Description: Over a tense drone, we hear the source tune "South American Way," which is something Stanley was listening to both before her husband's suicide and before the car accident where she killed the young girl; we assume that she is hearing this tune in her head as she remember these past events; so this is remembered source music that none of the other characters in the scene can hear; the tense drone continues after the record music fades out
On-screen: Stanley reacts
