on mouseUp
  put "hello" into p1
  put quote&"hello"&quote into p2
  set the p1 of me to "new1"
  set the p2 of me to "new2"
  put the p1 of me && the p2 of me
end mouseUp

This works here as it should.
The keys become "hello" (incl.quotes) and hello (without quotes).

What do I not understand in your statement above?
What do you mean by "use a text literal in quotes"?
