prin1 (or some internal equivalent) is what's used to insert the result
of evaluating the form (in the *scratch* buffer or in the minibuffer
when using M-x eval-expression).

Try explicitly using prin1 yourself, e.g.:

   (prin1 (buffer-substring-no-properties 34 37))
   "e \"""e \""

prin1 returns its argument, which is then printed by the interaction
loop, so you get two things printed in *scratch*.  Note that they are
the same, as the explicit and implicit calls to prin1 performed the same
ascii-encoding of the value.
