    What is the significance of the following phrase?

    'May I have a large container of coffee?'

    Once I figured out the pattern I tried to add a few words to the phrase: May I have a large container of coffee while Bob makes pancakes?  The number of letters in each word gives the digits of pi: 3.14159265358. 

    The next digits are 9793238, which don't easily lend themselves to a natural sounding sentence, but maybe someone more creative can extend the phrase.

      Very good!  Here is one to 14 places: "How I want a drink, Alcoholic of course, after the heavy chapters involving Quantum Mechanics"

      And here is a short poem I found that takes Pi to 30 places.

      Now I—even I, would celebrate In Rhymes unapt the great Immortal Syracusan rivaled never more, Who in his wonderous lore Passed on before, Left men his guidance How to circles mensurate.

    I believe one could quantify that it is also transendental in nature.

      It's a question posed in the puzzle section.  Having a double meaning is kind of the entire point.
