Lines in blue were not included in the theatrical version.



RILEY
Who's there?
Who's there?!
Help!
What do you want?!



BELLA
Some say the world will end in fire; some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire.
but, if I had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction, ice is also great and would suffice.
You know...I've got an English final. I gotta focus.

EDWARD
Marry me.

BELLA
No.

EDWARD
Marry me.

BELLA
Change me.

EDWARD
O.k, I will if you marry me.
It's called a compromise.

BELLA
Let's just call it coercion. It's not fair. Marriage is just...a piece of paper.

EDWARD
Where I'm from, it's the way one says, "I love you."

BELLA
Well, where I come from, at my age, it's the way one says..."I just got knocked up."

EDWARD
So...you're worried about what people will think?

BELLA
You know...2 out of 3 marriages end in divorce.

EDWARD
Well, I think you'll find the [vampire / human divorce] rate is a little lower, so marry me.

BELLA
I can't. I have to be back at 4:00.




CHARLIE
4 o'clock on the dot. That kid trying to brown-nose me now or something?

BELLA
He has a name. Now he's too punctual for you?

CHARLIE
O.k. You understand why you're being punished, right?

BELLA
I know -- I put you through hell.

CHARLIE
Yes, you did. but, I have other reasons for grounding you.
Like...I just want you to get some separation from him.

BELLA
Dad, there's nothing you can say. Edward is in my life.

CHARLIE
Yeah, I'm gathering that.
So, all right, how about this? I'll make you a deal:
You're not grounded anymore if you use your new-found freedom to see some of your other friends, too, like...like Jacob.
He's going through a really tough time right now. His dad's really worried about him. I remember when that was you. When you needed a friend, Jake was there.




JACOB
(Voicemail)
Hey, it's Jake. Leave a message.

BELLA
Jacob hadn't talked to me in weeks. I wanted to fix it. He just...he wouldn't give me the chance.




BELLA
You scared me.

EDWARD
You're going down to the reservation?

BELLA
How did you...
Alice.
Hey, did you do this to my truck?

EDWARD
Bella, you have to understand: Your safety is everything to me.

BELLA
Jacob's not gonna hurt me.

EDWARD
Not intentionally, but, the wolves have no control--

BELLA
-- Edward, I have until graduation to see him...and then I'll be one of you, and he'll hate me forever.

EDWARD
Well, I'm sorry.
I want you to be happy. I'll understand if you're too angry for me to come to your room tonight. Just keep the window closed.




JESSICA
No way.

MIKE
Then throw it away.

JESSICA
Stop!

MIKE
Good.

MIKE & ERIC
Hey!

MIKE
Just in time. All right, check it out.

ERIC
All right--let's see what we got.

MIKE
"My fellow students,"

ERIC
Ooh!

MIKE
Right?!

JESSICA
...Wow.

ERIC
Good.

MIKE
Right?!

JESSICA
Cute.

MIKE
"We are the future. Anything is possible...if you just believe."

ANGELA
Nice.

MIKE
Voila?!

ERIC
Perfect.

MIKE
And you got yourself a speech.

JESSICA
No--this'll be my speech when I want everyone to throw diplomas at my head--so, thank you.

MIKE
You gotta embrace the clichés, Jess.

ERIC
They are the bread and butter of all valedictorians.

ANGELA
And that is why you are not valedictorian.

BELLA
Jess doesn't need clichés. The speech is gonna be epic.

JESSICA
"Epic"? It'll change lives.

ALICE
I've decided to throw a party.

JASPER
After all, how many times are we gonna graduate high school?

ANGELA
A party--at your place?

JESSICA
...I've never seen your house.

ERIC
No one's ever seen their house.

EDWARD
Another party, Alice?

ALICE
It'll be fun!

BELLA
Yeah...that's what you said last time.
Hey, Angela--

ANGELA
Yeah?

BELLA
Do you need some help with those?

JESSICA
They'll be sending money 'cause it's the polite thing to do, and then you'll be raking it in.

MIKE
Wait a minute--people give you money?




BELLA
I know you know what she saw. Tell me.

EDWARD
It was nothing.

BELLA
You looked...worried.

EDWARD
Just that everyone noticed how strange Alice is.

BELLA
I think that ship sailed long ago.
I wonder what's wrong.

EDWARD
Their son went missing in Seattle over a year ago. Charlie's doing what he can, but,...

BELLA
You know something about this?

EDWARD
We've been tracking the situation in Seattle for a while--unexplained disappearances...killings.
If the situation gets any more conspicuous, the Volturi will step in.

BELLA
If they go to Seattle, they could come here. They could see I'm still human.

EDWARD
It won't get that far--but, we'll go to Seattle if we have to.

CHARLIE
I'll fax these down first thing.

MR. BIERS
Thank you.

BELLA
Hey.

CHARLIE
Hey.

BELLA
You ready for dinner?

CHARLIE
Yeah. It is still just you and I, right?

EDWARD
No, I'm just dropping her off. See you later.

BELLA
Bye.

EDWARD
Oh, uh, Bella? My parents wanted to remind you about the airline ticket you got for your birthday.

CHARLIE
What airline ticket?

BELLA
A round trip ticket to see Mom in Florida.

CHARLIE
That was generous.

EDWARD
It expires soon, so you might want to use it this weekend.

BELLA
Well, I can't just drop everything and go.

EDWARD
It might be your last chance to see her before you "graduate".

CHARLIE
Might not be a bad idea. Get out of town for a couple days--get some distance.

BELLA
Yeah, I wouldn't mind seeing Mom...as long as you use the companion ticket.

CHARLIE
Wait...there's two tickets?! Super. That makes me really happy.

BELLA
I did want to see my mom. I wanted to know that her life was full and satisfying.




RENEE
Aren't you gonna miss this? Can't you just feel the vitamin D soaking up in your pores?

BELLA
Yeah, I am gonna miss this.

RENEE
You know, colleges in Florida are a lot sunnier. I'm just saying: if you go to the University of Alaska, I'm never gonna see you.

BELLA
They have a really great science program.

RENEE
You mean Edward program.
The way he watches you...it's like he's willing to leap in front of you and take a bullet or something.

BELLA
Is that a bad thing?

RENEE
It's an intense thing. You're different with him. He moves, you move...like magnets.

BELLA
I don't know, we're just--

RENEE
--In love. I get it.
I just want to make sure you're making the right choices for you, you know? 'Cause you're the one that's gonna have to live with them.
All right, enough with the heavy.

BELLA
Mom...

RENEE
Con/graduation!

BELLA
I didn't want you to spend any of your money.

RENEE
I didn't. Come on.

BELLA
Are these all our old trip T-shirts?

RENEE
Mmm hmm!

BELLA
Get out!

RENEE
I saved them all. I thought they'd make a good quilt to keep you warm up in Alaska. Remember this one? Ensenada?

BELLA
The Snake Pit!

RENEE
Yep! But, this one is my favorite. Here. The three-headed lobster from Maine.

BELLA
This is amazing.

RENEE
Honey, I'm glad you like it.
I just figured, you know, when you get older, have kids, we can add to it. Maybe go visit the world's largest ketchup bottle or something.

BELLA
Thanks.

RENEE
--Oh! I'm glad you like it. Just thought you should have a little piece of me up there in Alaska.

BELLA
Mom?...

RENEE
Yeah?

BELLA
I miss you.

RENEE
Honey, I miss you, too.




CARLISLE
Are you sure this is where you saw her?

ALICE
She's almost here. On your left!

CARLISLE
Wait! She's in their territory.

ESME
She'll get away!

JASPER
No, she won't!

ESME
Emmett, no!




EDWARD
Do you regret going?

BELLA
No. It was really great seeing my mom. Just really hard saying goodbye.

EDWARD
It doesn't have to be goodbye.

BELLA
Is that why you asked me to go? You thought I was gonna change my mind?

EDWARD
I'm always hoping for that.

BELLA
What?

EDWARD
If I asked you to stay in the car, would you? Of course not.

BELLA
Hey.

JACOB
Charlie said you left town.

BELLA
Yeah...to visit my mom. Why?

EDWARD
He's checking to see if you're still human.

JACOB
Look, I'm here to warn you. If your kind come on our land again...

BELLA
Wait, what?

JACOB
You didn't tell her?

EDWARD
Just leave it alone, Jacob.

BELLA
Tell me what?

EDWARD
Emmett and Paul had a misunderstanding. It's nothing to worry about.

JACOB
Listen to you. Did you lie to get her out of town, too?

EDWARD
You should just leave. Now.

JACOB
She has a right to know. She is the one the redhead wants.

BELLA
Victoria? Alice's vision.

EDWARD
I was trying to protect you.

BELLA
By lying to me? O.k, we're gonna talk about this, but,...You. Why haven't you called me back?

JACOB
I had nothing to say.

BELLA
Well, I have tons. Hold on.

EDWARD
Hey... Bella...

BELLA
Edward, you have to trust me.

EDWARD
I do trust you. It's him I don't trust.

BELLA
Hey, lose the grin, Jacob. We're just going for a ride.

JACOB
Hold on tight.




BELLA
Are you sure this is a good idea? I am "the vampire girl", remember?

EMBRY
Hey, look who's back!

QUIL
What up, Bella?

BELLA
Quil? You, too?

QUIL
Yep. Finally made the pack.

EMBRY
I'm glad you're here, Bella. Maybe we can get a break from Jake's obsessive inner monologue.

PAUL
"I wish Bella would call."

JARED
"I wish Bella wouldn't call."

EMBRY
"Maybe I should call Bella."

QUIL
"Maybe I should call Bella and hang up."

JARED
"Maybe I should call Bella, say something, and then hang up."

JACOB
All right. I'm getting a new pack! Any suggestions?


JACOB
All right, you can shut up now.
Bella, this is Leah Clearwater -- Harry's daughter.

BELLA
Hey. I'm really sorry about your father.

LEAH
If you're here to torture Jacob some more, feel free to leave.

BELLA
Fun, isn't she?

EMILY
Bella! Hi!

BELLA
Hey.

EMILY
I was wondering when we'd see your face around here again.

BELLA
Yeah, same here.

JACOB
Sam, we good?

SAM
We're good. She won't be getting through our line any time soon.

JACOB
Cool.

PACK
Yeah, that's right boys!




BELLA
So when did Leah join the pack?

JACOB
Around when her dad died. Her brother, Seth, also phased. He's only 15 -one of the youngest we've had.
Sam keeps him home studying, but, he's chomping at the bit. I wish it was Leah who'd stay home.

BELLA
Come on, don't be such a guy.

JACOB
No, it's not a chick thing. It's, you know, a triangle thing. We all have to live "the Leah-Sam- Emily pain fest". Wolf telepathy, remember?

BELLA
So Sam dumpedLeah for Emily?

JACOB
It wasn't like that. Sam hates himself for hurting Leah, but, Emily was the one.

BELLA
I guess it sort of chooses you sometimes.

JACOB
It's more than some crush, Bella. Sam imprinted on Emily.

BELLA
Do I even want to know what that is?

JACOB
Imprinting on someone is like...like when you see her...everything changes.
All of a sudden, it's not gravity holding you to the planet. It's her. Nothing else matters. You would do anything / be anything for her.

BELLA
Sounds like you know the feeling. Have you imprinted on someone?

JACOB
You'd know if I had. I just have a direct line to Sam's thoughts.

BELLA
So for now, you're still you.

JACOB
And you're still you.

BELLA
Yeah...until graduation.

JACOB
Graduation?!

BELLA
You knew this was gonna happen.

JACOB
Not in a month! I mean, not before you've...you've even lived! Or before I could...
For a second, just a second, I thought...but, he's got his hooks in you so deep.

BELLA
I decided this. Not him.

JACOB
Bella, they're not even alive! It makes me sick. Better you really be dead than one of them.

BELLA
I can't believe you said that. Edward was right, I shouldn't have come.

JACOB
Bella, come on--please. ...I'm sorry.




CHARLIE
You know... Edward could at least respect meal times.

BELLA
I was just with Jake.

CHARLIE
Oh. Good!
I'll just give you two some privacy then.

BELLA
Hey.

EDWARD
Do you understand how worried I've been?

BELLA
I was perfectly safe.

EDWARD
I almost broke the treaty to make sure--

BELLA
I know. I smell like a dog. I'm sorry.

EDWARD
No, something's wrong.

BELLA
Edward, what's wrong?

EDWARD
Someone's been in here.




CARLISLE
Who was it? Someone we know?

EDWARD
This stranger, I didn't recognize his scent.

ESME
A nomad passing through?

ROSALIE
A passer-by wouldn't have left Bella's father alive.

JASPER
The scent disappeared about 5 miles south of Bella's house.

CARLISLE
Someone's orchestrating this.

BELLA
Victoria?

ALICE
I would have seen her decide.

EDWARD
Has to be the Volturi.

ALICE
I don't think it's the Volturi, either. I've been watching Aro's decisions, too.

EMMETT
So we keep looking.

CARLISLE
We'll also take shifts guarding Bella at her house.

ROSALIE
Another protection detail?

CARLISLE
Rosalie...

BELLA
No, she's right. You can't protect me, watch my dad, and search for the intruder.

ROSALIE
And for Victoria.

BELLA
And keep yourselves fed.

EDWARD
I'm not leaving you here defenseless.

BELLA
Well, I'm not gonna let you starve. And I wouldn't be unprotected. I--I have...

EDWARD
...What?




JACOB
Whoever it was, he left his stink behind. It'll be hard to miss when we cross it again. We'll handle it from here.

EDWARD
We don't need you to handle anything--or anyone.

JACOB
I could care less what you need.

BELLA
Ok, great! Then we'll all work together. Come on. We've all got the same goals here, right? -- To catch the bad vampires.

JACOB
Like there's a difference...


EDWARD
All right, we're done here.

JACOB
No, you're done here.

BELLA
Stop! Let go! I'm tired of this! From now on, I'm "Switzerland", o.k?

I know you guys don't like eachother, but, we've got bigger problems--lot's of them. This is just one temporary solution...if you'd be willing to try. Ok.

Edward hated the idea, but, it wasn't about rivalry anymore. It was about my safety, and Charlie's.
In the days that followed, I got them to at least try to work together.
The wolves took over so the Cullens could hunt. It wasn't exactly an easy alliance.





ANGELA
So, the University of Washington sent me and Eric our dorm assignments yesterday. I'm in the furthest dorm from campus. Eric's in the closest one, of course.
Is something wrong?


BELLA
...No. ...Why?


ANGELA
Well,
1: Edward's always with you, and
2: You keep looking out that window like you're hoping he'll show up and serenade you or something.


BELLA
Doubtful.


ANGELA
Ok. You don't have to talk about it.


BELLA
No, it's nothing. I mean, it is, but... Ok. You remember Jacob Black?


ANGELA
Oh! Ok. So--Edward's jealous.


BELLA
...You say that like it's really obvious.


ANGELA
Isn't it? I've seen the way Jacob looks at you. Edward's seen it, too. He's only human. He's gonna act like any other guy.


BELLA
No--I think it's a little more...complicated.


ANGELA
Say the word, Bella: Jealousy.


BELLA
I've told Jake how I feel. He understands.


ANGELA
Hm. Ok. So, the word is: Denial.


BELLA
You saying I'm an idiot?


ANGELA
No! Just a little oblivious.


BELLA
I mean every~every move I make hurts someone.


ANGELA
Bella, they're big boys. They make their own choices. Seriously, don't worry about it. It'll work itself out. It's not life or death.


BELLA
...Yeah.



EDWARD

Doesn't he own a shirt?

BELLA
Angela's a wise woman...


EDWARD
What's Angela got to do with anything?


BELLA
Nothing. I'm good here. You should go.

EDWARD
I'm not gonna be gone long.

BELLA
Don't rush. You need to hunt. Maybe rush a little bit.

JACOB
Hey, beautiful.

BELLA
Hi.

JACOB
So, what do you wanna do today? Bike, hike, just hang? Your call, but, we're going to a party tonight.




BELLA
Are you sure this is o.k? I really hate being a party crasher.

JACOB
Technically, you're a council meeting crasher.
You see? The council leaders, Dad,  Quil's grandpa, and Sue Clearwater. She took over for Harry when he died.

BELLA
O.k, I should not be here.

JACOB
You're o.k. I thought--I mean, they thought it would be good for you to hear the histories.

BELLA
The histories? The tribe's histories? Aren't they secret?

JACOB
We all got a role to play, and you're part of this.
I mean, it's the first time Seth, Leah, and Quil'll hear them, too--but, you are the first outsider--ever.

BELLA
If I had known that, I would have, like...I don't know, dressed better.

SETH
Jacob!

JACOB
Hey.

SETH
It's about time you got here. Paul's been hoovering the grub, but, I saved you some burgers.

JACOB
Good looking out, bro.
Bella, this is Seth Clearwater -- Leah's brother.

BELLA
Hi.

JACOB
Newest member of the pack.

SETH
Newest / Bestest / Brightest

JACOB
And slowest.

SETH
Come on! Your dad's about to start.

JACOB
O.k.




BILLY
The Quileutes have been a small tribe from the beginning, but, we have always had magic in our blood.
We were great spirit warriors--shape-shifters that transformed to the powerful wolf.
This enabled us to scare off our enemies and protect our tribe.
One day, our warriors came across a creature. It looked like a man, but, it was hard like stone, and cold as ice.
Our warriors' sharp teeth finally tore it apart, but, only fire would completely destroy it.
They lived in fear that the cold man was not alone...and they were right.
She took her vengeance out on the village.
Our elder chief, Taha Aki, was the only spirit warrior left to save the tribe after his son was killed.
Taha Aki's third wife could see that he would lose.
The third wife was no magical being, with no special powers but, one: ...courage.
The third wife's sacrifice distracted the cold woman long enough for Taha Aki to destroy her. She saved the tribe.
Over time, our enemies have disappeared.
but,, one remains: the cold ones.
Our magic awakens when they're near, and we sense it now.
We feel the threat in our blood.
Something terrible is coming, and we must all be ready. All of us.




BREE
What did you do to me? I'm so--

RILEY
--Yeah. I know. We'll find you someone to drink. The thirst will calm down after a while. I've got a year under my belt and I'm o.k.

NEWBORN
Mine!

RILEY
Just try not to get killed, will you? I'm gonna need numbers.




TV NEWS REPORTER
Seattle is in a state of terror. Police are baffled by the escalating murders and disappearances.
Theories range from a vicious new gang to a wildly active serial killer. Reporting live, Dawn Chubai, CNN.--


CARLISLE
It's getting worse. We're going to have to do something.

JASPER
It takes more than one of our kind to cause the damage they're reporting. Quite a few more. And they're undisciplined, conspicuous.

EDWARD
It's newborns.

BELLA
What--like new vampires?

EDWARD
In the first few months after the change--

JASPER
--that's when we're at our most uncontrollable; vicious; insane with thirst.

EMMETT
Something to look forward to.

JASPER
No one's trained these newborns, but, this isn't random.

CARLISLE
Someone's creating an army.

EMMETT
Well, now we're definitely going to Seattle.

BELLA
An army of vampires?

JASPER
And they've been created to fight someone.

EDWARD
We're the only clan even close to Seattle.

CARLISLE
Regardless of why they were made, if we don't put a stop to them, the Volturi will. I'm surprised they've let it go on this long.

EDWARD
Well, maybe they're ignoring it. Maybe they're behind it.
In Italy, I read Aro's mind. He tried to hide it, but, I saw.
He wants me and Alice to join him. He thinks our gifts would add to his power, but, he knows we'll never choose him as long as our family's still alive.

JASPER
An army could solve that for him.

BELLA
Edward, I don't think we should wait until graduation. I think you should change me now.

EDWARD
Bella, no.

BELLA
I'm a liability now. I could be an asset.

JASPER
You'd be a bigger liability as a newborn--unable to control your instincts--an easy target.

CARLISLE
There's also your father to consider--and your mother. Imagine how terrible it would be for them if you suddenly disappeared.

EMMETT
But...we're still gonna kick someone's ass, right?!





BELLA
Hey. Did you eat dinner yet?

CHARLIE
No, I haven't.
This kid, Riley Biers, disappeared over a year ago, and his poor parents have been papering Seattle with these things ever since.

BELLA
You think they should just give up?

CHARLIE
Well, I wouldn't if it were you. Not ever.




BELLA
I have to figure out what to tell people--Why I won't be home for Christmases, and why I won't visit; why they'll never see me again.

EDWARD
After a few decades, everyone you know will be dead. Problem solved.

BELLA
Why are you so against me becoming like you?

EDWARD
I've told you.

BELLA
Be honest with me. There's more.

EDWARD
I know the consequences of this choice you're making. I've lived through it...and to let you suffer that...
You believe I have a soul, and I don't--but, to risk yours, just for the sake of never having to lose you, that's the most selfish thing I'll ever do.

BELLA
I thought that you were afraid that I'd be too different. You know, like, I wouldn't be warm, and I wouldn't smell the same.

EDWARD
You'll always be my Bella. ...My Bella, just less fragile.




BELLA
Gosh, it's so pretty here.
So, Alice has planned a big graduation party--which you're invited to. Yeah, I figured that. What?

JACOB
I just wanted to do this differently; smoother. but,, now I'm out of time.

BELLA
Do what?

JACOB
You need to hear the truth, Bella -- Understand all your options.
And you need to know that I'm in love with you, and I want you to choose me instead of him.

BELLA
I thought you understood. I don't feel that way for you.

JACOB
I don't buy it.

BELLA
What don't you buy? That's how I feel.

JACOB
You feel something else for me. You just won't admit it...so, I'm not giving up. I'm gonna fight for you until your heart stops beating.

BELLA
Well, then you're not gonna have to fight for long.

JACOB
You'e rushing into it because you're afraid you'll change your mind.

BELLA
No, I'm not. I know what I want.

JACOB
You wouldn't have to change for me, Bella--or say goodbye to anybody.
I can give you more than him. I mean, he probably can't even kiss you without hurting you.
Feel that? Flesh and blood and warmth.

BELLA
God!




BELLA
Edward!

EDWARD
If you ever touch her against her will again...

BELLA
Don't do this here!

JACOB
She's not sure what she wants!

EDWARD
Let me give you a clue. Wait for her to say the words.

JACOB
Fine! Then she will.

BELLA
Jacob, just go, ok?!

CHARLIE
Hey, hey, hey! Easy, guys. Easy. Let's take it down a notch, alright? What's going on?

JACOB
I kissed Bella...and she broke her hand...punching my face. Total misunderstanding.




CARLISLE
It's just a sprain. It should heal fairly quickly.

EMMETT
Trying to walk and chew gum at the same time again, Bella?

BELLA
I punched a werewolf in the face.

EMMETT
Bad-ass! You're gonna be one tough little newborn.

BELLA
Tough enough to take you on.

EMMETT
Don't worry about it.

EDWARD
Got any leads?

JASPER
No sign of the intruder, but,, Victoria continues to make appearances.




ROSALIE
Go blather to someone else about the joys of becoming a newborn.

BELLA
O.k, Rosalie...I don't understand what I did to make you hate me so much.

ROSALIE
--Hate?...I don't hate you! I don't particularly like you, but,...
Bella, I envy you.

BELLA
What? That's ridiculous--

ROSALIE
--No, it's not. You have a choice. I didn't. None of us did, but, you do, and you're choosing wrong.
I don't care how miserable your human life is.

BELLA
My life is not miserable. I mean, it's not perfect. Nobody's life is perfect.

ROSALIE
Mine was. Absolutely perfect. There were things I still wanted:
to be married, with a nice house and a husband to kiss me when he came home; a family of my own.




ROSALIE 
...But, mostly, I wanted a baby...so much.

VERA
He never cries.

ROSALIE
Aren't you just the best little boy ever?

ROSALIE

Royce King was the most eligible bachelor in town. I barely knew him.
We were never alone, but, I was young. I was in love with the idea of love.
On the last night of my life, I left a friend's house late. I wasn't far from home.


ROYCE
There she is. Hey, Rose! Come over here!
Here, hold this.
Hey, come over here. We've been waiting for you. There she is.

ROSALIE
Royce. Royce! You're drunk.

ROYCE
Isn't she lovely, John? I told you she was a looker.

JOHN
It's hard to say with all those clothes on.

ROYCE
What do you say, Rose? Why don't we take off a few layers?

ROSALIE
Stop it. Stop it! Stop. Stop! I'll see you tomorrow--sober.

ROYCE
Hey, where do you think you're going?

ROYCE
I said, get... Come back... Hey!

ROSALIE
Stop! Stop! Get off me!

ROYCE
You'll do as I say!

ROSALIE
Let go of me! Stop! Stop! Let go! Stop!




ROSALIE
They left me in the street thinking I was dead. Believe me, I wanted to be.
Carlisle found me. He smelled all the blood. Thought he was helping me.

BELLA
I'm sorry.

ROSALIE
I got my revenge on them--one at a time. Saved Royce for last so he'd know I was coming. I was a little theatrical back then.
Things got better after I found Emmett--but, we'll always be this: Frozen--never moving forward.
That's what I miss the most:
Possibilities; Sitting on a front porch somewhere--Emmett, gray-haired, by my side, surrounded by our grandchildren--their laughter.

BELLA
I understand that that's what you want, but,, there's nothing I'm ever gonna want more than Edward.

ROSALIE
You're wrong again. After you've been changed, there's one thing you'll want more. One thing you'll kill for: ...Blood.




RILEY
What did I say about a low profile?!
Something's coming. Something bigger than any of us alone. And, if you can't control yourselves, we're all going to die.
But, together, we can crush anything. Do you understand? Do you--understand?! Now, what's done is done. Just...clean up after yourselves.




ALEC
How...indiscreet.


DEMITRI
They've already drawn too much attention.

FELIX
So has our inaction. Others may begin to question the Volturi's effectiveness.

JANE
Let them.

FELIX
Maybe we should consult with Aro.

JANE
Aro's decisions are being watched. We must decide.

ALEC
Then decide, sister. It's time.

JANE
Yes, it is. Either we let them do what they were created for, or we end them. Decisions, decisions.




JESSICA
When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were things like:
astronaut, president, or, in my case, a princess.

When we were 10, they asked again. We answered:
rock star, cowboy, or, in my case, a gold medalist.

But, now that we've grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how about this?:
Who the hell knows?

This isn't the time to make hard-and-fast decisions. This is the time to make mistakes.
Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere. Fall in love...a lot.
Major in philosophy, because there's no way to make a career out of that.
Change your mind, and change it again, because nothing's permanent.
So make as many mistakes as you can.
That way, someday, when they ask what we want to be, we won't have to guess--we'll know.




CHARLIE
Oh, I'm proud of you, Bells. Can't wait to see what you're going to do next. You're my biggest accomplishment.


BELLA
Dad... That's not true.


CHARLIE
Yes, it is! Well, you'll see one day when you have kids.


ANGELA

You made it!

JESSICA
Hey. What did you think of my speech? Too easy-breezy? Too self-helpful? You hated it?

BELLA
No. I think you pretty much nailed it.

JESSICA
Yeah? It's like I was born to lead, right?

ANGELA
I love this song! Let's go.

BELLA
What are you doing here?

JACOB
You invited me, remember?

BELLA
Was my right hook too subtle for you? That was me uninviting you.

JACOB
Look, Bella--I'm sorry about, you know, the kiss and your hand.
I'd blame it on the whole inner animal thing, but, it was really just me...being an ass. I'm really sorry.
I brought you something. A graduation present. I made it myself.

BELLA
Wow. You made this? It's really pretty. Thanks. I'll be right back.

BELLA
Alice, what'd you see?

ALICE
The decision's been made.

JACOB
What's going on?

BELLA
You're not going to Seattle.

ALICE
No.
They're coming here.




ALICE
They'll be here in four days.

CARLISLE
This could turn into a bloodbath.

EDWARD
Who's behind it?

ALICE
I didn't see anyone I recognized. Maybe one.

EDWARD
I know his face. He's local. Riley Biers. He didn't start this.

ALICE
Whoever did is staying out of the action.

CARLISLE
They must be playing with the blind spots in your vision.

JASPER
Either way, the army is coming and there aren't enough of us to protect the town.

JACOB
Hold up. What damn army?

CARLISLE
Newborns. Our kind.

EMBRY
What are they after?

ALICE
They were passing around Bella's scent. A red blouse.

JACOB
They're after Bella? What the hell does this mean?

CARLISLE
It means an ugly fight--with lives lost.

JACOB
Alright, we're in.

BELLA
No! You'd get yourselves killed. No way.

JACOB
I wasn't asking for permission.

BELLA
Edward?!

EDWARD
It means more protection for you.

CARLISLE
Jacob, do you believe Sam would agree to an understanding?

JACOB
As long as we get to kill some vampires.

CARLISLE
Jasper?

JASPER
They'll give us the numbers. Newborns won't know they even exist. That'll give us an edge.

CARLISLE
We'll need to coordinate.

BELLA
Carlisle, they're gonna get hurt!

CARLISLE
We'll all need some training. Fighting newborns requires knowledge that Jasper has. You're welcome to join us.

JACOB
Alright. Name the time and place.

BELLA
Jake, you don't know what you're getting yourself into.

JACOB
Bella, this is what we do. You should be happy. Look at us--working together.
You are the one who wanted us to get along, remember?




EMMETT
Again!

BELLA
It's a graduation present.

EDWARD
They don't trust us enough to be in their human forms.

CARLISLE
They came. That's what matters. Will you translate?

BELLA
Hey, Jake.

CARLISLE
Welcome. Jasper has experience with newborns. He'll teach us how to defeat them.

EDWARD
They want to know how the newborns differ from us.

CARLISLE
They're a great deal stronger than us because their own human blood lingers in their tissues.
Our kind is never more physically powerful than in our first several months of this life.

JASPER
Carlisle's right. That's why they are created.
A newborn army doesn't need thousands like a human army, but, no human army could stand against them.
Now, the two most important things to remember are:
first--never let them get their arms around you. They'll crush you instantly.
And second--never go for the obvious kill. They'll be expecting that, and you will lose.
Emmett. Don't hold back.

EMMETT
Not in my nature.

BELLA
Some of you are gonna get hurt. Some of you could get killed because of me. It's gonna be 100 times worse than this, right?

EDWARD
Done for the day.




BELLA
Jasper? Are you sure there's nothing I can do to help?

JASPER
Well, your presence alone, your scent, will distract the newborns. Their hunting instinct will take over and drive them crazy.

BELLA
Good. I'm glad. Hey. How do you know so much about this?

JASPER
I didn't have quite the same upbringing as my adopted siblings.

BELLA
Those bites are like mine.

JASPER
Battle scars. All the training the Confederate Army gave me was useless against the newborns. Still, I never lost a fight.

BELLA
This happened during the Civil War?

JASPER
I was the youngest major in the Texas cavalry. All without having seen any real battle.

BELLA
Until?

JASPER
Till I met a certain immortal: Maria.




JASPER
I was riding back to Galveston (after evacuating a column of women and children) when I saw them. I immediately offered them my aid.

LUCY
Lovely. And an officer.

NETTIE
You'd better do it, Maria. I can never stop once I've started.

MARIA
What's your name, soldier?

JASPER
Major Jasper Whitlock, ma'am.

MARIA
I hope you survive. You may be of great use to me.

BELLA
Maria was creating an army?

JASPER
They were very common in the South. There were constant brutal battles for territory. Maria won them all.
She was smart, careful, and she had me. I was her second in command.
My ability to control emotions served her well. I trained her newborns
--an endless occupation since she never let them live beyond their first year.
It was my job to dispose of them. I could feel everything they felt. I thought what Maria and I had was love
--but, I was her puppet. She pulled the strings. I didn't know there was another way till I found Alice.
Now, she'd seen me coming, of course.

ALICE
You kept me waiting long enough.

JASPER
My apologies, ma'am. I don't know what I'd have become without her.

ALICE
You never have to be that again.




VICTORIA
Jasper, I want you to do something for me: kill her.

EDWARD
What is it?

BELLA
The intruder, the newborn army--they're all her puppets--Victoria.

EDWARD
Alice would have seen if she wanted to make an army--

BELLA
--Unless she's hiding behind them and she's letting someone else decide.




VICTORIA
Welcome to the army.




BELLA
I'm not just gonna hide while you're out taking all the risks for me.

EDWARD
If it's Victoria involved, I need to keep you as far away from the fight as possible.

BELLA
Jasper said that I could be of help.

EDWARD
We won't need your help. With the wolves in this, it's an easy win. The rest of us aren't gonna have enough to do.

BELLA
O.k? Either it's so dangerous that I have to hide, or it's so easy that you're gonna be sidelined. Which is it?

EDWARD
It's dangerous for you; it's easy for us.

BELLA
I think it's dangerous for us to be apart. How many times do we have to prove that?
I'll be worried, you'll be worried, and we'll both be more vulnerable.

EDWARD
O.k, you're right.

BELLA
So I'm coming with you.

EDWARD
No, we both stay away together.

BELLA
I can't make you choose between me and your family.

EDWARD
The only way I can protect you is to be with you.




JACOB
You're not fighting? What, did you pull a muscle or something?

BELLA
He's doing it for me, o.k?

JACOB
Whatever. Just tell me the plan.

JASPER
This field will give us an advantage in battle. We need to lure the newborns with Bella's scent, but, it needs to end here.

BELLA
Edward and I are going to a campsite. Even if he carries me, they'll still pick up on our scents.

EDWARD
Your stench, however, is revolting.

JACOB
Dude, you really don't wanna start comparing stinks.

BELLA
What he means is that your scent will mask mine if you carry me.

JACOB
Done.

EDWARD
This is not a good idea.

JASPER
Edward, they won't want to get anywhere near his odor.

BELLA
O.k. Let's just try it.

JACOB
Eau de wolf coming up.

EDWARD
Run.




JACOB
So you gonna ask me to sit out of the fight, too? Or don't you care about my safety?

BELLA
Of course, I care. but, you'd say no.

JACOB
I won't have a choice, anyways; since I let Sam be alpha male, I gotta live with the shots he calls.

BELLA
Since you let Sam be alpha?

JACOB
I didn't wanna be in a pack, let alone be its leader.

BELLA
Wow. Chief Jacob.

JACOB
Opted out. But, every choice has its consequences. Some more than others.

BELLA
Don't start. Everybody makes choices. You're gonna have to accept mine.

JACOB
But, you can love more than one person at a time. I've seen it--with Sam, Emily, and Leah.

BELLA
Well, I'm not a wolf. I can't imprint.

JACOB
It has nothing to do with imprinting.
It has to do with feeling something for somebody, and I know you feel something for me.
I can sense how I make you feel--physically. I make you nervous.

BELLA
Jake...

JACOB
Don't worry. I promised I wouldn't kiss you again till you asked.

BELLA
You're gonna be keeping that promise for a while, chief.




JASPER
All I picked up was wolf stench--No Bella. This will work.

EDWARD
Great.




ALICE
Yes. Scout's honor.

CHARLIE
O.k, Alice, don't be a stranger.

ALICE
O.k.

ALICE
Your alibi for the battle is all arranged.

BELLA
Really?

ALICE
I told your father that our whole family's going camping this weekend, so you and I are having a sleepover at my house.
Charlie's going fishing, anyway.

BELLA
Charlie? You guys are on first name basis now?

ALICE
Me, he likes. Actually, you and Edward will have the house to yourself tonight.

BELLA
Like, alone?

ALICE
We're all going hunting--powering up for the battle. You're welcome.




BELLA
Hey. You want a sandwich?

CHARLIE
No, I'm good. Well, the sister, I like.

BELLA
Alice. Yeah, she's great. Hey, Dad, I was wondering. Why didn't you get remarried--after Mom?

CHARLIE
I don't know. Guess I still haven't met the right gal. Why?

BELLA
I don't know. I thought you just maybe gave up on the whole institution of it--of marriage.
But, do you think there's any value in it?

CHARLIE
Yeah. Yeah, marriage has value--when you're older--much older--like your mother.
It seemed to work out fine for her the second time around, later in life.

BELLA
Yeah, I guess.

CHARLIE
I mean, you definitely don't wanna have to get married because you weren't...careful.

BELLA
...What?

CHARLIE
Look, you know what I'm talking about. There's things you need to think about if you're gonna be physically intimate--

BELLA
--O.k, don't have "the talk" with me, please.

CHARLIE
Well, it's just as embarrassing for me as it is for you.

BELLA
I doubt that. And don't bother, 'cause Mom beat you to it like 10 years ago.

CHARLIE
Well, you didn't have a boyfriend 10 years ago.

BELLA
I'm sure things work the same way.

CHARLIE
All right, so...you guys are taking precautions?--...

BELLA
--O.k, Dad, please just don't worry about that. Edward is..."old school".

CHARLIE
..."Old school". Great. What's that? Like, code for something?

BELLA
Oh, my God. Dad. I'm a virgin.

CHARLIE
O.k! Good. Glad we covered that.

BELLA
Me, too.

CHARLIE
Virgin. I'm liking Edward a little bit more now.




EDWARD
What are you doing outside? What's wrong?

BELLA
Nothing.

EDWARD
It seems only fair that I be represented, as well.

BELLA
It's really pretty. Thanks. There's a bed.

EDWARD
I thought you might need one to sleep in.

BELLA
I think an air mattress would have sufficed.

EDWARD
Is this too much?

BELLA
No. No, it's perfect. I wanna ask you something.

EDWARD
Anything.

BELLA
O.k, marriage is the condition for you to change me yourself, right?

EDWARD
Yes.

BELLA
O.k. I wanna negotiate my own condition.

EDWARD
Anything you want, it's yours.

BELLA
You promise?

EDWARD
Yeah.

BELLA
O.k.

EDWARD
Hey, Bella...no.

BELLA
But, you said that you wanted me to have every human experience.

EDWARD
Not ones that will risk killing you--

BELLA
--You won't. And everyone says once I'm changed all I'll want is to slaughter the whole town.

EDWARD
That part doesn't last forever.

BELLA
I want you, while I'm still me, while I still want you this way.

EDWARD
It's too dangerous.

BELLA
Try. Just try. I'll go to some ridiculously expensive college and let you buy me a car. I'll marry you. Just try.

EDWARD
Stop trying to take your clothes off.

BELLA
You wanna do that part?

EDWARD
Not tonight.

BELLA
You...you mean, you don't...That's fine.

EDWARD
Believe me, I want to. I just want to be married to you first.

BELLA
You really make me feel like I'm some sort of villain trying to steal your virtue or something.

EDWARD
It's not my virtue I'm concerned about.

BELLA
Are you kidding?

EDWARD
It's just one rule I wanna leave unbroken. It might be too late for my soul, but, I will protect yours.
I know that's not a modern notion--

BELLA
--It's not modern--it's ancient.

EDWARD
I'm from a different era. Things were a lot less complicated--and if I'd have met you back then, I would have courted you.
We would have taken chaperoned strolls--and had iced tea on the porch.
I may have stolen a kiss or two, but, only after asking your father's permission,
I would have got down on one knee, and I would have presented you with a ring.
This was my mother's.
IsaBella Swan, I promise to love you every moment of forever. Would you do me the extraordinary honor of marrying me?

BELLA
Yes.




RILEY
You're not coming with us?

VICTORIA
It'll be a last minute decision. I told you how it works.

RILEY
The Cullens have powers.

VICTORIA
Don't underestimate them, Riley. You'll have the numbers, but,, they'll be able to anticipate your every move.

RILEY
According to your friend?

VICTORIA
Yes. My dead friend. Laurent found out about the things they could do, and they killed him, but,, not before he told me.

RILEY
Maybe he was wrong. I mean, this is supposed to be Cullen territory. We've been tearing it up and I've never even seen them here.

VICTORIA
You don't trust me?

RILEY
With my life! I'm just saying...

VICTORIA
I'm doing this for us so that we can feed without their retaliation--I can't live in fear anymore waiting for them to attack!

RILEY
I won't let them. I am going to end the Cullen clan. I swear.

VICTORIA
I love you...so much.




EDWARD
You're going overboard.

BELLA
If this is all I can contribute, I wanna be thorough.

EDWARD
The newborns'll be frantic.

BELLA
It's o.k. Don't make yourself uncomfortable.

EDWARD
It doesn't bother me anymore.

BELLA
Since when?

EDWARD
Since I spent 24 hours thinking you were dead. You're not wearing your ring.

BELLA
Well, I didn't want to risk losing it...

EDWARD
...Or risk Jacob seeing it.

BELLA
I think we should wait to tell him. I mean, at least till after the fight.

EDWARD
If you're having second thoughts--

BELLA
--I'm not. I just want him to have a clear head.

JACOB
Whose head is unclear?

BELLA
Nobody's, I hope.

EDWARD
Alice says there's a storm coming.

JACOB
Yeah, I can feel it. We should get going.

EDWARD
I'll see you in a couple of hours.

JACOB
Something up?

BELLA
Bunch of vampires trying to kill me.

JACOB
Same old same old.




EDWARD
Thank you.

BELLA
You should get back before the storm hits.

JACOB
No, I'm staying. You'll need my connection to the pack to keep tabs on what's going on.

BELLA
You're not gonna fight?

JACOB
Seth will spell me in the morning. He's not happy about missing the action, but, it'll keep him out of trouble.

EDWARD
Let's get you inside.




EDWARD
I should have chosen a site lower down.

BELLA
No, it's fine. I'm o.k.

EDWARD
What can I do?




JACOB
I can't sleep with all that teeth chattering going on.

EDWARD
Forget it.

JACOB
She may need her toes someday; And let's face it: I am hotter than you. Get your hand off me!

EDWARD
Keep your hands off her!

BELLA
Don't fight.

JACOB
If she gets sick, it's on you. Wow. You're freezing, Bella. Relax. You'll warm up soon--faster if you took your clothes off.

BELLA
Jake.

JACOB
Survival 101.




EDWARD
Can you at least attempt to control your thoughts?

JACOB
I really get under that ice-cold skin of yours, don't I?
What?--Are you doubting her feelings for you?
Nice. So picking through my brain's o.k, but, letting me into yours, forget it.
Look, I know she's in love with you--

EDWARD
--Good.

JACOB
--but,she's in love with me, too. She just won't admit it to herself.

EDWARD
I can't tell if you're right.

JACOB
Then let me ask you something: If she chooses me--

EDWARD
--She won't.

JACOB
--If she did, would you try to kill me?

EDWARD
That's an intriguing idea, but, no. I couldn't hurt her like that.

JACOB
So you'd just turn her into a blood-sucking demon like you?

EDWARD
I don't want that. I never wanted that.

JACOB
So, stop her.

EDWARD
I tried. I left.

JACOB
But, you gave up too quickly. If you'd stayed away another 6 months, I could've made her happy. Trust me.
You have to consider that I might be better for her than you are.

EDWARD
I have considered that. I know you can protect her; that you can give her a life--a human life. That's all I want for her.
But, I'm not...I'm not going to force her into anything ever again. The last time I tried, it almost killed us both.

JACOB
Yeah. That I remember. When you thought she was gone, that you'd lost her, how did you...cope?

EDWARD
There are no words. But, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, Jacob. This might sound odd, but, I'm glad you're here.

JACOB
Meaning,
"As much as I'd love to kill you, I'm glad she's warm."

EDWARD
If we weren't natural enemies. and you weren't trying to steal my reason for existing, I might actually like you.

JACOB
Well, if you weren't planning on sucking the life out of the girl I love, I might...no. Not even then.
But, she could still change her mind, you know.

EDWARD
Then I'd let her go.




BELLA
Right. Hey, Seth. Where's Jacob? Did he already--

EDWARD
--Not yet. He's checking to see if the woods are clear before he goes.

BELLA
I'm really sorry about last night. That couldn't have been easy on you.

EDWARD
It definitely won't make my list of top 10 favorite evenings.

BELLA
You have a list?

EDWARD
All 10 I spent with you. Number one is when you said you'd marry me, "Mrs. Cullen".

BELLA
This is the 21st century. I, at least, want to hyphenate my name.

JACOB
You're marrying him?!

BELLA
Jake?! I--You knew he was listening!

EDWARD
He deserves to know.

BELLA
Jake, stop!

EDWARD
BELLA, let him--

BELLA
Don't! Jake, stop! Jake, please!




JACOB
I'm done! I'm so done!

BELLA
What can I do?

JACOB
You can't do anything. I can, by going out there and killing something.

BELLA
No! You're not thinking clearly! Don't do that!

JACOB
Maybe I'll get myself killed and make it simple for you.

BELLA
No! Just--Jake...stay.

JACOB
Why? Give me one good reason.

BELLA
Because I don't wanna lose you.

JACOB
It's not good enough.

BELLA
Because you're too important.

JACOB
Still not good enough.

BELLA
Jacob! ...Kiss me. I'm asking you to kiss me.

JACOB
That should have been our first kiss. I gotta go. I'll be back.




BELLA
You saw.

EDWARD
No, but...Jacob's thoughts are pretty loud.

BELLA
I don't know what happened.

EDWARD
You love him.

BELLA
I love you more.

EDWARD
I know, but, when I left--I left you bleeding, and Jacob stitched you up. It's left it's mark on both of you, and that's my fault.

BELLA
Don't blame yourself.

EDWARD
I just want you to be happy--no matter.
It's starting. Jacob just got there. He's good.

BELLA
Someone's hurt?

EDWARD
She's close. I can hear her thoughts. Seth, go!
She knew we weren't there, but, she caught my scent. She knew you'd be with me.

BELLA
She found us.

EDWARD
She's not alone.
Riley, listen to me. Victoria's just using you to distract me. She knows I'll kill you.
In fact, she'll be glad she doesn't have to deal with you anymore.

VICTORIA
Don't listen, Riley. I told you about their mind tricks.

EDWARD
I can read her mind, so, I know what she thinks of you.

VICTORIA
He's lying.

EDWARD
She only created you and this army to avenge her true mate: James. That's the only thing she cares about. Not you.

VICTORIA
There's only you! You know that.

EDWARD
Think about it. You're from Forks. You know the area. That's the only reason she chose you. She doesn't love you.

VICTORIA
Riley, don't let him do this to us. You know I love you.

RILEY
You're dead.

EDWARD
You won't get another chance like this again. You want her.
You want me to feel the pain you felt when I killed James--when I tore him to pieces--when I turned him into ash--
--when I turned him into nothing.

RILEY
Victoria! Victoria! Victoria!

EDWARD
Something is wrong. Alice needs us to go--now.




EDWARD
How long?

ALICE
A few minutes. Maybe 10.

CARLISLE
The pack needs to leave. The Volturi won't honor a truce with the werewolves.

EDWARD
Leah don't!

BELLA
Jacob!

EDWARD
Jacob. Hold on. Carlisle's gonna take care of you.

CARLISLE
The bones on the right half of his body are shattered.

JACOB
Bella

BELLA
Jake, I'm right here.

LEAH
Jacob, you idiot--I had it!

SAM
Leah!

CARLISLE
I need to set the bones before his accelerated healing kicks in. It's already starting.

EDWARD
We need to get him out of here. We're not gonna win a fight with the Volturi.

SAM
We'll take him back to Billy's.

CARLISLE
I'll be there soon as I can.

BELLA
Hang in there, Jake.

PAUL
It's o.k. We got you. We got you.




ALICE
They're coming.

JANE
Impressive. I've never seen a coven escape an assault of this magnitude intact.

CARLISLE
We were lucky.

JANE
I doubt that.

ALEC
It appears we missed an entertaining fight.

JANE
Yes. It's not often we're rendered unnecessary.

EDWARD
If you'd arrived a half hour ago, you would have fulfilled your purpose.

JANE
Pity. You missed one.

CARLISLE
We offered her asylum in exchange for her surrender.

JANE
That wasn't yours to offer.
Why did you come? Who created you?

ESME
You don't need to do that. She'll tell you anything you want to know.

JANE
I know.

BREE
I don't know! Riley wouldn't tell us. He said our thoughts weren't safe.

EDWARD
Her name was Victoria. Perhaps you knew her.

CARLISE
Edward, if the Volturi had knowledge of Victoria, they would have stopped her. Isn't that right, Jane?

JANE
Of course. Felix.

ESME
She didn't know what she was doing! We'll take responsibility for her.

CARLISLE
Give her a chance.

JANE
The Volturi don't give second chances. Keep that in mind. Caius will be interested to know that she's still human.

BELLA
The date is set.

JANE
Take care of that, Felix. I'd like to go home.




BELLA
Hey...

QUIL
It's been going on for a while.

EMBRY
Doc's re-breaking his bones.

LEAH
Why did he have to butt in? I could've taken that tick.

PAUL
Oh, give it a rest, Leah.

CARLISLE
The worst is over. He'll be all right.
I gave him some morphine, but, his body temperature will burn it off soon. I'll come back to set up a drip.

BILLY
Thank you.

CARLISLE
He's asking for you.




BELLA
Hey, Jake.

JACOB
Hey. I was worried about you.

BELLA
You were worried about me?

JACOB
Yeah. I guessed Edward would read my thoughts. Was he hard on you?

BELLA
He wasn't even mad at me--or you.

JACOB
Well, damn. He's better than I thought.

BELLA
He's not playing a game.

JACOB
Right. Bella, he's not as perfect as you think.

BELLA
I know who he is. Can we just not talk about that?

JACOB
I'd rather get all the re-breaking done at once.
Well, at least I know I did everything I could. It wasn't easy making you admit your feelings for me.

BELLA
I only fought them because I knew they wouldn't change anything.

JACOB
I'm exactly right for you, Bella. It would be as easy as breathing, with me.

BELLA
You know I love you.

JACOB
You know how much I wish it was enough.

BELLA
Should I come back?

JACOB
I need some time, but, I'll always be waiting--

BELLA
--until my heart stops beating.

JACOB
Maybe even then.




EDWARD
August 13th?

BELLA
Yeah. It's a month before my birthday. I don't need to be another year older than you.
Alice said she could get the wedding together by then.

EDWARD
I'm sure she can. There's no rush.

BELLA
I've chosen my life. I want to start living it.

EDWARD
And so you're gonna let Alice plan the whole thing?
The dress / the reception / the guest list? I mean, who knows who she's gonna invite.

BELLA
Does it matter?

EDWARD
I just don't know why you're doing this.

BELLA
What? The wedding?

EDWARD
No. You're trying to make everyone else happy, but, you're already giving away too much.

BELLA
You're wrong.
This wasn't a choice between you and Jacob. It was between who I should be and who I am.
I've always felt out of step, like, literally stumbling through my life.
I've never felt normal, because I'm not normal. I don't want to be.
I've had to face death and loss and pain in your world, but, I've also never felt stronger and more real;
more myself, because it's my world, too. It's where I belong.

EDWARD
So it's not just about me?

BELLA
No. Sorry. I've made a mess trying to figure all this out, but, I wanna do it right;
And, I wanna tie myself to you in every way humanly possible.

EDWARD
Starting with a wedding.

BELLA
Actually, something a little more difficult first--and maybe even dangerous: We have to tell Charlie.

EDWARD
That's highly dangerous.

BELLA
It's a good thing you're bullet-proof. I'm gonna need that ring.
