try msgfile from zexy, if you are with pd-extended.

if not this is not easy done. you need to know the amount of lines you
have in your textfile. with this amount you "flush" it from the begin till
the end with until (think about the untiljoke: never ever start it without
a number).

with select´s "your desired phrase" bang you stop the until on its
right inlet. and voila, here on the right outlet of select shoul be the
rest of the line. if until is too fast to stop try it with a feedbacked

all the best
