Is anyone else curious about what Phil is like? All we know is that he is a not-that-great baseball player who moves a lot, is maybe "too young" for Renee according to Bella, and is at least partially responsible for Bella's decision to move to Forks. (After all, she left so Renee could move freely with Phil.)

I know he probably wouldn't play a big role, but I'd be interested in seeing him in future books. The only thing that I can think of (that logically fits) is that either Victoria (yes, I have a soft spot for Victoria) or another red-eyed monster (someone who just can't stand the thought of a vampire being involved with a human) comes for Bella and is a little harder to capture, so (even though it's a heartwrenching thought) Bella goes back to Renee and Phil, who are preparing to move to another town, so the Cullens may have a little more time to plot Red-Eye's capture. That, or somehow the Cullens are (egasp!) caught in a sticky situation (maybe Jasper or someone else- I hate to pin it on Jasper, but it's the most logical choice- breaks down and kills a human, or someone gets caught in the sun) and have to leave and either move near where Phil is currently stationed (not likely, but still, maybe he goes somewhere relatively sunless) or Bella just moves in with Renee because she simply cannot stand being in Forks without Edward.

Looking back, those aren't so great. Maybe something grave happens to Bella in Forks and Phil comes with Renee when she leaves on the first flight to Washington. It would make such an awkward situation when Charlie and Phil run into each other. (Heh, I would kill to see that scene from Edward's point of view. I want to hear what they think!) Maybe Phil gets a job in Seattle. Maybe Bella vacations with Renee and Phil during the summer. (Hey, it's only fair, since she spent her previous summers with Charlie.)

Well, anyway. What do you all think?

(Yes, I have an obsession with extremely minor characters.)

In my opinion, Phil seems to be a pretty hands-off stepfather. I don't think he will really be pursued further in the books, and I do believe that his and Renee's relationship is going to be ended in the future. But it is funny to think that even though he has never had a line of dialogue or even been present in a scene, he is essentially the catalyst for Bella moving to Forks.

Mm...I don't know. Phil is just a little to young for me. I just think that whole relationship is weird! It would be nice to actually meet him...maybe he's not the guy I think he is...but, he's just never been one of my favorites. But, you never know...maybe he's the greatest guy ever!

(Although, that would be a funny scene if Charlie and Phil were together. Haha, maybe Renee and Phil will come to visit Charlie and Bella...and they have dinner! hehe *Imagines dinner with all four* hm...maybe we should add Edward to that picture: *Imagines Edward with them* haha, I can see Phil totally being jealous of Edward! ;)

I've always just been curious as to how young Phil really is? I mean...is he barely legal? :shock: We know that he gave Bella a Linkin Park CD...I don't want to say that this music doesn't appeal to a wide range of age groups...but lets be honest...the moyority of this fan base is 25 and under. Just how young this guy really is bugs me!

I have never really cared or disliked him...I am just thankfull that to some degree because of him and his marriage to Renee Bella decided to move to Forks.

I would't mind a little more details and insight on his character in New Moon, maybe even a meet with Charlie just to see how that would plan out...but I could live without it I guess.

Hmm...I agree.

It would be very cool to actually meet Phil because then we could actually see what he what he was like. I mean we've definatley heard what Bella thinks about him, but he always seems to be convinently out of the picture. I can't really judge him all that much until Bella has a converstation with him.

He must be rather young, since he does play minor league (or maybe he just doesn't play baseball very well) and listens to Linkin Park, I wonder how old he really is...........

Well duh! *boinks head* Thanks for this! Hehehehe...although I thought he as just a tad younger...I was going with 25. :oops:

He must really suck at baseball if he is in the minor leagues at 29... :?

I think Phil seems kind of boring =) He's not really mentioned at all, unless its in relation to Renee or Bella moving to Forks. I dont think he'll be in the other books very much, but who knows! Personally, I hope that he and Renee break up and she and Charlie get back together. I think that would just bring the whole thing together. But only if Bella and Edward stay together of course!

I'd actually like to meet Phil at least once in a future novel. It's only fair, haha.

Yeah I have to agree...I would at least like to meet the guy in the book once! Maybe Renee will be a drama queen and Bella will fly out to see her or something where the set could be staged for Phil to at least pop his head in.
:wink:
