Bella: Hey, sorry I'm late. Biology project.

Bella’s father: I ordered you the spinach salad. I hope that's okay.

Bella: You should order one for yourself next time. Cut back on the steak.

Bella’s father: Hey, I'm as healthy as a horse.

Cora: Say, Chief, boys want to know, did you find anything down by Queets River today?

Bella’s father: Yeah, we found a bare human footprint, but it looks like whoever that is, is headed east, so Kitsap County sheriff is gonna take over from here. Okay?

Cora: I just hope they catch him fast.

Bella’s father: Looks like your friends are flagging you. It's okay if you wanna go join them. I'm just gonna turn in early anyway.

Bella: Me, too.

Bella’s father: Bella, it's Friday night. Go out. Looks like the Newton boy's got a big smile for you.

Bella: Yeah, he's a good buddy.

Bella’s father: What about any of these other yahoos in town? Anybody interest you?

Bella: Dad, we gonna talk about boys?

Bella’s father: Yeah, I guess not. I just feel like I leave you alone too much. You should be around people.

Bella: I don't really mind being alone. I guess I'm kind of like my dad in that way.


Bella: So, how's all the baseball stuff going?

Bella’s mother: Phil's working so hard. You know, spring training. We're looking for a house to rent in case things become more permanent. You'd like Jacksonville, baby.

Bella: Yeah? I'm really liking Forks.

Bella’s mother: What?

Bella: Forks is growing on me.

Bella’s mother: Could a guy have anything to do with that?

Bella: Well, yeah.

Bella’s mother: I knew it. Tell me everything. What is he? Jock? Indie? I bet he's smart. Is he smart?

Bella: Mom, can I talk to you later?

Bella’s mother: Come on, we gotta talk boys. Are you being safe?

Bella: How did you get in here?

Edward: The window.

Bella: Do you do that a lot?

Edward: Well, just the past couple of months. I like watching you sleep. It's kind of fascinating to me. I always want to try one thing. Just stay very still. Don't move.
