There are so many humorous quotes from this chapter. The "zingers" keep coming. Which is your favorite from chapter nine and why?
There are so many good ones, but two fav's of mine are: From Edward "I can't be sure, of course, bit I'd compare it to living on tofu and soy milk; ..." Each of these are fine once in a while, but I would hate to HAVE to live on them. And, from Bella, "Your eyes. I told you I have a theory. I've noticed that people -men in particular- are crabbier when they're hungry."

Do you think Bella is starting to regret that she flirted with Jacob in order to get information from him?
I do not believe Bella regrets flirting with Jacob. She may be a little embarassed by it.

Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?
It doesn't matter to Bella if Edward is not human, a vampire, or anything else for that matter. Fate has taken over and she just wants to be with him.
Bella is on the verge of tears once and then finally does cry a second time. What emotion do you think is largely responsible for her tears givien that we know she only usually cries when she is angry.
I think Bella is sad, but also very frustrated that Edward admits he can not stay away from her, but continues to try to say good bye.
The chapter ends with the famous "three things" quote. What exactly do you think was the point where Bella fell "unconditionally and irrevocably in love" with Edward?
Bella was intrigued by Edward from the beginning, seeing him in the cafeteria. I believe she feel in love that night in Port Angeles when are guards were down and they were being open and honest with one another.

"I hear voices in my head and you think you're the freak?"

This was pretty funny when I read it!

A little bit because she doesn't want Edward to think of her as that kind of girl (since he may think she is only flirting with him to get stuff from him).

Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?

She is in love with Edward and sometimes love makes you blind to what you should be afraid of or not care for things that matter.

Bella is on the verge of tears once and then finally does cry a second time. What emotion do you think is largely responsible for her tears given that we know she only usually cries when she is angry.

I think she was mad at herself for falling in love with Edward especially now that she knows what he is.

I think on the ride home when they were talking about what he was and what he could do. I believe she knew then especially in light of the fact that it didn't bother her that he was a vampire.

I love this chapter for the 'zingers' and the last paragraph said when Bella realises three things
"About three things I was absolutely positive.
First Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him-and I didn't know how potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him."

that she loves him without a doubt.

My favorite is all the questions and answers. It is truely funny to read

Ya she is regretting it because he think she like him

Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?

She loves him for who he is and it doesn't matter what he is. It is the inside that counts

She angry. She only cries when she is angry with herself

I thought the point was when she talking to him in the car.

1. There are so many humorous quotes from this chapter. The "zingers" keep coming. Which is your favorite from chapter nine and why?
"I hear voices in my head and you think you're the freak?" There are so many more that are just classic.

2. Do you think Bella is starting to regret that she flirted with Jacob in order to get information from him?
I think so; I think she's scared that Edward might do something to him or he might get into trouble. I think she was also embarrassed to have to tell Edward that.

3. Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?
Because at this point she has fallen in love with him. There's no going back; you can't just turn off your feelings and pretend there isn't something deeper than attraction brewing in that car.

4. Bella is on the verge of tears once and then finally does cry a second time. What emotion do you think is largely responsible for her tears givien that we know she only usually cries when she is angry.
Frustration and rejection. You're mad because he's not even trying to give it a chance and you're embarrassed because you've just poored your heart out to this God and he's telling you it's impossible even though deep down you know he feels the same way.

5. The chapter ends with the famous "three things" quote. What exactly do you think was the point where Bella fell "unconditionally and irrevocably in love" with Edward?
I think it was in Port Angeles once he rescued her. It just built up over dinner and then when he was so honest with her in the car.

"Kryptonite doesn't bother me, either."

Do you think Bella is starting to regret that she flirted with Jacob in order to get information from him?
I think she kind of regretted it from the start.

Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?
Because she would do anything to be able to be near him, even if it means that she has to potentially endanger herself, although she has trouble seeing the danger. She doesn't understand it yet, but she is attached to him, and she can't get away.

Probably anger and confusion....?

I think she was immediately intrigued by him, but I think she was really in love with him when he saved her... the second time. That has got to be a turning point in their relationship.

I don't have the book on me now, but I'd have to say some of Bella's theories just make me laugh. No, Bella, Edward didn't go all Batman on us.

Do you think Bella is starting to regret that she flirted with Jacob in order to get information from him?
I think there's a little regret floating around because she's afraid it's going to ruin Edward's impression of her, but otherwise she got what she needed to know from him, so all in all it was successful.

Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?
That Edward is a monster, that he could and might kill her then and there, and that there are a bunch of vampires lurking around Forks. It doesn't seem to bother her that death could be so close for her.

Bella is on the verge of tears once and then finally does cry a second time. What emotion do you think is largely responsible for her tears givien that we know she only usually cries when she is angry.
She's probably really confused, and frustrated.

Now that they share such a dark secret, I think Bella feels tied to Edward. Before, it was just that he was good looking and mysterious and protecting her. Now it's more, it's gotten emotional for her.

i think she feels bad that it made it seem liked she liked Jacob and she didn't want to give him the wring impression.

i think that she doesn't care what Edward is because love is love you can't control it and if it really is love then it wouldn't matter.

I don't have my book on me, but i am sure that there are many.

I am really not sure.

Much of the chapter centers around the phrase, "it doesn't matter". Why exactly doesn't it matter to Bella?
Because she loves him. And it doesn't matter what he is what he does etc.

I don't think it has to do with anger. But maybe rejection she was feeling.

That she was madely deeply in love with him.
