Where the Spider Monkey line came from...

If you are like me, you have always wondered where the line came from when Edward is climbing the tree outside his house with Bella on his back and he says "You better hold on tight spider monkey." (Because it was not in the book) Well as Twilight Lexicon reports, it was Catherine Hardwick who came up with it.

“I woke up in the middle of the night. I thought, ‘They’re going to be climbing that tree, and they’re not going to have anything to say. It’s just going to be another scene of them looking into each other’s eyes.’ ”
Unfortunately, the Writers’ Strike had begun, and “Twilight” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was no longer available to provide dialogue. “So I typed up, like, 10 ideas,” Hardwicke recalled. “And thought, “OK, maybe they could say this …’ “

Here were some of the alternatives:

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 ...
