Welcome to Python - I’d hope you’ve been monitoring this Tutor list for at least a few days -

If you have been, you would see that we need to know which version of Python, what operating system, and then see a complete copy and paste of the traceback and the code you were executing.

In this case, that would be particularly relevant, because it would appear that you have typo’d your iPhone e-mail since there is no " character anyplace in any of the three assignment statements you have given us. Worse, on an iPhone keypad, the “ character isn’t close to anything else you might logically have used.
