Description: A warmer, calmer version of the Flamingo Road theme (marked dolce) as the two lovers embrace; it turns dark as the guard tells Lane that the district attorney wants to see her, causing Lane to worry; transitional music leads into the love theme (next)
On-screen: Dan and Lane embrace

Analysis: Here the Flamingo Road theme is reharmonized and the blue notes are removed (at first) from the melody; mode mixture creates some solemnity and then the cue turns towards Ab major
