Three dots -- what do they mean?

I am on lab one, and I think I got my var pipeline command correct, meaning it does not throw any syntax errors. The command prompt becomes three dots. Is it asking me for something more? I have been searching the documentation, but clearly I do not know what keywords to use, because searching for “assign variable” does not show me anything related to this.

As you can see, the first time it did this, I went ahead and proceeded to the db.movies.aggregate(pipeline).itcount(), but it seems that got appended onto the original command line, because the two commands entered when it was three dots came out as attached to my original command when I used the up arrow to try again.

It is simply waiting for me to close the last bracket.
