line feed/cartiage return in the legend label?

The director wants me to revise a map I made three years ago.  I finished all the changes except this last one. So close to being done! He wanted an addition to the legend for one item that results in a 150 character string. This will push the legend box way out of shape to stick the whole string in the label field of the category symbology set up.  Is there a way to get the label field in symbology to take a line feed/carriage return or maybe two so I can format this legend better?

The only other way I can think of is to make a legend with this one category with no label, another legend of all the other  categories, both without frames, position them on a colored rectangle with enough space between them that I can add the 150 character string carefully positioned and aligned  so it looks like a legend label.

Using ArcGIS Desktop 10.1, windows.
