There is one snag to this discussion. When referring to an actual word or number, the word is italicized and then an apostrophe s is added. For example, My phone number has two 3's in it. You have too many that's in your sentence. So I think it should be yes's. But then there is the rule that when a noun ends in s, the plural is formed by adding -es. So it could be yes'es but that looks funny. I will check various dictionaries.
