you can add the entire phrase to the search box, common words were excluded but with rather uncommon words like "spare" and "rod" in the same search request you shouldn't have problems with too many results.

keep in mind that the default search delivers posts (or threads) having all words included in either one message or post title (means: more keywords same time = less results)
