MTV gave you a peek at the other lines that could have made it into the Twilight instead.
In the time since it was first revealed by MTV last year, it has gone on to become one of the most famous lines in the world.“You’d better hold on tight, spider monkey.”And while an actual isn’t nearly as cute as Kristen Stewart, the phrase has taken on a life of its own, inspiring MySpace pages T-shirts, and dozens of other fan tributes. Now, “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke is cluing fans in on the eight other lines that nearly became Robert Pattinson dialogue in that “spider monkey” scene.
“I gave it to Rob, the whole list,” she explained. “And I said, ‘Rob, which one do you want to say?’ And he goes, ‘I want to say the spider-monkey one.’ ”
Edward: You’re not scared of heights, are you?
Bella: Not that I know of …
Edward: Hold on tight …
Bella: Don’t worry …
Edward: Wrap your legs around me like a spider monkey.
Edward: Got a good grip? Don’t let go.
Bella: No chance of that, buddy.
Edward: Prepare for liftoff …
Reading over her unchosen chunks of dialogue, Hardwicke told us that she was glad Rob picked the now-immortal “spider monkey” line. “It’s a fun line,” she grinned. “Thank god he picked that one.”
