    There's the money in the box
    A: Have we any loose cash in the house?
    B: There's the money in the box over there.

    In the above dialog, why does B use "the money" instead of "some money"?

    Re: There's the money in the box

    Personal preference. Either "the" or "some" is correct. Actually, nothing before "money" is also correct.
