Text matches but gives a different result

I matched the text to what the teacher has but he says at 1:52. The teacher says that a diolouge box should not pop up....but yet it does?

I tried your snapshot and I got exactly the same initial behavior as in the video (no alerts).

Now before you can proceed with making it work, you need to relocate the script.js file to the js folder, where the HTML file is looking for it.

Also, I noticed that your HTML has two copies of the script tag even though there's only one in the video.
