          Hi there, the 1 refers to the cast library that member "points1" belongs to.

          So ...
          put member("points1",1).text

          returns the text string contained in the cast member called "points1" that
          resides in cast number 1, the first cast of the movie.

          If the first cast is named internal, you could also put this instead of a
          numeric cast reference...
          put member("points1","internal").text

          Cheers
