Unfortunately there seems like there is nothing Sam can do. The wolf is in the house of the United States and there seems to be no escape.

Is the word "Enemy" found in the quote?

No.

And here is the translation again so it is on this page:

Sam! have a chance of getting the United States to escape the Wolf in his house.

Despite the presence of "the United States" the word "us" does not appear in the original quote (but it did appear in intermediate translations, which is why the United States ended up in the final translation). I will say that "Sam!" is not a translation; it is in the original.

Didn't he usually call himself "Ninnyhammer"?

No (but it is spoken to Sam).

Is the "Sam!" part an entire sentence on its own?

No, there is one additional word in the sentence.

Oh, there's "Wolf" in the quote. After the wolves' attack on the Fellowship?

"There, Sam! He will have quite as much chance of escaping wolves and getting home as we have."

Spoken about Bill the Pony outside the gates of Moria.
