this "toUpperCase" code isnt working on my the test.

   var quick = "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog";

          var quickLength    = quick.length;
          var indexOfBrown = quick.indexOf("brown");
          var tenthCharacter = quick.charAt(9);
          var wordBrown = quick.substr(10,5);
          var quickUpper = quick;
          var quickLower = quick;

Jacob, I don't think its necessary to log every thing to the console. He just wants to see if you know how objects work with methods. Remember: object.method();
The object you want to perform the method on is quick
You separate the object from the method with a "." And the method you are using is toUppercase();
var quickUpper = quick.toUpperCase();
