Easter eggs are small and hidden messages, coincidences, or even mistakes in films and their DVDs.
Easter eggs in Twilight, in no particular order.
- When Bella goes to the Cullens' house, on the dining table, there is a chess board with red and white pieces on the kitchen table (referring to the cover of Breaking Dawn).
- When Edward is 'sleeping' in the hospital, there is an enlarged version of Alice's drawing on a canvas above him.
- When Bella is hospitalized, the fight scene with James is playing on the TV.
- If one looks closely, Victoria can be seen amongst the crowd at the prom.
- In the film, Bella reads page 135 of the book she buys about vampires; this is the same page number of when she finds out about vampires in Twilight.
- Near the door of Bella's room, there is a picture of a wolf. This is a foreshadowing of New Moon.
- In the hospital hallway, there is a sign that says "Sleep Disorders Center"; this could be a hint to Edward not needing to sleep.
- In the same sign it also says cardiovascular problems maybe reffering to vampires needing to feed on blood.
- Bella says to Charlie: "Be careful," and he replies: "Always am." They repeat the same lines in New Moon.
- When Bella is searching for a book about vampires, just above the website she clicks is the one for Little, Brown, the publishers of the Twilight novels.
- Stephenie Meyer makes a cameo appearance at the diner in the Lodge. She is sitting at the counter with her laptop as the waitress says, "Here's your veggie plate, Stephenie."
- At the end of the film, Edward says, "I leave you alone for two minutes, and the wolves descend." This is obviously a reference to Jacob becoming a wolf in New Moon.
- When Bella drops an apple in the cafeteria, Edward holds it in the same position as the Twilight book cover.
- Stephenie Meyer receives a "veggie plate" at the diner, in reference to Edward being a "vegetarian" vampire.
- During the baseball scene, after Carlisle sets up bases and is up to bat, Edward and Emmett can be seen starting to run in the background, but stopping before the close up. (1:16:9)
- When Carlisle bit Edward, he whispered something into his ear. The first time it was "I'm sorry" then "My son". On about the fifth take he said, "It'll be okay."
- When Edward enters the cafeteria, Robert Pattinson's sister, Lizzie, can be heard singing vocals on the soundtrack.
- In almost every scene involving a television, the ending ballet studio scene is being played.
- In the hospital, Edward's eyes are blue instead of gold and later they turn gold again.
- In the scene where Bella goes to the Cullens house for the first time, when Nikki Reed's character had to break the bowl, she actually cut her hands. This is why she is wearing gloves for the scene in the film.
- When Edward tells Bella "you better hold on tight, spider monkey" you can see his harness pulling his shirt up.
- In the baseball scene, Victoria can be seen holding a crystal ball, they used a crystal ball in the filming, but it has been edited to look like a baseball. (1:20:11)
Easter eggs in New Moon, in no particular order.
- In Port Angeles, when Jessica says: "I've got things going on, too", she also says really quickly, "Mike says he just wants to be friends." This is difficult to catch the first time.
- When Bella and Jacob are talking, before Edward calls, an apple is sitting on the windowsill. This may be a reference to the Twilight book cover.
- As the months pass and Bella is sitting at the window, the pictures on her walls slowly disappear. (They also said it in the making of.)
- A poster for Love Spelled Backwards is Love can be seen in the movie theater.
- A poster for Face Punch can be seen outside as Mike and Jake talk.
- As Jacob and Paul fight, the camera topples about 90°. This was later said in the commentry to be a joke, as it is meant to look like the wolves knocked the camera over, as it would be impossible because they are computer animated.
- As Carlisle is pulling the glass from Bella's arm, the camera shows a picture of the bowl in which the glass is getting put into. The blood and white gauze looks like the petals of a red and white ruffled tulip (flower on cover of New Moon).
- The gauze and the blood also looks like a heart, which is going up in flames.
- Just before Jacob almost kisses Bella, he says "Kwop kilawtley", which means "stay with me forever" in Quileute.
- The music playing in the elevator at Volterra is called "Die Fledermaus", which means "the bat" in German. The Volturi made humans believe that vampires can turn into bats so people won't discover the existance of real vampires.
Easter eggs in Eclipse, in no particular order.
- Bella retrieves a note from her drawer that happens to be from Jacob -- the same note that is used as the prologue of the Eclipse. Just as in the novel, lines of text are crossed out rather than erased.
- The quilt that Renee gives to Bella in the trip scene can be seen again in Breaking Dawn - Part 1 when pregnant Bella is laying on the couch.
- When Billy tells the histories of the tribe, you can see him holding a little bag on a cord around his neck. It's barely noticeable in the movie. In the book though, they mention this little bag which supposedly contains vampire ashes.
- In Jacob's room, when Bella visits him after he's been hurt, you can see a painting of La Push beach.
Breaking Dawn - Part 1
Easter eggs in Breaking Dawn - Part 1, in no particular order.
- Stephenie Meyer is seen as a wedding guest.
- During their honeymoon, Bella and Edward play chess using a red and white chess set (like the one presented on the book's cover).
