The Twilight Saga may have ended a long time ago, but it has recently gained more attention, especially online. Many people perceive the movies as comedies now, thanks to the abundance of hilarious scenes and lines delivered mostly by the main characters.
Though most of the “meant to be serious but are actually funny” quotes came from the first movie, there are some notable examples from the following installments in The Twilight Saga, all of which deserve attention, as they are true gems unfound elsewhere.
10“Bella: My Hands Are Freezing. Must Be Nice Never Getting Cold. / Jacob: It’s A Wolf Thing. / Bella: No, It’s A Jacob Thing, You Could Be Like Your Own Sun.” (The Twilight Saga: New Moon, 2009)
When Jacob decides to teach Bella how to drive a motorbike, the weather is not the most pleasant, to say the least. Naturally, Bella points this out as she is slowly starting to freeze.
Jacob, on the other hand, isn’t cold at all thanks to him being a werewolf. But even though Bella’s next remark is meant to be quite straightforward, it still sounds weird and even somewhat funny and corny.
9“Edward: I’m Designed To ƙ𝔦ℓℓ. / Bella: I Don’t Care. / Edward: I’ve ƙ𝔦ℓℓed People Before. / Bella: It Doesn’t Matter.” (Twilight, 2008)
One of the most famous scenes from the first movie in the saga is the one where Bella confronts Edward about his true nature yet another time, and Edward finally gives in and decides to tell her the truth.
But once he does, he warns her not to get close to him, as it is extremely dangerous. He warns her again and again, but Bella keeps saying she doesn’t care. Any sane person would probably run for their life, so watching Bella be so naive probably made most viewers either want to scream at her for being so stupid or to laugh at her astonishing lack of survival instincts.
8“Edward: [Frantically Trying To Revive Bella] Come Back To Me, Please, Baby.” (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, 2011)
The moment Bella got pregnant (which is supposedly impossible), everyone realized that it wasn’t going to end up well. Unsurprisingly, the birth of Renesmee was very difficult for Bella, who almost ɗ𝔦ᥱd during the process.
When Edward was trying to bring her back to life, he was obviously very worried. But the fact that he calls Bella “baby” in a moment like this just sounds out of place and funny in a twisted kind of way.
7“Bella: Are You Going To Tell Me How You Stopped The Van? / Edward: Yeah. Um… I Had An Adrenaline Rush. It’s Very Common. You Can Google It.” (Twilight, 2008)
Before Edward finally confessed to Bella who he really is, she had to nag him about it for a very long time. After all, she was very intrigued by the guy who had seemingly vacillating hot-and-cold feelings for her, yet saved her life.
One of the first times when she tries to get him to tell her the truth, he very seriously replies that it was an adrenaline rush. But even though Edward was trying to come up with a believable excuse, his response is nothing short of laughable.
6“Charlie: [Seeing Edward & Jake Close To Physically Fighting Each Other] Hey, Hey, Hey… Easy, Guys, Easy… Let’s Take It Down A Notch, Alright? What’s Going On? / Jacob: I Kissed Bella. And She Broke Her Hand. Punching My Face. It Was A Complete Misunderstanding.” (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 2010)
The scene where Jacob kisses Bella and she punches him in the face has been memed multiple times by this point. At that moment, her face was contorted while Jacob was aimlessly running around without a single idea of what he should do next.
But what is even more hilarious is the way Jacob tells Bella’s father Charlie about it while also almost getting into a fight with Edward. He clearly remembers the incident differently.
5“Edward: My Family, We’re Different From Others Of Our Kind. We Only Drink Animal Bl00d, But It’s Your Scent. It’s Like A ɗrʋġ To Me. It’s Like You’re My Own Personal Brand Of Heroin.” (Twilight, 2008)
Once Edward tells Bella about his true nature, he also dumps some exposition on her about his family and the world of vampires. Surprise – they are vampire vegetarians!
The only problem is that Edward wants to ƙ𝔦ℓℓ Bella because her bl00d or her scent is like a ɗrʋġ to him… like a personal brand of her0in. Isn’t that romantic? The audience probably had a good laugh at this point.
4“Jacob: [To Edward] Let’s Face It, I Am Hotter Than You.” (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 2010)
Bella is not the only one constantly pointing out the fact that Edward is extremely cold and Jacob is extremely hot. Jacob notices it too (and Edward is probably somewhat insecure about it).
Naturally, Jacob decides to use this to his advantage and tells Edward as much when they share a conversation while protecting Bella. She needs to be warmed up in the cold of the night, but Jacob clearly means that the temperature of his body is not the only way he is hotter than Edward.
3“[Edward Sparkling In The Sun] Edward: This Is What I Am. / Bella: It’s Like Diamonds.” (Twilight, 2008)
The moment Stephenie Meyer decided to make vampires sparkle in the sun was the moment they became the butt of the numerous jokes still floating around on the internet. It may look beautiful as an idea, but it definitely doesn’t work, especially on screen.
Thankfully, Bella does find it beautiful, “like diamonds.” For members of the audience with some sort of humor, this probably was yet another line to laugh at.
2“Jacob: Because It Was Her. From The Beginning, It Was Nessie Who Wanted Me There. / Bella: [Shouts Furiously] Nessie? You Nicknamed My Daughter After The Loch Ness Monster?” (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, 2012)
One thing many fans are adamant about is that the whole Jacob and Renesmee pairing is awkward and bad for the plot and the integrity of the story. Luckily, some hilarious interactions were borne out of this revelation.
For instance, when Bella is recovered after the birth of Renesmee and is already a vampire, she finds out that Jacob had imprinted on her daughter. And once Jacob opens his mouth, things all get worse. Bella’s outrage at the name he had given her daughter is justifiable, but it’s still hilarious to watch.
1“Bella: I Know What You Are. / Edward: Say It… Out Loud. Say It.” (Twilight, 2008)
The big revelation from the very first movie is one of the most important moments for the entire story of Bella and Edward. Incidentally, it is also the funniest scene in the saga.
There was a chance for it to be good, but the way Robert Pattinson delivers it just makes everything way funnier than it is supposed to be. He may be a great talent, but he definitely wasn’t at his highest here.
