|Mickey in the chair.|
In the film, the chair was the placed so that Ellie sat next to her husband, Carl Fredricksen, who brought it with him in his house to Paradise Falls after her death. Towards the end of the movie, Carl could not get his house to lift up off of the ground due to the fact that the balloons holding it up had lost their helium. With this in mind, Carl threw a lot of things out of his house to lighten the load. While he tossed many of the items outside without taking much care, he took his and Ellie's chairs and placed them neatly side by side on top of Paradise Falls in homage to his late wife.
