Basically you need to use addslashes.

Say you have

$check = "hi'hello";

then $check2 = addslashes($check) would give you,
$check2 = "hi\'hello".

try this to replace " with \"

Don't forget that sometimes PHP requires extra slashes when you compose string:

$sql = "insert .... values (\"here is \\\" char  \")";

in this example \\\" stands for
\\ - slash
\" - quote
so, string will contain only \"

andreif is right.

to make it a bit easier, you can do it like this :

$Title = "Molly the Bear said : \"Wow dude, honey!\""
$SqlQuery = "INSERT INTO Titles VALUES($Title)"
