} else if ( today === 'Friday' && money <=9 ) { you've almost got it right. It just needs to say Friday. the rest is extra information and that's why it's catching.

} else if ( today === 'Friday' && money <=9 ) {alert("It's Friday, but I don't have enough money to go out."); is out of order. I think it needs to be first if money is >10 you will never get to this line. Correct me if I am wrong.
