pretty sure it's \" but it's been a while since I used it.
note, some of the scripting stuff doesn't work on some linux distros with the packages they provide because they decided some library wasn't suitable for their distribution and stripped it out, even if MAME changed to a version of the library that they should be happy with. I think Mint is fine tho.
