How do I use quotation marks to indicate characters are talking over each other?
Adding to Lewis's answer -- quotation marks will not help you indicate that two people are talking over each other. You will need to find some other means -- probably through the text itself -- that one speaking is stepping on another's words.

The quotation marks are placed at the start and end of the words said.
John said, "Please pass the butter."
Note the other punctuation marks used.
