Our Favorite Quotes:'Every choice has its consequences. Some more than others.' - Jacob Black (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) Click To Tweet
Bella Swan: Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. 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 great, and would suffice.
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.
Bella Swan: Marriage is just, it’s a piece of paper.
Edward Cullen: Where I’m from, it’s the way one says, “I love you”.
Bella Swan: Well, where I come from, at my age, it’s the way one says, “I just got knocked up”.
Edward Cullen: So, you’re worried about what people will think?
Bella Swan: You know, two out of three marriages end in divorce.
Edward Cullen: Well, I think you’ll find the vampire-human divorce rate is a little lower. So marry me.
Bella Swan: I can’t.
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 I just want you to get some separation from him.
Bella Swan: Dad, there’s nothing you can say. Edward is in my life.
Edward Cullen: [as he tries to stop her from seeing Jacob] Bella, you have to understand. Your safety is everything to me.
Bella Swan: Jacob’s not going to hurt me.
Edward Cullen: Not intentionally, but the wolves have no control.
Bella Swan: Edward, I have until graduation to see him. And then I’ll be one of you, and he’ll hate me forever.
Edward Cullen: Well, I’m sorry.
Mike: [referring to her graduation speech] You got to embrace the clichés, Jess.
Eric: They are the bread and butter of all valedictorians.
Angela: And that is why you are not a valedictorian.
Bella Swan: And Jess doesn’t need clichés. The speech is going to be epic.
Jessica: Epic? It’ll change lives.
Bella Swan: [referring to Alice having a vision] I know you know what she saw. Tell me.
Edward Cullen: It was nothing.
Bella Swan: You looked worried.
Edward Cullen: Just that everyone noticed how strange Alice is.
Bella Swan: I think that ship sailed long ago.
Renee: Aren’t you going to miss this? Can’t you just feel the vitamin D 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 of Alaska, I’m never going to see you.
Bella Swan: They have a really great science program.
Renee: You mean, Edward program?
Renee: [referring to Edward] The way he watches you, it’s like he’s willing to leap in front of you and 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, because you’re the one that’s going to have to live with them.
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.
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.
Bella Swan: Edward, you have to trust me.
Edward Cullen: I do trust you. It’s him I don’t trust.
Bella Swan: [as she gets on the back of Jacob’s bike] Hey, loose the grin Jacob. We’re just going for a ride.
Jacob Black: Hold on tight.
Embry Call: I’m glad you’re here, Bella. Maybe we can get a break from Jake’s obsessive inner monologue.
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.”
Jacob Black: Alright, you can shut up now.
Jacob Black: I wish it was Leah who’d stay at home.
Bella Swan: Come on, don’t be such a guy.
Jacob Black: No, it’s not a chick thing. It’s, 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: Yeah, 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 even want to know what that is?
Jacob Black: Imprinting on someone is 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 just have a direct line to Sam’s thoughts.
Bella Swan: So for now you’re still you.
Jacob Black: And you’re still you.
Bella Swan: Yeah. Until graduation.
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. It 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.
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 could care less what you need.
Edward Cullen: Alright, we’re done here.
Jacob Black: No, you’re done here.
Bella Swan: Stop! I’m tired of this. From now on, I’m Switzerland, okay?
Bella Swan: 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 Cullens could hunt. It wasn’t exactly an easy alliance.
Edward Cullen: [as he sees Jacob without a shirt] Doesn’t he own a shirt?
Bella Swan: 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.
Bella Swan: [as Edward kisses her] Maybe rush a little bit.
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.
Billy Black: The Quileute have been a small tribe from the beginning. But we have 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. It looked like man, but it was hard like stone and cold as ice. 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.
Billy Black: 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.
Edward Cullen: [referring to new vampires] In 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: Well, now we’re definitely going to Seattle.
Bella Swan: An army of vampires?
Charlie Swan: This kid, Riley Biers, disappeared over a year ago. 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 know will be dead. Problem solved.
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, that’s the most selfish thing I’ll ever do.
Bella Swan: I thought that you were afraid that I’d feel different. You know, like I wouldn’t be warm. And I wouldn’t smell the same.
Edward Cullen: You’ll always be my Bella. My Bella, just less fragile.

Jacob Black: I just wanted 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.
Jacob Black: [as he puts her hand to his heart] Feel that. Flesh and blood and warmth.
[Jacob then kisses her, 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! Ans she will.
Bella Swan: Jacob, just go. Okay?
