It... I think it (does something)

When people speak English in the real world, they don't always form sentences perfectly. We often change a sentence in the middle like this:

You're... You and Bernice are getting... you're engaged now, right?

So the speaker's first plan for what to say might have been "You're getting married, right?" Then, in the middle, it changed to "You and Bernice are getting married, right?", and then to "You and Bernice are engaged now, right?"

When you change your mind on how to form a sentence, you just back up and repeat the important parts of the sentence. You can also repeat parts of a sentence after a pause:

Jae is... Jae is smart, but he's not good at focusing.
