Yep. I occasionally need to put 11000 lines into a variable.

put theScript into tVariable
filter tVariable with "put*"
filter tVariable without "* into *"
filter tVariable without "* before *"
filter tVariable without "* after *"
if the number of lines in tVariable is 1 then
  find tVariable
end if

should get you close.
