HI,

I wanted to print something like "dah!!", but System.out.println does not want to print inverted commas, it gives me an error.

One easy way to do this is to add '"' in front and end of the println statement. And I don't think quotes can't be displayed as inverted commas in the console, unlike inside MS Word.
