JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Arrays Methods: Part 2

Task 1 no longer passing?

EDIT : Duh, was missing a ) to close the sort function, my bad!

I'm having an odd issue where randomly I'll get to say step two of a problem and when I goto check it, it says "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing". If I comment out the code I changed for Task 2, it passes? Anyway it won't let me pass Task 2 of Methods Part 2 in JS Array course. Here's my code, I can't seem to figure it out...

<h1>JavaScript Foundations</h1>
    <h2>Arrays: Methods Part 1</h2>
      var saying1 = ["The", "quick", "brown", "fox", "jumps", "over", "the", "lazy", "dog"];
      var saying2 = ["The", "quick", "brown", "fox", "jumped", "over", "the", "lazy", "dog's", "back"];
      saying2.sort( function(a, b) { return a.length - b.length; };

I had the same problem in an earlier JS Challenge and fixed it by refactoring the code, but don't know where to go from this. Any help is appreciated.

Make sure you close your sort function after the function =)
