Edward Cullen: The Volturi are a very old, very powerful family, I guess they’re the closest thing to royalty my world has.
Bella Swan: Is that Carlisle?
Edward Cullen: Yeah. He lived with them for a few decades. He describes them as very refined. No respect for human life, of course, but respect for the arts and science as at least. And the law, above all of law.
Bella Swan: Vampires have laws?
Edward Cullen: Not very many. There’s only one that’s regularly enforced.
Bella Swan: What is it?
Edward Cullen: That we keep the existence of our kind a secret. We don’t make spectacles of ourselves. And we don’t kill conspicuously. Unless, of course, you want to die.
Edward Cullen: Bella, the only thing that can hurt me is you. And I don’t have anything else to be afraid of.
Bella Swan: I can protect you. If you change me.
Edward Cullen: Bella, you already do protect me. You’re my only reason to stay alive, if that’s what I am. But it’s my job to protect you.
Emmett Cullen: Dating an older woman? Hot.

Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Get Jasper out of here.
Alice Cullen: I’m sorry, I can’t.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Jasper hasn’t been away from human blood as long as the rest of us.
Bella Swan: How do you do it?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Years and years of practice.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: I knew who I wanted to be. I wanted to help people. Brings me happiness. Even if I’m damned about this.
Bella Swan: Damned? Like hell? Carlisle, you can’t be damned. You couldn’t, it’s impossible.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Thank you, Bella. You always been very gracious about us.
Bella Swan: So, that’s it? That’s why he won’t change me?
Dr. Carlisle Cullen: Imagine the situation in reverse. If you believed as Edward does, would you take away his soul?
Bella Swan: You can’t protect me. From everything. At some point, somethings going to separate us. It’s going to be an accident, or illness, or old age. As long as I’m human. And the only solution is to change me.
Edward Cullen: That’s not a solution, it’s a tragedy.
Bella Swan: You’re not going to love me when I look like a grandmother.

Edward Cullen: No, you don’t.
Bella Swan: I’m coming.
Edward Cullen: Bella. I don’t want you to come.
Bella Swan: You don’t want me?
Edward Cullen: No.
Bella Swan: This changes things. All right.
Edward Cullen: But if it’s not too much to ask, can you at least promise me something? Don’t do anything reckless. For Charlie’s sake. And I’ll promise something to you in return. This is the last time you’ll ever see me. I won’t come back. And you can go on with your life without any interference from me. It will be like I never existed, I promise.
Edward Cullen: You’re just not good for me.
Bella Swan: I’m not good enough for you?
Edward Cullen: I’m just sorry, I let this go on for so long.
Bella Swan: Please, don’t.
Edward Cullen: Goodbye.
[he kisses her forehead and walks away]
Bella Swan: Edward? Edward! Edward!
[reading from the email that she’s written to Alice but can’t send to her]
Bella Swan: [voice over] Alice, you’ve disappeared. Like everything else. But who else can I talk to? I’m lost. When you left, and he left. You took everything with you. But the absence of him is everywhere I look. It’s like a huge hole has been punched through my chest. But in a way I’m glad. The pain is my only reminder that he was real, that you all were.
Bella Swan: I’m not leaving Forks.
Charlie Swan: Bells, he’s not coming back.
Bella Swan: I know.
Charlie Swan: It’s just not normal, this behavior. Quite frankly, it’s scaring the hell out of me, and you Mother. Baby, I don’t want you to leave. I don’t. But just go. Go to Jacksonville, make some new friends.
Bella Swan: I like my old friends.
[talking to Bella whose walking silently by her]
Jessica: I don’t know why you want to sit through all those zombies eating people, and no hot guys kissing anybody. It’s gross. Like why are there that many zombie movies anyway? Is it supposed to like draw a parallel about leprosy? My cousin had leprosy, it’s not funny, you know? And like is it supposed to be a metaphor for consumerism? Because don’t be so pleased with your own like self-reverential cleverness, you know? Like, some girls like to shop. Not all girls, apparently. Although I was surprised you even called at all, you know? Like, your depression thing. I’m totally, totally worried. After a while, it’s like, she’s still bumming? And I’m going through stuff too, you know? Like Mike deciding he wanted to “I just be friends? ” That’s hard, you know?
[Bella sees Edward apparition when she walks over to some Bikers]
Edward Cullen: You promised me nothing reckless.
Bella Swan: You promised, it would as you never existed. You lied.
[after going on a ride with some biker she’s just met]
Jessica: Hey, um, what the hell is wrong with you? Just curious.
Bella Swan: I thought that I saw something.
Jessica: You’re insane, actually. Or suicidal. That homeboy could have been a psycho. I was about to end up in a FBI interview room, like some lame TV show.
Bella Swan: Oh, that was such a rush.
Jessica: Awesome! So, you’re an adrenaline junky now? That’s cool! You can go bungee jumping. You don’t get on the back of some random loser’s motorcycle! Crazy!
Bella Swan: [voice over] Alice, I saw him. Maybe I’m crazy now, but I guess that’s okay. If the rush of danger is what it takes to see him, then that’s what I’ll find.
Bella Swan: I, uh, brought you something.
Jacob Black: Okay.
Bella Swan: It’s a little crazy.
Jacob Black: Wow, scrap metal! You shouldn’t have.
Bella Swan: I saved them from the junkyard. I think, they’ll probably cost more to fix than they’re worth.
Jacob Black: Since when are you into motorcycles?
Bella Swan: Since now. I get it if you think that this is really stupid and reckless.
Jacob Black: Yeah, it’s completely stupid and reckless. When do we start?
Bella Swan: Jake, you’re like buff. How that can happen? You’re like 16, I don’t get it.
Jacob Black: Age is just a number, baby. What, you’re like 40, now?
Bella Swan: Feels like that sometimes.
Bella Swan: So I was thinking, if we’re going to do this every day, and hopefully we will, we have to, like, fit some homework in there somewhere. I don’t want Billy thinking that I’m a bad influence on you.
Jacob Black: You influence me? Please.
Bella Swan: Are you…? I’m older than you. So that makes me the influencer and you the influencee.
Jacob Black: No, no, no. My size and knowledge base actually makes me older than you. Because of your gentle paleness and lack of know-how.
Bella Swan: I convinced you to build two-wheeled death machines with me. Don’t you think that makes you funny, young and naive?
Jacob Black: Okay. So, where do we stand?
Bella Swan: I’m thirty five and you might be like thirty two.
Jacob Black: Come on!
Quil Ateara: So the bike building story is true.
Bella Swan: Oh, yeah, yeah! I taught him everything he knows.
Quil Ateara: What about the part where you’re his girlfriend?
Bella Swan: Uh, we’re friends, you know?
Embry Call: Oooh. Burn!
Jacob Black: Actually, I remember, I said she’s a girl and a friend.
Quil Ateara: Embry, do you remember him making that distinction?
Embry Call: Nope!
Bella Swan: [voice over] Dear Alice, I wish, I had your real address. I wish, I could tell you about Jake. He makes me feel better. I mean, he makes me feel alive. The hole in my chest while when I’m with Jake, it’s like, it almost healed. For a while.
Jacob Black: Quil keeps asking to come over. I think he likes you a little too much.
Bella Swan: Oh, I’m really not into the whole cougar thing, you know?
Jacob Black: What’s up with you and age? I mean, how old was that Cullen guy anyway?
[to Bella after she’s woken up screaming from another bad dream]
Charlie Swan: Can I ask you something? Hanging out with Jacob does seems to take your mind off things for a bit, doesn’t it? You know, sometimes you got to learn to love what’s good for you. You know, what I mean? Of course, what do I know? I’m just a terminal bachelor. Famous ladies man. Okay, go to bed.
Bella Swan: Is that Sam Uley?
Jacob Black: Yeah, and his cult.
Bella Swan: Oh, my God! Did you see that?
Jacob Black: They’re not really fighting, Bella. They’re cliff diving. Scary as hell,
but a total rush.
Bella Swan: Rush?
Jacob Black: We’ll leave the showing off to Sam and his disciples.
Bella Swan: You have some kind of beef with them or something?
Jacob Black: Oh, no. They just think they run this place. Embry used to call them hall monitors on steroids. Now, look at him.
Bella Swan: That’s Embry?
Jacob Black: Yeah.
Bella Swan: What happened to him?
Jacob Black: He missed some school and all of a sudden he started following Sam around like a little puppy. Same thing with Paul and Jared. Sam keeps giving me this look, like he’s waiting for me or something. It’s kind of starting to freak me out.
Bella Swan: Well, you should just avoid him.
Jacob Black: I’ll try.
[after falling off her motorcycle]
Bella Swan: I want to go again.
Jacob Black: Are you trying to get yourself killed?
Bella Swan: I’ll try again.
Jacob Black: No, forget it. No more bikes. Man, your head.
[Bella touches her head]
Bella Swan: Ow! Oh my God, I’m sorry.
Jacob Black: You’re apologizing for bleeding?
Bella Swan: Yeah, I guess, I am.
Jacob Black: It’s just blood, Bella. No big deal.
[after Jacob takes off t-shirt to wipe off Bella’s blood]
Jacob Black: What are you staring at?
Bella Swan: You’re sort of beautiful.
Jacob Black: How hard did you hit your head?
Angela: I’m telling you, I saw something in the woods!
Eric: Totally, baby. I believe you.
Jessica: No he doesn’t. He’s just trying to get lucky.
Angela: It was jet black and huge. On all fours it was still taller than a person. A bear, maybe?
Mike: Or an alien. You’re lucky you didn’t get probed.
Jessica: Oh, Yeah.
Angela: Well, I saw it.
Bella Swan: You know, you’re not the only one. My Dad’s been getting reports at the station. Like five hikers been killed by some bear. But they can’t find the bear.
Eric: Ha-ha-ha-ha. Last time you clowns doubt my girlfriend!
Mike: So listen, not now, now that, you know, you’re, uh, talking and eating again, which you know? You got to get that protein in there.
[pokes Bella’s stomach]
Mike: I was just wondering, if you wanted to go see a movie with me.
Bella Swan: Yeah, sure. Yeah I do.
Mike: Cool, um, let me see. We could check out, um, “Love spelled backwards is love.” Yeah, it’s a dumb title, but, um, it’s a romantic comedy. I mean, it’s supposed to be…
Bella Swan: No. No romance. Uh, how about “Face Punch”? You heard of that?
Mike: I mean it’s an action movie.
Bella Swan: Yeah, it’s perfect. With guns, adrenaline, it’s my thing.
Mike: Okay, so…
Bella Swan: We should get a bunch of people to go. Do you guys want to go see…
Eric: “Face Punch”? Yeah! Mike, hey, we were supposed to watch that? Remember the trailer’s like “Pew, pew! Punch faces”.
Jessica: [sarcastically] Movie night with Bellllllaaaaaaa!
Jacob Black: So, “Face Punch”, huh? You like action movies?
Mike: Not really.
Jacob Black: I heard it sucks. Bad.
Mike: You know, are you even old enough to see this movie? I mean, you know, without like adult supervision?
Jacob Black: Right, yeah. Well, she’s buying my ticket for me.
Bella Swan: Jessica bailed and Angela got the stomach flu, so Eric’s taking care of her. It’s just us three.
Jacob Black: Great.
[referring to Mike whose vomiting in the bathroom from watching the movie]
Jacob Black: What a marshmallow! You should hold out for someone with a stronger stomach. Someone who laughs at the gore that makes weaker men vomit.
Bella Swan: Yeah, I’ll keep my eye open for that.
[Jacob tries to grab hold of Bella’s hand]
Jacob Black: What? I can’t hold your hand?
Bella Swan: No, of course, you can. I just think it means something really different to you.
Bella Swan: Jake, please, don’t do this.
Jacob Black: Why?
Bella Swan: Because you are about to ruin everything. And I need you.
Jacob Black: Well, I’ve got loads of time. I’m not going to give up.
Bella Swan: I don’t want you to. But it’s just because I don’t want you to go anywhere.
[referring to Edward leaving]
Jacob Black: Look, I know what he did to you. But, Bella, I would never, ever do that. I won’t ever hurt you. I promise. I won’t let you down. You can count on me.
