    Here's a clue. It's a two word phrase.

    He uses "that was" a great deal; as in, "If she'd been thinking straight, that was."

    My first impulse was, "Can you dig it?" :) Can't think of many of Mr King's books where that phrase isn't used at least once. As deft as he is with language, that is one verbal (or in this case, written), era-specific tic that has stuck with him.

    Two words, though... got me (for now. Though my mind will worry at it like a rat terrier--lol).

    I remember that an old member from the old board had a big problem with that too.

    I still think Spidey may have got it with "Boo-yah!" (can't wait for Christine to log in...)

    And my next quiz question is:

    What is Mr. King's favorite obscure adjective?

    It's usually pops up in a vengeful character or situation.
