Bella Swan: Childhood is not from birth to a certain age. And at a certain age the child is grown and puts away childish things. Childhood is the kingdom where nobody dies.
Alice Cullen: [referring to Bella’s wedding shoes] You just have to break them in.
Bella Swan: I’ve been breaking them in, for three days. Can I just go bare foot?
Alice Cullen: No! Absolutely not!
Bella Swan: I’m just thinking it’s a little much, you know? The dress and the shoes and all of this.
Alice Cullen: No, it’s exactly enough. Tomorrow will be perfect.
Edward Cullen: I’m just checking for cold feet.
Bella Swan: Mine are toasty warm.
Edward Cullen: It’s not too late to change your mind.
Bella Swan: What, now you’re having second thoughts? You are.
Edward Cullen: I’ve been waiting a century to marry you, Miss Swan.
Bella Swan: But? But?
Edward Cullen: I haven’t told you everything about myself.
Bella Swan: What? You’re not a virgin?
Edward Cullen: All the men I’ve killed were monsters. And so was I.
Bella Swan: Edward they were all murderers. You probably saved more lives than you took.
Edward Cullen: Bella, that’s what I told myself. But they’re all human beings. I looked into their eyes as they died, and I saw who I was and what I was capable of.
Edward Cullen: I just wondered if it would change your mind about yourself, and who you want to see when you look in the mirror a year from now.
Bella Swan: I know I can do this. Let me tell you why. Because you did. You should give yourself some credit for that. And hopefully a year from now, I’m going to look in the mirror and see someone like you. Someone capable of courage, sacrifice, and love.
Bella Swan: [referring to his bachelor party] So this party, will there be strippers?
Edward Cullen: No, just a couple of mountain lions. Maybe a few bears.
Edward Cullen: I’ll meet you at the alter.
Bella Swan: I’ll be the one in white.
Rosalie Hale: I’m not offended by your choice of groom.
Bella Swan: Just my blatant lack of respect for mortality.
Rosalie Hale: Essentially.
Alice Cullen: Weddings! They bring everyone together.
Charlie Swan: Are those graduation caps?
Renee: Hah! How creative!
Charlie Swan: Or weird.

Renee: [as they give her a jeweled hair comb] We thought you needed something blue.
Charlie Swan: And something old, besides your mother.
Charlie Swan: It was grandma Swan’s.
Renee: But we added the sapphires.
Bella Swan: It’s beautiful you guys. Wow! Thank you so much.
Renee: It’s your first family heirloom. Pass it on to your daughter, and her daughter.
Bella Swan: I love it.
Jessica: [as they’re waiting for the wedding to begin] So do you think Bella’s going to be showing?
Angela: Jess, she’s not pregnant!
Jessica: Okay. Who else gets married at eighteen?
Charlie Swan: You ready?
Bella Swan: Just don’t let me fall down.
Charlie Swan: Never.
Edward Cullen: Well, what’s a wedding without some family drama?
Emmett Cullen: I’d like to propose a toast, to my new sister. Bella I hope you’ve got enough sleep these last eighteen years. Because you won’t be getting anymore for a while.
Jessica: [giving her wedding speech] Well, Bella was just like everybody else. Totally mesmerized my Edward, or “the hair”, as I call him. And then suddenly, Edward is all about Bella. Even though she’s not the captain of the volleyball team. I’m just kidding. I’m just kidding. Or the president of the Student Council.
Charlie Swan: [giving his wedding speech] Edward will be a good husband. I know this because, because I’m a cop. I know things. Like how to hunt somebody to the ends of the earth. And I know how to use a gun.
Alice Cullen: Now that you’re my sister, you’ll have to get over your aversion to fashion.
Esme Cullen: I’d like to thank, Renee and Charlie for bringing such a wonderful person into the world and into our lives. We will cherish and protect her forever.
'Being any kind of happy is better than being miserable about someone you can't have.' - Leah (Breaking Dawn – Part 1) Click To Tweet
Edward Cullen: It’s an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to and accept you for what you are. I’ve been waiting, for what seems like a very long time, to get beyond what I am. With Bella I feel like I can finally begin. So I’d like to propose a toast to my beautiful bride. No measure of time with you will be long enough. But let’s start with forever.
Bella Swan: Where have you been? We were going to put your face on a milk carton.
Jacob Black: I was in Northern Canada. I think. It’s so weird to be back on two legs again and clothes. I fell out of practice with the whole human thing.
Jacob Black: You’d think I’d be used to telling you goodbye by now. Come on. You’re not the one supposed to be crying, Bella.
Bella Swan: Everyone cries at weddings.
Jacob Black: This is how I’ll remember you. Pink cheeks. Two left feet. Heartbeat.
Bella Swan: So, what, soon I’m going to be dead to you?
Jacob Black: No.
Jacob Black: I’m sorry. I’m just trying to appreciate your last night as a human.
Bella Swan: It’s not my last night.
Jacob Black: I thought you…
Bella Swan: I didn’t really want to spend my honeymoon writhing in pain.
Jacob Black: What’s the point? It’s not like you’re going to have a real honeymoon with him anyway.
Bella Swan: It’s going to be as real as anyone else’s.
Jacob Black: [after finding out that Bella will still be human during her honeymoon] That’s a sick joke. You are joking? What? While you’re still human? You can’t be serious, Bella! Tell me you’re not that stupid!
Bella Swan: I mean, it’s really none of your business.
Jacob Black: No! You can’t do this!
Charlie Swan: It’s going to be strange. You’re not living under my roof.
Bella Swan: Yeah. It’s going to be strange for me too.
Charlie Swan: You know it will always be your home, right?
Bella Swan: I love you, Dad. Forever.
Charlie Swan: I love you too, Bella. I always have and I always will.
Bella Swan: [as Edward picks her up to carry her over the threshold] Is this totally necessary?
Edward Cullen: I’m nothing if not traditional.
Edward Cullen: [as Bella has bruises the next day after they’ve made love] Bella, I can’t tell you how sorry I am.
Bella Swan: I’m not. Really, I’m not. I’m fine.
Edward Cullen: Don’t. Don’t say you’re fine. Just don’t.
Bella Swan: No, you don’t. Don’t ruin this.
Edward Cullen: I’ve already ruined it.
Bella Swan: Why can’t you see how perfectly happy I am. Or was five seconds ago. I mean, I’m sort of pi**ed off actually.
Edward Cullen: Well, you should be angry with me.
Bella Swan: [referring to their wedding night] We knew this was going to be tricky, right? I think we did amazing. I mean it was amazing for me.
Edward Cullen: That’s what you’re worried about? That I didn’t enjoy myself?
Bella Swan: I know it’s not the same for you. But for a human I can’t imagine it gets any better.
Edward Cullen: Last night was the best night of my existence.
Bella Swan: It was the best.
Bella Swan: You’re not going to touch me again, are you?
Bella Swan: [as Edward touches her face] You know that’s not what I mean.
Bella Swan: It was just a dream. It was a really good dream.
Edward Cullen: Then why are you crying?
Bella Swan: Because I wanted it to be real.
Edward Cullen: Tell me.
Edward Cullen: [as she kisses him] Bella, I can’t.
Bella Swan: Please. Please!
[he gives into her and they make love]
Leah: [referring to Bella] Would you just get over it? It’s not like you imprinted on her.
Seth: [referring to the rest of their pack] At least they seem happy.
Embry: Yeah. Some people are just lucky, I guess.
Jacob Black: Lucky? None of them belong to themselves anymore. And the sickest part is, their genes tell them they’re happy about it.
Leah: At least if you imprinted on someone you’d finally forget about Bella. I mean, being any kind of happy is better than being miserable about someone you can’t have.
Bella Swan: [referring to their housekeeper, Kaure] Wait. She knows about you?
Edward Cullen: She suspects. She’s native Ticuna, they have legends about blood drinking demons who prey on beautiful women.
Bella Swan: [after Bella’s been sick] Don’t come in here. You don’t need to see this.
Edward Cullen: In sickness and in health, remember?
Edward Cullen: What is it?
Bella Swan: How many days has it been since the wedding?
Edward Cullen: Fourteen. Why? Will you tell me what’s going on?
Bella Swan: I’m late. My period’s late. That’s impossible. Can this happen?
[suddenly she feels movement in her stomach]
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: [over phone] Bella, what’s going on?
Bella Swan: I don’t know, I’m a little worried. Can vampires go into shock?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Has Edward been hurt?
Bella Swan: No. I know that it’s impossible, but I think that I’m pregnant. Woh! Carlisle, I swear, something just moved inside me.
Edward Cullen: [grabs the phone from her] Is this even possible?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: I don’t know.
Edward Cullen: [in Spanish] Please. Tell me how to help her.
Kaure: You only do bad.
Edward Cullen: I am begging you. I will do anything. I love her. Please. Tell me how she can survive this.
Edward Cullen: I’m not going to let her hurt you. Carlisle will get that thing out.
Bella Swan: [as Edward walks out] Thing?
Jacob Black: You look terrible.
Bella Swan: Yeah. It’s nice to see you too.
Jacob Black: [to Edward] You did this!
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: I didn’t know it was even possible.
Jacob Black: What is it?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: I’m not sure. Ultrasounds and needles won’t penetrate the embryonic sack.
Alice Cullen: I can’t see it either, and I can’t see Bella’s future anymore.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: We’ve been researching legends, but there isn’t much to go on. What we do know is that it’s strong and fast growing.
Rosalie Hale: This is none of your business, dog!
Esme Cullen: Rose! All this fighting isn’t good for Bella.
Alice Cullen: The fetus isn’t good for Bella!
Rosalie Hale: Say the word, Alice. Baby! It’s just a little baby!
Jasper Hale: Possibly.
Jacob Black: [referring to the baby] Carlisle, you’ve got to do something.
Bella Swan: No! It’s not his decision. It’s not any of yours.
Jacob Black: I always knew you’d destroy her.
Edward Cullen: She thinks Carlisle can turn her at the last minute, like he did for me and Esme.
Jacob Black: Can he?
Edward Cullen: The probability is slight. And if her heart fails…
Edward Cullen: Look, Jacob, I need you to do something for me. For her. You have a connection with her that I’ll never understand. Maybe you could talk to her, change her mind. You could keep her alive.
Jacob Black: And if I can’t?
Edward Cullen: If she dies, you get what you always wanted. To kill me.
Bella Swan: So Edward sent you in here to talk to me?
Jacob Black: Sort of. Though I can’t figure out why he thinks you’d listen to me. I mean you never have before.
Jacob Black: What are you thinking, Bella? Seriously.
Bella Swan: I know this seems like a scary thing, but it’s not. It’s like this miracle or something. I can feel him.
Jacob Black: So it’s a bouncing baby boy. I’m sorry I didn’t know. I should have brought some blue balloons.
Bella Swan: It’s just a guess. When I picture him I see a boy. We’ll see.
Jacob Black: You won’t.
Bella Swan: Jake, I can do this. I’m strong enough.
Jacob Black: Bella, come on! You can spout that crap to your blood sucker, but you don’t fool me! I can see what that thing’s doing to you. It’s a killer, Bella!
Bella Swan: You’re wrong.
Jacob Black: And when you die, what was the point of me loving you, you loving him? How is that right for anyone? Because I sure don’t see it.
Jacob Black: Listen to me, Bella. Please! Just don’t do this! Live, okay? Please!
Bella Swan: Jake, everything’s going to be okay. Jacob, don’t go!
Jacob Black: I know how this ends, and I’m not sticking around to watch.
Sam Uley: We must destroy it before it’s born.
Seth: You mean, kill Bella?
Sam Uley: Her choice affects us all.
Jacob Black: Bella’s human, our protection applies to her.
Leah: She’s dying anyway!
Jacob Black: [to Sam] I am the grandson of Ephraim Black. I am the grandson of a chief! I wasn’t born to follow you or anyone else.
Seth: How cool is this? A two man pack! Two against the world.
Jacob Black: You’re getting on my nerves, Seth.
Seth: I’ll shut up. Can do.
Jacob Black: Get ready. They’re coming for Bella.
Edward Cullen: They’re not going to touch her.
Jacob Black: Agreed.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: No fights. We won’t be the ones to break the treaty.
Jacob Black: The treaty is void. At least in Sam’s mind.
Esme Cullen: Not in ours.
Emmett Cullen: Carlisle, no one’s hunted for weeks.
Esme Cullen: We’ll make do.
Jacob Black: Look, Seth doesn’t want you here, and neither do I.
Leah: Being unwanted isn’t exactly a new thing for me. Look, I’ll stay out of your way. I’ll do whatever you want, except go back to Sam’s pack and be the pathetic ex-girlfriend he can’t get away from. You don’t know how many times I wished I could imprint on someone, anyone.
Jacob Black: Just to break the connection.
Edward Cullen: It’s crushing you from the inside out. Carlisle, tell her what you told me. Tell her.
Bella Swan: Carlisle, tell me. It’s alright.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: The fetus is incompatible with your body. It’s too strong, it won’t allow you to get the nutrition you need. It’s starving you by the hour. I can’t stop it and I can’t slow it down. At this rate your heart will give out before you can deliver.
Bella Swan: Then I’ll hold on as long as I can and…
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Bella, there are some conditions that even venom can’t overcome. You understand? I’m sorry.
Bella Swan: Edward, I’m sorry.
Edward Cullen: I can’t live without you.
Bella Swan: You won’t. You’re going to have a part of me. He’ll need you.
Edward Cullen: Do you honestly think that I could love it? Or even tolerate it, if it killed you?
Bella Swan: It’s not his fault. You have to accept what is.
Edward Cullen: Because you’ve given me no choice!
Edward Cullen: Bella, we’re supposed to be partners, remember? But you decided this on your own, you’ve decided to leave me.
Bella Swan: Don’t see it that way!
Edward Cullen: Well, I have no other way to see it. Because it’s me who’ll lose you, and I don’t choose that. I don’t choose that.
Jacob Black: Don’t do that.
Bella Swan: What?
Jacob Black: Smile like I’m your favorite person in the world.
Bella Swan: You’re one of them. It feels complete when you’re here, Jake.
Edward Cullen: Jacob just had an idea.
Jacob Black: It wasn’t an idea. It was a snide comment.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: What were you thinking?
Jacob Black: That it’s probably just looking for someone to sink its teeth into.
Bella Swan: He’s thirsty.
Emmett Cullen: I know the feeling.
Jacob Black: [referring to the blood] Wait! You’re going to make her drink that?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: It’s the fastest way to test the theory.
Edward Cullen: Only if you’re comfortable with it.
Bella Swan: I’ll try anything.
Edward Cullen: Just hold on.
Jacob Black: I think I’m going to be sick.
Bella Swan: [over phone] Dad, don’t come. Picture me healthy, like I’m sitting on the couch with you eating pizza or something.
Charlie Swan: You want me to visualize.
Bella Swan: They say that it helps. Just picture me like that. Like I was. It’ll make me feel better.
Edward Cullen: I’m sorry I’ve been so angry.
Bella Swan: I would be too.
Edward Cullen: I’ve left you alone in this.
Bella Swan: Marriage!
Edward Cullen: Well, they say the first year is the hardest.
Edward Cullen: [as he puts his hand on her stomach] He likes the sound of your voice.
Bella Swan: You can hear him?
Edward Cullen: And mine. He likes my voice as well.
Bella Swan: What do you hear?
Edward Cullen: It’s so strange. I thought he was like me. But he’s not, he’s like you. Good and pure. He’s happy.
Bella Swan: [to the baby] Of course you are. Of course you’re happy. How could you not be? I love you so much.
Bella Swan: [referring to their unborn baby] What do you hear now?
Edward Cullen: He loves you, Bella.
Bella Swan: Oh, my gosh!
[Edward kisses her stomach]
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: If there’s anything we can do to save her, we have to try.
Jacob Black: You’d risk your lives for her?
Esme Cullen: Of course we would! Bella’s a part of our family now.
Jacob Black: Yeah, I can see that. This really is a family. As strong as the one I was born into. I know what I have to do.
Bella Swan: Hey, are you okay?
Jacob Black: Yeah, it’s not like I’m the one carrying a demon.
Bella Swan: [referring to baby names] I was playing around with our mom’s names, Renee and Esme. And I was thinking, Renesmee.
Jacob Black: Renesmee.
Bella Swan: Too weird?
Edward Cullen: No, that’s not too weird. It’s beautiful, and it’s unique. It certainly fits the situation. I like Renesmee.
Jacob Black: [as Bella screams in pain] Save her! You got to change her!
Edward Cullen: I can’t! Not whilst he’s still in there. I got to get him out first.
Jacob Black: [to Bella] Stay focused. Keep your heart beating.
Bella Swan: Jake, he’s suffocating!
Edward Cullen: [after Edwards pulls the baby out from Bella] It’s Renesmee.
Bella Swan: Beautiful.
Jacob Black: [to Edward as Bella appears to be dead] I won’t kill you. That would be too easy. You deserve to live with this.
Jacob Black: [as he imprints on Renesmee] It’s like, gravity. Your whole center shifts. Suddenly it’s not the earth holding you here. You would do anything, be anything she needs. A friend, a brother, a protector.
Edward Cullen: [as the wolves surround their house] I won’t let them hurt my family.
Jacob Black: Stop! It’s over! If you kill her, you kill me!
Edward Cullen: Jacob imprinted. They can’t hurt her. Whoever a wolf imprints on can’t be harmed. It’s their most absolute law.
Edward Cullen: She shouldn’t be this still.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: It’s the morphine.
Edward Cullen: Maybe it’s not too late.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: No, Edward. Listen to her heart.
[we then see see Bella turn into a vampire and open her eyes]
Marcus: It seems our dispute with the Cullen’s is over.
Aro: Over? Goodness, no. Our dispute goes far beyond the fate of a mere human.
Caius: And what might it be?
Aro: I always thought you understood. They have something I want.

Edward Cullen: [to Bella, referring to her new vampire form] You’re so beautiful. We’re the same temperature now.
Bella Swan: I have to get out of here!
Edward Cullen: Okay, I could help you.
Edward Cullen: [as Bella jumps off the cliff] Or not.
Edward Cullen: [to Bella] Well, I’m amazed. You ran away from human blood. You made a hunt. Even mature vampires have problems with that.
Bella Swan: You’re still here.
Jacob Black: So are you. I didn’t expect you to seem so you. Except for the creepy eyes.
Bella Swan: I would keep my distance, for now.
Jacob Black: It’s safer for the baby to see how you deal with me first.
Bella Swan: Since when do you care about Renesmee?
Jacob Black: Alright, take a whiff.
Bella Swan: [as she takes a sniff] Well, I can see what everybody’s been talking about. Jake, you really do stink.
Jacob Black: [to Edward and Bella] You guys really look great together.
Edward Cullen: [to Bella] Want to come meet our daughter?

Bella Swan: [as she sees vision of herself when she gave birth to Renesmee] What was that?
Edward Cullen: She showed you the first memory she has of you.
Bella Swan: Showed me how?
Edward Cullen: How do I hear thoughts? How does Alice see the future? She’s gifted.
Bella Swan: [referring to Renesmee looking older for a new born baby] I’ve only been out for two days?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Her growth is unprecedented.
Jacob Black: [referring to his imprinting on Renesmee] Look, it’s a wolf thing.
Bella Swan: What’s a wolf thing?
Jacob Black: You know we have no control over it. We can’t choose who it happens with. And it doesn’t mean what you think, Bella. I promise.
Bella Swan: Take Renesmee out of the room. Edward, don’t touch me right now. I don’t want to hurt you.
Bella Swan: [after throwing Jacob out of the house] You imprinted on my daughter?!
Jacob Black: It wasn’t my choice!
Bella Swan: She’s a baby!
Jacob Black: It’s not like that! You think Edward would let me live if it was?
Edward Cullen: I’m still debating it.
Bella Swan: I’ve held her once. One time, Jacob! And already you think that you have some moronic wolfie claim on her?! She’s mine!
Jacob Black: Do you remember how much you wanted to be around me three days ago? That’s gone now, right?
Bella Swan: Long gone!
Jacob Black: Because it was her. From the beginning, it was Nessie who wanted me there.
Bella Swan: Nessie?! You nicknamed my daughter after the Loch Ness Monster?!
Jacob Black: Bella, you know me, better than anyone. All I want is for Ness… Renesmee to be safe. Happy. Look, nothing ever made sense before. You, me, any of it. And now I understand why. This was the reason.
Alice Cullen: Happy Birthday.
Bella Swan: I stopped aging three days ago.
Alice Cullen: Well, we’re celebrating anyway. So suck it up.
Bella Swan: I still hate surprises, that hasn’t changed.
Alice Cullen: You’ll love this one. Welcome home!
[Bella sees their house]
Edward Cullen: This is our room.
Bella Swan: Vampires don’t sleep.
Edward Cullen: It’s not intended for sleep.
[they start kissing and make love]
Bella Swan: [after making love] You really were holding back before. I’m never going to get enough of this. We don’t get tired. We don’t have to rest, or catch our breath, or eat. I mean, how are we going to stop?
Edward Cullen: [smiles] Rosalie and Emmett were so bad. It took a solid decade before we could stand to be within five miles of them.
Bella Swan: I think we might be worse.
Edward Cullen: Definitely worse.
[they start kissing and make love again]
Emmett Cullen: [the next morning, as Bella and Edward walk into the Cullen’s house] Wow, done already?
Edward Cullen: [referring to Charlie] He’s been calling twice a day.
Jacob Black: He’s in pretty rough shape.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Eventually we’ll have to tell him you didn’t make it.
Edward Cullen: He needs to mourn, Bella.
Emmett Cullen: I’m going to miss this place.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: We’ll come back. We always do.
Jacob Black: Wait, nobody said anything about leaving.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Once people believe that Bella’s dead we can’t risk anyone seeing her.
Jacob Black: So you just disappear?
Edward Cullen: Jacob, we don’t have another choice.
Charlie Swan: I need to see Bella.
Jacob Black: Look, in order for Bella to get better, she had to change.
Charlie Swan: What do you mean, change?
Jacob Black: Here goes nothing.
Charlie Swan: [as Jacob takes starts taking his clothes off] What the hell are you doing?
Jacob Black: You don’t live in the world you think you do.
Charlie Swan: Jacob, put your clothes on.
Jacob Black: Now, this may seem strange. Really strange. But stranger thing happen every day, trust me.
[suddenly Jacob shifts into his wolf form]
Jacob Black: Look, I solved a problem. You were leaving. What did you expect me to do?
Bella Swan: You don’t realize the danger you’ve put him in. The Volturi will kill anyone who knows about us.
Jacob Black: No, I didn’t tell him about you Just me. I only said you were different.
Edward Cullen: And that we have a niece, who we adopted.
Bella Swan: I mean seriously, Jake, he’s not just going to let that go.
Edward Cullen: Did you consider the physical pain you’ll put Bella through? It’ll be like sticking a white hot branding iron down her throat, and that’s assuming she can control her thirst.
Jacob Black: Look, Charlie’s been in hell. And I know you’ll be much happier with him in your life.
Edward Cullen: Jacob, don’t try and pretend you’re doing this for anyone but yourself.
Jacob Black: I’m sorry you feel that way. Because he’ll be here in ten minutes.
Bella Swan: What?!
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: [as they prepare Bella to meet with Charlie] The main thing is not to move too fast.
Esme Cullen: Try taking as seat, crossing your legs. Maybe a tad slower.
Alice Cullen: And blink at least three times a minute.
Alice Cullen: [as Bella starts blinking] Good.
Jacob Black: For a cartoon character.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Hold your breath, it’ll help with the thirst.
Edward Cullen: Just don’t forget to move your shoulders, so it looks like your breathing.
Rosalie Hale: And don’t sit so straight. Humans don’t do that.
Bella Swan: Okay. I got it. Move around, blink, slouch.
Charlie Swan: Are you okay?
Bella Swan: Never better. Healthy as a horse.
Charlie Swan: You don’t turn into an animal too, do you?
Jacob Black: She wishes she was that awesome.
Charlie Swan: I think I deserve and explanation.
Bella Swan: You do. But if you really need one, I can’t stay here.
Charlie Swan: Oh, come on! No! No more going away!
Bella Swan: Dad, you’re just going to have to trust that for whatever reason, I’m alright. I’m more than alright. Can you live with that?
Charlie Swan: Can I live with that? Well, I don’t know, Bella. I mean, I just watched a kid I’ve known his entire life turn into a very large dog. My daughter looks like my daughter, but doesn’t.
Bella Swan: Can you just believe that I’ll tell you anything that you need to know.
Charlie Swan: And I don’t need to know this?
Bella Swan: No. Really, you don’t.
Charlie Swan: Well, I’m not going to lose you again. I can’t.
Bella Swan: Then you won’t. I promise.
Edward Cullen: Charlie, this is Renesmee.
Charlie Swan: Your niece.
Edward Cullen: Our daughter.
Charlie Swan: Right. The adoption. Renesmee? She’s got your eyes, Bella. Need to know, I guess.
Jasper Hale: [referring to Bella] I’ve never seen a new-born show that kind of restrain.
Emmett Cullen: I’m not sure she is a new-born. She’s so tame.
Edward Cullen: Emmett, don’t antagonize her. She’s the strongest one in the house.
Bella Swan: My time as a human was over, but I never felt more alive. I was born to be a vampire.
Bella Swan: Renesmee was growing too fast. We all worried how long we would have with her. It just made every moment precious.
Irina: I have to report a crime. The Cullens, they’ve done something terrible.
Aro: Allow me, my dear.
Aro: [as he takes Irina’s hand and sees Renesmee] Oh, my.
Edward Cullen: Irina thinks Renesmee’s an immortal child.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: The immortal children were very beautiful, so enchanting. To be near them was to love them. But their development was frozen at the age they were turned. They couldn’t be taught or restrained. A single tantrum could destroy an entire village. Humans heard about the devastation, stories spread, the Volturi were forced to intervene. And since the children couldn’t protect our secret, they had to be destroyed. The creators grew very attached, fought to protect them. Long established covens were torn apart, countless humans slaughtered. Traditions, friends, even families, lost.
Bella Swan: Well, Renesmee is nothing like those children. She was born, not bitten. She grows every single day.
Jacob Black: So can’t you just explain that to the Volturi?
Edward Cullen: Aro has enough proof in Irina’s thoughts.
Jacob Black: So we fight.
Bella Swan: Well then we convince them.
Emmett Cullen: They’re coming to kill us, not to talk.
Edward Cullen: No, you’re right. They won’t listen to us. But maybe others can convince them. Carlisle, we have friends all around the world.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: I won’t ask them to fight.
Edward Cullen: Not fight, witness. If enough people knew the truth, maybe we can convince the Volturi to listen.
Esme Cullen: We can ask this of our friends.
Alice Cullen: [as Bella reads Alice’s note] Gather as many witnesses as you can before the snow sticks to the ground. That’s when they’ll come.
Bella Swan: Alice’s instructions were clear, but the question remained. Why would she and Jasper leave at the moment we needed most? What did they know? Our search for witnesses began with a trip north to our closes relatives.
Bella Swan: Okay, time to meet some new people.
Renesmee: What if they don’t like me?
Jacob Black: They’ll love you.
Bella Swan: They will, once they understand you.
Jacob Black: They just haven’t met anyone like you before.
Bella Swan: Okay.
Edward Cullen: [referring to Renesmee] She has blood in her veins. You can feel her warmth.
Carmen: I can feel it.
Edward Cullen: I’m her biological father. Bella’s her mother.
Bella Swan: It’s true. She was born while I was still human.
Eleazar: I’ve never heard of such a thing.
Edward Cullen: She can show you if you let her.
Bella Swan: [after the Denalis understand that Renesmee is not immortal] I knew the rest of our family would face this fear as well. Fear of the unknown, fear of the Volturi.
Edward Cullen: Benjamin can influence the elements.
Bella Swan: And here I get super self control.
Garrett: [as he attacks a punk singing in the streets] Shut up! I hated the first British invasion. I hate the second one even more.
Emmett Cullen: Even the Beatles? Really, Garrett?
Garrett: Old habits die hard.
Rosalie Hale: Carlisle needs you.
Garrett: Sounds interesting.
English Punk: Help!
Garrett: But first, I better finish my meal.
[Garrett attacks the punk and drinks his blood]
Eleazar: You didn’t tell me your wife was a shield.
Bella Swan: What’s a shield?
Edward Cullen: The ones I’ve met are so different.
Eleazar: It’s a defensive talent.
Edward Cullen: It’s why I couldn’t read your mind even before. It’s why Aro couldn’t.
Eleazar: You have a very powerful gift.
Kate: [as she takes Bella’s hand] Oh, yeah. She’s a shield alright. It should have put her on her a**.
Garrett: Or your voltage has been exaggerated.
Kate: Maybe it only works on the weak.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Garrett, I wouldn’t.
Garrett: [after he touches Kate’s hand and is electrocuted] You are an amazing woman.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: We didn’t do what we were accused of.
Vladimir: We do not care what you did, Carlisle.
Stefan: We have been waiting a millennium for the Italian scum to be challenged.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: It is not our plan to fight the Volturi.
Vladimir: Shame, Aro’s witnesses will be so disappointed.
Stefan: They enjoy a good fight.
Edward Cullen: This is all about Alice, he has no one like her.
Bella Swan: Which is why she left!
Emmett Cullen: But why does he need witnesses?
Alistair: To spread the word that justice has been served, after he slaughters an entire coven.
Edward Cullen: [as some of the vampires want to leave] And where will you go? What makes you think they’ll be satisfied with Alice? What’s to stop them from going after Benjamin next? Or Zafrina, or Kate, or anyone else with a gift, anyone they want. They’re goal isn’t punishment. It’s about power, it’s acquisition. Carlisle might not ask you to fight, but I will. For the sake of my family, but also for yours, and for the way you want to live.
Jacob Black: The packs will fight, we’ve never been afraid of vampires.
Tanya: We will fight.
Garrett: This won’t be the first time I’ve fought a king’s rule.
Benjamin: We’ll join you.
Benjamin: I will do the right thing, Amun. You may do as you please.
Senna: We will stand with you.
Siobhan: So will we.
Vladimir: That didn’t take much.
Edward Cullen: Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.
Alistair: We’ll see.
Bella Swan: Everyone showed courage, though we knew that Aro’s army was moving against us. Soon we would face the dark gifts of Jane. And worse the paralyzing vapor of her brother Alec, who could rob of you sight, sound, and touch.
Kate: [as she tries to help Bella develop her power] I think she needs something to motivate her.
Bella Swan: No.
Edward Cullen: It’s alright, I can take it.
Garrett: He says that now.
Renesmee: Did Aunt Alice and Uncle Jasper run away because we’re going to die?
Bella Swan: No. I think they left to keep us safer, and that’s what all these other people are here for too. I’ll never let anybody hurt you.
Bella Swan: It’s strange. Physically, I feel like I could demolish a tank. Mentally, I just feel drained.
Edward Cullen: How about a bath?
Bella Swan: [as Edward starts to kiss and undress her] I do remember how to undress myself.
Edward Cullen: Yeah, I just do it so much better.
Edward Cullen: Bella, I’ve had a bad habit of underestimating you. Every obstacle you’ve faced, I’d think you couldn’t overcome it, and you just did. You’re the reason I have something to fight for, my family.
Bella Swan: [after she reads the message Alice left for her] Alice made sure only I would get the message, because only my mind would be safe from Aro.
Jacob Black: Surprised you took a break from Jedi training.
Bella Swan: If I don’t take Renesmee to my dad, he’ll come to us. Twenty-seven vampires, one human, not so great.
Jacob Black: I know that’s what you told Edward. Whatever. I’m just glad to get away from all the reeking blood suckers. I’m sorry. I know, they’re the good guys. But come on. Dracula one and two are creepy!
Bella Swan: Alice’s vision was clear. Renesmee would have a future, but Edward and I wouldn’t be a part of it.
Bella Swan: [as she writes a letter for Renesmee] My dearest Renesmee, I thought we would have forever together. But forever isn’t as long as I’d hoped. I know now why Alice left me clues. It’s to keep you safe. Everything you and Jacob will need is in this pack. Jacob will protect you and he’ll help you learn about the Tekona legends.
Alistair: [to Bella] It’s a romantic notion, isn’t it? That a righteous few can defy a great evil. But I must admit you even had me believing, for a moment. Well, good luck. You’re going to need it.
Jacob Black: [as Benjamin uses his powers to start a fire in the woods] That’s what I’m talking about. A little pre-battle bonfire, telling war stories.
Garrett: Name any American battle. I was there.
Jacob Black: Little Big Horn.
Garrett: I came this close to biting Custer, but the Indians caught him first.
Kate: Try Oleg’s assault on Constantinople. He didn’t win that one on his own.
Liam: If you’re talking battles, you’re talking the Eleven Years War. No one does rebellion like the Irish.
Garrett: You lost the Eleven Years War.
Liam: Aye, but it was one hell of a rebellion.
Vladimir: When we ruled everything came to us. Prey, diplomats, favor seekers. Such was our power, but we never put on white hats and called ourselves saints.
Stefan: We were honest about what we were.
Edward Cullen: I can’t help thinking, all these people are putting themselves in danger because I fell in love with a human.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: You found your mate, you deserve to be happy.
Edward Cullen: But at what cost?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Everyone here has something to fight for. I certainly do.
Edward Cullen: Carlisle, I’ve never thanked you, for this extraordinary life.
Bella Swan: [to Renesmee, referring to message engraved in the locket] This means “more than my own life”, and that’s how much I love you. Tomorrow I’m going to need you to stay with Jacob, no matter what. Even if I tell him that he has to take you somewhere. Hey, baby. It’s alright. You’re going to be safe. Always.
Garrett: If we live through this, I’ll follow you anywhere, woman.
Kate: Now you tell me?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Aro, let us discuss things as we used to, in a civilized manner.
Aro: Fair words, Carlisle. But a little out of place given the battalion you’ve assembled against us.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: I can promise you, that was never my intent. No laws have been broken.
Caius: We see the child, do not treat us as fools.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: She is not an immortal! These witnesses can attest to that. You can look. See the flush of human blood in her cheeks.
Aro: I will collect every facet of the truth, but from someone more central to the story. Edward, as the child clings to your new-born mate, I assume you are involved.
Aro: Ah, young Bella. Immortality becomes you.
Aro: [referring to Renesmee] Half mortal, half immortal. Conceived and carried by this new-born, while she was still human.
Aro: Do you think they fooled me, brother?
Irina: She’s changed! This child is bigger.
Caius: Then your allegations were false.
Irina: The Cullens are innocent. I take full responsibility for my mistake.
Irina: [looking towards her family] I’m sorry.
Edward Cullen: Caius, no!
[Felix hits Irina and snaps her head off]
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Aro, you see there’s no law broken here.
Aro: Agreed. But does it then follow that there is no danger?
Aro: [to his army] For the first time in our history, humans pose a threat to our kind. Their modern technology has given birth to weapons that could destroy us. Maintaining our secret has never been more imperative. In such perilous times, only the known is safe. Only the known is tolerable, and we know nothing of what this child will become. Can we live with such uncertainty? Spare ourselves a fight today, only to die tomorrow.
Aro: My dear, dear Alice, we’re so glad to see you here after all.
Alice Cullen: I have evidence the child won’t be a risk to our kind. Let me show you.
Alice Cullen: [as Aro reads her thoughts] It doesn’t matter what I show you. Even when you see, you still won’t change your decision.
Alice Cullen: [after Alice shows Aro the vision of the battle and how everyone is killed] Now you know. That’s your future, unless you decide on another course.
Caius: We cannot alter our course, the child still poses a grave threat.
Edward Cullen: But if you were sure she could remain concealed from the human world? Could we leave in peace?
Caius: Of course, but that cannot be known.
Edward Cullen: Actually, it can.
Nahuel: I am half human, half vampire, like the child. A vampire seduced my mother, who died giving birth to me. My aunt Huilen raised me as her own. I made her immortal.
Bella Swan: How old are you?
Nahuel: A hundred and fifty years.
Aro: At what age did you reach maturity?
Nahuel: I became full grown seven years after my birth. I’ve not changed since then.
Aro: And your diet?
Nahuel: Blood, human food. I can survive on either.
Marcus: These children are much like us.
Caius: Regardless, the Cullens have been consorting with werewolves, our natural enemies.
Aro: Dear ones, there is no danger here. We will not fight today.
Aro: [before leaving Aro looks at Alice and Bella] Such a prize.
Jacob Black: [referring to Renesmee] She’s going to be around for a long time, isn’t she?
Edward Cullen: A very long time. I’m glad she has you.
Jacob Black: Should I start calling you dad?
Edward Cullen: No.
Bella Swan: [as Bella listens to Renesmee’s thoughts] Yeah, we’re all going to be together now.
Bella Swan: [Edward and Bella are back in their meadow] I want to show you something.
Edward Cullen: What?
Edward Cullen: [as Bella lifts her shield and shows him her memories of their time together] How did you do that?
Bella Swan: I’ve been practicing. Now you know, nobody’s ever loved anybody as I much as I love you.
Edward Cullen: There’s one exception.
Edward Cullen: Can you show me again?
Bella Swan: We got a lot of time.
Edward Cullen: Forever.
Bella Swan: Forever.
[Bella and Edward kiss]
