I think it was a touching scene- and something to show readers that the imprint situation doesn't automatically make the relationship a romantic one. It was just as Jacob said- as Claire grows, Quil's relationship with her will change as well. Right now he's like a nanny, or the best uncle. Later on, a best friend. Even later, someone to fall in love with. Even the way Jacob described Quil as having endless patience, playing peekaboo for an hour straight, or how Quil described Claire's third birthday party was quite touching.
And of course it helps that Claire is cute as a button. "Pity wock Qwil! Pity wock!"

Hmmm. Yes and no. I think Quil was just trying to make Jacob feel better, being a good friend and all. Jacob however is quite stubborn, though we can certainly understand why. Jacob hasn't given Bella up yet, and until he does, as he says, he just can't see anyone else.

In my opinion, the spirit of the treaty was that the Cullens couldn't bite anyone with the intent to kill/feed off them
. Everyone knew Bella's decision, even if they didn't agree with it (i.e., Jacob). So at this point, I sided with Sam: he had the cooler head, and was able to reason it out while Jacob was running on pure emotion.

I thought he would be shocked, then appalled, then murderously angry at Edward for what he did to her. Which is pretty much how he reacts in the book. Although I'm quite sure that, just like the Cullens, a pregnancy was the furthest thing from his mind when he thought about Bella being "sick."
