How do I return a string of values within an object's method?

I seem to be having syntax and parsing problems.

object.js
var contact = {
  firstName: "Andrew",
  lastName: "Chalkley",
  fullName: function(){
    return this.firstName + this.lastName;
  }
}

You did the right thing converting the logging function into a return, but somehow in the process you lost the space that was being placed between the names as the final string is built.

:point_right: Try again, but be sure to return the same string that was being logged by the original code.
