You need to select only anchors which are direct child of specific li element (btw, you should select only li:nth-child(4) which is direct child of #list):

$('#list > li:nth-child(4) > a').click(function() {
    $('#dropdown').slideToggle("slow");
});

Otherwise, you were including anchor in #dropdown too.
