"Childhood is not

from birth to a certain age.

"And at a certain age, the child is grown

and puts away childish things.

"Childhood is the kingdom

where nobody dies."

Jake! Jacob!



lt's happening.


You just have to break them in.

l've been breaking them in. For three days.

Can l just go barefoot?

No, absolutely not.

Just thinking it's a little much, you know?

The dress and the shoes,

and all of this.

No, it's exactly enough.

Tomorrow will be perfect.

Where do you want them, boss?

On either side of the aisle.

-What aisle?

-Does no one have vision?

You, go home and get lots of beauty sleep.

That's an order.


l was just checking for cold feet.

Well, mine are toasty warm.

lt's not too late to change your mind.

What? Now you're having second thoughts?

You are.

No, l've been waiting a century

to marry you, Miss Swan.


l haven't told you everything about myself.

What? You're not a virgin?



Look, you can't scare me away now.

Look, a few years after Carlisle created me,

l rebelled against him.

l resented him for curbing my appetite.

And so for a while, l went off on my own.

l wanted to know how it felt to hunt.



To taste human blood.



All the men I killed

were monsters.

And so was I.

Edward, they were all murderers.

You probably saved more lives

than you took.

Bella, that's what l told myself.

But they were all human beings.

l looked into their eyes as they died

and l saw who l was,

and what l was capable of.

And what l'll be capable of.

Why are you telling me this tonight?

Did you really think

this was gonna change my mind about you?

l just wondered

if it would change your mind about yourself,

and who you wanna see when

you look in the mirror a year from now.

l know l can do this.

Let me tell you why.

Because you did.


You should give yourself

some credit for that.

Now, hopefully, a year from now,

l'm gonna look in the mirror

and see someone like you.

l mean, someone capable of courage

and sacrifice and love.


-What is that?

Come on! Let's go!

-l'm late for my bachelor party.

Send him out, Bella,

or we're coming in after him.

So, this party.

Will there be strippers?


No, just a couple of mountain lions.

Maybe a few bears.

Don't worry, Bella,

we'll give him back in plenty of time.

Okay, go, before they break my house.

Let's go! Let's go!

l'll meet you at the altar.

l'll be the one in white.

That was very convincing.


What did l say about beauty sleep?

Sorry, bad dream.

lt was wedding jitters.

Do you need some help?

l could do her hair.



l'm not offended by your choice of groom.

Just my blatant lack of respect for mortality.


Weddings. They bring everyone together.

Hey, so, did you find our daughter?

Are those graduation caps?

(LAUGHS) How creative!

Or weird.

Alice? Bella?

ln here, Mom.

(GASPS) Oh, my gosh!

You're so beautiful.

Oh, honey.

Crap! My mascara.



Charlie, get in here.

You sure? l don't wanna...

l know. l look hot.


We thought you needed something blue.

And something old.

-Besides your mother.

-(SCOFFS) Nice.

-lt was Grandma Swan's.

-But we added the sapphires.

lt's beautiful, you guys.

Wow. Thank you so much.

lt's your first family heirloom.

Pass on to your daughter, and her daughter.

Mom, l love it.

Nope. No smudging my masterpiece.

She's right.
