Single quotes(') have special meaning to the shell. You
have to cancel the special meaning using backslashes.
For example:
%set a = foo\'bar
%echo $a
foo'bar
%set a = foo\"bar
%echo $a
foo"bar

As I see in your code above, not every single quote is backslashed.
Asterisks should be backslashed in order to passed literally to awk.
awk has also special characters, which also should be backslashed
to be treated as simple characters. For example(bash, not csh):
nik:0:~$ echo | awk '{ print("foo\"bar") }'
foo"bar

It gets complicated since some characters are special to both, csh
and awk. Frequently, you have to use backslashed backslashes, to get
the wanted result... You should check the csh and awk manual page.

Last but not least, do you have use csh?
It's not recommend for scripting.
