Alice: “No one dressed by me ever looks like an idiot.” – pg 20
Bella: “Jasper? What do vampires do for bachelor parties? You’re not taking him to a strip club, are you?”
Jasper: “Relax. We Cullens have our own version. Just a few mountain lions, a couple of grizzly bears. Pretty much an ordinary night out.”
Bella: “Thanks, Jasper.”
He winked and dropped from sight. – pg 30
Bella: “Since when is the bride not allowed to see the decorations?”
Alice: “Since she put me in charge.” – pg 41
Alice: “No one will dare to call you plain when I’m through with you.” – pg 42
Renee: “Alice wouldn’t let us do anything else. Every time we tried, she all but ripped our throats out.” – pg 46
Alice: “I’ll tell her where you’re taking her, Edward. So help me, I will.”
Edward: “You’re awfully small to be so hugely irritating.” – pg 71
Alice was a tiny little thing. ‘Bout the size of one of my arms. She looked even smaller now, sort of hunched in on herself. Her small face was pinched.
“Vampires get headaches?”
“Not the normal ones.”
I snorted. Normal vampires.
“So how come you’re never with Bella anymore?” I asked, making the question an accusation. It hadn’t occurred to me before, because my head had been full of other crap, but it was weird that Alice was never around Bella, not since I’d been here. Maybe if Alice were by her side, Rosalie wouldn’t be. “Thought you two were like this.” I twisted two of my fingers together.
“Like I said” —she curled up on the tile a few feet from me, wrapping her skinny arms around her skinny knees—”headache.”
“Bella’s giving you a headache?”
“Yes.” – pg 274
Alice: “You don’t mind if I sit here by you, do you?”
Jacob: “Guess not. Stinks anyway.”
Alice: “Thanks. This is the best thing for it, I guess, since I can’t take aspirin.” – pg 277
Seth: “Alice wants you, too. She says she’s tired of hanging out in the attic like the vampire bat in the belfry.” – pg 290
Alice: “Yes, thanks so much for bringing it up. You would be mortified, too, if you realized that you were handcuffed by your own nature. I see vampires best, because I am one; I see humans okay, because I was one. But I can’t see these odd half-breeds at all because they’re nothing I’ve experienced. Bah!” – pg 382
She’s really going to be fine,” he breathed.
“Of course she is.”
“You weren’t so sanguine two days ago.”
“I couldn’t see right two days ago. But now that she’s free of all the blind spots, it’s a piece of cake.”
“Could you concentrate for me? On the clock —give me an estimate.”
Alice sighed. “So impatient. Fine. Give me a sec —”
“Thank you, Alice.” His voice was brighter.
How long? Couldn’t they at least say it aloud for me? Was that too much to ask? How many more seconds would I burn? Ten thousand? Twenty? Another day —eighty-six thousand, four hundred? More than that?
“She’s going to be dazzling.”
Edward growled quietly. “She always has been.”
Alice snorted. “You know what I mean. Look at her.” – pg 382-383
Alice was peeking around Jasper’s elbow with a huge grin on her face; the light sparkled off her teeth, another eight-color rainbow. – pg 390
Through my sightless human eyes, the scars left from his former life with the newborn armies in the South had been mostly invisible. Only with a bright light to throw their slightly raised shapes into definition could I even make out their existence.
Now that I could see, the scars were Jasper’s most dominant feature. It was hard to take my eyes off his ravaged neck and jaw —hard to believe that even a vampire could have survived so many sets of teeth ripping into his throat.
Instinctively, I tensed to defend myself. Any vampire who saw Jasper would have had the same reaction. The scars were like a lighted billboard. Dangerous, they screamed. How many vampires had tried to kill Jasper? Hundreds? Thousands? The same number that had died in the attempt
Jasper both saw and felt my assessment, my caution, and he smiled wryly. – pg 402
Alice: “Edward gave me grief for not getting you to a mirror before the wedding. I’m not going to be chewed out again.”
Edward: “Chewed out?”
Alice: “Maybe I’m overstating things.” – pg 402-403
Edward: “Jasper wonders how you’re doing it.”
Bella: “Doing it?”
Jasper: “Controlling your emotions. I’ve never seen a newborn do that —stop an emotion in its tracks that way. You were upset, but when you saw our concern, you reined it in, regained power over yourself. I was prepared to help, but you didn’t need it.” – pg 404
“I know —I’ll play you for it,” Alice suggested. “Rock, paper, scissors.”
Jasper chuckled and Edward sighed.
“Why you don’t you just tell me who wins?” Edward said wryly.
Alice beamed. “I do. Excellent.” – pg 472
“We can’t win,” Jasper growled. I could imagine how his face would look, how his body would curve protectively over Alice’s. – pg 549
Bella: “When we were on the plane to Italy, on our way to rescue you… she lied to Jasper so that he wouldn’t come after us. She knew that if he faced the Volturi, he would die. She was willing to die herself rather than put him in danger. Willing for me to die, too. Willing for you to die.” – pg 564
“Why don’t you join us, Alice?” Edward called loudly.
“Alice,” Esme whispered in shock.
Alice, Alice, Alice!
“Alice!” “Alice!” other voices murmured around me.
“Alice,” Aro breathed.
Relief and violent joy surged through me. It took all my will to keep the shield where it was. – pg 732
Bella: Then Alice danced into the clearing from the southwest, and I felt like the bliss of seeing her face again might knock me off my feet. Jasper was only inches behind her, his sharp eyes fierce. – pg 733
Alice: “Just get it off your chest, Bella.”
Bella: “How could you do that to me, Alice?”
Alice: “It was necessary.” – pg 746
Bella: “Sorry! I know it was rough for you, too. It’s just that… well, I missed you like crazy, Alice. Don’t do that to me again.”
Alice: “I missed you, too, Bella. So forgive me, and try to be satisfied with being the superhero of the day.” – pg 747
Bella: “Oh, Jasper?”
Jasper: “Yes, Bella?”
Bella: “I’m curious —why is J. Jenks scared stiff by just the sound of your name?”
Jasper: “It’s just been my experience that some kinds of working relationships are better motivated by fear than by monetary gain.” – pg 749
