I really don't understand why some people want
him to be giving Emmett the finger- even when the situation and context show it to be a snap.
As far as the restaurant scene- what, a gentleman can't discuss sex? He wasn't rude or crude about it.
I just read this entire thread, and I have to say, I agreed with like every single post of yours. Every time I was thinking of responding to someone, you took the words out of my mouth.
You're right - it's not like Edward isn't allowed to say the word "sex." There's nothing dirty or rude about that - he's just saying what is on someone else's mind. In later books he even admits that sometimes it's on HIS mind. It's totally normal, and there's nothing ungentlemanly about that.
The middle finger??? Really??? I mean it's one thing if we're watching an outtake and Robert Pattinson is flipping of Kellan Lutz. But this is the movie. We are supposed to believe these characters - and the director never would have let Edward flip off Emmett. I know they fight and wrestle and act like boys sometimes, but come on. I can't really believe people are still clinging to that.
However, sometimes things slip. Like did anyone else notice that there's a part during the meadow scene, where he's standing up higher than Bella, and we see a wide angle shot with both Edward and Bella in it, and the sound is silent but you can see Rob's lips moving? It's kind of hard to notice because it's not a close-up, but I guess this was a little editing boo boo. I think they also decided not to sound-over the part where Edward opens up Bella's door for her on "everyone's staring" day. It looks like Edward says, "come on." Kinda non-Edward like. That little bit bugs me.
And in the restaurant with Charlie when Bella is using the ketchup, she squeezes, shakes, nothing comes out, and then she puts it back down again.
When the Cullens first walk into the lunch room, Jasper has a lunch tray already. Didn't he come from outside? The next time the camera goes to the Cullen table, which is like a second later, Edward now has a tray of food.
Apparently Bella hasn't ALWAYS hated cold, wet things - she made quite a few paper snowflakes when she was littler - they are hanging on her bulletin board.
I don't think that it's weird that the Cullens chew food at lunch - as Alice said, they need to be responsible. They are just being smart. Of course if they actually swallow anything, they need to bring it back up later as they can't digest it - but they are probably pros at spitting into napkins. It's cute that Rosalie nibbles an apple at one point.
I think Rosalie just wears gloves a lot to accentuate the fact that the Cullens are accustomed to covering up their skin.
The Cullens always dress using a cool color palatte.
I love the way Emmett moves at school - especially when jumping out of the jeep. So graceful, even for his large size - as mentioned by Bella in the book. And the way that they made it look like Edward swung up into the truck bed and bounced out in one leap after he saved her from the van.
I think Emmett just has the eggs because it's like he's "bringing a bag lunch," and obviously he's very muscular - he has to put on a show for the humans. If they look at him they can't think, "wow that guy's unnaturally huge for a high school student," they have to think - "oh, well he eats like 2 cartons of eggs a week - he packs on the protein."
When Bella opens the door to the office after Biology, there is a "Push" sign on the door. Obviously this could be on any door, but it reminds me of La Push, and it makes me think of the tension of that scene. Edward trying to push away thoughts of killing Bella, push himself away from close proximity to her, and how Bella feels the need to confront him.
Spartan colors are blue and yellow - put them together and you have green, the official color of Forks.
RE: Cora the waitress? Her script bio said that she's single, but has a crush on Charlie Swan. So she wasn't with Waylon, but that explains why she lingers on Charlie a little too longingly when she says, "your dad still has it - every Thursday."
Empty ketchup bottle on the Cullen table on the day when Edward isn't there at the lunch table. Kind of like the vamps won't touch the food - but the red sticky stuff is drained. Morbid, I know. I have a sick mind.
I think someone mentioned this, but there is a sign outside the hospital room where Bella was sitting with Tyler that says "sleep disorders."
When Bella is googling, one of the links references "big bad wolf," which reminded me of that one Jacob quote. I also see the words "heathcliff" which reminds me of all the Wuthering Heights references, and "Midnight" which reminds me of MS.
Outside on the sunny day when the Cullens "ditched," Bella is eating an apple. She has definitely submit to temptation by this point.
Kinda bugs me that Jacob hands Billy the fish fry bags, and then Billy hands them back in a minute because Charlie gives him the "Vitamin R."
What is it that Edward says to Bella as soon as they are going up the stairs - before she mentions the graduation caps? I cannot make out those words.
I also LOVE the way Esme sometimes gets distracted by how cute she thinks Edward and Bella are - at the part where he brings her over. She keeps looking at his face and smiling.
