Special Sub-Topic: They Said It in "Twilight"
|What answer did Edward NOT give Bella while they were out eating in Port Angeles?|
"Guess". Edward and Bella wound up going out to eat at a restaurant in Port Angeles, where Bella confronted Edward, once again, on how he stopped the van. Her exact words were "You gotta give me some answers", so he did, saying "Yes. No. To get to the other side." He then began reeling off the square root of pi. In other words, he wasn't going to actually answer her questions, because he didn't want to tell her that he was a vampire, which is how he stopped the van.
When asking people "don't you think it is a bit gross for Edward to love Bella like he does, at his age?" most of the responses I got were very disturbing for the particular situation, such as "not at all" and "age doesn't matter" (age doesn't matter? Not even a 100 years difference?). But I finally got my answer, and I quote "If you still looked seventeen - regardless of life experiences - you would still want someone who was your age on the outside. You just wouldn't be attracted to someone who in reality, was 117". That... actually made sense.
|Bella said "Your eyes were black the last time I saw you and now they're like, golden brown..." - What was Edward's excuse?|
The fluorescents. Bella and Edward were leaving biology class when she noticed that his eyes were a different color. His eyes were black when she saw him first, because he was tense (because of being thirsty). But when he was more relaxed, they had returned to his normal golden brown. Bella and Edward both knew that normal people's eyes did not change that drastically, leaving Edward a bit stumped on what to say.
Flourescent lighting was a good excuse, actually. A normal light bulb would shine bright white light, whilst a fluorescent bulb's shine would be more of a yellow (and dimmer) glow. Oftentimes, the colour of something could appear different, because of the lighting.
|Edward said "What a sick, _____ lion" - What word am I leaving out?|
masochistic. During the scene in the woods, when Bella's suspicions of Edward being a vampire were confirmed, Bella called herself "a stupid lamb" for not being afraid of Edward. Edward, in turn, called himself "a sick, masochistic lion", for craving her blood like he did.
|What did Bella say was in Jacksonville?|
Floridians. Bella was walking through the nursery on the school field trip, with Edward at her side. Edward asked her "What is in Jacksonville?" because he knew she was leaving, and wanted to know why. He didn't want her to leave because he was too obsessed with her (a little creepy, don't you think?). Bella didn't want to tell him anything about her if he wouldn't tell her anything about him so she simply answered with "Floridians".
|Edward said "What did you expect? Coffins and dungeons and moats?" - How did Bella respond?|
"No, not the moats.". When visiting the Cullen family for the first time, Bella was a bit surprised to see that Edward's house was not the stereotypical dwelling of a vampire, and voiced this with a "wow". Instead of a dark castle filled with lifeless bodies, trapped in dungeons, the Cullens lived in a very nice house, made mostly of glass. The majority of the Cullen clan proved to be very nice to Bella, with the exception of Rosalie, who wasn't too thrilled to have her family socializing so intimately with a human.
|Edward said "Private joke. We ______ a lot." - What word am I leaving out?|
matriculate. Edward was speaking of the framed graduation caps in the stairwell of his home, arranged in an artlike form. Bella looked at it very curiously, and Edward had to explain that the Cullen family moved around a lot, often graduating from high school several times.
"Matriculate" is a noun for "college student" or a verb for "enrolling in college". In other words, the word was not used properly in the sentence. Excuse me while I propel my cranium into my workspace.
|Emmett said "she thinks we cheat." - Who responded to that and what did they say?|
Esme: "I know you cheat.". Edward went to Bella's house to pick her up for their first "official" date. He also went inside and formally introduced himself to Charlie (all right, I'll admit it - that was very gentlemanly and charming). Bella and Edward then went to go play baseball with the rest of the Cullen family, who all relished the opportunity to play baseball, as they could only play during a thunderstorm, due to all the noise they made when playing baseball.
Esme played catcher while Bella played umpire, since Bella felt like she was too clumsy to play baseball, especially with the vampires. Esme told her to keep a special eye on Emmett, because of cheating.
|"I'm the one with the wicked curve ball." - Who said this?|
Victoria. Lo and behold, just as the baseball game was getting intense, three stray vampires showed up. Nomads, if you will, James, Victoria and Laurent traveled around, eating humans (which could have gotten the Cullen family in a lot of trouble). The three asked if they could join the baseball game, with Victoria mentioning her curve ball. The Cullens agreed that they could join in the game, but then James caught a whiff of Bella, turning the last thirty minutes of the movie into a dangerous version of hide-and-seek.
|Bella said "Everyone's staring" and then Edward said to her "No, not that guy." - What did he say after that?|
"Oh, wait, he just looked.". After Bella and Edward went out for dinner, the entire high school at Forks knew (that's what one would get for living in a small town!). Therefore, all the students were watching as Edward and Bella got out of Edward's car at school the next day. Edward was much more relaxed about the whole situation than Bella was, being used to the stares.
|Bella: "Death is peaceful - ____. Life is harder." - What word am I leaving out?|
Easy. Throughout the movie, Bella spoke on death quite a bit. Things such as "I have never given much though to how I would die. But dying in the place of someone I love sounds like a good way to go". Bella gave us the "death is peaceful - easy. Living is harder" line after she got mauled by James and ended up in the hospital. The line was given as a monologue, a voice-over.
