Top Eclipse Quotes

Last week Hypable featured their top New Moon quotes. This week they are back with top Eclipse quotes. Did you favorites make the list?

5. “I don’t care who’s a werewolf and who’s a vampire. If Angela turns out to be a witch, she can join the party, too.”

This one comes out spontaneously funny from Meyer. It shows that throughout the two years Bella experienced with the supernatural, she got pretty used to it and expects anything to be magical, to pop out of nowhere and declare itself a magical creature


3. “I’m not that girl, Edward. The one who gets married
right out of high school like some small-town hick
who got knocked up by her boyfriend! Do you know
what people would think? Do you realize what
century this is? People don’t just get married at
eighteen! Not smart people, not responsible, mature
people! I wasn’t going to be that girl! That’s not who I
am… .”

This quote became one of my favorites when I first read it. It clearly displays how Bella isn’t just a stupid, short-sighted girl with a crush on her high school hot guy, but a responsible and insightful young woman.

  1. ”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?”

    I really missed that this wasn’t in the movie. That whole scene should have been kept true to the book IMHO.

    • I missed it too! I wish it was more like the book in the movie too. Even Stephenie Meyere hated that scene because Edward would have ripped Jacob’s arm out if he touched him in the book.

      • I’ve always assumed that Summit were afraid of the reaction from certain quarters if they’d stuck more rigidly to the book. I mean, there’s always a lot of noise made about Edward’s possessiveness and his apparent stalker tendancies.

        To have Edward become so quietly intimidating/threatening would really have had critics of the franchise ranting until they were purple.
        I wonder if this is also why Bella was never ‘abducted’ by Alice while Edward went hunting. It’s a shame though, this was all stuff I was hoping to see on screen.

        • Vampire-girl says:

          I agree with that, and Bella is selfless, we know she hates shopping and make-overs but she lets Alice do that as she likes spending time with her and I bet Alice makes it fun as well, seeing as she never had a human friend, its obvious she’s going to be fascinated with Bella, they all would really.
          I think they were worried that people would see Edward spying on her as being creepy, like when she reads her book outside.
          But when you look at it from his view of spending all his time being bored with the humans and not paying an interest. He describes her perfectly when he says something about shooting across his darkness like a meteor. They light each other up

    • Oh, I loved that quote too! This movie was the one that, to me, at least in terms of character portrayal, diverged the most from the book. Of course, that is due to the screenplay…and not to the actors.

  2. Lindsay says:

    “What am I, a Saint Bernard?” – Jacob Black in response to Edward’s suggestion of how he can make himself useful by fetching a space heater while Bella is freezing to death in the tent.

  3. Faye massenroe says:

    The whole wedding proposal
