Why, "It Doesn't Matter" matters so much in the novel "Twilight"
Introduction: Edward's face is a calm mask, as Bella explains to him that Jacob has told her that he (Edward) is a vampire. As his hands tighten on the steering wheel, she explains that she had started researching the topic on her computer. Then she informs him of her epiphany. (An epiphany is a sudden intuitive perception of reality) Bella tells him that she quite her researching as to if he was a vampire, or even what vampires were like, because no matter what she discovered: "It didn't matter!"
When Edward learns of Bella's epiphany and comprehends it's implications, he goes ballistic. Through clenched teeth he asks Bella: "It doesn't matter that I am a monster?"
