    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

    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
    	tell application appName to quit
    end if
