the task states: Assign the string "A stitch in time saves nine." to the quoteLabel.

you are missing the period at the end of the sentence:

class viewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var quoteLabel: UILabel!

    @IBAction func quoteButtonPressed() {

        // put period at end of string
        quoteLabel.text = "A stitch in time saves nine."
    }

}

thanks, man. wow, the answers are so sensitive to these small things.
