Edward Flips Emmett the Bird

I swear I must have watched the Supermassive Whack-a-Mole Baseball scene on Youtube nine gazillion times when it first came out. Granted, this was immediately after the baseball scene became available on Youtube and long before I got my chubby little paws on a DVD. I'd be sitting at work, totally dorked out, with an ear bud shoved in one ear, squinting against the grainy, crappy picture trying to watch Jasper do his baseball bat acrobatics over and over again. My co-workers would occasionally sneak up and scare the bejeezus out of me, I would be so intent. Bastards.

Which is why I never noticed that Edward gives Emmett the American Salute. In fact, I had to see the damn movie in the theater three times before I noticed that Edward flips the bird. I was so excited to see something (finally!) remotely naughty that I damn near spewed all the SweeTarts I was shoveling into my gob all over STY, who was pissed that I distracted her from the aforementioned Jasper-baseball-acrobatics scene.


Did anyone else notice this? Am I really this blind that I somehow missed such a small, quick, yet significant gesture? Because, frankly, I'm just appalled that Edward would even think of doing something like giving Emmett the New Yorker's Hello. Well, not really. Personally, giving people the finger is like my own special way of saying 'howdy!'.

Oooh bad Edward (and bad closeup picture!)

I've been disgustingly busy at work and a tad bit neglectful on the Twitarded side of life but I did manage to take some pictures of the scene (with ML shaking his head in resignedly behind me). And, I promise you, they are every bit as grainy and bad as I remembered the Youtube videos being.

Anyway, that dastardly gesture shows up right after Emmett and Edward collide during the baseball scene. And I'm going to be SO embarrassed if everyone comments back, 'uh, duh, JJ. We all knew that. Way to be quick on the uptake.'

Sometimes it's the just little things that make me go 'YAY!'

  2. Hola! I'm just now commenting for the 1st time on your oh-so-funny blog. I love it!

    And I've always wondered what eveyone was talking about...finger...Edward...huh? What?

    I could never see it. Until now.

    So, you're not alone!

  3. Don't feel bad. It only took me seeing the movie on the big screen about 28+ times before I saw it, and that's just because I heard about it on the net... I had to go watch again and look for it. I always thought it was a cute little snap of the fingers, like him saying "darnit!".. not "F U!" sooo not and Edward thing to do.. but Robilicious nonetheless..

  4. Apparently it's cuz Kellan called him another version of a cat in that scene. Hence the very apt reply. Hehe I think there was another scene at the baseball field that Rob did the same thing, I think it was a blooper scene where the cullens were all trying to protect Bella from James and in the frenzy, Rob almost fell. But I may be wrong..

  6. If you hadn't mentioned it, I would have gone the rest of my life not knowing that. For reals...I've been told I have my head up my ass most of the time. In fact, I didn't notice SM's cameo at all and wouldn't have until I read it somewhere.

    Flippin the Bird is my favorite use of my fingers!!

  7. I was with pillow biter on this one. I totally thought Edward had snapped his fingers! And until reading your blog today, wasn't the wiser.

  8. When I saw that (and I missed it the first 7 times I saw the movie in theaters too), I was like, "That's all Rob right there, not Edward." I'm glad they left it in though, it's hot.

  9. I'm really glad they left in also. I think it gives the movie a little more... 'flavor'.

  11. Yeah. I always thought it was him going "Aww shucks!" I didn't know until VERY recently he was giving the bird. And I too find it seriously hot. I am so weird.

  12. I never noticed! I must have seen that 100 times and never noticed! Guess I was too busy looking at his face to notice much else.

  13. LOL! Yes, Robward's face can be a tad distracting, can't it? :)

  14. Serioulsy?! I don't think so.....I always thought he snaps his fingers as in....awww shucks didn't get it (joking around) and when you snap your fingers you use your middle finger....
    I think this is stretching it just a little.
    And to say he mouths FU to Emmett.....

  15. Okay, I just found this blog 2 days ago, so between kids and word, I am slowly moving from previous posts to the current ones. But, after I saw this at work (shame on me!) I had to come home and watch the youtube video..And yes, that is the bird, and yes, he does say F-you, and yes, that is SO HOTT!!!
