So much gets changed on set, after a script is written. I must confess I'd be surprised if that scene got in on MR's authority alone, especially since SM was against it.
I've developed a habit of defending MR, mainly because I've heard her blamed for things in the Twilight movies that weren't originally in the scripts (like the "spider monkey" line). But the motorcycle scene was an extremely poor decision, and if it was hers I hope she's realised that.

I knew that they'd added that line after the backlash at the MTV movie awards. I hadn't heard that about the producers, though. You would have thought they'd have more sense, but then, these are the people who hired DS to do a movie that's biggest selling point was NOT vampires, but romance. Of course, why not hire someone who has no experience at romance at all. What a sensible thing to do.
I've seen the script of Eclipse, and I could tell what MR was trying to achieve in this scene, because when Bella steps away from Edward at that point she's got the words "strong and independent". I always add another little word which I won't name, because no self respecting girl would ever go off with her lover's rival IN FRONT OF THEIR FRIENDS, for heaven's sake, and expect him to still be there when she comes back.
