Help me find a word in Infinite Jest

While reading Infinite Jest, I looked up a word in the dictionary only to discover that the example sentence in the definition on my Kindle was exactly the same sentence I had just read in the book.

I've since forgotten the word/sentence, and it doesn't seem to be in my bookmarks. I have a second generation Kindle, and I think it uses the New Oxford American Dictionary behind the scenes (not 100% sure).
This is a long shot (especially since this is pretty much all I remember about the situation), but does anybody know what the word was/where it was used?
