It has been a good half century since I last saw this program, so forgive me for asking:

•Is this a line from the show

•an example of convoluted Pyle speech

•a translation from English, to another language with different sentence structure, and back to English again

•speaker is not conversant in English sentence structure, and is trying to say something of importance

Help?
