I'm sorry but this translation seems HIGHLY improbably to me.  First of all,
although we all have some minor disagreements, so far just about everyone
agrees the first word is "J'ai une..." then either "homme" but probably "ame"
and then finally "chaud de terre" or "solitaire."

I think this is just a product of trying to hard to hear something that makes
sense at the moment.
And even if he did say "sur" this means "on" and not "under" (you are thinking
of "sous" -- uh oh, now you are going to say that fits even better, right?)

I think this phrase, like about 95% of the info we get on Twin Peaks, will
become relavent all in due time...
