Movie Clip as a Button Activates Whole Movie, Not Just Clip Itself

I've got the following script on a movieclip:

onClipEvent (load) {
     this.stop();
}
onClipEvent (mouseDown) {
         // on(release)
         hidetoc();  
}

It works, but ANYWHERE in the whole movie.  It's not exclusive to the shape within the movieclip.  I need the action to be executed ONLY when I click on the actual shape within the movie clip.

Thanks,
Brandon

one parenthesis missing:

onClipEvent (load) {
    this.stop();
}
onClipEvent (mouseDown) {
        // on(release)
      if(this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, true)){
              hidetoc();
      }
}

Ah, to make sure the movie clip was actually clicked.

Thanks again!
