Eeeee Noah!

It's sleight. Slight is in "slightly annoying" whereas "sleight" is in the magic trick sense.

I was an ER fan. I stopped watching when Noah left. Too sad.

Seasons 1-8 were the best. I stayed until 11 for the eye candy. ;)

ok, well hands down, the first 8 seasons were awesome. i loved season 6 carter the best.

yeah it's sad that noah's gone, but you know what they say...once a fan, always a fan.

yeah, that was a really stupid cliche thing to say. haha.

@u2.com and u2wanderer.com both say "Slight of hand."

My JT album is out in my car otherwise I'd check it for you.

In terms of actual definition, "sleight of hand" really would make more sense. I think I've seen it printed that way most often, rather than the other way. I was kinda surprised to see both of those pretty quality U2 sites saying it is "slight."

I'm half inclined to go out to my car just to check it in the actual album. haha.

Awesome! I didn't want to have to go out to my car to look...

though I admit I probably wouldn't have been able to fall asleep until I knew for sure...

Yeah, it's "sleight". He just pronounces it "slight" because of his beautiful Irish accent. :)

Depends where you're from. Where I live, we rhyme "sleight" with "slate".
