[something attacks him and bites him on his hand and leaves]
Bella Swan: [voice over] Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. But from what I’ve tasted of desire, I hold with those that favor fire. But if I had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice is also grave, and lots of ice.
Edward Cullen: Marry me.
Bella Swan: Change me.
Edward Cullen: Okay I will if you marry me. It’s called a compromise.
Bella Swan: It’s just called coercion.
[she goes into his arms and kisses him]
Bella Swan: Marriage is just a piece of paper.
Edward Cullen: Where I’m from it’s the way one says “I love you”.

Edward Cullen: So you’re worried about what people will think.

Edward Cullen: Well, I think you’ll find the, uh, vampire, human divorce rate is a little lower. So marry me.

Charlie Swan: You understand why you’re being punished right?
Bella Swan: I know, I put you through hell.
Charlie Swan: Yes, you did. But I have other reasons for grounding you. Like, uh, I just want you to get some separation from him.
Bella Swan: Dad, there’s nothing you can say. Edward is in my life.
Charlie Swan: So, all right, how about this? I’ll make you a deal. You’re not grounded anymore if, you use your new found freedom to see some of your other friends too, like Jacob. He’s going through a really tough time right now. His dad is really worried about him. I remember when that was you. When you needed a friend, Jake was there.

[giving Jessica advice on what to say for her graduation speech]
Mike: “My fellow students”, right?
Mike: Right? “We are the future, anything is possible if you just believe”.
Mike: Blah, blah, blah. Perfect, there you go, I just wrote your speech.
[he hands Jessica a piece of paper with the speech]
Jessica: No, this will be my speech when I want everyone to throw diplomas at my head. So…
[she crumbles up the piece of paper and throws it at Mike]
Jessica: …thank you.
Eric: We are the bread and butter of all valedictorians.

[Jasper and Alice join the others at the school cafeteria]
Alice Cullen: I’ve decided to throw a party.
[Jasper gives a sarcastic look to Edward]
Jasper Whitlock: After all, how many times are we going to graduate high school.
[Edward smiles knowingly]
Angela: A party, at your place?
Jessica: I’ve never seen your house.
Eric: No one’s ever seen their house.
Edward Cullen: Another party, Alice?
Alice Cullen: It’ll be fun.
Bella Swan: Yeah, that’s what you said the last time.
[referring to Alice having a in the school cafeteria]

Bella Swan: I think that ship sailed long ago.
Edward Cullen: There’s someone missing in Seattle over a year ago. Charlie’s doing what he can.
Bella Swan: You know something about this.
Edward Cullen: We’ve been tracking the situation in Seattle for a while. Unexplained disappearances, killings. If the situation gets anymore conspicuous the Volturi will step in.
Bella Swan: If they go to Seattle they can come here. They can see I’m still human.
Edward Cullen: It won’t get that far. We’ll go to Seattle if we have to.
Edward Cullen: Bella, my parents wanted to remind you about the airline ticket you got for your Birthday.
Charlie Swan: What airline ticket?
Bella Swan: A round trip ticket to see mom in Florida.
Charlie Swan: Well, that was generous.
Edward Cullen: It expires soon so you might want to use it this weekend.
Bella Swan: Well, I can’t just drop everything and go.
Edward Cullen: It might be the last chance you see her before you graduate.
Bella Swan: Yeah I wouldn’t mind seeing mom.
Bella Swan: As long as you use the companion ticket.
Charlie Swan: Wait, there’s two tickets?
Charlie Swan: Super! That makes me really happy.
Bella Swan: [voice over] I did want to see my mom. I wanted to know that her life was full and satisfying.
Renee: Aren’t you going to miss this. Can’t you just feel the vitamin B soaking up in your pores.
Bella Swan: Yeah, I am going to miss this.
Renee: You know colleges in Florida are a lot sunnier. I’m just saying if you go to the University in Alaska, I’m never going to see you.
Bella Swan: They have a really great science program.
Renee: You mean Edward program.
Renee: The way he watches you. It’s like he’s willing to leap in front of you to take a bullet or something.
Bella Swan: Is that a bad thing.
Renee: It’s an intense thing. You’re different with him. He moves you move, like magnets.
Bella Swan: I don’t know, we’re just…
Renee: …in love. I get it. I just want to make sure you’re making the right choices for you. You know, cause you’re the one that’s going to have to live with them.
[after Renee’s given her a graduation present, a quilt made out of strip t-shirts]
Bella Swan: This is amazing.
Renee: Ah, honey I’m glad you like it. I just figured you know, when you get older, have kids, we can add to it. Maybe go visit the world’s largest ketchup bottle or something.
[Bella hugs Renee tightly]
Bella Swan: Thanks.
Renee: Oh, I’m glad you like it. I just thought you should have a little piece of me up there in Alaska.
Bella Swan: Mom?
Bella Swan: I miss you.
Renee: Oh honey, I miss you too.
Edward Cullen: Do you regret going?
Bella Swan: No. It was really great seeing my mom. Just really hard saying goodbye.
Edward Cullen: It doesn’t have to be goodbye.
Bella Swan: Is that why you asked me to go? You thought I was going to change my mind.
Edward Cullen: I’m always hoping for that.
Edward Cullen: If I asked you to stay in the car would you?
[he gets out of the car only to see Bella getting out of the car to follow him]
Edward Cullen: Of course not!
Jacob Black: Charlie said you left town.
Bella Swan: Yeah, to visit my mom. Why?
Edward Cullen: He’s checking to see if you’re still human.
Jacob Black: Look, I’m here to warn you. If your kind come on our land again…
Bella Swan: Wait, what?
Jacob Black: You didn’t tell her?
Edward Cullen: Just leave it alone, Jacob.
Bella Swan: Tell me what?
Edward Cullen: Emmett and Paul had a misunderstanding. There’s nothing to worry about.
Jacob Black: Listen to you, did you lie to get her out of town?
Edward Cullen: Just leave. Now.
Jacob Black: She has a right to know. She’s the one he red hair wants.
Bella Swan: Victoria? Alice’s vision.
Edward Cullen: I was trying to protect you.
Bella Swan: By lying to me!
Bella Swan: Why haven’t you called me back?
Jacob Black: I have nothing to say.
[Jacobs starts to walk away]
Bella Swan: Well, I have tons. Hold on.
[Edward tries to stop Bella from going after Jacob]
Edward Cullen: Hey, Bella.
Bella Swan: Edward, you have to trust me.
Edward Cullen: I do trust you. It’s him I don’t trust.
[Bella gets on the back of Jacob’s bike]
Bella Swan: Hey, loose the grin Jacob. We’re just going for a ride.
Jacob Black: Hold on tight.
[meeting the wolf pack]
Bella Swan: Quil, you too?
Quil Ateara: Yep, finally made the pack
Embry Call: I’m glad you’re here Bella. Maybe we can get a break from Jake’s obsessive inner monologue.
[making fun of Jacob]
Paul: I wish Bella would call.
Jared: I wish Bella wouldn’t call.
Embry Call: Maybe I should call Bella.
Quil Ateara: Maybe I should call Bella and hang up.
[they all start laughing]
Jacob Black: All right, you can shut up now.
Jacob Black: Bella, this is Leah Clearwater. Harry’s daughter.
Bella Swan: Hey. I’m really sorry about your father.
Leah Clearwater: If you’re here to torture Jacob some more, feel free to leave.
[Leah walks away]
Jacob Black: Fun, isn’t she.
Bella Swan: So when did Leah join the pack?
Jacob Black: Around when her dad died. Her brother, Seth, also phased. He’s only fifteen. One of the youngest we’ve had. Sam keeps him home studying but he’s chomping at the bit. I wish it was Leah that would stay at home.
Bella Swan: Come on, don’t be such a guy.
Jacob Black: No, it’s, it’s not a chick thing. It’s, uh, you know, a triangle thing. We all have to live with Leah, Sam, Emily pain fest. Wolf telepathy remember.
Bella Swan: So he dumped Leah for Emily?
Jacob Black: No, it wasn’t like that. Sam hates himself for hurting Leah, but Emily was the one.
Jacob Black: It’s more than some crush Bella. Sam imprinted on Emily.
Bella Swan: Do I ever want to know what that is?
Jacob Black: Imprinting on someone is like, like when you see her, everything changes. All of a sudden it’s not gravity holding you to the planet, it’s her. Nothing else matters. You would do anything, be anything for her.
Bella Swan: Sounds like you know the feeling. Have you imprinted on someone?
Jacob Black: You’d know if I had. I’d just have a direct line to Sam’s thoughts.
Bella Swan: So for now you’re still you.
Jacob Black: You’re still you.
Bella Swan: Yeah. Until graduation.
Bella Swan: You knew this was going to to happen.
Jacob Black: Not in a month! I mean not before you, you’ve even lived. Or before I could…
[he throws a tool at the wall angrily]
Jacob Black: For a second, just a second I thought, but he’s got his hooks in you so deep.
Bella Swan: I decided this not him.
Jacob Black: Bella, they’re not even alive. He makes me sick. Better you really be dead than one of them.
Bella Swan: I can’t believe you said that. Edward was right, I shouldn’t have come.
Jacob Black: Bella, come on. Please, I’m sorry.
[after she’s returned home from visiting Jacob at the reservation]
Edward Cullen: Do you understand how worried I’ve been.
Bella Swan: I was perfectly safe.
Edward Cullen: I almost broke the treaty to make sure of it.
[Edward hesitates then sensing a scent]
Bella Swan: I know I smell like a dog, sorry.
[after Edward has noticed the scent of a stranger in Bella’s house]
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Someone’s orchestrating this.
Bella Swan: Victoria?
Alice Cullen: I would have seen her decide.
Edward Cullen: It has to be the Volturi.
Alice Cullen: I don’t think it’s the Volturi either.
Emmett Cullen: So we keep looking.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: We’ll also take shifts guarding Bella at her house.
Rosalie Hale: Another protection detail?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Rosie!
Bella Swan: No, she’s right. I mean you can’t protect me, watch my dad and search for the intruder.
Rosalie Hale: And for Victoria.
Bella Swan: And keep yourselves fed.
Edward Cullen: I’m not leaving you here defenseless.
Bella Swan: Well, I’m not going to let you starve, and I wouldn’t be unprotected. I have…
Edward Cullen: What?
Jacob Black: Whoever it was, he left a stink behind. It’ll be hard to miss when we cross it again. We’ll handle it from here.
Edward Cullen: We don’t need you to handle anything or anyone.
Jacob Black: I couldn’t careless what you need.
Edward Cullen: All right, we’re done here.
Jacob Black: No, you’re done here.
[Bella steps in between them]
Bella Swan: Stop! I’m tired of this. From now on I’m Switzerland, okay?
Bella Swan: [voice over] Edward hated the idea, but it wasn’t about rivalry anymore. It was about my safety and Charlie’s. In the days that followed I got them to at least try to work together. The wolves took over so the Cullen’s could hunt. It wasn’t exactly an easy alliance.
[driving towards Jacob, Edward sees Jacob standing by his car without a shirt]
Edward Cullen: Doesn’t he own a shirt?
Bella Swan: Um, I’m good here you should go.
Edward Cullen: I’m not going to be gone long.
Bella Swan: Don’t rush. You need the hunt.
[Edward kisses her]
Bella Swan: Are you sure this is okay? I really hate being a party crasher.
Jacob Black: Technically you’re a council meeting crasher. See, the council leaders, dad, Quil’s grandpa and Sue Clearwater. She took over for Harry when he died.
Bella Swan: Okay, I should not be here.
Jacob Black: You’re okay. I thought, I mean they thought it would be good for you to hear the histories.
Bella Swan: The histories? The tribe’s histories? Aren’t they secret?
Jacob Black: We’ve all got a role to play, you’re a part of this.
Jacob Black: Bella, this is Seth Clearwater, Leah’s brother. The newest member of the pack.
Seth Clearwater: Newest, bestest, brightest…
Jacob Black: …and slowest.
[Jacob playfully grabs Seth]
[to the members of the council meeting]
Billy Black: The Quileute have been a small tribe from the beginning. And we’ve always had magic in our blood. We were great spirit warriors, shape-shifters that transformed to the powerful wolf. This enabled us to scare off our enemies and protect our tribe. One day our warriors came across a creature that looked like man but was hard like stone and cold as ice.
Billy Black: Our warrior’s sharp teeth finally tore it apart, but only fire would completely destroy it. They lived in fear the cold man was not alone. They were right.
[flash back of a female vampire killing the Quileute village people]
Billy Black: She took her vengeance out on the village. Our elder chief, Taha Aki, was the only spirit warrior left to save the tribe after his son was killed. Taha Aki’s third wife would see that we would lose. The third wife was no magical being, no special powers but one. Courage.
[flash back shows third wife stabbing herself with a knife to distract the female vampire from killing Taha Aki]
Billy Black: Third wife sacrifice distracted the cold woman long enough for Taha Aki to destroy her. She saved the tribe. Over time our enemies have disappeared but one remains. The cold ones. Our magic awakens when they’re near and we sense it now, we feel the threat in our blood. Something terrible is coming and we must all be ready. All of us.
[after seeing the latest news on TV about the recent killings in Seattle]
Jasper Whitlock: It takes more than one of our kind to cause the damage they’re reporting. Quite a few more. They’re undisciplined, conspicuous.
Edward Cullen: It’s newborns.
Bella Swan: What, like new vampires?
Edward Cullen: The first few months after the change.
Jasper Whitlock: That’s when we’re at our most uncontrollable, vicious, insane with thirst.
Emmett Cullen: [to Bella] Something to look forward to.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Someone’s creating an army.
Emmett Cullen: Now we’re definitely going to Seattle.
Bella Swan: An army of vampires?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Regardless of why they were made if we don’t put a stop to them the Volturi will. I’m surprised they let it go on this long.
Edward Cullen: Maybe they’re behind it. In Italy I read Aro’s mind, he wants me and Alice to join him. He knows we’ll never choose him as long as our family is still alive.
Jasper Whitlock: An army could solve that for him.
[showing Bella a poster of a missing teenager]
Charlie Swan: This kid, Riley Biers, disappeared over a year ago. Me and his poor parents have been papering Seattle with these things ever since.
Bella Swan: You think they should just give up?
Charlie Swan: Well, I wouldn’t. If it were you, not ever.
Bella Swan: I have to figure out what to tell people. Why I won’t be home for Christmases and why I won’t visit. Why they’ll never see me again.
Edward Cullen: After a few decades, everyone you’ll know will be dead. Problem solved.
Bella Swan: Why are you so against me becoming like you?
Edward Cullen: I told you.
Bella Swan: Be honest with me. There’s more.
Edward Cullen: I know the consequences of this choice you’re making. I’ve lived through it, and to let you suffer that… You believe I have a soul and I don’t, but to risk yours just for the sake of never having to lose you is the most selfish thing I’ll ever do.
Bella Swan: I thought that you were afraid that I’d feel different and like, I wouldn’t be warm. I wouldn’t smell the same.
[he holds her closer]
Edward Cullen: You’ll always be my Bella. My Bella, just less fragile.
Jacob Black: I just want to do this differently. Smoother, but now I’m out of time.
Bella Swan: Do what?
Jacob Black: You need to hear the truth Bella. Understand all your options, and you need to know that I’m in love with you and I want you to choose me instead of him.
Bella Swan: I thought you understood. I don’t feel that way for you.
Jacob Black: I don’t buy it.
Bella Swan: What don’t you buy? That’s how I feel.
Jacob Black: You feel something else for me. You just won’t admit it. So, I’m not giving up. I’m going to fight for you, until your heart stops beating.
Bella Swan: Well, then you’re not going to have to fight for long.
Jacob Black: You’re rushing into to it because you’re afraid you’ll change your mind.
Bella Swan: No, I’m not. I know what I want.
Jacob Black: You wouldn’t have to change for me, Bella, or say goodbye to anybody. I can give you more than him. I mean he probably can’t even kiss you without hurting you.
[he takes her hand and puts it to his heart]
Jacob Black: Feel that. Flesh and blood and warmth.
[Jacob kisses her and she pushes him away and punches him in the face]
Edward Cullen: If you ever touch her against her will again…
Bella Swan: Edward! Don’t do this!
Jacob Black: She’s not sure what she wants.
Edward Cullen: Well, let me give you a clue. Wait for her to say the words.
Jacob Black: Fine. She will.
Bella Swan: Jacob, just go, okay?
[after breaking up the fight between Edward and Jacob]
Charlie Swan: What’s going on?
Jacob Black: I kissed Bella. And she broke her hand punching my face. Total misunderstanding.
[Carlisle is bandaging Bella’s hand]
Bella Swan: I punched a werewolf in the face.
Emmett Cullen: Badass! You’ll be one little tough new born.
Bella Swan: Tough enough to take you on.
[Rosalie on hearing this exchange gets angry and gets up and walks out of the room]
Rosalie Hale: Go blather to someone else about the joys of becoming a newborn.
Bella Swan: Okay. Rosalie, I don’t understand what I did to make you hate me so much.
Rosalie Hale: I don’t hate you. I don’t particularly like you, but, Bella, I envy you.
Bella Swan: What? That’s ridiculous.
Rosalie Hale: No, it’s not. You have a choice. I didn’t, none of us did, but you do and you’re choosing wrong. I don’t care how miserable your human life is.
Bella Swan: My life is not miserable. It’s not perfect, nobody’s life is perfect.
Rosalie Hale: Mine was. Absolutely perfect. There were things I still wanted. To be married with a nice house and a husband who kissed me when he came home. A family of my own.
[flash back of Rosalie in her old human life]
Rosalie Hale: [voice over] Royce King was the most eligible bachelor in town, I barely knew him. But I was young, I was in love with the idea of love. On the last night of my life I left a friend’s house late, I wasn’t far from home…
[flash back shows Royce King abusing Rosalie in front of his friends]
