Sorry! I forgot! (I keep wanting to say Sean Ferguson but it's been a while since I posted that joke).

I'll look it up when I get home, or if someone wants to jump in before then, please feel free.

Wait, it's still me. Sorry!

I had to go back one step as the final translation was oddly changed.

I did not benefit, but I only saw the meaning of a mystery.

And the next step was "Should I explain to you the meaning of a closed door," which is no help.

Wow that’s some change in one step.

From The Hobbit?

Then Bilbo possibly?

I thought of "I am not a thief, whatever he said", but that doesn't have the word "mystery" in it.

Is this it, perhaps?
