How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

[Jacob to Bella:] "So, you see," Jacob continued, "the cold ones are traditionally our enemies. But this pack that came to our territory during my great-grandfather's time was different. They didn't hunt the way others of their kind did – they weren't supposed to be dangerous to the tribe. So my great-grandfather made a truce with them. If they would promise to stay off our lands, we wouldn't expose them to the pale-faces." (6.118)

This Quileute legend of a peace treaty between werewolves and vampires has been passed down through the generations. Jacob believes it's just a scary story. He doesn't seem to have any clue that supernatural beings truly do exist in Forks.

Quote #5

[Jacob to Bella:] "No." He paused dramatically. "These are the same ones." (6.124)

Bella learns the Cullen family didn't descend from the vampires that formed a treaty with the Quileutes generations ago – supposedly they are the same vampires. Jacob clearly thinks this is just a scary, superstitious story, but Bella is taking it a bit more seriously.

Quote #6

My subconscious had dredged up exactly the images I'd been trying so desperately to avoid. I was going to have to face them now. (7.22)

Bella is going to have to face what her subconscious has already told her about Edward.
