Well, it looks like most of the best ones have already been mentioned. But these are some of my personal favorites that I don't think have been posted, unless I accidentally skipped it.

"Give me my hands!"
"I don't know how! Take them!" --pg. 330

"Ready to be humiliated Wanda? You may have taken the planet, but you're losing this game." --pg. 399

"I sat in the blackness of the big hole in the ground and grieved for lost souls with a human at my side." --pg. 416
Quite possibly my favorite. It just really grabbed me. It summarizes the souls vs. humans war, but compassion can still be shown.

I loved everything that came out of Ian's mouth! Especially the "You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me." But most of his lines have already been said.

Kyle- "What the hell, people? Favourite line in the whole book.

Oh, and I thought this was an "Edward moment"

Ian-"I truly love you, too, my Wanderer."
"The wasting of finite resources is everyone's business."
Even Edward Cullen cares about global warming.

IAN so has the best lines of this book but anything about Kyle just cracks me up! Kyle reminds me of Paul and Paul makes me laugh all the time.
"Bella." He turned the full force of his scorching golden eyes on me.
"What?" I muttered, distracted.
"Humor me." ~Twilight

I have to go for the obvious:

- "You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me."
- "I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful."

I also loved the conversations between Wanda and Mel. I really liked how they finally became friends, even "sisters".

Okay so my favorite line is actually the last three paragraphs of chapter 58, but that's because this is where I just start bawling.

""You are the noblest, purest creature I've ever met. The universe will be a darker place without you," he whispered.
These were his words over my grave, my epitaph, and I was glad that I got to hear them.
Thank you, Wanda. My sister. I will never forget you.
Be happy, Mel. Enjoy it all. Appreciate it for me.
I will,
she promised.
Bye, we thought together.
Doc's hand pressed the cloth gently over my face. I breathed in deeply, ignoring the thick uncomfortable scent. As I took another breath, I saw the three stars again. They were not calling to me; they were letting me go, leaving me to the black universe I had wandered for so many lifetimes. I drifted into the black, and it got brighter and brighter. It wasn't black at all- it was blue. Warm, vibrant, brilliant blue... I floated into it with no fear at all."

Stephanie Meyer can write so beautifully that I am sitting here, amazed and a little tearful again, as I read this.
*sigh* Where is my Edward?

This is my favorite part besides Ian's "I held you in my hands Wanderer....". Right around where Mel calls Wanda her sister I started tearing up (which is a big deal for me).

Great book =]

Like most other people, I really loved this line:

Ian: I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful.

Awwwwwwww..... I love Ian!!!

Another Ian line:

Ian: Is it so unbearable to have me love you? Is that it? I can keep my mouth shut, Wanda. I won't say it again. You can be with Jared, if that's what you want. Just stay.

SOBS!!! Doesn't anyone else think he sounds a little like Edward here??? (don't get me wrong, they are two very different characters, and I love them both.)

I also liked:

Melanie: You'll take the whole world away from him. Everything he wants.


Yeah... all my fav lines revolve around Ian :lol:
Ahoy! It's the Bloody Indy!
