I don't have my book with me so it's not that accurate

When Kyle regains consciousness after trying to kill Wanda:
Kyle: Oh it didn't fall.
(Jared punches him and he's out cold again)
Doc: Um...medically speaking, I don't think that was the best thing for him at that time.
Jared: But I feel better!
Hahahaha!!! :lol:

Ian: I would love you, no matter what.
Wanda: Ian, what if I had come here in Magnolia's body?

Jamie: Why does Jared have Sharon in a headlock?
Ian: She's in a grumpy mood.

Any banter between the O'Shea brothers had me smiling widely :D

Ian: You're such an idiot Kyle!
Kyle: You got the brains I got the looks, it's only fair.

Ian: Nice to see you again Jodi, altho I can't imagine anyone wanting to be back with Kyle . I would think you had a nice break without him.
Kyle: Wanda, sorry, I was wrong.
Ian: Doc, PLEASE tell me you have some sort of recording device.
Doc: Sorry nope.
Ian: Fugures. I never thought I'd live to see the day Kyle admit he was wrong. Come on, Jodes, that should have shocked you awake.
Kyle: Jodi, baby, don't you want to defend me. Tell Ian I am never wrong.

Ian: I should have killed him! No! Our mom should have drowned him at birth!!

I heart Ian ;)
Those crack me up too! When I first read them, reading the book, It was hilarious and it still busts a side :lol: :lol:

Though the one quote I love the most, and it seriously gave me the chills and my heart, like, stopped when I read this. I am NOT lying:
It goes along the lines of:
"You get to stay here. That's not fair."
"You're right SunnY It's not fair. But I'm not staying. I have to go too."
That ONE line right there, just gave me intense chills. I love that part.

I. LoVE. IaN. :mrgreen:

I love all these quotes, but the parts that just got me were:

1)Where Mel and Wanda are saying good-bye right before Wanda is supposed to die.

2)When Jared catches up to Wanda on her walk to the Hospital right before she "dies" and Jared asks what can he do for her and she says.."Give me a lie Jared, tell me you want me to stay.." *Tear...*

3)What Doc says to Wanda as he gets ready to remove her.."You are the noblest, purest creature I've ever met. The Universe will be a darker place without you.."

and finally...

4) When Wanda tells Sunny that she has to leave too..and then we hear Ian say..."What!" (That part just broke me down...I was like "NOOOOOOOOOOoooooooo.....she has to stay for Ian!"

As you can tell I love Ian!


Jace Lightwood, Edward Cullen, Ian O'Shea, and Jasper Cullen.....these are the only men I need in my life!

Pretty much the same reaction I ad when Edward left. But then Jake came. :D
That was basically word-for-word the same thing I was thinking!

Ian had the ability to make me laugh and cry so hard. He's without the doubt the best character Stephenie has created so far.

And not just to praise Ian - because I do know there's an entire topic for him alone - I should probably mention some of my favorite quotes:

"Her name is Wanda not it. You will not touch her. Any mark you leave on her, I will double on your worthlesss hide"

"Melanie Stryder! You will not leave me. Don't you love me? Prove it! Prove it! Damn it, Mel! Get back here!"
For some reason that reminds me so much of Heathcliff and Catherine in Wuthering Heights.

And I love the scene where Ian just sits with Wanda for THREE WHOLE DAYS! That was so beautiful thing to do. Also the scene when Ian finds out Wanda's leaving to some other planet and they'll have that argument just makes me cry so hard!

And the line "I, the soul called Wanderer, love you, human Ian" somehow made me think of Me Tarzan You Jane :D

Also the part where Ian and Kyle are talking and trying to get Jodi to wake up was one of the best parts! Oh and definitely the part where Kyle apologizes Wanda for trying to kill her and being wrong about it and Ian asks Doc if he's got any recording device :)

You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me.

The first time I read it i got chills. The second time I read it... more chills. This line and the line Ian has about holding Wanda in his hand and how beautiful she is sealed the deal for me that I could fall in love with Ian were he a real person. Sigh...
I cried uncontrollably when he said those lines. My heart breaks every time. I also love the line,

"But if you try cuddling up to me tonight... so help me O'Shea."

"Not to sound overly arrogant, but to be perfectly honest, Jarad, were I so inclined, I think I could do better."

Gets me every time :lol:

You are exactly my brand of heroin.

At the time, all I could think was, 'Not her'.

As if I needed another motive to kill you.

You are the most important thing to me now. The most important thing to me ever.

Edward: And so the lion fell in love with the lamb ...
Bella: Stupid lamb.
Edward: Sick, masochistic lion.

As you are not addicted to any illegal substances, you probably can't empathize completely.
