comment Will SHA1 or Other Hash Functions Ever Contain Quotes
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is an apples and oranges kind of question. SHA-1 will output a string of 160 bits. A quote character is a character and not a bit. Your question will only make sense, if there is an implied conversion algorithm from the bit string output of SHA-1, to the character string you store in your database. This conversion algorithm might be chosen independently of the hash algorithm. Hence, your question is off-topic.

comment How many attempts does it take to crack a 32-bit password hash with this scenario?
Could you explain, in pseudo-code, exactly what you mean by "attempts" in the context of "matching a 32-bit hash from 4 million hashes". Finding a value that is known to exist in a list of 4 million values, depends on whether the list is already sorted or not, and does not depend of what kind of values are in the list or how they were generated.
