What would the correct grammar be for making statements plural?

Such as They showered her in "I'll miss you's."

This isn't a matter of grammar but of style.

There is no clear style for this—although there are likely many style guides that will indicate one thing or another.

These are all possibilities I can think of that some people might use:

"I'll miss you's."
"I'll miss you"s.
I'll miss yous.
I'll miss yous.
'I'll miss you'-s.
I'LL MISS YOUs.
"I'LL MISS YOU"s.
"I'LL MISS YOUs."
I'll miss yous.
I'll miss yous.


In this particular case, none of those look particularly natural to me.

I would likely rephrase the sentence to avoid the problem:

They showered her in a chorus of "I'll miss you!"
