If true, doesn't program run both pieces of code

In this example:

return “Yes, that was true”;
return “No, that was false”;

If true doesn’t the program run the first bit of code and return “Yes, that was true”, but then also continue to the next line of code and run the next piece of code - return “No, that was false”.
What stops the program from stopping at the first line (return “Yes, that was true”)?

Your code so far

function trueOrFalse(wasThatTrue) {
// Only change code below this line
return "Yes, that was true";
return "No, that was false"

// Only change code above this line

function test(time){
if (time>8&&time<=13){

Ah ok, I never realised return statement ends function execution, thanks
