Hi Daniel,

Look like you are doing great except blankets (), see below

<script>

      var genericGreet = function() {
        return "Hello, my name is " + this.name;
      }

      var andrew = {
        name: "Andrew",
        greet: genericGreet
      }

      var ryan = {
        name: "Ryan",
        greet: genericGreet
      }

    </script>

thanks, I got it...

You don't need the parentheses after the genericGreet function:

var ryan = { name: "Ryan", greet: genericGreet }

I just did it seconds ago...Thanks anyway Jeff!
