n";

Use the octal or hexadecimal escape code:

print "\042"; print "\x22";
