I am new to PHP and I am trying to create an application for a friend with a good sense of humor, the app takes quotes and randimly loads one when the page is loaded. I had no idea how to do it so I took some coading for a blackjack shuffle program and pluged in what i wanted. It worked for a little while and then I tried to add some more quotes and got an error that I cant explain. the code looks like it is right but I keep getting the error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in
/home/.aspen/mesamb1/sultanofmirth.com/every/quotes.php on line 142

line 142 is

$face = array_rand($names) ;

I hope some one know what my problem is!
here is all of my program:

Use
$face = array_rand($names);

instead of

$face = array_rand($names) ;

You are using a <SPACE> after the array_rand() function

Thanks for the help!! though that sent me on the right path it didn't fix it. the problem was I did not put a ; on the line above!! thanks again
