Rob Hand-Picked 'Spider Monkey' Line

MTV has a new article about Robward's famous spider monkey line. Excerpt:
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 "Twilight" world.

"You'd better hold on tight, spider monkey."

And while an actual spider monkey 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.

There's some stuff in here like ... well, like the 'Hold on
tight, spider monkey' line," laughed Hardwicke last week when we visited her house to see the fabled rooms where she held her "Twilight" casting sessions. In the kitchen's glass case, she showed us a dog-eared copy of her shooting script — with the "spider monkey" line scribbled into a margin.

Option 1:
Edward: You're not scared of heights, are you?
Bella: Not that I know of ...

Option 2:
Edward: Hold on tight ...
Bella: Don't worry ...

Option 3:
Edward: Wrap your legs around me like a spider monkey.
Bella: Done.

Option 4:
Edward: Got a good grip? Don't let go.
Bella: No chance of that, buddy.

Option 5
Edward: Prepare for liftoff ...
Well, if you ask me, I agree with Rob, "You'd better hold on tight, spider monkey" was definitely the best line. And I love that line by the way!
