Bella Swan[edit]

  • [Voice-over] I'd never given much thought to how I would die. But dying in the place of someone I love seems like a good way to go.
  • [Voice-over] About three things I was absolutely positive: first, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him – and I didn't know how dominant that part might be – that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
  • Could you act human? I mean, I've got neighbors.
  • [Voice-over] Death is peaceful, easy. Life is harder.
  • [to Edward] What?! Are you... no! No! I don't even know what you're... how?! What?! What are you--?! What are you talking about—you want me to go away?! NO! I can't... I can't-- I can't just leave you! Ah-! Ah-! We can't be apart! You can't leave me.
  • [Voice-over] No one will surrender tonight. But I won't give in. I know what I want.

Edward Cullen[edit]

  • Can't you just thank me and get over it?
  • What if I'm not the hero? What if I'm the bad guy?
  • I feel very protective of you.
  • I don't have the strength to stay away from you anymore.
  • I'm the world's most dangerous predator. Everything about me invites you in. My voice, my face, even my smell. As if I would need any of that. As if you could outrun me! As if you could fight me off. I'm designed to kill.
  • My family... we're different from others of our kind. We only hunt animals. We've learned to control our thirst. But it's you, your scent, it's like a drug to me. You're like my own personal brand of heroin.
  • Just ignore Rosalie. I do.
  • You better hold on tight, spider monkey.
  • Bella, you are my life now.
  • I'll do whatever it takes to make you safe again.
  • I leave you alone for two minutes and the wolves descend.
  • And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.


  • Jessica Stanley: That's Edward Cullen. He's totally gorgeous, obviously. But apparently, nobody here's good enough for him. Like I care.
  • Mike Newton: Arizona! Yo, what's happening? So, you and Cullen, huh? I don't like it. I mean, he just looks at you like you're something to eat.
  • Renée Dwyer: Come on, we gotta talk, boys! Are you being safe?
  • Emmett Cullen: Babe, come on, it's just a game!
  • Mike Newton: How you likin' the rain, girl?
  • Eric Yorkie: Bella, look! It's a worm, it's a worm! [Laughs]
  • Eric Yorkie: Chillax. No feature.
  • Charlie Swan: It sure like hell is not okay.
  • Charlie Swan: You can kiss your license goodbye.
  • Charlie Swan: She always did know how to worry.
  • Charlie Swan: I'm as healthy as a horse.


Charlie Swan: Bella, you remember Billy Black.
Billy Black: Glad you're finally here. Charlie hasn't shut up about it since you told him you were coming.
Charlie Swan: Keep exaggerating, I'll wheel you into the mud.
Billy Black: Right after I ram you in the ankles.

Eric Yorkie: Anything you need, tour guide, lunch date, shoulder to cry on?
Bella Swan:I'm really kind of the suffer-in-silence type.

Jessica Stanley: Dr. Cullen's like this foster dad slash matchmaker.
Angela Weber: Maybe he'll adopt me.

Bella Swan: You – you stopped the van. You pushed it away with your hand.
Edward Cullen: Well, nobody's gonna believe you, so...
Bella Swan: I wasn't gonna tell anybody. I just need to know the truth.
Edward Cullen: Can't you just thank me and get over it?
Bella Swan: Thank you.
Edward Cullen: You're not gonna let this go, are you?
Bella Swan: No.
Edward Cullen: Well, then I hope you enjoy disappointment.

Edward Cullen: What's in Jacksonville?
Bella Swan: How did you know about that?
Edward Cullen: You didn't answer my question.
Bella Swan: Well, you don't answer any of mine, so. I mean, you don't even say "hi" to me.
Edward Cullen: Hi.
Bella Swan: Are you gonna tell me how you stopped the van?
Edward Cullen: Yeah. I had an adrenaline rush. It's very common. You can Google it.
Bella Swan: Floridians. That's what's in Jacksonville. [trips]
Edward Cullen: Could you at least look where you walk? Ah, I'm sorry if I'm being rude to you all the time, I just think it's the best way.

Edward Cullen: Bella, we shouldn't be friends.
Bella Swan: You really should've figured that out a little earlier. I mean, why didn't you just let the van crush me and save yourself all this regret?
Edward Cullen: You think I regret saving you?
Bella Swan: I can see that you do. I just don't know why.
Edward Cullen: You don't know anything.

Bella Swan: You know, your mood swings are kind of giving me whiplash.
Edward Cullen: I only said it'd be better if we weren't friends, not that I didn't want to be.
Bella Swan: What does that mean?
Edward Cullen: It means, if you were smart, you'd stay away from me.
Bella Swan: Okay, well, let's say for argument's sake that I'm not smart. Would you tell me the truth?
Edward Cullen: No, probably not. I'd rather hear your theories.
Bella Swan: I have considered radioactive spiders and kryptonite.
Edward Cullen: That's all superhero stuff, right? What if I'm not the hero? What if I'm the bad guy?
Bella Swan: You're not. I can see what you're trying to put off. But I can see that it's just to keep people away from you, it's a mask.

James: [tormenting Waylon] It's always the same inane questions: "Who are you?"
Victoria: "What do you want?"
James: "Why are you doing this?"
Laurent: James, let's not play with our food.

Edward Cullen: I should go back there and rip those guys' heads off.
Bella Swan: Uh, no, you shouldn't.
Edward Cullen: You don't know the vile, repulsive things they were thinking.
Bella Swan: And you do?
Edward Cullen: It's not hard to guess. Will you talk about something else? Distract me so I won't turn around.
Bella Swan: You should put your seatbelt on.
Edward Cullen: [laughs] Why don't you put your seatbelt on?

Bella Swan: You gotta give me some answers.
Edward Cullen: Yes, no, to get to the other side, 1.77245 …
Bella Swan: I don't want to know what the square root of π is.
Edward Cullen: You knew that?

Bella Swan: You say you heard what they were thinking? So what, you read minds?
Edward Cullen: I can read every mind in this room, apart from yours. [looks at specific people] Money. Sex. Money. Sex. Cat. And then you? Nothing. It's very frustrating.
Bella Swan: Is there something wrong with me?
Edward Cullen: See, I tell you I can read minds, and you think there's something wrong with you.

Edward Cullen: I don't have the strength to stay away from you anymore.
Bella Swan: Then don't.

Bella Swan: You're impossibly fast, and strong. Your skin is pale white and ice cold. Your eyes change color, and sometimes you speak like – like you're from a different time. You never eat or drink anything. You don't go out in the sunlight. How old are you?
Edward Cullen: Seventeen.
Bella Swan: How long have you been seventeen?
Edward Cullen: [pause] A while.
Bella Swan: I know what you are.
Edward Cullen: Say it. Out loud. Say it.
Bella Swan: Vampire.
Edward Cullen: Are you afraid?
Bella Swan: No.
Edward Cullen: Then ask me the most basic question: What do we eat?
Bella Swan: You won't hurt me.

Edward Cullen: I'm the world's most dangerous predator. Everything about me invites you in: my voice, my face, even my smell. As if a need any of that. As if you could outrun me! As if you could fight me off! I'm designed to kill.
Bella Swan: I don't care.
Edward Cullen: I've killed people before.
Bella Swan: It doesn't matter.
Edward Cullen: I wanted to kill you. I've never wanted a human's blood so much in my life.
Bella Swan: I trust you.
Edward Cullen: Don't.
Bella Swan: I'm here. I trust you!

Bella Swan: Why did you hate me so much when we met?
Edward Cullen: I did... Only for making me want you so badly. I still don't know if I can control myself.

Edward Cullen: I can't read your mind. You have to tell me what you're thinking.
Bella Swan: Now I'm afraid.
Edward Cullen: Good.
Bella Swan: I'm not afraid of you, I'm only afraid of losing you. I feel like you're gonna disappear.
Edward Cullen: You don't know how long I've waited for you. And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.
Bella Swan: What a stupid lamb.
Edward Cullen: What a sick, masochistic lion.

Bella Swan: You know, everybody's staring.
Edward Cullen: Not that guy. [points] No, he just looked. I'm breaking all the rules now, anyway, since I'm going to hell.

Edward Cullen: I'm gonna take you to my place tomorrow.
Bella Swan: Wait, like with your family?
Edward Cullen: Yeah.
Bella Swan: What if they don't like me?
Edward Cullen: So you're worried, not because you'll be in a house full of vampires, but because you think they won't approve of you? [laughs]
Bella Swan: I'm glad I amuse you.

Edward Cullen: What did you expect, coffins and dungeons and moats?
Bella Swan: No, not the moats.
Edward Cullen: Not the moats.

Rosalie Hale: Is she even Italian?
Emmett Cullen: Her name is Bella.

Bella Swan: Graduation caps?
Edward Cullen: Yeah, it's a private joke. We matriculate a lot.

Bella Swan: I can't dance.
Edward Cullen: Well, I could always make you.
Bella Swan: I'm not scared of you.
Edward Cullen: Well, you really shouldn't have said that.

Bella Swan: Forks is growing on me.
Renée Dwyer: Could a guy have anything to do with that?
Bella Swan: Well … yeah.
Renée Dwyer: I knew it, tell me everything! What is he, a jock? Indie? I bet he's smart. Is he smart?

Bella Swan: I have a date with Edward Cullen.
Charlie Swan: He's a little old for you, isn't he?
Bella Swan: No, he's a junior, I'm a junior. I thought you liked the Cullens.
Charlie Swan: I thought you didn't like any of the boys in town.
Bella Swan: Edward doesn't live "in town", technically. [pause] He's right outside.
Charlie Swan: He is?
Bella Swan: Yeah, he wanted to meet you. Officially.
Charlie Swan: All right. [snaps shut the gun he is cleaning] Bring him in.
Bella Swan: Hey, could you be nice? He's important.
Charlie Swan: [motions a halo around his head]

Edward Cullen: Bella won't be out too late tonight, she's just gonna play baseball with my family.
Charlie Swan: Baseball?
Edward Cullen: Yes, sir, that's the plan.
Charlie Swan: [laughs] Bella's gonna play baseball. Well, good luck with that.

Victoria: I'm the one with the wicked curve ball.
Jasper Hale: Oh, I think we can handle that.

James: You're alone, 'cause you're faster than the others. But not stronger.
Edward Cullen: I'm strong enough to kill you.

Edward Cullen: I'll take care of her, Chief Swan.
Charlie Swan: Uh-huh, I've heard that before.

Bella Swan: Edward, why did you save me? If you'd just let the venom spread, I could be like you right now.
Edward Cullen: You don't know what you're saying. You don't want this.
Bella Swan: I want you. Always.
Edward Cullen: I'm not gonna end your life for you.
Bella Swan: I'm dying, already. Every second I get closer, older.
Edward Cullen: That's the way it's supposed to be.
Bella Swan: Alice said that she saw me like you. I heard her.
Edward Cullen: Her visions change.
Bella Swan: Yeah, based on what people decide. I've decided.
Edward Cullen: So that's what you dream about, becoming a monster?
Bella Swan: I dream about being with you forever.
Edward Cullen: Forever. And you're ready right now?
Bella Swan: Yes.
Edward Cullen: Is it not enough, just to have a long and happy life with me?
Bella Swan: [pause] Yeah. For now.
