Probably just an escaped double-quote: \"

Also, your skip-chars-forward looks funny, you've double-backslashed the
opening parenthesis but single-backslashed the closing, while according to
the docstring of skip-chars-forward you probably need neither: A-Z0-9_\"
might be all you need. Try that and see.
