Did movie Edward say "I love you" to Bella? Contemplating the romance of New Moon...

In the book, "Twilight", Edward tells Bella he loves her. Though a forthcoming declaration of love was omitted from the movie, speculation is circling the net that during the garage scene, Edward whispers "I love you" to Bella before Alice and Jasper whisk her off and away from nomad vampire, James. Look at about 2:01... does it look like he whispers "I love you" to her?

Amanda from the Twilight Examiner ponders the glaring omission of Edward/Bella's exchange, and looks towards New Moon with a burning question: Will Edward propose to Bella?

She writes: In New Moon, Edward's proposal to Bella takes place shortly after Bella explains to Edward that, of all the things she could want in the world, she would want him to be the one to bring her to "the change." The conversation, though beginning as a fairly casual one, becomes serious in the span of a moment.

While Catherine Hardwicke did not forget to incorporate that element of the Twilight saga (that is, the sudden shifts from light chatter into deep conversation between Edward and Bella) into Twilight (and, some contend, perhaps too much so), the fact that there were no three word exchanges makes it even more difficult for The Twilight Saga: New Moon to adequately present a faithful translation of the book to film.

Ack. Now I have new "New Moon" anxieties. I suppose it's the control freak in me.
