One of my favorites is: "If you're in there, Mel... I love you. Even if you're not there, if you can't here me. I love you." -Jared

And I also like the "I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful," quote a lot more now that I'm rereading the book because when Ian is first telling Wanda that he likes her she says something like "If you could hold my true form in your hand you would be disgusted and drop me to the floor and step on me," and I didn't remember that last time. So it just makes it all the more sweeter knowing that he was proving her wrong. I thought he just said it for the hell of it- to make her feel good (still meaning it, of course) ^.^

This is a little off-topic, and I will post my favorite quotes sometime, but what does platonic/unplatonic mean? It's driving me crazy not knowing!

Platonic means a close friendship, while unplatonic can mean either not at all friendly, or a romantic/sexual relationship. Here, it would mean the second definition.

I love it when Melanie says "I... felt something when [Jared] hit us," and Wanderer goes "Me too. He's got quite a backhand, doesn't he? "

My face was like: XD

I can't remember the exact quote, but Ian says something like:
'I'll sleep with you - Calm down Mel, you know what I mean'

And again, I can't remember the eaxct quote, but Wanda says something like:
'And also he's (Jamie) is probably a bit too young to see this'
After Jared has kissed her.

Many things made me tear up, and also some have made me laugh, but I can't remember the quotes.

"If you're in there, Mel... I love you. Even if you're not there, if you can't here me. I love you."

I LOVE THAT ONE!!

And I also liked "You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me."

Those gave me major chills. XD

That's one of my favorites!
Any time Jared tells Mel that he loves her while she's in Wanda's body gets to me.

These lines crack me up:
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 ;)

This one has made me actually laugh out loud all 3 times I read the book (just finished it for the 3rd time about an hour ago).

And for sure, when Ian says "I held you in my hand Wanderer, and you were so beautiful." Gets me every time!

I heart The Host.
