Syntax errors will cause previous task(s) to fail the re-check.

For task 2, you added a line calling a function named "dialog". But since this is not a valid function name it causes the entire script to fail the checks, and task 1 is always re-tested first.

Hint: take a look at what you wrote for task 1. Maybe the answer for task 2 is something similar?
