Those masks that are on the Cullens' wall right after Edward introduces Bella to his fam - they look like tribal masks - but there is one row that is full of some kind of creature with sharp teeth. Are they werewolves? Are they creatures from vampire legends?

The morning Bella arrives at school without Edward, why doesn't she have a backpack?

In the scene right after Edward spends the night, they show a shot of the house. I think Emmett's jeep is parked outside Charlie's house.


For Billy driving, it was a big and so obvious mistake. :shock:

For Emmett's jeep : it's the scene where Edward meets Charlie for the first time. He's waiting outside when Bella tells Charlie she's dating with Edward Cullen. After that, they go to the baseball game. That's why Emmett's jeep is parked outside Charlie's house.


Ummm... you know that you can convert cars to drive for people who are disabled, right?
I always imagined this as an extension of why Billy sells his old truck to Charlie - that he's getting a new one, fitted so he can drive it after his accident left him in a wheelchair.

Anyway, my real reason for posting on this thread was to ask: you know the scene where Edward drives Bella to school and he's wearing shades - do you think Rob had to wear those because his eyes were extra sensitive to the lenses that day?
It just seems a very random wardrobe choice for Forks - especially since it's meant to look like they never step into the sun.


In that scene, it was quite sunny-ish, but not enough to make Eddie all shiny, so um, he was just tryna fit in with all the other kids by wearing sunglasses? Lol. Just a guess.


Yeah, it was odd - the weather was sunny-ish but no one else was wearing shades which just made the whole "vampire in the sun" stick out to me... I figured it had to be something else, like Robs contacts were really irritating him that day, lol!

Well yes...I haven't been living under a rock my whole life. I was more referring to the fact that Billy doesn't drive in the books. I figured it was kind of to accentuate the way that he felt helpless sometimes - he never transformed the way his father and son did, because the vampires were gone during that time in his life. I thought it was an important part of his character description.

Well that's a creative idea, and it makes sense. It's just assumption though, because there's no proof anywhere. It's as good a theory as any.

Lol, ok *phew* some people in other forums/threads were seriously not aware of that - it actually bothers me that Billy doesn't drive in the books, but I guess SM decided they couldn't afford the specialized vehicle *shrug* :)

I don't think Charlie would have tolerated that. And I'm probably wrong, but wasn't there a steering wheel in front of Billy? I was surprised that Billy didn't veer off the road or anything, that glare lasted for a very long time.

Haha, yeah - it really did *GLARES*
I always wondered, that although Billy wasn't a werewolf - because it hadn't happened to long before Sam - whether he would have healed if he did become one (like Jacob after the fight in Eclipse) and also, if Leah's human form would become fertile now if she stopped phasing... I'm obviously over thinking :?

I'm not sure I understand the first part of your question. Would Billy's legs heal if he were a werewolf? I don't know if they ever addressed the transformation healing past injuries - but it did make them all stronger physically. Not sure about paralysis - it doesn't seem the same as venom.

As for Leah, Jacob thought she would become fertile if she stopped phasing - she was skeptical. That was never resolved either. But I am with Jacob - I think if they start aging again at some point and their bodies change normally, that she would be able to have children.

Maybe they just thought it made him look adorably cute/fine/sexy/hot/handome. Well...it did. :]

Well, that's a given! ;)

And I JUST noticed something, which I think is crazy cool - when Bella first goes to the Cullen's house, there's a chess set on the table in the background...
This made me laugh at first because it's mentioned a lot that Alice and Edward as well as Jasper and Emmett play the game, but I only JUST noticed that it isn't the usual black and white set but white and RED!
Please tell me you get this :D
