Things that are wrong: Putting punctuation of the outer sentence into a quote, like

I heard he said "butts?"

This falsifies the quote *and* ends the sentence in a quote mark - which isn't a thing those do.

Instead, just put the punctuation outside of the quote, like:

I heard she said "butts"?

This has been a PSA, brought to you by me. Me - nobody else but me.
