Our top ten favorite moments in Twilight, the movie

Dear LTT/LTR-ers and Twihards, lovers and haters of this site,

Today is another big day in the life of us here at LTT. Yes, you might have guessed it but today marks our TEN MONTH anniversary. Now not to get all high school relationship on you but we think blogging solid for ten months is a big deal. Countless hours, love, conversations, text messages, good ideas, really bad ideas (trust me, there are tons), blood sweat and tears have gone into these ten months so UC and I want to celebrate this week. In honor of our ten month anniversary we are going to be bringing you a new top ten list every day this week to celebrate and look towards the next ten!

So to kick off our top tens I’m gonna start us off with Top Ten Favorite Twilight Movie Moments! All the little things, the good and the sometimes cheesy things that we loved and couldn’t imagine living without. All the moments that we wanted to see make it in, the ones we didn’t know and the ones that made us fall in love with the story all over again… here they are

10. The Cullen’s enter the Cafeteria

The set up for the whole movie: who are those kids and why are they different and most importantly WHO IS THAT BOY? Why yes, it’s only the hottest boy to ever grace the United States public school system, that’s who. And he just happens to be a Vampire. Ok wait, she’ll learn that later… let’s not get ahead of ourselves now!

09. Animal Attack

Oh Carlisle you kill us with the delivery of that line coupled with the totally obvious stare down you give Edward. Yup, it was totally an animal that killed Buttcrack Santa and not some crazy psycho nomadic vampire that’s going to develop some weirdo fascination with Bella and stop at nothing to kill her. Yup, totes an animal.

Wanna find out what else made our top ten list of favorite Twilight Movie Moments? Follow the cut…

08. Edward Introduces Himself

Cause who else would barge into Biology class to lay it on the line with their new lab partner only to be greeted by a guy who sounds like he’s the weirdo foreign exchange student. Yea, Bella don’t worry about why he’s avoiding class, he’s just hoping the INS doesn’t deport him for his expired visa, not because you smell or are the crazy new girl.

07. Carlisle’s Entrance
In he walks, all confidence and smiles and bad white pancake makeup. Doesn’t matter though cause everytime that door swings open and Carlisle walks in, I inevitably hear: “Doctor Doctor, gimme the news, I gotta bad case of lovin’ you!” playing in my head. Oh Dr. Cullen, if lovin’ you is wrong we don’t want to be right.

06. “I have a date with Edward Cullen” / Charlie and the gun

Who wouldn’t want to utter those magic words: “I have a date with Edward Cullen?” Yea, we know he’s fictional but still. This moment is also classic Charlie and classic Dad! Isn’t it every Dad’s wildest dream to be cleaning a rifle, drinking beer (Vitamin R, holla!) when his daughter’s hot piece shows up to take her out on a date? Yup, pretty much! And Billy Burke nails it!

05. Bella Meets the Family

Another one of those scenes that is so spot-on from start to finish. From Emmett greeting Bella by waving the knife to Carlisle looking so excited to have a human in their house and performing something as normal as cooking for her. I’d have to say my favorite part is Edward’s reactions and total embarrassment in front of his family, I think we’ve all been there when introducing a significant other to our family and being totally and utterly embarrassed by them. The only thing that’s missing from this scene is when Carlisle says “Oh Rosalie, always busting my bowls” which apparently was left on the cutting room floor. What a shame!

04. Buttcrack Santa
Buttcrack Santa should probably be number one on our list based on just how much we talk about him, but at 5 he will stay.ย  What else can be said about this non-canon character that we haven’t already talked about in length? He’s the character upon which we learn how to make a kitty meow, upon which we learn that they love those little bottles and upon which this blog is built. We’re only sad he had to die because who else will we talk about in all the other movies? Hopefully Tequila Tomas makes it into the final cut.

03. Jasper and the bat / “Oh I think we can handle that”

Really, do we even need to say anything about this scene that hasn’t already been talked about in my post about Jackson and the bat and his delivery of that line in the sexy southern drawl? Nope, other than HOT DAAAYYYUUMM can they give Jasper a bat to uh, play with, in the background of New Moon?

02. The Kiss

He just wants to try one thing… hold very still. And with those words I don’t think any woman, in movie theaters around the world, moved a muscle.

01. Bella Italia – Port Angeles

From start to finish this sequence is pretty much everything it should be: swoon worthy/magnificent/delectable and heart breaking all at the same time. Right off the bat Anna and Christian nail the giggly high school girliness of Jessica and Angela being dazzled by Edward. Then we move to Bella and Edward’s revealing, funny, frustrating and somewhat sad conversation. Kristen and Rob kill this so hardcore, you can see pain and 2nd guessing going on in Edward as he finally decides to let go and let Bella in. And then these lines: “I don’t have the strength to stay away from you anymore… Then don’t” AH! I die. Everytime. And all to Rob singing “Never Think.” Perfection.

So there we have it, our first top ten for our ten month anniversary outta the way. What do you think? What were your favorite moments in the movie version of Twilight?

Still holding still,

PS Stay tuned all this week to see what other top ten’s we create!
PPS UC- today’s the day, ten months ago we had this crazy idea and here we are still doing it. Sometimes I really can’t believe it. But I can’t imagine doing it with anyone else. And that’s what she said! XO!

  • Jaybird

    What, no spider monkey?

    Love you girls!

    I love that you are celebrating a 10 month anniversary! I married my high school sweetie pie, so we have all kinds of anniversaries!

  • sft

    I don’t know what I’m going to do when I start work tomorrow and will not be able to be OCD about checking LTR/LTT first thing in the morning! I really don’t know how you or UC do it, not one but two posts a day, every day. Thank you!

    I know a lot of people, even some fans, make fun of this movie, but I seriously love it, even more for the ridiculous bits that are just cheesy and go against what Stephenie Meyer originally intended. Love it. Maybe even just a hair more than the books (shh…)

    You know how there’s always that one person you want to get to read Twilight but they just won’t and it kills you? Because this said person is like your BFF for life and she won’t grant you this simple request? After the first hundred denials, I got down to it and wrote her that I basically needed her to read the book because I just want her to watch this movie–because this movie has a scene that has the sexiest kiss I’ve ever seen and that’s what I was getting at. Then I added not to google “twilight kiss” or she’d ruin it for herself and that she had to promise me on something sacred she wouldnt. Guess what? I finally got her, all thanks to this movie.

  • I’m channeling my inner Rob today when I say–“Brilliant!”

    There isn’t a bad scene in the movie. Except when Edward flies back against Bella’s wall and says “STOP”…still sounds demonic and disembodied to me!

    My favorite scenes that I’d like to share…
    –The entrance of ERIC YORKIE. “Lunch date, shoulder to cry on, NEW *gay* best friend” too bad that made the cutting room floor as well. hehe.

    –“Complication” when Edward runs into Billy…

    –“WHY DON’T YOU PUT YOUR SEATBELT ON?” and Edward’s CRAZY gaze combined with an immortal sense of humor. Brills.

    –Jessica and Angela giggling about Edward…”So thoughtful..yeah, really thoughtful” because you know we were all giggling at this point.



    • Holly

      yes! the seatbelt part. love that!

    • themoonisdown

      LOVE complication!

  • Pinky

    Great post. It reminds me of the warm and fuzzies of Twilight because as of late I’ve been using it as a sleep aide. I fall asleep right after we “Meet the Cullens” and wake up to the ‘Kitty Meow’ song.

    My two favorite scenes are:

    The whole scene in his bedroom. Edward is all nervous showing her around and the dancing scene when he slides his hand around her waist, concentrating very hard and puckers his lips a little. Hot!

    Second favorite is when they enter school together as a couple and everyone’s gaping. Sigh.

    Congratulations on your 10 month anniversary!

    • sft

      I wish that the scene right after the kiss wasn’t just a montage. I would have loved to hear what the heck they were talking about before Bella falls asleep!

    • nearly22

      I use Twilight as a sleep aid too! I always fall asleep right after seeing Edward into the cafeteria.

      My love thinks its because I want to drive him nuts and am in love w/ Robward.

      That definetly is not the truth though. ; )

      The love doesn’t know that I stalk Rob’s beautiful mug or comment on a site like this when I am supposed to be doing mounds of homework.

      Don’t tell him!

  • Bobina

    Wow.. we have pretty much the same list.. I would have switched the kissing scene and then dinner scene though. (yes, I am 16 like that..(no, I am not really 16))

    Congrats on an awesome 10 months. I look forward to seeing what else you guys have in store!!!

  • Holly


    You pretty much nailed the top ten. One of my faves, though, is when Edward shows Bella his room. His smile right before he says “you shouldn’t have said that” melts me everytime. I’m totally watching the movie again tonight.


  • Bs

    congratulations guys!!
    you have put a lot of amazing work into a hilarious site!

  • Not even realizing it was so close to the 10 month anniversary I decided to watch Twilight yesterday. Of course my faves moments are your fave moments from above (b/c you just ‘get me’) and I had my own running commentary on Twitter which If I may say…was brillz! Anyhoo it made me think about the time at ComiCon where we annoyed people w/ our commentary during the movie and how I can’t wait to do that during the New Moon Premiere(totes don’t mean the midnight one on Thursday I mean the 10 am one on Friday bc that would just be rude!). Will.Be.Epic. Anyways thanks for the last 10 mos! I look forward to the next 10 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • themoonisdown

      awwwww vicky!!!! yea we ruled that rocky horror picture show style!

  • samrosey

    PS. Happy 10 month Anniversairy! <3

    I am in love with the clip when Edward takes Bella to meet the rest of the Cullens.
    So many little smiles and smirks coming from … Robward? is that what we call him?
    *i'm new, be nice* haha

  • Bellasnemisis

    Happy Anniversary, everyone!! I’m raising a glass to another happy and healthy 10 months and more.

    UC and Moon – I thank you thank you thank you for all your hard work and dedication. Your sites truly make my world a happier place. Truly, they do.

  • Christa64c

    This weekend I introduced two twi-virgins to our wonderful little world. I got to re-live my favorite scenes through fresh eyes. They are as follows:
    -The rock clutch. (those fingers. AHHHH)
    -The Emmett & Edward “bump”. More specifically, Rob’s hand gesture and accompanying smirk.
    -The “Jackson sure can handle his bat” scene.
    -The neck kiss. Rob has the most adorable freckle on his neck. Totally lickable!!
    -The bedroom dream scene. Was he there or wasn’t he. (He was)
    -The KISS. In the theater I stopped breathing. My friend had to smack me to re-start my heart. To this day I still hold my breath everytime that scene comes on.
    -Edwards’s bedroom. “Yeah, this is my room” Awkward!
    -The restaurant scene. “Money, sex, money, sex, cat” Rob looks especially yummy in that light.

    Happy Anniversary UC & JAG!! You guys are awesome!

    • lvk1978

      That kissing scene had to have been one of the hottest things I’ve ever seen AND they both had a ridonkulous amount of clothing on! It’s what you don’t see but have to imagine that gets the old heart (and various other parts of the anatomy) pumping.

      I remember my daughter and I walking out of the theater that night and that’s all we could talk about! The last thing my daughter said to me as she got in her car, “Mom, I can see why you love him and I think I’m in love with him, too.” What??!!!?! Y’all weren’t already in love with Rob *before* the premiere?!?!?

      Mazel tov on a brill 10 months! UC and Moon rock and rule the RobWorld!

      I am normal. I am normal. I am normal. I am normal.

  • Happy 10 months, ladies! Thank you for cranking out serious hilarity every day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    <3 your list. The other top moments for me: "You can Google it" etc on the field trip and the dancing under the gazebo (love that suit on Rob!).

  • MidnightSin

    Also wanted to add that my heart flip/flops every time I see Edward looking so distraught after kissing Bella, leaning against the wall and she says “Don’t leave” ! Kudo’s to the lighting peps…he looks gorgeous in that shot!!! Ok..confession, just finished watching the movie AGAIN..couldn’t stop myself after the clips!!!

    Can’t wait to see what you have planned for the rest of the week!!! What a great start!!!

  • All of you lovely ladies ten but I would add in the “Sex…Money…Sex…Cat” line also. It’s kind of amazing.
    Oh yeah and can we add the commentary top ten?
    There’s def. some great moments in there.

  • mercurialmary

    Love the Jacksper bat scene – new meaning to the phrase vampire bat!

    Thanks for not putting the meadow scene in the top 10 – Rob’s legs look like he was struck by a car.

    • lvk1978

      It looks like the meadow scene is almost universally reviled BUT that profile shot of Rob is surely (and don’t call me that) one of the most beautiful things that I have ever seen in my life. Sweet Jesus, take me now ‘cuz I have seen Heaven on Earth!

      Gah, just Gah! :-P~~~~ <==== lvk1978 drooling

  • Trysh

    Love the list!!! It makes me want to watch it again.

    I totally have to agree with Holly with Edward & Bella in his bedroom and his smile right before he says โ€œyou shouldnโ€™t have said thatโ€. I think I hit pause, rewind and play 10 times during that scene.

  • lapushbaby

    Happy Anniversary!!!

    As you know, I LOVE ‘Animal Attack’. That is one brilliantly delivered line. I love all these scenes, too, you nailed it.

    There is one other tiny line I enjoy, by Gasian Eric Yorkie.

    ‘It’s La Push, baby. Laaaaaaaaaaaaa Puuuuuuuuuuuuush.”

    Just brill.

    Love you all, left you kisses over on LTR, here are some more:


    • themoonisdown

      ok ok i’ll go if you stop saying that

  • Congrats on 10 months guys, you are awesome!!!
    Umm, your list is pretty much win, but what about the scene where Edward backs Bella against the boulder things and has his hands on either side of her. That part is equal in hotness to the kiss scene for me, brief as it is.

    Can’t forget, “How you likin da rain girl!”

  • blvr

    So timely, ladies, so timely! I just today went to Target and bought the 3 disc set after reading about it on here for so long. So what if this is the only movie I have two copies of, I can wear out the first one now!

    You got all of my faves on this list, I would add only that scene where he backs her into that rock with his arms, so hot! Plus, for non-bella/edward action..

    • blvr

      Sorry, keyboard epic fail…the rest of that post was to say that anytime charlie and billy black were together, it was great. Those two have great comedic timing.

  • Ang

    Congrats on 10 months! And THANK YOU both for keeping us so entertained. I love your top 10 picks. I might would add the final scene dancing in the gazebo. Edward is hot (duh), and the whole scene is so overwhelmingly romantic. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE when we meet the Cullens in the cafeteria for the first time. My heart flutters everytime I see Edward walk in the door!

  • SaritaPagita

    I just rewatched the movie this weekend, so it’s fresh in my head. I took a 2 week break btwn viewings because it didn’t have that fresh feeling anymore (that’s normal? that’s what she said? ew?)

    Anywhoodiddleydoo – you left out the prom scene where they are dancing in the gazebo. I love that part – it’s sweet, romantic and foreshadows the goodness to come.

    Happy Anniversary ladies. Can’t wait for another 10 months of spit shit through my nose while trying to act like I’m not laughing at work goodness! <3 u both.

  • Buttcrack Santa made the list! This makes me very happy ๐Ÿ™‚

    for me, I adore the “meet the cullens” scene when Emmett waves with the knife/ all of rob’s well acted awkwardness. Also the cafeteria scene (I gasped so loud when Robward entered, my boyfriend had to shrink down in his seat) and the raybans, god the raybans. And the only other scenes i would add are Anna kendrick’s (she steals every scene she’s in) and the end gazebo scene. Swoon.

  • NotWutheringHeights

    Happy Anniversary gals.

    Am I the only one that liked the spider monkey (the comment NOT the awkward tree climbing that followed)?

    All the great stuff has already been listed but some of my fave moments are…

    “I could always make you”.
    “You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you”.
    The piano scene.
    The kiss…. of course…. first one and final scene.
    “Your moodswings are giving me whiplash”.
    “Not the moats”.
    “Oh. My. God.”
    Him jumping on the roof of her truck.
    The restaurant scene to Rob’s beautiful song.
    And him staring at her while Mike asked her to prom. Drool!

    Glorious stuff!

    So jealous that you guys can get the 3 disc set in the US. We can’t. ๐Ÿ™

  • nutnads

    awesome! I’m totally agree with #2 & #1.

  • psychologist1

    Really nice film though i did not read the book (shame on me). i liked the film because it was an unusual story of love. vampires were not shown as cruel and cold. they were shown as creatures who can feel and love, who can walk during daytime. it was the first film about vampires actully where i did not find a lot of blood, slayers and murders!

  • katiebird

    Happy Anniversary ladies!! Your website/blog has been the highlight of most of my days!! Even my husband thinks that you are funny!!
    I just read thru most of the comments, and couldn’t help myself, to give two of my favorites that I don’t think were mentioned already. Most of them involve Rob being in them, of course.
    – Edward leaning against his car, the morning that he offers her a ride to school. So hot!!
    -Their arrival at school, when he opens the door for Bella. She notices everyone looking at them. His response is brilliant. “Not that guy. He just looked.” His smile is intoxicating…
    -Billy Burke scenes are also fantastic. Charlie circles his head to form a “halo”, when Bella asks him to be nice to Edward. So brilliant!!
    Two scenes that took my breathe away, but were mentioned already.
    -Edward playing the piano for Bella. Even KStew’s facial expressions were good, mouth hanging open. She probably thought, “Michael who?” Priceless..
    -The kissing scene. I remember holding my breathe, and looking at my husband, and not realizing that I was talking out loud, whispered. OMG.

    You guys are the best!!


  • Beth

    I suggest watching your favorite Edward scenes frame by frame or in slo-mo on your DVD. It’s marvelous. When he gets her out of the car that first day he drives her, the smile on his face flashes so fast….but if you watch it in slo-mo, it’s totally awesome.

  • Calliope

    Edward didn’t like the music of the 60s and 70s because it was all about Sex and Drugs ….. you can’t understand what you ain’t gettin.

    • Calliope

      bahaha. i am an idiot. i think i meant to post this comment somewhere else. ignore. ignore. ignore.

  • whatever

    “He just wants to try one thing..hold very still, and with those words, I don’t think any woman on movie theaters around the world, moved a muscle!”

    Holy crap, you definitely got that one right!

    UC and MOon you guys crack me up. This list was brilliant and congrats on your 9 month anniversary.

    Epic line: Mike: You’re aliiiiivee!

  • litl_ving

    I know I’m a little late with my comment, but need to say it ๐Ÿ™‚ “out load” :))))
    I loved the end – when Edward kisses Bell’s neck.. I hadn’t read the book before I watch the movie, so I didin’t know what would happen.. and it was strong

  • JenLouise0201

    Oh this was freakin’ hilarious! Totally agree with every one of your choices. Especially the comment about Carlisle. I just had surgary yesterday and it hurt so bad to laugh, but I couldn’t help it! This is my first visit to your blog and you already have me in hysterics. You guys are a blast!

  • Nicolette

    oooh… that scene almost makes me Team Jasper. Soooo hot.

  • aubrey

    i love all of these!!! and polly my fav scene-well on of themm ;] -is the one at the end! at prom wit edward and bella it is amazing! u can soo feel the chemistry between them and i loveeeee the kiss! ๐Ÿ™‚
