Actually, I suspect it's specific to your .bashrc. ;-)  The usual (I
hesitate to say "standard", but default in bash) quoting character in
POSIX shells is Ctrl-V, and Ctrl-Q is used for flow control (how
obsolete!)  All of these can be changed with stty, of course.

Quiz: How do you find out what these control characters are?
