The manual talks about setting your summary line, and using
user-defined functions.  You could write a user function that would
take the first few words from the body of the mail and place it into
the summary line.

,----[ C-h v gnus-summary-line-format RET ]
| gnus-summary-line-format is a variable defined in `gnus.el'.
| Documentation:
| *The format specification of the lines in the summary buffer.
| It works along the same lines as a normal formatting string,
| with some simple extensions.
| [snip] 
| %u   User defined specifier.  The next character in the format string should
|      be a letter.  Gnus will call the function gnus-user-format-function-X,
|      where X is the letter following %u.  The function will be passed the
|      current header as argument.  The function should return a string, which
|      will be inserted into the summary just like information from any other
|      summary specifier.
