Check your Language setting and fonts.

The standard opening quote is usually U+201C and the closing one
U+201D (Unicode characters).

According to the Help (eek!)
	Choose Tools - AutoCorrect- Custom Quotes tab 

You can customise the opening and close-quote marks there.
If the fonts have them, use smiley and frown faces, if you like.
