What is the most repeated phrase used by any writer?

I noticed that Bendis uses this line in most of his books.
>>
Mark Millar. More repetitive in tone of the dialogue as in his characters all sound like teenagers who watched too much 90s MTV and want to appear cool gangstas.

Plus
>DID YOU REALLY THINK?
>shithead or meathead if the book doesn't allow harsh language
>>

Bendis most repetitive dialogue exchange has to be his:
>No.
>No?
I swear it's on every single one of his comics.
>>
Bendis also likes "I should have done this YEARS ago" when starting a book, especially when a character fucks off to space.

Simon Furman. /Thread.

>>78792235

Mignola uses "It's true" a lot when he's writing
>>
>>78792645
So only twice?
>>
>>78792379
>Did you really think?
Yeah, Millar did that weird thing where he would always have his characters deliver expository dialogue in the form of rhetorical questions. His dialogue was generally pretty bad, come to think of it.
>>
>>78792235
>NARRRRRGH
>>
>>78793598
He showed remarkable restraint in his comeback issue with Plas, only one NARRGH in the whole thing.
>>
>>78792235
Morrison had Batman uttering *hh* every now and then. I think it implies grunting or something.
>>
>>78792235
Woah, is that Vanisher?
>>
>>78792235
I've noticed Frank Miller repeating a couple of words from the previous sentence for emphases.

emphases .
>>
Simon Furman uses loads of little distinctive phrases over and over in his Transformers books.
TFWiki has a page on his "Furmanisms"
>>
>>78793624
That issue was so good too. I read it in a story time a week or so back.

Always reminded me of Rorschach's weird vocal tics

What was 'tt' supposed to be? If it's what I think it is, I've been doing it for years.
>>
>>78794182
I believe "tt" is the sound usually rendered as "tch".
>>
>>78793677
Metal gear?
>>
>>78794182
Shove your tongue hard against your two front teeth/the roof of your mouth, suck all th air out of your mouth, then pull your tongue away from your teeth/roof of your mouth.

That's what 'tt' sounds like
>>
>>78793677
Frank Miller's go-to word is PUNK.

He uses it for everything.
>>
>>78794681
That and WHORE
>>
>>78792379
Don't forget "Drop dead!" and "Little Man" used as an insult. I also remember "Oh dear God" used multiple times.
