Yes, it does make sense.

In order to save this procedure, you will need to double the
single quotes, cause you're sending the CREATE PROCEDURE
to the server.

Next, you need to double the quotes in the quoted string. But
because you already double the quotes, this single quote in the
resulting EXECUTE STATEMENT becomes 4 quotes. So in
total, this makes 4 pairs of single quotes :-)
