The Twilight Saga

I’ll let you pay me back, if that makes you happy. If you want, I can charge you interest.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.22

There’s no hurry. I won’t let anyone hurt you. You can take all the time you need.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.25

Monsters are not a joke, Bella.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.25

You know it’s out of the question for you to be around a werewolf unprotected, Bella. And it would break the treaty if any of us cross over onto their land. Do you want us to start a war?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.28

If we could bottle your luck, we’d have a weapon of mass destruction on our hands.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.31

I’ll never forgive myself for leaving you. Not if I live a hundred thousand years.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.33

If I’d never left, you wouldn’t feel the need to go risk your life to comfort a dog.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.33

I don’t know how to phrase this properly. It’s going to sound cruel, I suppose. But I’ve come too close to losing you in the past. I know what it feels like to think I have. I am not going to tolerate anything dangerous.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.33

Please make a conscious effort to keep yourself safe. I’ll do everything I can, but I would appreciate a little help.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.33

Do you really have any idea how important you are to me? Any concept at all of how much I love you?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 1, p.34

You aren’t the only one who’s been trapped in this house, you know.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 2, p.49

The outside world holds no interest for me without you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 2, p.49

In that instant when they shift from one form to the other, they don’t really even exist. The future can’t hold them…
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 2, p.63

Shut your window if you want me to stay away tonight. I’ll understand.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 2, p.64

Your mother has a very interesting mind. Almost childlike, but very insightful. She sees things differently than other people.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 3, p.66

If I asked you to do something, would you trust me?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 3, p.75

It’s nothing, Bella. Jacob just has a good memory, that’s all.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 3, p.82

I wasn’t about to send you off alone. With your luck, not even the black box would survive.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 3, p.88

I’d wait till we were close enough to the ground, get a good grip on you, kick out the wall, and jump. Then I’d run you back to the scene of the accident, and we’d stumble around like the two luckiest survivors in history.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 3, p.88

I’ll be back so soon you won’t have time to miss me. Look after my heart — I’ve left it with you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 4, p.95

Do you have any idea how close I came to crossing the line today? To breaking the treaty and coming after you? Do you know what that would have meant?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 6, p.141

You aren’t exactly the best judge of what is or isn’t dangerous.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 6, p.141

Well… don’t be offended, but you smell like a dog.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 6, p.144

I was all braced for the wrath that was going to put grizzlies to shame, and this is what I get? I should infuriate you more often.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 8, p.186

I go a little berserk when I try to leave you. I don’t think I’ll go so far again. It’s not worth it.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 8, p.189

Must I always be the responsible one?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 8, p.192

I prefer brunettes.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 8, p.194

You’re quite adorable when you’re jealous. It’s surprisingly enjoyable.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 8, p.194

You are the only one who has ever touched my heart. It will always be yours.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 8, p.195

Holding grudges is not one of your many talents.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 9, p.209

Are you trying to distract me? It’s working.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.224

It gets easier. After a few decades, everyone you know is dead. Problem solved.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.226

Jasper is sort of an expert on young vampires.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.230

Do you ever think that your life might be easier if you weren’t in love with me?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.230

I was rather under the impression that you’d promised to ask my permission to go to some kind of werewolf soirée tonight.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.230

I do have a bit more insight into his probable answer than most people would, it’s true.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.231

There are things between my hands right now that I can’t live without. You could take care of them.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.234

You look… sexy.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 10, p.235

Besides… the more time I spend with you, the more human emotions seem comprehensible to me. I’m discovering that I can sympathize with Heathcliff in ways I didn’t think possible before.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 11, p.265

How can someone so tiny by so annoying?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.268

Would you please tell me what you are thinking? Before I go mad?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.270

Not one of us had a choice. You’ve seen what it’s done… to Rosalie especially. We’ve all struggled, trying to reconcile ourselves with something we had no control over. I won’t let it be that way for you. You will have a choice.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.271

You aren’t going through with this because a sword is hanging over your head. We will take care of the problems, and I will take care of you. When we’re through it, and there is nothing forcing your hand, then you can decide to join me, if you still want to. But not because you’re afraid. You won’t be forced into this.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.271

It’s the thought that counts. I ought to know.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.272

If I answer your question, will you then explain your question?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.273

If there were any way for me to become human for you — no matter what the price was, I would pay it.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.273

And the sound of your heart. It’s the most significant sound in my world.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.274

You’ll always be my Bella, you’ll just be a little more durable.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.274

If I had found you, there isn’t a doubt in my mind how I would have proceeded. I was that boy, who would have — as soon as I discovered that you were what I was looking for — gotten down on one knee and endeavored to secure your hand. I would have wanted you for eternity, even when the word didn’t have quite the same connotations.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 12, p.277

Jasper shows up, covered in battle scars, towing this little freak who greets them all by name, knows everything about them, and wants to know which room she can move into.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 13, p.302

Does it occur to anyone else that the only possible threat in the area that would call for the creation of an army is… us?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 13, p.303

Damn it. Damn Laurent to the deepest pit of hell where he belongs.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 13, p.307

I know you think that I have some kind of perfect, unyielding self-control, but that’s not actually the case.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 14, p.315

Human blood makes us the strongest, though only fractionally. Jasper’s been thinking about cheating — adverse as he is to the idea, he’s nothing if not practical — but he won’t suggest it. He knows what Carlisle will say.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 14, p.317

We aren’t going to change who we are.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 14, p.317

Do me a favor and challenge him to an arm-wrestling match. It would be a good experience for him.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 14, p.317

It’s not easy to ignore someone when he’s shouting.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 14, p.319

I’m not going to kill you now, because it would upset Bella.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 15, p.340

But if you ever bring her back damaged again — and I don’t care whose fault it is; I don’t care if she merely trips, or if a meteor falls out of the sky and hits her in the head — if you return her to me in less than the perfect condition that I left her in, you will be running with three legs. Do you understand that, mongrel?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 15, p.340

I’ll be fighting for her, too. You should know that. I’m not taking anything for granted, and I’ll be fighting twice as hard as you will.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 15, p.341

She is mine. I didn’t say I would fight fair.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 15, p.341

Everyone will come. They’re all dying to see the inside of the reclusive Cullens’ mystery house.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 17, p.367

You’re very perceptive today. It’s impressive.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 18, p.389

Prepare yourselves — they’ve been holding out on us.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 18, p.391

To think it’s come to this, though! Trusting werewolves!
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 18, p.409

The way you regard me is ludicrous.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.413

Jacob is second in command. Did he never tell you that? His orders have to be followed, too.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.415

I got a fascinating look into the pack’s mind last night. It was better than a soap opera. I had no idea how complex the dynamic is with such a large pack. The pull of the individual against the plural psyche… Absolutely fascinating.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.416

The imprinting compulsion is one of the strangest things I’ve ever witnessed in my life, and I’ve seen some strange things.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.418

The pack mind is mesmerizing. All thinking together and then separately at the same time. There’s so much to read!
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.419

Never be afraid to tell me how you feel, Bella. If this is what you need… You are my first priority.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.422

You gave me two alternatives that you could live with, and I chose the one that I could live with. That’s how compromise is supposed to work.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.422

I’m the only one who has permission to hold you hostage, remember?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.427

It was mind-boggling, but, somehow, he still seemed unsure of his hold on me.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.427

He trusts us not to try to kill him. That’s about it, though.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.428

He thinks my translations leave something to be desired. What he actually thought was, ‘That’s really stupid. What is there to be worried about?’ I edited, because I thought it was rude.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 19, p.430

For this one night, could we try to forget everything besides just you and me? It seems like I can never get enough time like that. I need to be with you. Just you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.435

But I thought it was a good representation. It’s hard and cold. And it throws rainbows in the sunlight.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.439

My heart is just as silent. And it, too, is yours.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.439

Listen to your heart fly. It’s fluttering like a hummingbird’s wings. Are you all right?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.440

I’ve already made the largest concession by far and away — I’ve agreed to take your life away against my better judgment. And that ought to entitle me to a few compromises on your part.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.440

I didn’t realize there was anything else you wanted besides being transformed into a monster yourself. I’m extremely curious.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.441

Tell me what you want, and you can have it.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.442

I feel like there’s a line behind me, jockeying for position, waiting for me to make a big enough mistake. . . . You’re too desirable for your own good.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.445

Do you have any idea how painful it is, trying to refuse you when you plead with me this way?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.448

Bella. Would you please stop trying to take your clothes off?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.450

Do you get the feeling that everything is backward? Traditionally, shouldn’t you be arguing my side, and I yours?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.451

You know that I’ve stolen, I’ve lied, I’ve coveted… my virtue is all I have left.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.454

Yes, but you’re such a bad liar that it doesn’t really count. Nobody believes you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.454

I had no right to want you — but I reached out and took you anyway. And now look what’s become of you! Trying to seduce a vampire.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.454

There is only one thing I want to speed up, and the rest can wait forever… but for that, it’s true, your impatient human hormones are my most powerful ally at this point.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.455

We’ll go to Vegas — you can wear old jeans and we’ll go to the chapel with the drive-through window. I just want it to be official — that you belong to me and no one else.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.456

You are the most dangerous creature I’ve ever met.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.457

I supposed it’s a little outdated. Old-fashioned, just like me.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.458

Isabella Swan? I promise to love you forever — every single day of forever. Will you marry me?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 20, p.460

You’re about to make my life harder than it needs to be, Alice.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 21, p.464

I’ve got a first aid kit. I had a feeling I might need it.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 21, p.470

I lived through an entire twenty-four hours thinking that you were dead, Bella. That changed the way I look at a lot of things.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 21, p.471

I don’t see you making yourself useful. Why don’t you go fetch a space heater or something?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.489

You don’t have the faintest idea how much I wish I could do what you’re doing for her, mongrel.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.492

Do you think you could attempt to control your thoughts?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.494

You have no idea how loud your little fantasies are. It’s like you’re shouting them at me.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.495

My mind doesn’t work quite the same as yours. I can think of many more things at one time. Of course, that means that I’m always able to think of you, always able to wonder if that’s where her mind is, when she’s quiet and thoughtful.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.496

She worries that you’re unhappy. Not that you don’t know that. Not that you don’t use that.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.496

Odd as this might sound, I suppose I’m glad you’re here, Jacob.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.497

It’s an uncomfortable truce, isn’t it?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.497

After I’d accepted that she was more or less safe with you — as safe as Bella ever is — it seemed best to stop driving her to extremes.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.498

She reminded me of what it did to her when I left — what it still does to her when I leave. She feels horrible about bringing that up, but she’s right. I’ll never be able to make up for that, but I’ll never stop trying anyway.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.499

You think of me as a… living stone — hard and cold. That’s true. We are set the way we are, and it is very rare for us to experience a real change. When that happens, as when Bella entered my life, it is a permanent change. There’s no going back…
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.500

As long as she wants me, I’m here.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.502

You see, Jacob, you might leave her someday. Like Sam and Emily, you wouldn’t have a choice. I would always be waiting in the wings, hoping for that to happen.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.502

You know, Jacob, if it weren’t for the fact that we’re natural enemies and that you’re also trying to steal away the reason for my existence, I might actually like you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.503

I can only hear if you think of it.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.503

Would you like me to help you sleep, Jacob?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.504

Don’t tempt me too far, wolf. My patience isn’t that perfect.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 22, p.504

But, if I had been able to take your place last night, it would not have made the top ten of the best nights of my life. Dream about that.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.509

All of my best nights have happened since I met you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.511

Near the end, though, you started mumbling some nonsense about ‘Jacob, my Jacob.’ Your Jacob enjoyed that quite a lot.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.512

You love me more than I deserve.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.513

A hundred years from now, when you’ve gained enough perspective to really appreciate the answer, I will explain it to you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.513

Truce over.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.514

I never promised to fight fair. And he deserves to know.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.514

I won’t go far, but I won’t listen, either. I know you don’t want an audience, no matter which way you decide to go.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 23, p.521

And I thought I fought dirty. He makes me look like the patron saint of ethics. I’m not mad at you, love. Jacob’s more cunning than I gave him credit for. I do wish you hadn’t asked him, though.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.532

It’s just that he would have kissed you anyway — even if you hadn’t fallen for it — and now I don’t have an excuse to break his face. I would have really enjoyed that, too.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.532

Bella, did you really believe he was that noble? That he would go out in a flame of glory just to clear the way for me?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.532

You’re such a bad liar, you’ll believe anyone who has the least bit of skill.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.533

But you are human, Bella. And, as much as I might wish otherwise, so is he… There are holes in your life that I can’t fill. I understand that.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.533

When I left you, Bella, I left you bleeding. Jacob was the one to stitch you back up again. That was bound to leave its mark — on both of you. I’m not sure those kinds of stitches dissolve on their own. I can’t blame either of you for something I made necessary. I may gain forgiveness, but that doesn’t let me escape the consequences.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.534

I can be noble, Bella. I’m not going to make you choose between us. Just be happy, and you can have whatever part of me you want, or none at all, if that’s better. Don’t let any debt you feel you owe me influence your decision.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.534

We will try, Bella. I’ll make good on my promise. But I’d much rather it wasn’t in reaction to Jacob Black.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.536

We’ve got skill, training, and surprise on our side. It will be over very soon. If I didn’t truly believe that, I would be down there now — and you’d be here, chained to a tree or something along those lines.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 24, p.537

Bella, can you drop the rock, please? Carefully. Don’t hurt yourself.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.556

You don’t have to be afraid, Bella. You’re safe. I won’t hurt you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.556

It’s going to be all right, Bella. I know you’re frightened now, but it’s over. No one is going to hurt you. I won’t touch you. I won’t hurt you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.557

Are you… Aren’t you afraid of me?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.557

I didn’t want you to see that. See me like that. I know I must have terrified you.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.558

I just beheaded and dismembered a sentient creature not twenty yards from you. That doesn’t bother you?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.558

You know that you nearly gave me a heart attack? Not the easiest thing to do, that.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.559

The Volturi do not honor truces with werewolves.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 25, p.564

If it hurts you so much, how can it possibly be the right thing for you?
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 27, p.610

Bella, I see what you’re doing. You’re trying to make everyone else happy. And I don’t care about anyone else’s feelings. I only need you to be happy. Don’t worry about breaking the news to Alice. I’ll take care of it. I promise she won’t make you feel guilty.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 27, p.617

We’re doing this your way. Because my way doesn’t work. I call you stubborn, but look at what I’ve done. I’ve clung with such idiotic obstinacy to my idea of what’s best for you, though it’s only hurt you. Hurt you so deeply, time and time again. I don’t trust myself anymore. You can have happiness your way. My way is always wrong.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 27, p.617

You don’t fight fair.
Edward Cullen, Eclipse, Chapter 27, p.620
