BASH and YES or ECHO cannot send "!"

I have come across an interaction between bash and yes or echo.
$ echo "Hello there!"
bash: !": event not found
$ echo "Hello there\!"
So there seems not to be a way to display that string.
Oh, wait, apostrophes work!
$ echo 'Hello there!'

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
