We're counting down your favorite 'Twilight Saga' moments before Rob, Kristen and Taylor join us live Thursday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV!

All week long, MTV News has been counting down your favorite "Twilight" moments in anticipation of our can't-miss "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" event, featuring a never-before-seen clip from the series' fourth installment and an exclusive Q&A with stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
So far, we've revisited Robert and Taylor's awkward heart-to-heart during the frigid "Eclipse" tent scene (moment #5) and Jacob's first ab reveal in "New Moon" (moment #4). And while the snippets have focused squarely on Lautner and Pattinson, Stewart finally gets in on the action with today's #3 fan-favorite moment: the "Eclipse" leg hitch.
To be sure, it was a detail many fans feared wouldn't find its way from Stephenie Meyer's novel to the 2010 big-screen adaptation, but director David Slade did right by Twilighters, including the small-yet-telling gesture in the steamy scene. As Edward shows off the new bed he purchased to Bella, the two decide to break it in with a hot-and-heavy make-out session, during which Edward — in a moment very uncharacteristic of the cautious vampire — hitches Bella's leg around his hip. And while the simple action left a big impression on Twilighters, Pattinson later admitted to MTV News that he didn't even remember filming the now-iconic scene.
"I remember seeing that scene and thinking, 'I don't remember doing that,' " Pattinson recalled. "That's a little saucy. That's a little bit raunchy for a 'Twilight' movie."
Be sure to tune in to "MTV First: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," which kicks off Thursday, November 3, on MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET, followed by a Q&A with Kristen, Rob and Taylor on MTV.com!Related Videos
