    I already have the script for launching one or more applications, and I could make a new one to quit them, but I was hoping it could be made into the same script. Can this be done?

    here's what I have now:

    tell application "Firefox" to activate

    tell application "BetterTouchTool" to activate

    Code:
    set appName to "Terminal"
    tell application "System Events" to set counter to the count of (processes whose name is appName)
    if counter = 0 then
    	tell application appName to activate
    else
    	tell application appName to quit
    end if
