Does GLaDOS say anything meaningful when she “gives us the fast version” in Test Chamber 8?

When we enter the testing area, GLaDOS informs us that she has to go attend to the turbines; before she leaves, she sarcastically gives a radically sped up “explanation” of the test we face in the room. Does she say anything of note in this version? I wouldn’t know how to go about manipulating the audio to find out…

Answer

It appears to be a quote from the first paragraph of Moby Dick (thanks to Billare for figuring that out):

[…], and methodically knocking people’s hats off — then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.

The full passage in Moby Dick:

Moby Dick opening lines; "knocking hats"
