I'm not entirely sure what you want to accomplish by this, but you can script your own dialogs to pop up on the hotlink event.

Code:
on *:hotlink:test:*:{
  if ($hotlink(event) == rclick) { hotlink -m @menu }
}

menu @menu {
  Test:echo test
}

Ah, I see. Didn't know menus could be used in such a way.
That's actually really useful!

How would I use this to return the full sentence?

I tried something generic such as
"Hello good sir!", matching "*sir*" and echoing $1- would only return just "sir!".

$1 is filled only with the word which was clicked, passing anything else requires setting something with global scope: a variable, hash table, or other.

Code:
on *:hotlink:test:*:{
  if ($hotlink(event) == rclick) {
    set %hotline $hotline
    hotlink -m @menu
  }
}

menu @menu {
  Test:echo test %hotline $1
}
