Scan 1000 line text file and copy text inside quotes on each line to a new text file

I have a file that has 1000+ lines of text, and I need only the text which is inside quotes.

Example:
------------------------------
text text text text

text text text text    "copy this to new file"
text text text text    "also copy this"
text text "everything in quotes should be copied to a new file"
------------------------------

I am stumped on how to accomplish this in vbs.

Any help would be appreciated!

This should do it..
 Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objOut : Set objOut = objFSO.CreateTextFile("F:\NewFile.txt")
arrData = Split(objFSO.OpenTextFile("F:\Test.txt").ReadAll, vbNewLine)
 
For Each strData in arrData
  If InstrRev(strData, chr(34)) > 0 Then
    strStart = Instr(strData, chr(34)) + 1
    strStop = InstrRev(strData, chr(34))
    strNewData = Mid(strData, strStart, strStop - strStart)
    objOut.WriteLine strNewData
  End If
Next
 
objOut.Close
