    Question 'That's all that he could say.' or 'That's all he could say.'?

    Is the 'that' behind 'he' unnecessary/wrong in the following sentence?:

    That's all that he could say.

    Welcome to the forums, Abstract1467.

    It's unnecessary but not wrong.

    Yup. Both are fine, and they mean the same thing.
