In this paper, I raise an objection to the criterion of the intrinsic/extrinsic distinction proposed by David Denby in his article `The Distinction between Intrinsic and Extrinsic Properties' (2006). I show that the extrinsic property of being either red and lonely or green cannot adequately be accounted for by Denby's criterion and argue that this difficulty points to a general problem inherent to Denby's account.
