BELLA
I'd never given much thought to how I would die.
Surely, it was a goody way to die — in place of someone else — someone I loved.
moviequote

BELLA
In the Olympic Peninsula of northwest Washington State,
a small town named Forks exists under a near-constant cover of clouds.

BELLA
One of the best things about Charlie is he doesn't hover.

BELLA
Who are they?

ANGELA
They all live together with Dr. Cullen and his wife.

JESSICA
They're all together, though — and they live together.
They just moved down 2 years ago from somewhere in Alaska.

JESSICA
That's Edward. He's gorgeous, of course, but don't waste your time. He doesn't date.

MIKE
Aren't you Isabella Swan?

Bella.

CHARLIE
How was school? You meet anybody?

BELLA
Yeah. A couple people. Do you know the Cullen family?

EDWARD
Hello. My name is Edward Cullen.
I didn't have a chance to introduce myself last week. You must be Bella Swan.

EDWARD
Ladies first, partner?

BELLA
Prophase.

EDWARD
Do you mind if I look?

EDWARD
Prophase.

EDWARD
Anaphase.

BELLA
May I?

BELLA
Interphase.

BELLA
Did you get contacts?

EDWARD
No.

BELLA
It's…complicated.

EDWARD
I think I can keep up.

BELLA
My mother got remarried.

EDWARD
And you don't like him?

BELLA
No, Phil is fine. Too young, maybe, but nice enough.

EDWARD
Why didn't you stay with them?

BELLA
Phil travels a lot. He plays ball for a living.
He doesn't play well. Strictly minor league. He moves around a lot.

EDWARD
And your mother sent you here so that she could travel with him?

BELLA
No, she did not send me here. I sent myself. She stayed with me at first, but she missed him.
It made her unhappy… so I decided it was time to spend some quality time with Charlie.

EDWARD
But now you're unhappy

EDWARD
On the contrary, I find you very difficult to read.

BELLA
How did you get over here so fast?

EDWARD
I was standing right next to you, Bella.

BELLA
You were by your car.

EDWARD
No, I wasn't.

BELLA
I saw you.

TYLER
Bella, I'm so sorry!

CARLISLE
It sounds like you were extremely lucky.

BELLA
Can I talk to you for a minute?

EDWARD
Bella, you hit your head. You don't know what you're talking about.

BELLA
I want to know the truth.

EDWARD
Nobody will believe that, you know.

BELLA
I'm not going to tell anybody.

EDWARD
Can't you just thank me and get over it?

BELLA
Thank you.

EDWARD
You're not going to let it go, are you.

BELLA
No.

EDWARD
In that case...I hope you enjoy disappointment.

BELLA
That was the first night I dreamt of Edward Cullen.

BELLA
I'm going to Seattle that Saturday.

MIKE
Can't you go some other weekend?

BELLA
Sorry, no.

moviequote

EDWARD
I'm being very rude, I know. But it's better this way, really. It's better if we're not friends.

BELLA
It's too bad you didn't figure that out earlier. You could've saved yourself all this regret.

EDWARD
You think I regret saving your life?

BELLA
I know you do.

EDWARD
You don't know anything.

moviequote

EDWARD
I said it would be better if we weren't friends — not that I didn't want to be.
moviequote

EDWARD
I decided as long as I was going to hell, I might as well do it thoroughly.
moviequote

EDWARD
If you're smart, you'll avoid me.

EDWARD
What are your theories?

EDWARD
What if I'm not a superhero? What if I'm the bad guy?

SAM
The Cullens don't come here.

JAKE
The Cullens are not supposed to come onto the reservation.

BELLA
Why not?

JAKE
I'm not supposed to say anything about that.

BELLA
Oh, I won't tell anyone. I'm just curious.

JAKE
Do you like scary stories?

BELLA
I love them...

JAKE
Do you know any of our old stories, about where we came from? The Quileutes, I mean?

BELLA
Not really.

JAKE
Legend claims that we descended from wolves. Then there are the stories about the cold ones.
My own great-grandfather (chief Ephraim) knew some of them.
He was the one who made the treaty that kept them off our land. He was a tribal elder, like my father.
The cold ones are the natural enemies of the wolves that turn into men (shapeshifters).
But this pack was different. They didn't hunt the way others of their kind did.
They claimed that they didn't hunt humans. They supposedly were somehow able to prey on animals instead.

BELLA
So how does it fit in with the Cullens? Are they like the cold ones your great-grandfather met?

JAKE
. No...They're the same ones.

EDWARD
Get in.

EDWARD
Put on your seat belt.

EDWARD
Distract me, please. Just prattle about something unimportant until I calm down.

EDWARD
I think you should eat something. Do you mind if I drive Bella home tonight?

JESSICA
Uh — no problem...I guess.

ANGELA
See you tomorrow, Bella — Edward.

WAITRESS AMBER
Isn't there anything I can get you?

EDWARD
No, thank you.

WAITRESS AMBER
Let me know if you change your mind.

BELLA
Did you ever think that maybe my number was up
the first time with the van, and that you've been interfering with fate?

EDWARD
Your number was up the first time I met you.

EDWARD
I heard what they were thinking.

BELLA
How does it work — the mind-reading thing? Can you read anybody's mind, anywhere?
How do you do it? Can the rest of your family —

EDWARD
No, it's just me. And I can't hear anyone, anywhere. I have to be fairly close.
The more familiar someone's…voice is, the farther away I can hear them.

BELLA
It doesn't matter to me what you are.

BELLA
How old are you?

EDWARD
17.

BELLA
And how long have you been 17?

EDWARD
...A while.

EDWARD
I don't want to be a monster. I'd compare it to living on tofu. We call ourselves vegetarians.
It doesn't completely satiate the thirst, but it keens us strong enough to resist — most of the time.

EDWARD
Don't go into the woods alone. I'm not always the most dangerous thing out there.

moviequote

BELLA
About three things I was absolutely positive.
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was part of him — and I didn't know how potent that part might be — that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally, and irrevocably in love with him.

EDWARD
Hadn't you noticed? I'm breaking all the rules now.

MIKE
You and Cullen, huh? I don't like it. He looks at you like you're something to eat.
moviequote

BELLA
What is it?

EDWARD
Another complication.

BILLY
And, of course, Jacob was anxious to see Bella again.

CHARLIE
I know I leave you here alone too much.

BELLA
I've never minded being alone. I'm too much like you.

moviequote

EDWARD
You see, it's dangerous for more than just me if,
after spending so much time with you so publicly...if this ends...badly.

EDWARD
Tell me what you're thinking.

EDWARD
I'm the world's best predator, aren't I?
Everything about me invites you in
— my voice, my face, even my smell. As if I need any of that!
As if you could outrun me.
As if you could fight me off.

EDWARD
You are exactly my brand of heroin.

EDWARD
Bella, I couldn't live with myself if I ever hurt you. You don't know how it's tortured me.

BELLA
I would rather die than stay away from you.

EDWARD
And so the lion fell in love with the lamb…

BELLA
What a stupid lamb.

EDWARD
What a sick, masochistic lion.

EDWARD
Be very still...

EDWARD
Come on, little coward.

EDWARD
There was something I wanted to try.

EDWARD
I'm stronger than I thought.

BELLA
I wish I could say the same. I'm sorry.

EDWARD
I was born in Chicago in 1901.
Carlisle found me in a hospital in the summer of 1918.
I was 17, and dying of the Spanish influenza.

EDWARD
It was difficult. Not many of us have the restraint necessary to accomplish it.

BELLA
So you must be dying, then, to become...

EDWARD
No, that's just Carlisle. He would never do that to someone who had another choice.
The younger we pretend to be, the longer we can stay in any given place.

EDWARD
She sees things. Things that might happen; things that are coming.
But, it's very subjective. The future isn't set in stone. Things change.

EDWARD
We run across the others now and then.

CHARLIE
None of the boys in town your type, eh?

You are my life now.

EDWARD
You're worried, not because you're headed to meet a houseful of vampires,
but because you think those vampires won't approve of you?

ALICE
Hi, Bella! You do smell nice.

EDWARD
Not what you expected, is it? No coffins, no piled skulls in the corners.

BELLA
It's so light...so open.

EDWARD
It's the one place we never have to hide.

BELLA
I don't find you scary at all.

EDWARD
You really shouldn't have said that.

EDWARD
You'll see why.

BELLA
Vampires like baseball?

EDWARD
It's the American pastime.

Harry Clearwater's homeade fish fry. Charlie's favorite.

BELLA
I sort of have a date with Edward Cullen tonight. I thought you liked the Cullens.

CHARLIE
He's too old for you.

BELLA
We're both juniors.

CHARLIE
You said last night that you weren't interested in any of the boys in town.

BELLA
Well, Edward doesn't live in town, Dad.

EDWARD
Yes, sir. That's the plan.

EDWARD
She'll be safe with me. I promise, sir.

ALICE
It's time.

EDWARD
Take your hair down. Stay very still, keep quiet, and don't move from my side, please.

ALICE
That won't help. I could smell her across the field.

EDWARD
I'm sorry, Bella. It was stupid/irresponsible, to expose you like this. I'm so sorry.

LAURENT
I'm Laurent. These are Victoria and James.

CARLISLE
I'm Carlisle. This is my family.

LAURENT
Do you have room for a few more players?

CARLISLE
We keep a permanent residence nearby.

CARLISLE
She's with us.

LAURENT
You brought a snack?

moviequote

BELLA
You have to take me home!

EDWARD
He's a tracker! Listen to me. I saw his mind. Tracking is his passion.
His obsession — and he wants her — her, specifically.
He begins the hunt tonight. Once he commits to a hunt, he's unshakable.
We'd have to kill him.

moviequote

CHARLIE
Bella, are you ok? What's going on? Did he hurt you?

BELLA
No.

CHARLIE
Did he break up with you?

BELLA
No. I broke up with him.

EDWARD
I'll be in the truck. Go.

CHARLIE
What happened? I thought you liked him.

BELLA
I do like him. That's the problem. I can't do this anymore!
I don't want to end up trapped in this stupid, boring town like Mom!
I'm not going to make the same dumb mistake she did. I hate it.
I can't stay here another minute!

moviequote

EDWARD
It's Emmett!

BELLA
That was the same thing my mom said when she left him.

EDWARD
Don't worry. He'll forgive you.

EDWARD
It's his favorite game, and we've just made it his most exciting game ever.

EDWARD
Tear him to shreds and then burn the pieces.

LAURENT
You can't bring him down. I've never seen anything like him in my 300 years.
He's absolutely lethal. That's why I joined his coven.
Don't underestimate James. He's got a brilliant mind and unparalleled senses.

ROSE
Why should I? What is she to me?
Except a menace; a danger you've chosen to inflict on all of us.

moviequote

ALICE
We're also like sharks in a way.
Once we taste the blood, or even smell it for that matter,
it becomes very hard to keep from feeding. Sometimes impossible.
So you see, to actually bite someone, to taste the blood, it would begin the frenzy.
It's difficult on both sides — the blood-lust on the one hand, the awful pain on the other.

ALICE
I see a room. It's long, and there are mirrors everywhere.
The floor is wooden. He's in the room, and he's waiting.
He's watching TV — no. He's running a VCR in the dark in another place.

BELLA
It looks like a place I used to go for dance lessons.

RENEE
Bella?! Bella?!

BELLA
Calm down, Mom. Everything is fine, ok? Just give me a minute and I'll explain everything.

JAMES
I'm going to need you to get away from your friends. Do you think you can do that?

JAMES
That's a very nice effect. I thought this room would be visually dramatic for my little film.
That's why I picked this place to meet you. It's perfect, isn't it?

JAMES
Wouldn't you rather have Edward try to find me?

BELLA
No, Edward, don't!

BELLA
My hand is burning!

CARLISLE
[to Edward] See if you can suck the venom back out.

EDWARD
I came to Phoenix to talk some sense into you, to convince you to come back to Forks.
You agreed to see me, and you drove out to the hotel where I was staying with Carlisle and Alice
— of course I was here with parental supervision, but you tripped on the stairs on the way to my room.

RENEE
[about Edward] He never leaves.

RENEE
You'll like Jacksonville so much. It's always sunny.
We found the cutest house, and you'll have your own bathroom —

BELLA
— Mom, I want to live in Forks.

EDWARD
I'm the reason that you're here.

BELLA
The reason I'm here — alive.

EDWARD
The very worst was feeling — knowing that I couldn't stop.

BELLA
Why didn't you just let the venom spread? By now, I would be just like you.

EDWARD
You don't know what you're asking.

BELLA
I have my own life to live.

EDWARD
Exactly — and I won't end it for you.

BELLA
I'm going to die sometime. Every minute of the day — I get closer — and I'm going to get old.

EDWARD
That's how it's supposed to happen.

BELLA
Alice already saw it, didn't she? She knows I'm going to be like you...someday.

BELLA
So, how did you end up here tonight?

JAKE
Can you believe my dad paid me twenty bucks to come to your prom?

BELLA
Yes, I can. Well, I hope you're enjoying yourself, at least. Seen anything you like?

JAKE
Yeah. But she's taken.

JACOB Don't get mad, ok? He wants you to break up with your boyfriend.

JACOB 'We'll be watching'.

BELLA
Tell him I said thanks.

EDWARD
That's alright, Jacob. I'll take it from here.

JACOB I guess I'll see you around, Bella.

EDWARD
You're ready now, then? Right now?

BELLA
Yes.

EDWARD
Is that what you dream about? Being a monster?

BELLA
I dream about being with you forever.

EDWARD
Bella, I will stay with you. Isn't that enough?

BELLA
Enough for now.
