Question: When Randall takes a photo of Warren and Jeannie at the airport after the mother's funeral, what happens to the camera he uses? He seems to put it down on something behind Warren, but then walks past Warren to get his luggage. Warren walks forward toward the gate and isn't seen to pick anything up after saying goodbye. I guess he could have, but wouldn't it have been stolen by then if it was left behind? I didn't see Randall put it in a pocket or bag.

Answer: He could have picked it up. Besides, it may not have been stolen, but picked up by security, or otherwise taken to Lost and Found.
