One 'New Moon' film tagline revealed, website updates examined

The official website for The Twilight Saga: New Moon was officially launched today, and it was, in the words of Laurent, "mouth watering."P
Firstly, we got to see a lot of rather beautiful stills placed sporadically throughout the website (see below for screenshots). We also got to enter the homes of both the Cullen coven and the La Push gang - complete with sound bite quotes from both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner (as Edward Cullen and Jacob Black respectively).

One of the features not discussed here yet has been the biographical information contained in the home tours offered by the updated site.
Though the Volturi are yet to be pictured (which leaves us eagerly curious, of course), many of the main characters from the film were - complete with quotes from them as well.

In the Cullen House, we see Dr. Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli), Esme Cullen (Elizabeth Reaser), Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), Rosalie Hale (Nikki Reed), Alice Cullen (Ashley Greene), Jasper Hale (Jackson Rathbone), Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), and Emmett Cullen (Kellan Lutz).

In the La Push reservation, we see Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), Embry Call (Kiowa Gordon), Sam Uley (Chaske Spencer), Jared (Bronson Pelletier), Paul (Alex Meraz), and Bella (Kristen Stewart) again.

The presence of Bella in both places evidences and echoes the dichotomy we discussed that is to be expected in New Moon.
Also interesting about the two locations is the quotes that each character is marked with in their biographical information. Many of them contain quotes that you all chose as your favorites (see here, for instance).

Here are the quotes that are offered by the site for these characters.
Dr. Carlisle Cullen - "Imagine the situation in reverse. If you believed you would be destroying Edward's soul ... would you do it?"
Bella - "It never made sense for you to love me. I always knew that."
Alice - "How strongly are you opposed to grand theft auto?"
Jasper - "It'll be a relief not to want to kill you."
Esme - "I already think of you as part of the family."
Rosalie - "I wish there had been someone there to vote no for me."
Emmett - "The hell you will. I'm not missing another fight."
Edward - "What choice have I?" I cannot be without you, but I will not destroy your soul."
Jacob - "I'm so sorry that I can't be the right kind of monster for you, Bella."
Embry - "Well, the wolf's out of the bag now."
Sam - "Jake's right. You are good with weird."
Paul - "I'm sure the leech-lover is just dying to help us out!"
Jared - "The chick runs with vampires."

Nice, huh?

Another bit of very exciting news has been revealed as well. A poster from Singapore was released that contains a tagline for the film. It is not the official U.S. tagline for the film, but it is an official tagline for the Singapore region. It reads, "What do you do ... when the one thing you live for leaves you?"

When we talked about what the tagline for the film might look like, a lot of the suggestions were a variation of this particular sentiment, so what do you think of it now? Though this isn't the U.S. poster tagline, it's still a really interesting one to see right? Comment below with your thoughts on the tagline and the quotes included on the site. Think they've made the script?
