Intersect Tool returns 1 million *connected* rows - why does it not join them?

Hi All:

I have a layer with around 8000 polygons and and layer with 1 polyline - the intersect tools returns almost 1 million rows; however, most of those rows are connected (they have the same end XY and start XY and the source was the same polygon).

Is there any way to tell the intersect tool to combine rows that have the same end/start coordinates and are related to the same polygon there were created from?
