    They didn't do anything that was out of the ordinary.

    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    out of the ordinary
    : unusual, different, or strange : not what is considered to be normal
    ▪ What happened is nothing out of the ordinary.
    ▪ They didn't do anything that was out of the ordinary.
    ▪ Her taste is a bit out of the ordinary.

    Is that was necessary?
