Description
Description: The dark Titus motif is heard in the low register as they talk about Titus; the cue grows and grows to a dramatic climax, adding instruments and slightly accelerating to a grand pause as Field says to Lane "You're really in love, with Dan, aren't you"
On-screen: Field and Lane talk about Titus and Dan

Orchestration annotations: [m. 17] piano + harp soli (let them ring) / trbs (felts) / basses / b'ssn; [m. 19] horns a2 / trbs; [m. 29] timp
