Treasure didn't comment out the script snippet for question 4, she copied it and refactored it, so the same code ran twice and resulted in 2 separate console.log printouts. It has nothing to do with using/not using 'this'.

It isn't logging twice because the this keyword was used. It is logging once for part 4. Then again for part 5. If you look to the right in the console @ 4:08 you will see app.js:15 and app.js:19 indicating the lines that were executed.
