Keyboard shortcut for stepping out of an auto-quoted string?

I'm using IntelliJ 8 on Mac (on a macbook).  Is there an easy way of moving past the closing quotation mark that IDEA has inserted for me?  I hate taking my hands out of typing position to use an arrow key.

Hello Kevin,

Sure. Just type the closing quotation mark, and it will overwrite the auto-inserted
one.

Just type the close quote. It will "overwrite" or step over the automatically inserted one. Same thing with auto-inserted parentheses, braces and brackets.

Duh! Thanks Randall and Dmitry.  It's a good thing the developer community can't vote a member's intelligence down ;-)
