Description: Solemn sustained winds set up a very somber setting of the Egg Hunt theme as the parents mourn their lost child; it may represent loss of a precious memory; this theme was previously associated with family and children and happiness, and now it has become a symbol of the loss of that happiness and one of the children; the theme has been completely transformed both in sound and in meaning, although the melody is clearly present throughout
On-screen: Chip and Lucy talk about their son
Music annotations: [m. 1] Molto expressivo/ triste; [m. 13] Meno;
