Anything Ian says really.

I really love the bit at the end where they both think that they were both adjusting to the change when they were really just trying to give the other one time to adjust.

Also the bit where Ian realizes what Wanda is going to do and takes her away and has that talk with her that's so cute and i love it.
"No one's ever loved anyone as much as I love you"
"You're almost right" ... "I know of just one exception"

So many quotes, so little time! Obviously, everything Ian ever said, and my personal favorites:

Jeb: " After all I´ve seen, if I hadn´t learned compassion, I wouldn´t be worth much."
I like it because It shows how much Jeb has been through, and how he came to be who he is.

Ian: :lol: "No one´s ever sorry for hitting Kyle." :lol:
I found this quote simply hilarious. I love it.

Ian: "I felt guilty - guilty as hell - watching her flinch away from us. Seeing the black marks on her neck."
I like it because it shows that Ian is really starting to think of Wanda as a person, not just a waste of space.

Melanie: "Jared makes everything safe, everything happy. Even houses."
This quote makes me smile. It makes me think of how in the middle of such a mess there can still be happiness. Its quite inspiring.

Jared: "I love you. Even if you´re not there, if you can´t hear me. I love you."
Ah, the hopeless romantic. I love it.

Melanie: "Of all the nerve! Tell him I said no chance in HELL!!! I do NOT like this man."
I thought this was SO funny. I laughed a lot when I read it.

Wanda: "I realized, when he smiled then, that I wanted him to like me. The rest - the hand on my face, the fingers on his arm - I still wasn´t sure about all those. But I wanted him to like me, and to think kind things about me."
Its kind of the beginning of the whole Ian-Wanda thing. She knows she likes him enough to want him to like her back. Kinda reminds me of third grade. LOL

Ian: "Melanie is a very pretty girl. Beautiful, even. In spite of what I´ve done to her face."
It shows the regret Ian feels about having abused of them like that. He´s becoming more and more... humane, I guess you could say.

Ian: "Its not the face, its the expressions on it. Its not the voice but what you say. Its not the body, its the things you do with it. YOU are beautiful. You yourself are."
Ah, I love it. Its so deep. Im not really into the whole 'that's deep man' thing, but youve got to admit it, its inspiring.

Jamie: "You want anything Ian?"
Ian: "Sure. I want you to go tell Jared he´s shameless."
I laughed so hard at this one. I love it, and I love Ian.

Wanda: "No, Ian. Really KISS me. Like... like you´re TRYING to get slapped."
LOL. thats all I have to say.

Ian. "I could sleep with you... Oh, calm down, Melanie, you know what I meant."
Um... no comment. Just LOL

Ian: If she goes, I´m going too. SOMEONE has to protct her from herself."
Kyle: "And I´ll be there to protect us from HER."
Jared. "And I´ll be there to bring you all back alive."
I like it. They sound like a big happy family. Its awesome.

Ian: "You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me." MY FAVORITE QUOTE OF ALL TIMES. NOT JUST THE HOST.


Mel: "You never know how much time you´ll have."
I cried so hard, because, from experience, I know it's true.

Wanda: "And then he kissed me in the most unplatonic way possible under the given circumstances, and I was thrilled to remember that I´d been smart enough to lie about my age."
Heeheehee.... heehee. hee. LOL You must think Im a perv.

Kyle: "Ian, got anything to say to me?
Ian: "Nope"
Kyle: "I keep waiting for an apology"
Ian: "Keep waiting."
When I read the "i keep waiting for an apology" part, I stopped for a moment in my mind, and before reading what Ian said next, I said to my self, 'keep waiting Kyle.' It was so awesome!

Wanda: "But I LOVE her Ian."
Ian: "But I love YOU. Doesn't that matter?"
I cried. I could just picture Ian looking up into her eyes and saying it. **swoons**

"It´s not the face, but the expressions on it. It´s not the voice,but what you say. It´s not how you look in that body, it´s the things you do with it. You are beautiful."

I don´t remember this next one perfectly, but here´s what I remember: "Melany is a very pretty girl. Beautiful even. In spite of what I´ve done to her face." Ilike this one because it shows that Ian really feels guilty about hurting her/them.

"No one is ever sorry for hitting Kyle."

"And then he kissedme in the most unplatonic way possible" (Or something like that)


Those are some of the best ones in the Host I totally agree!! :D

My House, My Rules.

I've known folks like Jeb. They just lay it on the line and tell you just how it is. PERIOD.
It's a lot like Emmett in Twilight. He means what he says.
