Task 1 no longer passing

Task 1 is to create an empty array literal. Task 2 is to fill the array with three objects, each with 2 property/value pairs. However, when I try to submit, an error pops up that Task 1 is not longer passing. The JS code looks good to me, what am I missing?

script.js
var objects = [
  {prop1: value1, prop2: value2},
  {prop1: value1, prop2: value2},
  {prop1: value1, prop2: value2}
];

<script src="script.js"></script>

Hey Marshall,

Your values are strings so should be enclosed in inverted commas:

var objects = [
  {prop1: 'value1', prop2: 'value2'},
  {prop1: 'value1', prop2: 'value2'},
  {prop1: 'value1', prop2: 'value2'}
];

Hope that helps.
