In the beginning of the movie Garden State, Sam (played by Natalie Portman) has a hamster that dies and she soon after tearfully eulogizes it in a backyard funeral among many other graves of previous pets. I feel that the death of her rodent symbolizes how small and insignificant Andrew (played by Zach Braff) feels when his character is introduced. He is anxiously aware of his own mortality just as we are here and now.
