Get rid of all the quotes:-

tempStr=tempStr.replace(/\"|\'/g, "")

and if required add single quotes to start and end of the string

tempStr=tempStr.replace(/^(.+)$/, "'$1'")

Also try this:-

var tempStr = "philip's"
tempStr=tempStr.replace(/\"|\'/g, "\\'")
alert (tempStr);
tempStr=tempStr.replace(/^(.+)$/, "'$1'")
alert (tempStr);

but you cannot have both " and ' in the same string.
