comment what is the verb used when getting rid of evil spirits
Indeed, I said that explicitly, but it still does have this use. One also sees it a lot in fictional portrayals of exorcism. I think it's a relevant response.

comment Phrase for a situation where a problem disappears when you are about to fix it, but reappears later
As a slight variation on that, in programming contexts I often see discussed "non-reproducible errors."

comment what are other idioms one can use to express getting on well with someone?
@Kris BTW, if the downvote was by you, I am somewhat puzzled by that. If you care to explain, I would appreciate it.

comment what are other idioms one can use to express getting on well with someone?
@Kris Actually, we do both. Searching online is certainly a great tool, but that wouldn't mitigate the fact that I have no first-hand experience with the phrase. There are likely nuances in usage or implication which wouldn't be easily gleaned from a dictionary-style reference and could only be picked up from natural experience with the usage in verbal or written contexts. Nevertheless, thank you for the link.
