Fox News has a video showing the quote. Their transcript:

"They’re going to say, 'You give them bump stock, it's going to be a slippery slope.' I certainly hope so," she told a reporter at a news conference.

The entire news conference is available on Youtube (the link goes to the timecode of the relevant question). My transcript:

[In response to a question:] We've said where we wantwe'd like to go, and that is to a bipartisan place, a bipartisan bill: King-Thompson for background checks. Now there are background checks, but there are loopholes. Whether - whether they are online sales or gunshow sales, but a lot can happen for people who shouldn't getbe getting guns. WeAnd we have evidence that having the background checks has prevented hundreds of thousands if not a couple millionsmillion sales from not happening. That could have caused deaths. So as I've said, many people who are serious gun owners say "I have had"I've a background check, they should have a background check too".

But we can't ... So what? They're gonna say you give them bump stocks, it's going to be a slippery slope? I certainly hope so. But I don't think bump stock should be a substitute for the background check. And by the way, the background check is a compromise. There are many more things members want to do and we're saying "How do youwe save the most lives?" YouWe save the most lives with the background check. [...]

The answer itself only refers to what can be considered "sensible" gun control measures, specifically background checks. Seeing the entire quote, I don't think that Pelosi meant to imply that she hopes that this will lead to unreasonable gun control (taking away all guns, etc).
