Code a single apostrophe in a CL program

How do you code a single apostrophe in a CL program using the CHGVAR command? I'm trying to change a variable using *CAT and *BCAT and I need the first and last character to be an apostrophe. I know this may sound simple, but for some reason, I'm drawing a blank.

I usually use a variable to concatenate by declaring a variable &QUOTE of 1 character with a VALUE(''''). You can then concatenate the quote anywhere in a string.
