Find a Phrase in a File

Hi there,

I have a 56 mb text file, all the text on one line.  I want to find a
certain phrase and show a few words before and after each occurance.
Is there an easy way to do that on the command line that I'm
overlooking?  grep just shows the whole line so that doesn't really
help me.

Let me know if you have any ideas.
